In this webinar, we'll show the latest enhancements made to the Rafter framing module that is now part of our Wood & Metal Roof framing software. Now creating rafters automatically is much smoother and more intuitive, just as it has always been for walls, floors, and prefabricated roofs. The powerful Rafter tool seamlessly automates the roof splitting and framing process: split a roof by faces and then frame it with Roof + (Wood version, Metal version).

We invite all existing and potential Wood and Metal Framing users to attend this webinar.

Join our webinar and see how to:

  • Automatically split roofs by faces according to any architectural roof shape;
  • Define detailed, multi-layer timber/steel rafters for roof framing in a snap using fully customizable rules and templates;
  • Automate shop drawings, including sorting, tagging, dimensioning and scheduling of all frames and their elements.

New versions of our Wood & Metal Framing software for Revit have been released! The improvements included in Wall+, Floor+, and Roof Panel Frame solutions let you easily sort and number walls, structural framing elements, and structural connection elements by your own specific rules configured via Sort Mark. Also, by using additional options you’ll be able to split parts and number elements at the same time as a wall is being framed — and update the details automatically!

In the enhanced versions, you’ve got these new functions in the “Shop Drawings” menu:

  • Numbering Setup – opens a window in which you’ll be able to set numbering rules for walls, structural framing, and structural connection elements by using functionality from the framing software and Sort Mark configurations
  • Number Walls – numbers all walls by the configuration, set in the “Numbering Setup”
  • Number Elements – numbers all structural framing and structural connection elements by the configuration, set in the “Numbering Setup”

Our third webinar of 2018 will be on February 15th. This one's about creating complex connections automatically, and we'll begin with auto-generating multi-layered wall/floor/roof framing in Revit. That's just the preparation for the fun part, though! Once we've done the framing, we‘ll see how to distribute various connection details (fasteners, hardware, etc.) automatically using our Wood & Metal Framing software and, for even more complex situations, Smart Details, which lets you define rules and insert hundreds of elements throughout your project with a few clicks.

How can you distribute details with the Framing Software?
What are the benefits and possibilities of using Smart Details as well?
Find out in this webinar!

We kindly invite all current users of our Framing software as well as potential users to attend. If you're a modeler, designer, engineer, or architect in Revit, we warmly welcome you to join in this webinar. Our engineer will show just how quick and simple handling fasteners and hardware in Revit can be. Come and see how to do it for yourself!

We're hosting a webinar to highlight a new function of our Framing software: automated framing of wood or metal floors. Whether your floors are simple or complex, you can frame them with speed and ease. We're here to show you how in this webinar!

We kindly invite all current users of our Framing software as well as potential users to attend this half-hour webinar. Come hear about the latest features that make framing floors in Revit easier than ever.

Registration is open and free!

In this webinar about framing timber or light-gauge steel floors, you’ll see the entire workflow: from having a simple floor modeled in Revit to auto-generating multilayer floor framing using Wood Framing Floor+. Not enough?
