Thanks to all who attended our webinar about framing wood/metal truss floors in Revit. It was the last one of 2017!

Our engineer showed how to use our Wood Framing Floor & Truss duo to frame a timber truss floor. (The same can be done for a steel floor using our Metal Framing Floor & Truss software.) If you'd like to see the webinar recording,
drop us an email and we'll send it right to you!

Our final webinar of 2017 will focus on framing truss floors, both wood and metal. You’ll see the whole workflow from having a floor modeled in Revit to creating a framed truss floor. Our engineer will show the workflow using Wood Framing Floor+ for creating a layout and Wood Framing Truss+RT for generating trusses, but the same process can be followed using our corresponding Metal Framing software.

If you're a modeler, designer, engineer, or architect of floors in Revit, don't miss out on our last webinar of the year! We kindly invite all current users of our Framing software as well as potential users to attend this 30-min webinar.

Over the past month or two, our Wood and Metal Framing solutions have been beefed up significantly. Even though we’ve talked about a lot of those updates in several recent blog posts, there are still some points that we haven’t gone over yet. In the latest version of these powerful solutions, you’ll find extended functionality for framing openings, view rotation, mixed wood-metal framing, and more.

To make your work faster and smoother.

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?

Before diving into the details of this update for our framing software, perhaps a little distinction is in order. Due to such frequent updates of our software, a common question always comes up: "Why is your software updated so often?" And we understand. After all, sometimes that little red dot shows up in the Dock more than twice a month!

TOOLS4BIM Dock OverviewThe reason for such a high frequency of updates is because we try to fulfill clients' special requests as soon as possible. Instead of making a client wait a month or two until the next VERSION is released, we strive to implement their specialized requests as quickly as we can by frequently releasing software BUILDS. Of course, these BUILDS may also contain bug fixes – and we're very grateful to clients when they help find these! – but rest assured that most often, that little red dot just means we’ve made one more client’s Revit dream come true.

With that said, let’s get into the new things you can do with your timber or light-gauge steel framing projects using the latest BUILDS of Wood and Metal Framing!

We’d like to thank all those who attended our recent webinar about framing Prefabricated Roof Panels in Revit®. Our architectural engineer Eve demonstrated the workflow of splitting a roof into panels and then framing them, using our software for Wood / Metal Framing Prefab Roof Panels BIM Solution.

If you missed the webinar or would like to view it again, the full recording is available. Just write us at events@aga-cad.com, and we’ll be glad to get that right to you!

Meanwhile, here's a brief look at what the webinar covered.

Ideal for: structural engineers, prefabricated roof designers and manufacturers. The first add-on of its kind for Revit®!


AGACAD's unique software for Prefabricated Roof Panels is up for demonstration! Available for both wood and metal framing applications, this powerful tool seamlessly automates the roof paneling and framing process: begin with Roof Panel Layout to split a roof into panels, and then frame the panels with Roof Panel Frame (Wood version, Metal version). We invite all existing and potential Wood and Metal Framing users to attend this webinar.

Do your wood or metal framing Revit® projects require documentation? The latest enhancement of our Framing solutions will significantly decrease your documentation time for all your projects at once.

AGACAD has enhanced its Wood and Metal Framing software for Revit® by adding new functionality to meet the current needs of industry-leading clients. From now on, you will save even more time on documentation, as you will not have to create new shop drawing sheet templates in every project over and over again. Interested? Read on!

Floor Trusses have been included into Wood Framing Truss+
add-on for Revit!

The influence of structural and non-structural walls to Structural Framing's and Wall's connections in Revit is undoubtable and known to many who struggled with them. Why struggled, you may ask? Basically, if the wall is structural, end point of beam or truss automatically moves to the wall's centerline instead of the external face of wall's structural core.

To prove a point, let's draw a beam in Revit:
