Thanks to all who attended our webinar about Precast Concrete. The recording is up on our YouTube channel. To get the sample project & configurations referred to during the webinar, here are your action items.
Will you be at #AU2018? If so, we invite you to stop by booth A514 to see how our BIM software is driving building design forward. We're especially hoping to meet our existing users face-to-face and talking about your further needs and expectations.
Along with our CEO Donatas and project manager Jonas, three of our BIM application engineers (below), who specialize in architectural and structural engineering, will be present at our booth. They'd be more than happy to chat with you and give you an up-close and in-depth look at our BIM solutions or tools for Revit.
While you're welcome to drop by our booth at any time, we can't guarantee that someone will be able to give you personal, undivided attention on the spur of the moment. For those who are interested in our software and want be sure of having an opportunity to speak one-to-one with our CEO or engineers, we recommend making an appointment to meet at a certain time at our booth.
Alternatively, Jonas can pencil you in over the phone: 00370 694 62335
Smart Details is going to be phased out over the next few months. In its place, we present you Smart Connections, our newest BIM Solution for Revit, that brings additional functionality and more intuitive performance along with a name that more clearly reflects its main purpose.
IMPORTANT NOTE for EXISTING USERS of Smart Details! Although you can use the same configurations as you’ve been using with Smart Details, some of them might be disrupted due to changes in the software. Smart Details will still be available for a time so that you can finish your current projects and then modify your configurations for new projects so that they will mesh with Smart Connections.
The remainder of this post is dedicated to showing what configurations existing users of Smart Details may need to modify when transitioning to Smart Connections. For starters, when making the switch, you might need to modify your wall, column, and beam connection configurations.
If my Smart Details configuration was inserting corbels, column shoes, and bolts as shown below...
...the same configuration used with Smart Connections gives me this messy result.
That’s because the definition of faces of Columns and Foundation elements has been changed in Smart Connections. But this way it will be clearer and more systematic. So, to fix it, you will have to go in and redo that part of your configurations. Check the descriptions below for details on how to do that.
AGACAD’s Wood Framing & Metal Framing software have been enhanced once again. Going forward, opening framing – king studs, trimmers, etc. – can be customized, and you can even create asymmetrical opening configurations. Also, you‘ll have more possibilities in framing walls with intersecting ridge and girder beams, splitting joists, and finally, selecting parts automatically.
As you may already know, it‘s been possible to create custom headers, sills, and top supports for some time now. Because of user feedback, we saw that this functionality was really appreciated, and so now we‘ve extended it, making it possible for you to design your own king studs and trimmers!
Moreover, by not ticking the “Kings are symmetrical” tick mark, you’ll be able to create asymmetrical framing for your opening.
Did you know we became an Autodesk AEC Industry Partner in early October? In light of that, we invite you to join in our webinar that will take a look at the basics of Precast Concrete in Revit and show how you can increase modeling and documentation efficiency.
Please register below for the time most convenient for you and join us for Precast 101 on November 8th!
The 45-minute presentation will be followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
This beginner-level webinar is ideal for structural engineers, designers & drafters, BIM modelers & detailers, CAD engineers & technicians. Also for companies in building design & engineering, consultancy, and manufacturing.
Our company continues the tradition of sharing information not only about our products but also about how to facilitate your everyday tasks in Revit. Below, our structural engineering maestro Valensas shares an insight about equality settings in Revit® dimensions.
In working with various clients, I’ve noticed there are some things that for experienced Revit users look simple but for beginners might be very frustrating.
Recently I’ve received a couple of questions from different users about how to get an Equality Formula in dimensions when they have several of the same dimensions on a dimension chain.
Let’s take a look at the settings we have in Dimension properties.
Thanks to all who attended our webinar on using the new Smart Dimensions feature of Smart Assemblies to automate customized Revit drawings. If you missed out, never fear, the recording is here.
