Engineering design professionals are now being challenged to create multi-story buildings that are not only economical and sustainable but design tasks should be accomplished quickly and accurately as well.

AGACAD company has created a new framing technology that allows to frame multi-story houses 10 times faster!
Using brand new Multi-Framing tools Revit® user can easily transfer framing elements between same model groups or identical walls/floors in different levels of buildings. Building designer can predefine what elements he is going to affect: all walls/floors from the same model group, from the instance model group, or selected wall/floor should be unique in the building.

All changes in the selected frame will be automatically transferred and overwritten into identical walls according to filtering rules.

Join our free webinar and see how to easily accomplish structural design for multi-level steel-framed buildings.

AGA CAD Ltd. is a developer of professional applications for Autodesk® Revit® software for sectors of architecture, engineering, construction, fabrication and facility management. The company often receives positive feedback from clients, and this confidence in AGACAD software helps consistently expand not only the number of clients, but also a network of TOOLS4BIM product representatives in various countries around the world.

The latest company achievement: AGACAD has expanded its Scandinavian reseller network for its Wood & Metal Framing products’ distribution to clients in Northern Europe. In the beginning of April, a distribution agreement between AGACAD and Norwegian IT Company Focus Software was finally signed. Focus Software AS, a leading design software solution provider, became the distribution partner in Norway for Wood & Metal Framing Solutions.

"We chose the AGACAD framing solutions because they provide great options for working with wood and steel, both very popular materials in Norwegian building projects. In addition, the integration with Revit makes these solutions perfect for a streamlined BIM-workflow. AGACAD is also an experienced provider of these solutions, and we are very confident in their products and the opportunities they provide," comments Tora Teig, Marketing Coordinator of Focus Software AS.

AGACAD CEO Donatas Aksomitas is glad that trust in company's BIM solutions is continuously growing and the circle of distributors expanding: "We are happy that more and more software vendors see wide opportunities of our Framing products and want to represent them to their clients. The partnership agreement signed with the Swedish company AEC AB a year ago already yields positive results, so we hope that many designers in Norway will appreciate our BIM solutions for framing too."

Focus Software AS along with AGACAD will cater for the Norwegian market. Focus Software has decided to specialize in IT solutions for framing, thus this AGACAD distributor has gained an exclusive right to sell Wood Framing and Metal Framing solutions that automate creation of detailed wall, floor and roof framing design.
