Would you like to begin and complete your precast project in Revit and at the same time do it efficiently? This webinar has been put together with you in mind!

It was not long ago that we released Precast Concrete, and we’ve been developing it ever since. In order to better fit all our clients’ needs and cover more areas of precast modeling and documentation, we’ve made some major updates as well as some tweaks here and there. Now it looks like we’re approaching the final form of this professional solution. With its updated functionality and other significant modifications, Precast Concrete can tackle a variety of situations and follow the whole project life cycle.

During this webinar, you‘ll see how our Precast Concrete solution solves common issues when it comes to modelling your precast concrete project. We’ll go through how to modify and update elements, cuts, and connections. One of the highlights we’ll be showing is how to create assembly views with automatic dimensions and shop drawings.

Please share this invitation with colleagues who could benefit from it.

Modelling and preparing drawings are time-consuming processes with tons of repetitive tasks. If you want to see how can you get rid of most of them – please join the webinar!

It is no secret, that two of the best, most popular solutions for structural engineers working in BIM environment are Tekla and Revit. Companies decide whether to use one or the other in the office depending on various factors. After a while, Revit users start wondering whether maybe they should have made a different decision. “Revit is a great platform,” they think, “but it’s not that great in all the cases we encounter on a daily basis.”

In this webinar, we want to show the precast concrete market that there is no need for any regrets. Just by adding a few tools, you can increase your productivity in the Revit environment and feel confident that you’ll remain competitive in the market.

The Precast Concrete Suite is a collection of add-ons that cover all the modelling, numbering, drawing, and management features that are missing in Revit.

I will go straight to the point – Revit is not enough for structural engineers. It has quite good tools to model forms of precast elements. And it’s ok for preliminary design. But when you have to go into details, you probably ask yourself every time – why did we choose Revit to be our main software for everyday work? While our friends, colleagues in other companies use Tekla and have no complains?

It should not be like this that’s why we developed add-ons for precast structures to improve work efficiency in Revit and be able to compete with other companies in the market. You don’t have to miss out on easier design work or regret that your models are Revit models, with Precast Concrete Suite you can solve most of the headaches in structures discipline and then you will begin enjoying working with Revit.

Discover the most important user based questions about MEP connections (Hangers and Supports). During this webinar we will introduce the casual workflow of Smart Hangers software that allows users to distribute hangers on MEP line based elements by predefined rules.

Furthermore, we‘ll demonstrate some new Revit® families that we have created for Smart Hangers.

We created Unistrut Trapeze Hanger and Support Families, which make multiple run hangers accessible in Smart Hangers. The new families enable easy Multi-Tier hanger distribution in Revit projects as well.

Intended Audience: MEP engineers, Structural engineers, BIM managers, BIM coordinators.

MEP engineers often need to insert plenty of support elements for ducts, pipes, cable trays, etc. It would be best to distribute hangers and supports along MEP elements automatically. And we have a solution for that!

Using Smart Hangers software, which is AGACAD’s application for Revit®, you do not need to manually distribute hanging or supporting elements for line based MEP objects like duct, pipe, cable tray, or conduits. It places duct hangers along the duct automatically.

It also has integrated split functionality of any MEP line based element: pipe, duct, cable tray, or conduit. Revit extension Smart Hangers splits MEP curves into segments by predefined lengths and attaches the distributed elements to any type of the constructions as well.

Easy to use and customizable application for placing hangers and joints in Revit has a lot of users who sometimes send us their questions about Smart Hangers usage. Therefore, I have decided to collect the most common ones and provide some answers in this blog post. Let’s start:

It seems that this year will be the first, when everything is going according to plan. Autodesk company is about to release Autodesk® Revit® 2017 on April 17th 2017, while AGACAD plans to release its newest TOOLS4BIM products’ versions... on April 17th as well!

We are still working on our products’ 2017 versions but they are nearly ready. 2017 version testing is in full swing and is nearly completed. Most of AGACAD TOOLS4BIM products are already tested and work perfectly in Revit 2017 version environment. Our technical team needs to check just a few more BIM solutions, and if bugs don’t rush us over, the newest versions’ preparations will be complete. And voila! – You can use the new Revit version together with productivity-enhancing applications designed for Revit.

In this post, I would like to talk about modeling of concrete structures in Autodesk® Revit®. After I switched from AutoCAD to Revit, I never wanted to get back to 2D drawings and previous workflow. Anyway, I always seek perfection and there is a long way ahead for Revit to fit all engineer’s needs. Our company has understood this a long time ago and we started developing tools for Revit users’ efficiency: simple apps and powerful BIM solutions.

I will mention a few of our tools here for your consideration and usage in structural modeling process.

If you want to watch the recorded version of the webinar please contact us by email events@aga-cad.com and we'll send you a record link.

On the 1st of October, we’ll give you some valuable information about precast concrete design that is topical for architects, engineers, and others on the construction team.

Structural precast concrete elements must comply with architectural ideas of modern buildings, and their technological capabilities give designers more versatility to face a wide variety of design challenges. But engineering process, like modeling of precast elements, is often confusing and time-consuming, therefore efficiency in design (as well as production, delivery, erection, etc.) is very relevant to architects, structural engineers and others in building industry.

Please join us in a free 60 min. webinar on the best ways to model and prepare documentation of precast/prestressed concrete elements with the help of Revit® extensions.
