The other week we were in Växjö, Sweden exhibiting at Forum Wood Framing Nordic with our partner AEC. While there, we met a lot of wood building designers and manufacturers who liked our software, especially because of the flexibility it offers in Revit. We also had the pleasure of meeting some of our existing clients, which is always a highlight for us these kinds of events!

We showed our latest in wood framing for conference attendees who were interested in our timber software. The forum provided the perfect opportunity to demonstrate our newest solution — Wood Framing CLT — to the Scandinavian market.

In this webinar we'll show how to use our Smart Assemblies BIM solution – and particularly its revamped Smart Dimensions feature – to further automate your shop drawings in Revit. Whatever your line of work (wood/metal framing, precast, etc.), if you have to make shop drawings, this webinar is for you. We invite you to join!

What you'll see in this webinar:

  • Automatic dimensioning rules in Smart Dimensions;
  • Available settings in Smart Dimensions and what they mean;
  • The difference between making dimensions using Smart Dimensions vs. the default settings of Smart Assemblies;
  • Examples of dimensioning in shop drawings used in various countries around the world.

It’s time to demonstrate the new workflow and technology created especially for cross-laminated timber (CLT). In this webinar about CLT, you’ll see how to create CLT panels for walls, floors, and roofs by using AGACAD’s Wood Framing software and sample families, distribute details, and even design ventilated facades!

What's the latest building style you can frame with AGACAD‘s Framing software for Autodesk® Revit®? Heavy Timber and Post-&-Beam structures! The new BIM software Wood Framing Oak is powerful and flexible in automating the design process for even the most complex and unique structures – it’s just a matter of figuring out a workflow and setting up required families.

We've already covered multi-layered timber frames and frames with SIP panels for walls, floors and roofs, high-quality ventilated facades, and architectural curtain walls with highly detailed elements. So, now it's time to move on to framing with massive timbers.

Using Wood Framing OAK and sample families, you can create heavy-timber-framed walls, floors and roofs. Also, distribute and manage details used in connections with cuts common for oak frames by using our BIM solution Smart Details and, finally, prepare shop drawings, cut lists, and even export wood elements and details to any CNC machine and CAD/CAM production line, including Hundegger and Weinmann.


Framing the supporting structure and creating connections with cuts common for OAK Frames

Once Walls, Floors and Roofs have been modeled in Revit, it’s time to frame them. Wall+, Floor+ and Roof+ modules (they are included in BIM solution Wood Framing OAK) have all the features that are required to predefine your own configurations for framing. Standardization and automation of the wall, floor and roof framing process and shop drawing generation allows you to skip major hurdles in building design. These are the prominent time-saving Wall+, Floor+ and Roof+ functions.

This September we’ll be exhibiting with our Sweden-based partner AEC at Forum Wood Framing Nordic. Hosted by Linnaeus University, the conference will take place in Växjö, Sweden on September 26–27. The line-up of exhibitors in recent years has propelled this forum to a prominent position as a must-attend-conference for wood construction academics and practitioners in the Nordics. We’re proud to be a part of it this year with AEC. If you’ll be there, come visit us at Booth 28!

The U-value and other analytical properties for windows and doors in Revit are set by default and come from the ASHRAE standard. Sometimes, though, you need different U-values for heating load calculations. So, how do you change these hardcoded values?

You can find these constructions on your computer: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit 2018\en-US\Constructions.xml

Be aware that the “Construction.xml” file is different for different Revit Language Packages. So just make sure you modify the right one.

Thank you!
