The other week we were in Växjö, Sweden exhibiting at Forum Wood Framing Nordic with our partner AEC. While there, we met a lot of wood building designers and manufacturers who liked our software, especially because of the flexibility it offers in Revit. We also had the pleasure of meeting some of our existing clients, which is always a highlight for us these kinds of events!

We showed our latest in wood framing for conference attendees who were interested in our timber software. The forum provided the perfect opportunity to demonstrate our newest solution — Wood Framing CLT — to the Scandinavian market.

In this webinar we'll show how to use our Smart Assemblies BIM solution – and particularly its revamped Smart Dimensions feature – to further automate your shop drawings in Revit. Whatever your line of work (wood/metal framing, precast, etc.), if you have to make shop drawings, this webinar is for you. We invite you to join!

What you'll see in this webinar:

  • Automatic dimensioning rules in Smart Dimensions;
  • Available settings in Smart Dimensions and what they mean;
  • The difference between making dimensions using Smart Dimensions vs. the default settings of Smart Assemblies;
  • Examples of dimensioning in shop drawings used in various countries around the world.

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.
