A lot of our clients face the frequent problem that they distribute in the project hundreds of Revit® families those are not line based elements and trying to hang or support them using solution. Do not forget that the Smart Hangers application works only with line based elements such as line pipes, ducts, cable trays, conduits and also  with LINE BASED GENERIC MODELS.

All you need is to start your new family in Generic Model line based template:

Rotate iconIt‘s always very important for us that our products meet our customer needs. Therefore when we received few client requests (from the USA, Australia, the Netherlands) to improve work with element view in shop drawings (they asked for a possibility to ‘flip’ the view around), our programming department has started work to develop new functionality.

So last week we added new feature to BIM solution Smart Assemblies that creates assemblies and corresponding views from selected Walls, Parts, Floors, Structural Framings, Architectural Columns, Structural Columns or Structural Foundations in the project. New functionality allows you to control element rotation in all assembly views.

If you want to place different radiators into spaces according to calculated heating load automatically, you have to insert different types of radiators into the project that have different properties. You can read the article Easy Radiator Family Creation with R-Heating Application how to insert different radiators families into the project using BIM solution for Revit® R-Heating. After you insert these families from the .txt file, you will get such a dialog block where you have to indicate what kind of families you will need in the project:

Replace Revit element with BIM Tree Manager-4Welcome all our blog readers! I came back to work today after my summer holidays and started working with new energy. After the rest I don't want to solve complex problems (that's natural for a human being, isn't it?), so my first article is committed to describe a simple client's issue. And the question is: “Has 'Tools 4 Revit' any function in Revit 2014 for replacing door families inside groups with new families besides going in to group edit mode?"
My answer is: yes, of course, it has.

As a valid analytic tool, a comparison matrix serves to determine the basic characteristics of an object. In our case, AGA CAD product managers have prepared comparison matrixes those determine the basic characteristics of BIM software Autodesk Revit without and with additional tools for Revit. Our comparison matrixes outline the most typical features of Revit that are used in modelling, documentation and project data analysis processes.

While reviewing a comparison matrix for Revit MEP users and others (for Revit Architecture or Revit Structure users), our blog readers should consider the following points.

bimm-treeOur programmers have been hardly working during this summer heat until we have got a desirable result: like many other tools for Revit and AGA CAD BIM solutions, BIM Tree Manager is already compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2015!

Our team refers BIM Tree Manager the most powerful BIM solution for Revit that is relevant for all Revit users. It helps solve many Revit user's headaches and makes effortless design, modeling and documentation processes for architects, structural or MEP engineers, and BIM project managers as well.

ComparisonApproximately a week ago we published the matrix with Revit® Architecture vs Revit® Architecture plus AGA CAD tools & BIM solutions feature comparison. Looking at download number of this document we understand that it has attained great interest of Revit users. So at this time we have compiled feature comparison between plain Autodesk® Revit® Structure software vs features of Autodesk® Revit® Structure together with AGA CAD products (Tools 4 Revit and BIM Solutions). See this matrix yourself:

During the developing time of our newest solution for metal wall framing, our team has decided to improve our other BIM solution for timber wall frame design. So on the 1st July we released Wood Framing Wall+ (earlier known as just Wall+) new version 2015.2 (2014.4). It is created using new technology and new Revit® framing families, leaving some parts in user interface that are well known to this software users. So they will not be confused because of the changes and will be able to easily accustom to the new menu and improved wall framing work method.
