Check out the Feb-Mar 2019 issue of our AGACAD Advances newsletter!

AGACAD’s recent 28th birthday party was brief. The team met in the lobby for a toast to our clients and partners worldwide, then got back to building even better digital construction solutions. Delivering tomorrow’s AEC. We hope you enjoy this update you on where we and BIM are going.

There’s news about our framing, MEP and detailing software. And what’s really hot these days is precast concrete. We’re on our way to brief industry players at North America's Precast Show 2019 – this time as an Autodesk AEC Industry Partner singled out for our precast tools for Revit.

Below you’ll find links to Dynamo scripts for #rebar in Revit, they'll be free for existing users of our Precast Concrete software, and a whole lot more. Also, be among the first to see our brand-new showreel about design and fabrication of precast concrete. [WATCH NOW]

Read the newsletter for a quick overview.

Here is the grand finale in our Dynamo Scripts for Rebar in Revit video series. Settings for each type of reinforcement are all in one script. Just select the types of rebar – vertical, horizontal, diagonal, U-bar, main mesh – you want to insert, fine-tune the settings, and run the script on selected walls. In the video below you can see rebar inserted automatically using only one Dynamo script.

Part I: Diagonal reinforcement for openings and U-bar for wall perimeters.
Part II: Vertical reinforcement for edges of openings and walls.
Part III: U-shaped reinforcement.
Part IV: Running multiple scripts on the same wall

Stay tuned — when these scripts are all finished, they'll be free for existing users of our Precast Concrete software!

The latest versions of AGACAD’s Wood/Metal Framing Wall BIM Solutions for Revit have been enhanced by implementing some highly requested features. Now they’re more flexible than ever with additional possibilities for distributing studs and sheathing to help automate even more tasks of your complex framing projects in Revit. Also, you’ll have better control over framing joined openings, top plate supports and more.

Let's dive in!

1. Align Stud Spacing with Frame and Opening Sides

With this new feature in Wood/Metal Framing Wall+, you’ll be able to distribute studs by a predefined spacing and restart the spacing at king studs or the sides of openings.

A hot-topic among precast designers is automating rebar placement in Revit. We've been working on development of Dynamo scripts to do just that. During February 2019, we'll be releasing a series of videos – Dynamo Scripts for Rebar in Revit – showing what we've come up with for placing different types of rebar.

Here's Part I, diagonal reinforcement of openings and U-bar for wall perimeters.



Be on the lookout for future videos about other possibilities, including U-bar reinforcement of opening edges, wall edges, and main reinforcement. When these scripts are all finished, they'll be free for our existing Precast Concrete users!

Thank you!
