Precast Concrete Solution enables you to quickly and easily model prefabricated concrete walls, floors, and columns and get full project updates in the Revit platform in real time. Create element views with automatic dimensions, and generate bills of materials and shop drawings for quality production and accurate assembly on site.

We already did a webinar to overview Precast Concrete solution and also two webinars about how to work with precast floors and walls in Revit environment. Now it‘s time for the last part of Precast Concrete trilogy – precast concrete columns and beams (Check it out a related blog post: Review of Revit Add-ons for Precast Concrete Beams and Columns).

Please join us on June 1st!

Thanks to the enhanced Wood/Metal Framing Wall+, Floor+ and Roof+ software, you’ll be able to add customizable, complex dimensions with completely new dimensioning technology – Smart Dimensions.

Although in the past you could also add dimensions to your shop drawings automatically, with Smart Dimensions, you can configure them from the simplest variation, where dimensions will be added only to a predefined layer, to more complex variations, where all layers will be dimensioned.

In this article, I will overview a few examples of how you can apply our Revit add-ons in our Precast Concrete Suite (Compatible with REVIT 2016, 2017, 2018) to deal with the design of Structural Framing and Structural Column category elements.

This solution have tools for insertion of details, cuts, and connections, automatic sorting of columns and beams, and shop drawing preparation with automatic dimensions and sheets.

On this occasion we are hosting free webinar. Please join us on June 1st!

So let’s take a look at a couple of examples:

AGACAD is gearing up for the BILT North America Conference to be held in Toronto, Canada at the Westin Harbour Castle this summer from August 3-5. And our very own MEP pro Jokubas Vaisvila will be presenting!

Jokubas will give a presentation about builder’s work, specifically as it relates to making openings and holes for MEP services. Sharing what he knows about modelling builder’s work in Revit, he will demonstrate Dynamo and Revit add-in workflows to make openings in architectural or structural elements. His goal? To make attendees’ lives easier.

Another update of Smart Assemblies is released. Sometimes we encounter small issues which we can be solved by investing some more time or using workarounds, but when that involves everyday procedures, it can make modelling and documenting in Revit quite annoying. I would like to let you know that using this Revit add-on your documentation procedures will be greatly upgraded. In this blog I will mention only the last features implemented in newest release, but to see all the enhancements implemented into Smart Assemblies – see webinars, E-Help files, blogs or request a live online demonstration.

In new Smart Assemblies release you can have up to 3 views of the same type with the same View Templates. For example, create 3 Front Views, select same View Template, but select different numbers for View Number. This feature removes the need to create 3 different View Templates – one for each Front view, which was necessary in previous versions.

Other feature now allows user to automatically rotate selected views by 90 degrees in both directions – clockwise and counter clockwise.

This webinar is intended for structural engineers, structural modelers, architects and BIM coordinators.

Previously Cut Opening solution could layout openings only for MEP line based elements. From now on, Cut Opening is capable of working with Structural Framing category too! (Related blog post: NEW FEATURE! Cut Opening for Beams)

On this occasion, we are hosting a 30-min WEBINAR. Please join us on May 18th!

Previously Cut Opening solution could layout openings only for MEP line based elements. Today I’m glad to announce that Cut Opening is capable of working with Structural Framing category! Join us on May 18th for a FREE WEBINAR.

Cut Opening is using Interference Checking based in Revit and transfers all the clash data to Cut Opening software. We are using special workflows to compute all the clashes and add all needed data to openings.

The Cut Opening software allows users to insert openings with predefined opening size, side, bottom, top and depth offsets, join openings if they are near each other or cut openings for elements that are partially clashing. Let me introduce the configurations that are available:

Opening size:

There are two different ways to define opening size for beams:

1. Apply Cut Offset:

  • Users can define Cut Offset around the element
  • Users can define Top and Bottom offsets
