Recently, Team AGACAD has made quite a lot of significant changes in its Framing software for Revit to automate your work even more yet still provide flexibility. Who wouldn’t want to create and use different Detail configurations for the same Wall Type; calculate Gravity Points for Wall, Floor, or Roof panels; or customize complex dimensions with completely new Smart Dimensioning technology? You’ll be able to do all that and more!

Read on to find out the benefits of the enhanced versions of Wood/Metal Framing Wall+, Floor+, and Roof+.

AGACAD develops new functionality fast to meet the current needs of industry-leading clients. Learn about the major innovations we’ve achieved in our wood and metal framing solutions in the last 6 months.






We kindly invite all existing Wood and Metal Framing users as well as potential users to attend this webinar. You’ll get to hear the latest news and see all the most valuable enhancements.

One of our guiding principles is that our software should meet our clients’ needs. With that in mind, what could be better than giving users the ability to create their own elements? Hence, the need for unique elements arises, usually from structural engineers intending to minimize heating losses or economize material consumption. That’s why from now on, you can create custom headers, sills, and top plate supports in your metal or wood framing project!

Furthermore, that is not the only new feature to be excited about. You’ll also be able to create views with sub-assemblies in the shop drawings, Align Studs with Project Base Point - distribute Studs project-wise instead of wall/floor/roof segment-wise and finally, add customizable complex dimensions with completely new dimensioning technology – Smart Dimensions.

You can learn more about these new features in our blog post about the Latest Advances for Wood/Metal Framing in Revit: Gravity Points, Smart Dimensioning, Detailing Options and more.

Specific topics that the webinar will address include:

Modelling timber frame houses in Revit would be a tough challenge. Can you imagine creating all those framing members one by one?

Luckily, you don’t have to. With the help of AGACAD team’s software, which automates wood framing work with walls, floors and roofs in Revit® projects, all you have to do is predefine rules, and the application will do all the work from design (modelling the frame) and documentation (creating workshop drawings and schedules) to wall segment fabrication and construction.

Smart Walls versions 2016.3 and 2017.2 were released last month with a new possibility to Split Walls in Revit automatically by predefined configuration. We got a fair amount of additional feature requests, so we developed them and released Smart Walls versions 2016.4 and 2017.3!

As you can see in the illustration below, a few more openig types were added, beside Windows and Doors, you can now predefine rules for Generic Openings and System Openings (the ones that are created while editing walls’ profile) as well.

Hello and welcome to the next article for architects about our brilliant solution for Revit - BIM Tree Manager . As you may already know, last month we started a BIM Tree Chimpanzee blog series that teaches how this tool can help architects, structural engineers, and MEP engineers use BIM to its full potential, so stay up to speed and take a look at our previous articles! You can find links at the end of this article.

Project documentation is a time consuming process, yet it is necessary, so it is useful to know a few tricks to make it a lot easier, faster and smoother. It’s simple when your view fits on a single sheet and you don’t need to think about its’ exact position on a sheet, but that isn’t always the case.

So what is the best way to split and place one view on two or more sheets?

Even though technical documentation consumes a lot of time, which could be spent on work that creates value, it has to be done. So why not try automating it as much as possible? In this article, I will overview a few ways how to create schedules with element views in Autodesk® Revit®, so that you could decide which one fits your needs best.

Majority of Autodesk® Revit® users are experiencing a headache that is caused by the time consuming process of project documentation. Even though Revit has legend views, schedules, drafting views, etc., where you can create tables or plain texts with various information that reflect the project, it has some missing functionality as well.

We often get details about certain project parts from other specialists who are working with MS Excel. Of course, it is better and sometimes a must to have everything organized in one place. With that in mind, linking the spreadsheets in MS Excel to our Revit file and then, for example, having an ability to place them in sheets near Revit drawings sound like a great plan. Unfortunately, as you may already know, there is no rational way to do that with plain Revit. Luckily, there is a tool that can help. Excel2R is an excellent AGACAD tool that significantly speeds up project documentation process. This tool quickly imports MS Excel spreadsheets into Revit projects.

When working with Revit®, BIM professionals hope to complete the majority of tasks automatically and concentrate on creative instead of technical work. However, they often discover that modelling process requires more non-creative assignments than expected.

Fortunately, AGACAD tools for Revit save time and money by eliminating unnecessary BIM tasks, letting professionals focus on work that creates value. For example, letting architects to put their mind to creating, let’s say, window design and then generating their legend with lots of different information automatically in a few simple clicks, or letting MEP engineers use their valuable time on designing ducts and then cutting the holes in walls automatically, and so on.
