AGACAD will be at BILT Europe in Aarhus, Denmark, on October 5-7.

Visit us at booth #20 for a preview of BIMAXON – the new-generation building information management platform we plan to launch during Autodesk University in November.

Imagine data from all sources in only one place with real-time access, for BIM with infinite dimensions and more. We’ll have a HoloLens to show it off with AR – one of an unbelievable number of potential uses.

We’d like to thank all those who attended our recent webinar about framing Prefabricated Roof Panels in Revit®. Our architectural engineer Eve demonstrated the workflow of splitting a roof into panels and then framing them, using our software for Wood / Metal Framing Prefab Roof Panels BIM Solution.

If you missed the webinar or would like to view it again, the full recording is available. Just write us at events@aga-cad.com, and we’ll be glad to get that right to you!

Meanwhile, here's a brief look at what the webinar covered.

In August we were in Toronto for BILT North America. Now, we’re getting ready to head to BILT Europe, which will be held October 5-7 in Aarhus, Denmark. We hope many of you will be able to come, and if you are, please come visit us at booth 20!

Along with all of our BIM Solutions software, our engineers Jokubas and Valensas and CEO Donatas are excited to show something else as well: where we see BIM heading. Imagine you're walking through a building and when you look at something -- a door, window, vent, light fixture, anything in your model -- you see all and only the information you need.

Here at AGACAD, that's what we envision. A whole new realm of possibilities is opening up with AR (Augmented Reality) and BIM working together. We'll be showing a cloud-based solution for classification of elements called BIMAXON. The principal of BIMAXON is to collect all needed data into a common data environment (CDE) and then distribute only the necessary data to the relevant person(s) and devices at just the right time throughout a building's lifecycle. (You can read more about BIMAXON at our CEO Donatas Aksomitas' blog that he started earlier this year.)

BIMAXON is capable of reading and exporting data from Autodesk® Revit®, Autodesk® NavisWorks®, and in the near future we plan to launch it on other BIM-based software. BIMAXON data is collected in cloud-based servers, which can be accessed by a device, like a phone, tablet, or headgear. The latter, however, brings AR (Augmented Reality) into the picture by using a device like Microsoft® HoloLens®, which can be used for Facility Management. We have already used our BIM workflow for existing buildings that do not have a BIM model by using 3D-reality-capturing technology in combination with CDE and AR: we scan the building, collect the data in the cloud, and then display it through HoloLens.

We’ll have a pair of HoloLens that you can try out for yourself by dropping by at our booth (#20) at BILT. See with your own eyes what’s up-and-coming!

See you in Aarhus! #BILTeur


What is BILT?

It’s basically a gathering of BIM experts from around the world to learn from each other. Although the conference has undergone a name-change – formerly known as the Revit Technology Conference (RTC) – it draws Revit professionals (like us!) and, at the same time, seeks to attract users of other technologies. The BILT Conference serves to reach out to a wider community of professionals who work at various stages along the whole spectrum of a building’s lifecycle. As a dual-purpose acronym, “BILT” stands for “Buildings Infrastructure Lifecycle, supported by Technology” and also “Building and bringing Industry Leadership Together.”

Thanks to all who participated in our webinar on using ‘Template Project’ for framing project documentation in Revit®!

Here's an AGACAD Sneakpeek:

During the webinar, our architectural engineer showed how to:

  • Frame walls including main framing, nailers and sidings
  • Easily generate Sheathing layouts by predefined configurations
  • Create a Template Project from scratch or from an existing project
  • Set up a Template Project in your Current Project
  • Create Shop Drawings with automatically generated sheets

For the full webinar recording, please contact us at events@agacad.com

Please feel free to download a free trial to try out our framing software for yourself!

Innovative new approaches to BIM data management and exchange are the focus of “BIMAXON: BIM to the point” – the blog for BIM specialists and AEC professionals by AGACAD CEO Donatas Aksomitas, at www.bimaxon.com. We encourage you to visit and subscribe.

In the latest posts, he details work with a Norwegian manufacturer of timber-frame homes to implement a set-of-information (SOI) approach to building information management at an international factory it runs. The case illustrates the great benefits of BIM when optimized to give each actor just the information they need at just the right time throughout a building’s lifecycle.

By now, a good portion of our users have probably begun using our 2018 TOOLS4BIM Dock. What’s different about the latest version of our Dock?

For those unfamiliar with our “Dock,” it serves as the access-point to all trials, license activations, and updates of our Revit® add-ons. When you download it from our website, it appears as a window within your Revit® environment. Use it to manage all the tools you have from AGACAD, find help pages and tutorials, get support, and make purchases.

Thank you!
