Thanks to the enhanced Wood/Metal Framing Wall+, Floor+ and Roof+ software, you’ll be able to add customizable, complex dimensions with completely new dimensioning technology – Smart Dimensions.

Although in the past you could also add dimensions to your shop drawings automatically, with Smart Dimensions, you can configure them from the simplest variation, where dimensions will be added only to a predefined layer, to more complex variations, where all layers will be dimensioned.

Recently, Team AGACAD has made quite a lot of significant changes in its Framing software for Revit to automate your work even more yet still provide flexibility. Who wouldn’t want to create and use different Detail configurations for the same Wall Type; calculate Gravity Points for Wall, Floor, or Roof panels; or customize complex dimensions with completely new Smart Dimensioning technology? You’ll be able to do all that and more!

Read on to find out the benefits of the enhanced versions of Wood/Metal Framing Wall+, Floor+, and Roof+.

If you’ve been hoping for a way to effortlessly and painlessly reposition studs, your ship has just come in. And even if you haven’t been on the lookout for it, you may want to climb aboard – this is the Queen Mary of stud placement.

It’s fast. It’s powerful. It makes life easier.

The newly released versions of Wood / Metal Framing Wall+, Floor+, and Roof+ contain a new option that allows you to position studs and joists not only in relation to each other but according to Revit gridlines. This special feature was developed at the request of our Norwegian users.

In the past, studs or joists had to be spaced following a predefined pattern, say, 24 inches apart, within each wall, starting from one end or the other or from both ends working toward the midpoint. An extra step was then required to make sure that studs were aligned.

But now, with new Align with Project Base Point feature, you can space and align all your studs at the same time! Project Base Point handles positioning in a more robust manner than before: instead of directly defining the spacing between studs, you just define the grid spacing, and the function takes care of the rest. Studs are positioned on the gridlines –and where necessary to fill in gaps or form intersections – so that they always match up across a corridor or room.

Notice how the studs are spaced according to the grid:

Want to see more detail in your shop drawings? Now you can, by creating Detail Views! This powerful function is included in the newly released versions of Wood / Metal Framing Wall+, Floor+, and Roof+. This special feature was developed at the request of our Norwegian users.

Back in the olden days, when you placed an assembly view on your shop drawing, you could see that assembly and all its parts in all their dimensioned glory. It was wonderful.

That was then.

This is now.

Say hello to Detail Views.

Nowadays, people want fast results on construction site, i.e. quickly manufactured prefabricated walls, floors and roof. That’s why after long and hard work, we are finally putting finishing touches on a new product designed for prefabricated roofs – Wood Framing Roof+, which was awaited by many.

On this occasion, we are hosting a 45-min WEBINAR, which will be held on Thursday, November 17.

http://www.aga-cad.com/products/bim-solutions/wood-framing-roofWood Framing Roof+ enables quick and easy creation of prefabricated wood framing for roofs in Revit® models. Powerful features simplify creation of roof joists, battens, valley joists, roof boards and more. The software automates shop drawings, including the sorting, tagging, dimensioning and scheduling of all frames.

Wood Framing Roof+ frames prefabricated roof panels. Roof Panel Layout automates panel layout planning for architectural roof. The software draws symbolic lines according to predefined rules which indicate the way future panels will look like. Then it creates actual Revit® roof panels.

Possible workflow:

Webinar has ended, but its recording is available upon request at events@aga-cad.com.


AGACAD created new software for prefabricated roof panelling and timber roof framing.

Ideal for: structural engineers, prefabricated roof designers and manufacturers.

Unique in the market: the first add-on for Revit of it’s kind!

BENEFITS:

  • Highly increased working speed;
  • Standardized and automated prefabricated roof framing and workshop drawing generation;
  • There is no counterpart in the market yet. So, be the first to try it out!

On this occasion, we are hosting a 45 min WEBINAR on the 17th of November.


Space is limited, reserve your spot today! Also please share this invitation with colleagues who could benefit.

There will be two sessions held:

10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CDT (USA Time) Check your local time and REGISTER HERE

10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CEST (EUROPE Time) Check your local time and REGISTER HERE

Specific topics that the webinar will address include:

  • Automatically create individual roof panels according to any architectural roof shape;
  • Simplify roof panel layout planning, roof splitting and more;
  • Create prefabricated wood framing for roofs in Revit® models;
  • Define detailed multilayer timber roof framing in a snap using fully customizable rules and templates;
  • Automate shop drawings, including sorting, tagging, dimensioning and scheduling of all frames;

Roof Panel Layout is a powerful solution for prefabricated roof panels in Revit®. It enables easy roof panel planning and splitting into segments for prefabrication which can then be used in the roof framing process.

After getting a roof from the architects, we can use Roof Panel Layout to generate the panel layout planning. The software uses predefined rules to draw symbolic lines indicating the future panels. Then it creates real Revit® roof panels. Later Wood Framing Roof+ or Metal Framing Roof+ users can use these panels to create prefabricated framing, including rafters, battens, valley joists, roof boards, and so on.

Thank you.
