This Wednesday, we’re hosting a webinar in coordination with Itannex, our Partner in the Netherlands, about precast walls in Revit®. It'll be held in English.

October 18th at 10:00-10:30 AM CEST (Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Johannesburg)

That's 3 AM in Chicago, 9 AM in London, 12-noon in Dubai, 7 PM down-under in Sydney. Wherever you may be, it'd be our pleasure to have you join us!

What can you expect from this webinar?

  • Split Revit walls into wall panels
  • Sort and number wall panels
  • Insert details, connections, and cuts on wall panels
  • Create assemblies, drawings with automatic dimensions, scheduling, and sheet

The October 2017 edition of “AGACAD ADVANCES” takes a look at new and improved features of Wood & Metal Framing, a success story with Precast Concrete, automating MEP hangers and supports, and more. Get the scoop!

AGACAD Advances October 2017

Also highlighted in this edition is the upcoming release of BIMAXON. Something we've been looking forward to for quite a while!

Some AutoCAD add-ons use a workaround that inserts a blank element where you want an opening in a wall or floor. We know many clients have had this experience, for example, with AutoCAD MagiCAD plug-in. But usually you need real openings, not provisions that cause clashes and fail to reflect the actual structural geometry. So, a common question we get is “Can you insert a real opening in place of a void that came from an IFC file?” With Cut Opening, you can!

Here’s a workflow you can follow to insert REAL openings in your Revit project!

It's time for our next webinar! This time around it's about framing metal walls or light-gauge steel walls (or whatever you call it in your area) in Revit®. New features in the latest release will be demonstrated, including improvements for bracing and headers with diagonal members.


In the span of 40 minutes, our structural engineer Valensas will show how to use our Metal Framing Wall software to do the following:

Sort Mark is a powerful tool AGACAD developed that can renumber graphical, architectural, and structural Revit® elements in many ways. It determines swing direction and orientation and adds them as properties, recalculates shared coordinates, and much more. While all that sounds great, it’s gotten even better with the latest release.

Remember Sort Mark? Now it will remember you!

In the latest version, you’ll be able to add a Configuration File’s Location.

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.

Say you have an opening on a wall in your Revit® project. Have you ever needed to measure the distance from the floor above down to the top, center, or bottom of the opening and write that data as a parameter to the opening family? We got a special request from the German market to make a new calculation method in our Cut Opening tool that could do just that. Here’s what we came up with: Level Above!

The “Level Above” elevation calculation feature can be found here in our Cut Opening Software:

When you apply it in a project, it looks like this:

Ideal for: structural engineers, prefabricated roof designers and manufacturers. The first add-on of its kind for Revit®!


AGACAD's unique software for Prefabricated Roof Panels is up for demonstration! Available for both wood and metal framing applications, this powerful tool seamlessly automates the roof paneling and framing process: begin with Roof Panel Layout to split a roof into panels, and then frame the panels with Roof Panel Frame (Wood version, Metal version). We invite all existing and potential Wood and Metal Framing users to attend this webinar.

Thank you.
