Our hardworking team tries to ensure all Revit® users' expectations. Therefore, we’re not only updating our existing products but we create new products too.

Smart HangersWe know that MEP engineers, constructors, and contractors need to be able to prepare construction documents with hangers and supports because without them the Revit MEP model is incomplete. We want to make Revit users' life easier; therefore our last great job is a new BIM solution Smart Hangers. This application for Autodesk® Revit® MEP and Structure users is launched publicly on 16th of October, 2013.

If you ever had a question how to make duct/pipe supports or hangers in Revit MEP easier, Smart Hangers is simply the best solution to meet the case.

This week I have received an interesting question: Working with Revit, we do have a need to copy architectural walls and openings then convert them to structural. We usually model all structural walls and openings from scratch. Can you offer more clever solution?

Yeah, it’s a known issue. I’ll try to explain how to make this design process faster. Actually we have a solution for the cases if you want to copy architectural walls and openings then convert them to structural elements.

The efficiency of structural engineer’s work has always been prior to the material efficiency of the design he does. There is a turning point where the priorities change.

That is when efficiency of work becomes irrelevant comparing to the design decision efficiency. The main problem is a repetitive work that consumes most of project time and does not add any value. For example, drafting, difficult calculations, etc. Process of design should be cut down to a two-step process:

Decision -> Design

In Europe, the testing of a new construction classification standard is on its way. The new BIM classification standard is being developed in Denmark by cuneco, a centre for productivity in construction. The new BIM classification standard is very important for the European Union, and there has been general interest worldwide as well.

cunecoThe new BIM classification standard can easily be adapted by any country.

Thank you.
