It’s time to demonstrate the new workflow and technology created especially for cross-laminated timber (CLT). In this webinar about CLT, you’ll see how to create CLT panels for walls, floors, and roofs by using AGACAD’s Wood Framing software and sample families, distribute details, and even design ventilated facades!

Thanks to all who attended our webinar on framing heavy timber and post-n-beam structures in Revit. 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 webinar playlist on YouTube. While there, please subscribe to our channel.


What did this webinar cover?

  • Setting up configurations and standards for creating wall, floor, and roof frames using heavy timbers.
  • Auto-generating truss framing and defining detailed, multi-layer rafters in a snap using fully customizable rules and templates.
  • Distributing & managing details for creating connections with cuts common for oak frames using Smart Details.
  • Preparing shop drawings and cut lists with all required views and where elements are dimensioned, sorted, tagged, scheduled, and mass is calculated.
  • Exporting elements and details to a CNC machine or CAD/CAM production line.

What's the latest building style you can frame with AGACAD‘s Framing software for Revit? Heavy Timber and Post-&-Beam structures! The new Wood Framing Oak software is powerful and flexible, automating the design process for even the most complex and unique structures – it’s just a matter of figuring out a workflow and required families.

We've already covered multi-layered timber frames and frames with SIP panels for walls, floors and roofs, high-quality ventilated facades, and architectural curtain walls with highly detailed elements. So now it's time to move on to framing with massive timbers. We invite you to join our webinar!

You’ll see the technology for creating heavy-timber-framed walls, floors and roofs using our Wood Framing Oak software and sample families. You’ll also see how to distribute and manage details for creating connections with cuts common for oak frames using Smart Details and, finally, how to prepare shop drawings, cut lists, and even export wood elements and details to any CNC machine and CAD/CAM production line, such as Hundegger, Weinmann, etc.

Thanks to all who attended our webinar on generating shop drawings and inserting connection details for precast projects in Revit. 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.



What did this webinar cover?

  • Tweaking the position, depth, and rotation of selected views.
  • Placing legend views.
  • Updates for dimensioning hosted details.
  • Generating shop tickets with auto-dimensions.
  • Handling connection hardware families and their configurations.

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.

Since MEP Hangers has been entirely revamped, we're hosting a webinar to show how it improves productivity in Revit, from laying out supports and hangers in your Revit project to exporting to a Total Station.

From here...
..to there!

Our BIM application engineer will walk through a building model and show tons of new features at your disposal. Definitely worth attending!

In this webinar, we'll show the latest enhancements made to the Rafter framing module that is now part of our Wood & Metal Roof framing software. Now creating rafters automatically is much smoother and more intuitive, just as it has always been for walls, floors, and prefabricated roofs. The powerful Rafter tool seamlessly automates the roof splitting and framing process: split a roof by faces and then frame it with Roof + (Wood version, Metal version).

Join our webinar and see how to:

  • Automatically split roofs by faces according to any architectural roof shape;
  • Define detailed, multi-layer timber/steel rafters for roof framing in a snap using fully customizable rules and templates;
  • Automate shop drawings, including sorting, tagging, dimensioning and scheduling of all frames and their elements.

Thank you.
