This free, 30-minute webinar will be about designing parametric unitized curtain wall systems in Revit® from a practical standpoint. What you'll see is the workflow for using our Curtain Walls & Panels BIM software to efficiently design highly-detailed unitized elements. See how to insert hundreds of details (such as mullions, transoms, window glass holders and drainages, pressure plates, cover plates, insulators, infills, connection brackets, gaskets, bolts, etc.) throughout a Revit model and generate fabrication information (shop drawings and cut lists) with the views, schedules, and drawings you need.

AEC industry professionals involved in the design or prefabrication of facades: engineers, designers, BIM coordinators, and managers at companies that design or manufacture facades for commercial, residential, or industrial (mainly commercial) buildings – we invite you to sign up below for this informative webinar about how to bring your curtain wall design process to the next level of automation. The webinar will be held twice on April 16th, so please register for the session that's more convenient for you.

In this free, 30-minute webinar, we'll give an expert-level introduction to framing prefabricated timber and steel roof and floor truss systems of any shape or complexity, perform structural analysis, and generate custom shop drawings using the Truss framing tool that's part of our Wood/Metal Framing Roof BIM Solutions for Revit.

The result you'll see is trusses generated for both a Revit roof of simple geometry and also for a roof of a more complex shape. And even though the Truss Builder is part of our Roof Framing software, it can also be used to frame truss floors, which we'll show as well. To finish off the tutorial, we'll sort all trusses and structural members and produce shop drawings.

The webinar will be held twice on April 15th, so please register for the session that's more convenient for you. Architects, engineers, BIM managers, drafters, builders, manufacturers – all AEC industry professionals involved in the design or prefabrication of timber or steel trusses: we invite you to join us for this free webinar. Sign up below to discover how to bring your truss design process to the next level of automation and reduce manual tasks to a minimum!

In this free 30-minute webinar we'll give an expert-level tutorial of how to use our Precast Concrete design software for Revit, showing how it streamlines the modeling, detailing, and documentation process for structural engineers, drafters, and BIM modelers. What will you get out of this webinar? We'll get into specifics like splitting Revit walls into precast wall panels and then automatically inserting connections, grout tubes, plates, and lifting anchors on all of them based on predefined configurations. As you may know from experience, modeling reinforcement for precast walls and beams takes hours to do manually, so instead we'll generate rebar automatically. And the long, tedious process of making shop drawings with proper dimensions and views will be done in a jiffy during this webinar using our Precast Concrete software tool.

The webinar will be held twice on April 9th, so please register for the session that's more convenient for you. We especially invite out-of-box Revit users and those thinking of switching from AutoCAD 2D to the BIM platform to join in!

In this free 30-minute webinar we'll give an expert-level tutorial of our Wood/Metal Framing Wall BIM Solutions for Revit. The result you'll see is a multi-layer timber/steel project with custom, multi-element framing member layouts and complex L,T, End connections; distributed connectors, fasteners, cuts, and supports; sheathing layouts; and automatically generated shop drawings with gravity points, tags, and dimensions inserted just the way you want and material schedules as well.

The webinar will be held twice on April 8th, so please register for the session that's more convenient for you. Architects, engineers, designers, drafters, BIM managers – we invite you to sign up below!

In this free 30-minute webinar we'll give an expert-level tutorial on how to create penetration holes for ducts, pipes, conduit, cable trays, and beams and how to control their parameters in a Revit® project using our Cut Opening BIM Solution. The result you'll see is a structural project with openings in the walls and floors for various MEP elements from a linked file and with user pre-defined offsets. All openings will be tagged to provide information about their size, shape, elevation, and dependence on the MEP system.

The webinar will be held twice on April 7th, so please register for the session that's more convenient for you. It's especially for MEP engineers & coordinators, structural engineers, architects, and BIM coordinators. Join us!

Want to efficiently model reinforcement for beams in Revit? Sign up for our free webinar showing a new tool that does just that. Our soon-to-be-released Beam Reinforcement app will allow you to place main reinforcement and stirrups via user-defined layout rules.

This free, 1-hour webinar is especially suited for structural engineers, modelers, and really anyone who wants to place reinforcement in Revit more efficiently. Join in and get a pre-release look at AGACAD's newest Revit add-in.

The Beam Reinforcement app can be applied to rectangular, L, and IT (inverted T) beams. Works best for precast but also for cast-in-place concrete.

We invite you to join in our webinar showing the latest updates made to our Wood Framing and Metal Framing software for Revit. Additionally, we'll take a tour through the new user interfaces that have been made for our wall, floor, and roof framing solutions.

Among the updates we'll show are framing reports & suggestions, wall validation, and the possibility of having customized studs or joists composed of multiple elements. More on those and other enhancements below the registration table.

The 30-min presentation + Q&A will be hosted twice on February 27th, so please register for the session that's more convenient for you.

Whether you're a seasoned user of our Wood Framing or Metal Framing software and want to see what's new or maybe you're just thinking about transitioning your framing process from 2D to BIM, we hope you'll join in this webinar.
