We are pleased to announce that our Wood Framing BIM Solution for Revit has been recognized as an AEC Industry Partner solution by Autodesk. It joins our Precast Concrete software, which made us one of the first AEC Industry Partners back in October 2018.

“This is recognition of the value that our add-on solutions provide – the time, money and stress that they save – for Revit users all over the world by automating much of their work and adding powerful new functionality for specific industries, regions and firms. We look forward to engaging even more with Autodesk to address the ever-evolving real-life needs of BIM professionals,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the CEO of AGACAD.

AEC Industry Partners are trusted technology providers that Autodesk selects for their discipline-specific solutions which complement its own offerings. Partners build on top of Autodesk’s BIM and cloud platforms to enable customers to work more efficiently, deliver better designs, and reduce waste. The designation of AEC Industry Partners is part of a strategy for bringing new and transformational technologies into industry workflows.

“We see partners like AGACAD as being critical to helping our engineering customers deliver BIM-based services in a more profitable way. They are able to provide the needed automation and customization for factories to scale up their businesses more quickly,” said Michael Gustafson, Autodesk’s Industry Strategy Manager for Structural Engineering.

Does finding content in your Revit® library eat up too much time? How about modifying Revit families?

If so, then sign up for our free webinar about efficient BIM content management using our Smart Browser software for Revit. It makes browsing, sorting, managing, and controlling Revit families a breeze and drastically reduces the time required to modify them.

Especially for BIM managers, BIM content creators, and Revit users. Whether you're a seasoned user of Smart Browser or you're curious to see what this BIM content management software is capable of, we hope you'll join in!

Among the updates we'll show are:

  • enhanced UI. (The old UI looked like this... → )
  • load multiple Families or Family Types simultaneously
  • change view to thumbnail view (large/medium) or list view
  • dock the Smart Browser window in Revit – just like you can with Revit’s Properties or Project Browser windows
  • auto-sort and renumber Revit elements using the integrated Sort Mark add-on (more on that after the jump)
