Greetings to all AGACAD Wood Framing product lovers! We know that there are many of you all over the world who get a lot out of our professional tools for Revit. For those of you who work with prefabricated roof framing and rafter structures, the newly released version of Wood Framing Roof+ has some new features that will be especially helpful for you. Let's take a look.
1. Reduced number of families but more flexible and intelligent. The new families are easier to use than the old ones that they have replaced, and you’ll find that they greatly expand your framing possibilities. Just pay attention when you get around to using them, especially if you decide to use them on an existing project, because new framing configurations will be installed with the new families. (More on the configurations below.)
Recommendation: Finish existing projects with the existing families and framing configurations. Install the new Roof+ version when you start a new project.
Also, note that new families can be renamed with old family names and can be successfully used in new projects with only minor adjustments made to existing configurations.
Here is a side-by-side list of the new families and the old families being replaced in Imperial projects. (For Metric projects, there will be M_ at the beginning).
