In case you missed it, the user interface of our framing software for wood and metal walls and floors got a makeover this past July. Changes to the UI can be seen in Wall+ and Wall+M as well as Floor+ and Floor+M. This UI update will be applied to our roof framing solutions in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Although the UI certainly looks different, rest assured that all previous functions are still there; they've just been re-arranged and complemented with icons. To see where commands can be found in the new UI of Wall+ and Floor+, check out the images of the ribbons below. (Wall+M and Floor+M are very similar, respectively.)

Autodesk University bannerWe're looking forward to exhibiting at Autodesk University this coming November in Las Vegas. Hopefully many of you – our clients and contacts – will be there to share ideas about driving building design forward.

Have you registered to go to #AU2019?

Our focus will be on BIM to Fabrication, particularly for wood framing, metal framing, precast concrete, and MEP work. There's been a lot of development in AEC, and we're staying at the forefront of it to make sure our software users have most productive BIM Solutions and add-ons for Revit out there.

MEp Hangers iconThis Sneakpeek is about the new features that were added to MEP Hangers, in particular the option that allows you to place hangers depending on length, diameter, size, shape, or any other MEP element parameter of your choice.

We hosted a full-length webinar in May 2019 on this topic: Custom Rules for Placing Hangers & Supports for MEP in Revit (Thanks to all who attended!) While there, please subscribe to our YouTube channel!

Wooden homes are one of the cornerstones of American culture. That’s something we’ve come to know very well while working with our clients from the United States.

Europeans are often surprised when they see how densely timber houses are built throughout the US. Whether it’s a suburb or a big city, you’ll find whole neighborhoods built from wood; building after building, lined up one after the other, reminiscent of the idyllic suburban areas of the 1950s.

In fact, not much has changed since the 1950s. With 93% of new houses in 2018 built using wooden materials, Americans are sticking to their lumber with pride.

The user interface of our Wood/Metal Framing software is going to be enhanced next week! After this update, users will see the changes in Wall+ and Wall+ M as well as Floor+ and Floor+ M. A separate update for Roof+ and Roof+ M will be coming out soon.

Don‘t worry, no functionality will be lost due to the UI update: the commands will simply be re-arranged and complemented with icons. In addition to the UI change, a few new features are going to be added as well.

But before we get to the new features, let's quickly get familiarized with the renewed ribbons.

House building is an expensive long-term project that requires lots of planning in advance, with any mistakes that are made resulting in wasted time and additional expenses. The good news is that there is a way to avoid human error and build a house that is both eco-friendly and cost-effective. Using structural insulated panels (SIPs) not only enables you to assemble the structure as easy as a doll house at the construction site, but with the right software also speeds up other building phases like modelling, documentation, and fabrication.

What are SIPs?

Most house builders go through the traditional motions of setting up traditional timber framing and insulation. But these guys obviously didn’t feel like dealing with stick-frames; they decided to stray from the rule book, get some SIP panels, and assemble a house in two weeks. Sounds almost like building with Legos, doesn’t it? The secret is that SIP panels already have both framing and insulation inside of them – a foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB).
