In this webinar we'll concentrate on NEW FEATURES that have been added to Precast Concrete, specifically, generating shop drawings with Smart Assemblies and inserting connection hardware with Smart Details.

In the new version of the Smart Assemblies module, you'll see how to work with assemblies that were already created in Revit, how to tweak the position, depth, and rotation of selected views and place legend views. And most impressive – updates for dimensioning hosted details. As for the Smart Details tool, new features allow for better handling of configurations and connection families, so we’ll see those as well in this webinar.

Ideal for structural engineers, designers & drafters, BIM modelers & detailers, and CAD engineers & technicians. The features in this webinar will help our precast clients – firms in building design & engineering, consultancy, and manufacturing all over the world save copious amounts of time on shop drawings.

Thanks to all who attended our webinar on using structural framing elements in modeling precast structures. For those who missed out – or who liked the live webinar so much that they want to see it again! – head on over to our AGACAD Precast Concrete video playlist on YouTube. While there, please subscribe to our channel.

Topics that this webinar covered include:

  • Layout of hollow-core, double tee, solid slabs with automated cuts at openings, different slab shapes and slopes.
  • Dividing a single floor into separate floors automatically.
  • Filigran slabs – creating girders as structural framing elements with predefined rules.
  • Adding connections and cuts to different slabs.
  • Auto-numbering based on selected rules.
  • Generating shop tickets with auto-dimensions.

Our Precast Concrete solution for Revit was just recently updated with new features and performance improvements, including new ways to split walls, add details, and create shop drawings/tickets. But by far the most significant update is that the Metal Framing Floor+ feature has been added to Precast Concrete! We did this especially for clients wanting to create slabs by using Structural Framing families and even apply this to warped double tee slabs for precast parking garages.

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.

Q: We use a Trimble Total Station robot to lay out our hanger points in the field. Do your hangers have the point information that could be exported to our Trimble Total Station?

A: We have a tool called Sort Mark for calculating element coordinates in Revit according to Shared or Project coordinates.

I've recorded the video below where you can see a structure for which Trimble Total Station needs unique ID, X, Y, and Z coordinates.

So just take a look at this video. I use Sort Mark to do everything: to give elements unique marks and to calculate elevation and coordinates. I hope this helps!
