Thanks to all who participated in our webinar last week focusing on framing metal (light-gauge steel) walls in Revit®. Our structural engineer Valensas showed the capabilities of the Metal Framing Walls BIM Solution, including some new features for doing bracing and using headers with diagonal members.

The webinar was recorded, so if you didn’t get to attend or would just like to watch it again, simply let us know at events@aga-cad.com and we’ll send that to you ASAP!

In the meantime, here’s a short preview of what the webinar covered:

It's time for our next webinar! This time around it's about framing metal walls or light-gauge steel walls (or whatever you call it in your area) in Revit®. New features in the latest release will be demonstrated, including improvements for bracing and headers with diagonal members.


In the span of 40 minutes, our structural engineer Valensas will show how to use our Metal Framing Wall software to do the following:

We’d like to thank all those who attended our recent webinar about framing Prefabricated Roof Panels in Revit®. Our architectural engineer Eve demonstrated the workflow of splitting a roof into panels and then framing them, using our software for Wood / Metal Framing Prefab Roof Panels BIM Solution.

If you missed the webinar or would like to view it again, the full recording is available. Just write us at events@aga-cad.com, and we’ll be glad to get that right to you!

Meanwhile, here's a brief look at what the webinar covered.

Ideal for: structural engineers, prefabricated roof designers and manufacturers. The first add-on of its kind for Revit®!


AGACAD's unique software for Prefabricated Roof Panels is up for demonstration! Available for both wood and metal framing applications, this powerful tool seamlessly automates the roof paneling and framing process: begin with Roof Panel Layout to split a roof into panels, and then frame the panels with Roof Panel Frame (Wood version, Metal version). We invite all existing and potential Wood and Metal Framing users to attend this webinar.

Thanks to all who participated in our webinar on using ‘Template Project’ for framing project documentation in Revit®!

Here's an AGACAD Sneakpeek:

During the webinar, our architectural engineer showed how to:

  • Frame walls including main framing, nailers and sidings
  • Easily generate Sheathing layouts by predefined configurations
  • Create a Template Project from scratch or from an existing project
  • Set up a Template Project in your Current Project
  • Create Shop Drawings with automatically generated sheets

In August we were in Toronto for BILT North America. Now, we’re getting ready to head to BILT Europe, which will be held October 5-7 in Aarhus, Denmark. We hope many of you will be able to come, and if you are, please come visit us at booth 20!

Along with all of our BIM Solutions software, our engineers Jokubas and Valensas and CEO Donatas are excited to show something else as well: where we see BIM heading. Imagine you're walking through a building and when you look at something -- a door, window, vent, light fixture, anything in your model -- you see all and only the information you need.

Here at AGACAD, that's what we envision. A whole new realm of possibilities is opening up with AR (Augmented Reality) and BIM working together. We'll be showing a cloud-based solution for classification of elements called BIMAXON. The principal of BIMAXON is to collect all needed data into a common data environment (CDE) and then distribute only the necessary data to the relevant person(s) and devices at just the right time throughout a building's lifecycle. (You can read more about BIMAXON at our CEO Donatas Aksomitas' blog that he started earlier this year.)

BIMAXON is capable of reading and exporting data from Autodesk® Revit®, Autodesk® NavisWorks®, and in the near future we plan to launch it on other BIM-based software. BIMAXON data is collected in cloud-based servers, which can be accessed by a device, like a phone, tablet, or headgear. The latter, however, brings AR (Augmented Reality) into the picture by using a device like Microsoft® HoloLens®, which can be used for Facility Management. We have already used our BIM workflow for existing buildings that do not have a BIM model by using 3D-reality-capturing technology in combination with CDE and AR: we scan the building, collect the data in the cloud, and then display it through HoloLens.

We’ll have a pair of HoloLens that you can try out for yourself by dropping by at our booth (#20) at BILT. See with your own eyes what’s up-and-coming!

See you in Aarhus! #BILTeur


What is BILT?

It’s basically a gathering of BIM experts from around the world to learn from each other. Although the conference has undergone a name-change – formerly known as the Revit Technology Conference (RTC) – it draws Revit professionals (like us!) and, at the same time, seeks to attract users of other technologies. The BILT Conference serves to reach out to a wider community of professionals who work at various stages along the whole spectrum of a building’s lifecycle. As a dual-purpose acronym, “BILT” stands for “Buildings Infrastructure Lifecycle, supported by Technology” and also “Building and bringing Industry Leadership Together.”

Do your wood or metal framing Revit® projects require documentation? The latest enhancement of our Framing solutions will significantly decrease your documentation time for all your projects at once.

AGACAD has enhanced its Wood and Metal Framing software for Revit® by adding new functionality to meet the current needs of industry-leading clients. From now on, you will save even more time on documentation, as you will not have to create new shop drawing sheet templates in every project over and over again. Interested? Read on!

Thank you.
