Welcome everyone to the second webinar we are hosting in our Precast Concrete series. Maybe some of you attended the first webinar in January in which we gave an overview of how our software can be applied to precast concrete projects.

This webinar is dedicated to precast wall panels. Modeling these elements is a time consuming job, and we need to find ways to minimize excess effort as much as we can. Walls have different forms and connections, different drawing requirements from manufacturers, so it‘s not easy to meet all these, complete them on time, and be in front of competitors to get the job.

This webinar is intended for modellers, MEP modellers, MEP engineers, Structural engineers, architects, and fire protection engineers.

Cut Opening creates openings with fire safety components for MEP services in walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, beams, and columns throughout an architectural or structural Revit® model in real-time for high-speed and precise design and drawings, accurate bill of materials, and builders work drawings.

During the webinar we will focus on three different tasks that Revit + Cut Opening software could accomplish:

  • No-Clash model preparation:

o Configuration preparation for openings (Opening size, Joining distances, Partial interference)
o Run interference check
o Insert openings, combining configuration data and interference check report from Revit

  • Builders Work drawings

o Shared parameters and their usage
o Tags and schedules
o Visual representation of holes in structures

  • Special features for Fire protection engineers

o Distribution of Fire Dampers
o Distribution of Fire Collars
o Distribution of Fire Sleeves
o Distribution of Fire Boards
o …and other details

In the previous webinar on Precast Concrete, we did a general overview of our Precast tools, quickly running through different examples of precast elements. As promised, we will host 3 additional webinars about modeling precast structures and generating documentation for them. So now it‘s time to divide the information into smaller pieces and concentrate on particular types of elements. First up – slabs!

In this webinar, we’ll show how to prepare layouts of various slabs and add additional details and cuts automatically. After modelling, we’ll sort and schedule them and prepare automatic shop drawings with predefined dimensioning and sheet layout settings. Everything you need to know for modelling precast floors in Revit!

Topics to be covered in this 30-minute webinar:

It’s now possible to model your ventilated facade project completely in Revit, from start to finish. And not only that, but to do it efficiently. The purpose of this presentation is to show you how!

AGACAD has created new software for effectively designing of ventilated facades.

VENTILATED FACADES makes it quick and easy to design high-quality ventilated facades in Revit® with automated real-time updates for project changes. That ensures you’ll get high-quality framing models, including hangers, fixings, brackets, etc. You’ll get accurate bills of materials, shop and fabrication drawings, and accurate on-site assembly thanks to BIM-to-Field features.

You‘ll see in this webinar how our new solution successfully models ventilated facades. We’ll go through the process of creating ventilated wall layers, modifying and updating frames, and adding fixings, hangers, and fasteners. Come and see how you can model ventilated facades in no time!

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!

This webinar is intended for ventilation system designers, engineers, and ventilation equipment manufacturers. It is particularly relevant to “Revit Families” skeptics.

The AGACAD team, in collaboration with SALDA (a European maker of ventilation equipment), has developed unique technology that transfers geometry and data from the AHU selection tool to Revit. This new tool enables Revit users to select any type of AHU and transfer all needed data to Revit. It also creates a Revit family from scratch, providing the user with a Revit element at LOD300. To top it off, the tool adapts to the ventilation systems’ airflows, pressure drops, and other engineering parameters of any building.

Please join our FREE WEBINAR on Thursday, December 15, 2016.

After the webinar, all participants will receive the “Salda VentMasterV5 Revit” add-on.

Come have a look at the new technology, which automatically creates BIM AHU elements with precise geometry and engineering information in real time.

Ideal for: Experienced BIM Managers, Architects, Structural Engineers, MEP Engineers, Contractors, Owners, Operators, New Revit® users.

With this webinar, we are ending the BIM Tree Chimpanzee series, which has been dedicated to BIM Tree Manager - an amazing solution for Revit® that makes it incredibly simple to find and isolate elements in current or linked models, verify geometry and information at any LOD, and quickly fill in gaps or fix mistakes.

WHY ATTEND? Nowadays BIM models contain a huge amount of information, all of which should somehow be collected, filled, checked, etc. Many times the information in a model is inadequate, and you need to add extra information to your model, such as coordinates, re-calculated elevations, etc. We have the solution for this: BIM Tree Manager is a tool that helps you manage hundreds of grouped or sorted elements. With this powerful solution, you can replace one family with another of same size, number elements in different ways, and instantly insert hundreds of building objects by predefined rules into a project.

Please join our 3-part FREE WEBINAR on Thursday, December 8, 2016.

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
How to Manage BIM Objects Information in a Revit ARCHITECTURAL Model How to Manage BIM Objects Information in a Revit STRUCTURAL Model How to Manage BIM Objects Information in a Revit MEP Model



Spend your valuable time on creativity – not on monotonous technical work – by managing huge amounts of elements with ease. Write, change, and update data in projects with significant time savings. Increase productivity, enhance workflow and BIM model quality by managing hundreds of grouped or sorted elements at once. Take advantage of faster parameter addition and transition, faster element replacement and distribution, faster filtration, faster sorting, and faster calculations.
