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.

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.

It is no secret, that two of the best, most popular solutions for structural engineers working in BIM environment are Tekla and Revit. Companies decide whether to use one or the other in the office depending on various factors. After a while, Revit users start wondering whether maybe they should have made a different decision. “Revit is a great platform,” they think, “but it’s not that great in all the cases we encounter on a daily basis.”

In this webinar, we want to show the precast concrete market that there is no need for any regrets. Just by adding a few tools, you can increase your productivity in the Revit environment and feel confident that you’ll remain competitive in the market.

The Precast Concrete Suite is a collection of add-ons that cover all the modelling, numbering, drawing, and management features that are missing in Revit.

A lot of Revit users often require specific L, T or Free End joins, which they can’t make by themselves, therefore they seek help by asking us to create specific joins that suit their needs. The most popular joins are already available in Wood and Metal Framing Wall+, but the fact they are the most popular doesn’t always mean they are the best ones for every case. Hence a need for unique joins arises, usually by structural engineers who intend to minimize heating losses or economize material consumption.

From now on, designers can create virtually any kind of joins, the only limitation is their imagination! Finally, designers can create own joins, which are more efficient in terms of both economy and sustainability.

AGACAD company has created a new Revit framing technology that allows users to create specific L, T or Free End joins, save them and use in any project!

Furthermore, with new Wood and Metal Framing Wall+ versions Revit users will be able to generate more detailed shop drawings and have possibility to create multiple sheets for one wall panel.

On this occasion, we were hosting a 45-min WEBINAR, which is relevant to both wood- and metal structure designers since all new features are same for both wood- and metal-framed structures.

In the process, you’ll see what Wood & Metal Framing Wall+ solutions are all about.

Thank you.
