The whole point of creating BIM models is to reap as much benefit from them as possible. One benefit for structural engineers is that when you create a physical model, you can create an analytical model simultaneously, saving you time later because you can send it straight to structural analysis software instead of creating it from scratch.

So, with that in mind, here is one tip about analytical lines for beams.

If you want to have a physical beam under another beam but keep the analytical lines at the same level, then use the z-offset in the beam properties instead of moving the beam down.

Analytical and physical model goes into the same location:

Q: I want to use the split pipes command to generate fabrication cut sheets for our sprinkler lines. I need to split all the lines into segments of equal lengths. How can I add a starter length of pipe? e.g. The first segment needs to be less than all the others and will be cut in field to adjust to where our sprinkler mains have been run.

A: See video :-)

Q: Is it possible to batch-change the category of families in a project?

A: Yes. You can change the category of your families in batches by using Smart Browser. Here's how.


To exchange families inside your project, you have to add an extra parameter for those families and write some notes for Smart Browser. Smart Browser doesn’t see when you change categories, and it can’t upload a new family, but if you change category and add a parameter – it will see and change the families in your project. Let's see how to do it.

AGACAD will be in Paris for BIM World on March 28-29. We’re very glad to be sharing a stand with our French partner Eurostudio. Come see us at booth 202!

At this event, our team will be showing our lineup of Revit tools as well as demonstrating BIMAXON, a new-generation BIM platform that gives real-time access to data from whatever sources are being used (Archicad, IFC, Navisworks, Revit, Tekla, etc.). One of the primary purposes of BIMAXON is to reduce the information delivered to BIM actors to only what's necessary – no more, no less. And of course delivering it at the right time in the building life-cycle process. That means eliminating unnecessary information that clogs up our heads and IT systems. Which translates into increased efficiency and accuracy all around.

This month, our partner in the Middle East, Omnix International, and their partner, Promedia Qatar, are hosting seminars entitled “Building BIM Together: Future of BIM and Digital Construction”. They will be held in Qatar and Kuwait. For those located in either of these countries, this is an excellent way to get a close-up look at some great BIM software!

As you may already know, our framing software for Revit not only creates multilayered frames for walls, floors, and roofs but also assists in designing high-quality ventilated facades, architectural curtain walls with highly detailed elements, and you guessed it – frames with structural insulated panels (SIPs) or cross-laminated timber (CLT). The software’s powerful and flexible features automate design tasks for all kinds of structures – it‘s just a matter of figuring out a workflow and using the required families! In this webinar, you’ll see how to create frames with SIPs and CLT for walls, floors, and roofs by using AGACAD’s Wood Framing software and sample families.
