FREE Webinar: Holes in Structures for MEP Elements – 3 BIM Workflows

Webinar has ended, but its recording is available upon request on

While working on a project as a team, there are often cases when it becomes difficult to control the BIM processes because the designing is carried out using different software or in different planes of the same software. Communication problems are especially noticeable when you need to cut holes in architectural elements of Revit® project.

A variety of software in BIM team leads to differences in openings upon upload. Therefore, we want to show you several different ways of opening insertion that are adapted to various BIM teams’ working methods.

Revit users spend a lot of time adding and tagging openings manually, but using our BIM solution, Cut Opening, they can cut holes for MEP elements in structural elements automatically. Cut Opening is adapted to various workflows of BIM teams. It doesn’t matter what way you choose to make your project - using only Revit or Revit and oter software - with Cut Opening you can add holes easily and quickly in any case. Take part in our latest webinar and see for yourself that it is true.

Holes in Structures for MEP Elements - 3 BIM Workflows

Live on Thursday, March 3rd, 2016

In this 45 minute webinar, you‘ll see how Cut Opening application can be adjusted to different workflows of a BIM team. Main topics that are relevant for Structural Engineers, MEP Engineers, and Architects:

  • Workflow to cut holes in simple Revit File;
  • Workflow to cut holes in Linked Revit File (both ways: Architecture linked into MEP & MEP linked into Architecture);
  • Workflow to cut holes for IFC MEP elements.


Webinar presenter:

Cut Opening

This BIM solution defines and reserves spaces in Revit models for ducts, pipes, cable trays and conduits. Structural engineers and architects can then review, revise, and create the approved holes with just one click.

Corresponding openings are designed automatically based on the location and types of clashes detected for MEP elements in current, linked, or IFC files.
