As a way to say thank you for being our clients, participating in our webinars, trialing our software, and following us on social media, we're going to unveil a special thank-you offer for select software for Revit as the year draws to a close. (In other words, sweet deals are coming your way.)
Details due out next week, so stay tuned!
In the meantime... now is the time to take a trial and get a free live demo since the thank-you offer will have a limited duration.
Will you be at #AU2018? If so, we invite you to stop by booth A514 to see how our BIM software is driving building design forward. We're especially hoping to meet our existing users face-to-face and talking about your further needs and expectations.
Along with our CEO Donatas and project manager Jonas, three of our BIM application engineers (below), who specialize in architectural and structural engineering, will be present at our booth. They'd be more than happy to chat with you and give you an up-close and in-depth look at our BIM solutions or tools for Revit.
While you're welcome to drop by our booth at any time, we can't guarantee that someone will be able to give you personal, undivided attention on the spur of the moment. For those who are interested in our software and want be sure of having an opportunity to speak one-to-one with our CEO or engineers, we recommend making an appointment to meet at a certain time at our booth.
Alternatively, Jonas can pencil you in over the phone: 00370 694 62335
In this webinar we'll show how to use our Smart Assemblies BIM solution – and particularly its revamped Smart Dimensions feature – to further automate your shop drawings in Revit. Whatever your line of work (wood/metal framing, precast, etc.), if you have to make shop drawings, this webinar is for you. We invite you to join!
What you'll see in this webinar:
dimensioning rules in Smart Dimensions;
Available settings in Smart Dimensions and what they mean;
difference between making dimensions using Smart Dimensions vs. the default settings of Smart Assemblies;
Examples of dimensioning in shop drawings used in various countries around the world.
Bobby Stiles, the founder of Florida-based Preconstruction with Stiles LLC, says his BIM modeling and metal stud consulting business got a big boost from AGACAD’s light gauge steel framing solutions for Revit®.
Preconstruction with Stiles LLC is a U.S. provider of BIM
and as-built data services with special expertise in metal framing. The company
works on public infrastructure (hospitals, airports, schools) and large
commercial projects (retail, hotels, residential).
AGACAD’s framing and panelling solutions for Revit® have boosted the speed and quality of this Dutch design firm’s design and documentation work, also for BIM to fabrication, allowing it to offer more competitive project pricing.
A-BET BV is a design and BIM consulting firm based in the South Holland province of the Netherlands that specializes in metal framing.
Thanks to all who attended our recent webinar on Curtain Walls & Panels. Our engineer showed how to efficiently framing architectural curtain walls or curtain panels in Revit. He put together a condensed version of the webinar below.
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:
