What's the latest building style you can frame with AGACAD‘s Framing software for Revit? Heavy Timber and Post-&-Beam structures! The new Wood Framing Oak software is powerful and flexible, automating the design process for even the most complex and unique structures – it’s just a matter of figuring out a workflow and required families.

We've already covered multi-layered timber frames and frames with SIP panels for walls, floors and roofs, high-quality ventilated facades, and architectural curtain walls with highly detailed elements. So now it's time to move on to framing with massive timbers. We invite you to join our webinar!

You’ll also see how to distribute and manage details for creating connections with cuts common for oak frames using Smart Details and, finally, how to prepare shop drawings, cut lists, and even export wood elements and details to any CNC machine and CAD/CAM production line, such as Hundegger, Weinmann, etc.

In this webinar we'll concentrate on NEW FEATURES that have been added to Precast Concrete, specifically, generating shop drawings with Smart Assemblies and inserting connection hardware with Smart Details.

In the new version of the Smart Assemblies module, you'll see how to work with assemblies that were already created in Revit, how to tweak the position, depth, and rotation of selected views and place legend views. And most impressive – updates for dimensioning hosted details. As for the Smart Details tool, new features allow for better handling of configurations and connection families, so we’ll see those as well in this webinar.

Ideal for structural engineers, designers & drafters, BIM modelers & detailers, and CAD engineers & technicians. The features in this webinar will help our precast clients – firms in building design & engineering, consultancy, and manufacturing all over the world save copious amounts of time on shop drawings.

Great news for users of our ROOF framing software – Cut Opening is now an included feature!

Cut Opening is extremely useful because, before you frame a roof automatically with Roof+, you need to have openings for fire safety components throughout your Revit model where ducts, pipes, cable trays, and conduits intersect with the roof. And Cut Opening makes all those openings for you.

Whether you use the wood or metal roof framing BIM Solution, Cut Opening will be provided for no extra fee to existing clients.

Current clients who want to utilize Cut Opening in their roof framing work, please contact us for a new activation code!
