Our solution Smart Assemblies already saves a lot of time for its users. Automatic assembly, view, and schedule creation, dimension addition and placement of everything on sheets – these tasks are greatly optimized by Smart Assemblies.

Now we’ve developed assemblies’ update and managing technology. We have added possibility to add or delete details/cuts to all assemblies of the same type at once, as well as additional control options to the update process of assemblies and views.

Dynamic Update technology prevents users from making mistakes in element assemblies, it will check whether all details are included in an assembly and give an option to remove or add these details to the assemblies automatically. New version also covers search and select options to easily find and isolate Primary and Secondary Assemblies.

While working on a project as a team, there are often cases when it becomes difficult to control the BIM processes because the designing is carried out using different software or in different planes of the same software. Communication problems are especially noticeable when you need to cut holes in architectural elements of Revit® project.

A variety of software in BIM team leads to differences in openings upon upload. Therefore, we want to show you several different ways of opening insertion that are adapted to various BIM teams’ working methods.

Revit users spend a lot of time adding and tagging openings manually, but using our BIM solution, Cut Opening, they can cut holes for MEP elements in structural elements automatically. Cut Opening is adapted to various workflows of BIM teams. It doesn’t matter what way you choose to make your project - using only Revit or Revit and oter software - with Cut Opening you can add holes easily and quickly in any case. Take part in our latest webinar and see for yourself that it is true.

Holes in Structures for MEP Elements - 3 BIM Workflows

The framing of multilayered timber walls, their sheathings, and connections can be challenging, even for designers experienced with framed building projects. Our team is always looking for methods how to improve wall framing design, drafting, and detailing techniques to reduce the amount of headaches of building designers and timber manufactures. We continue refinement of our applications for Autodesk® Revit® perpetually, and this time we invite you to our free webinar to see how our BIM solution Wood Framing Wall+ can help Revit users increase their framed building design efficiency.

This 45-minute presentation will provide a thorough demonstration of complex multi-layered wall framing. We kindly welcome all Revit® Architecture and Revit® Structure users to our FREE WEBINAR on quick and professional modeling and making of shop drawings of light timber-framed walls.

Autodesk® Revit® is excellent BIM software that generates great advancements in the construction drawing process. But in case of instant insertion of hundreds of details or cuts into Revit model, this software requires manual work and long working hours.

Manual insertion of elements one by one doesn’t seem like a very intelligent workflow therefore many Revit users seek for more innovative ways to add the details and refinements they need in their models. Various details are quite important in our projects, especially in precast elements or structural models. That’s why many Structural Engineers, Architects, and Contractors choose additional tools for Revit that allow them to quickly distribute details or even specific cuts in their Revit models.

Our BIM solution Smart Details is an application for Revit that received great attention from the building engineering community. The last update of this solution extended capabilities of Smart Details; moreover this BIM solution also became a wonderful helper designing detailed models in Revit. In the upcoming webinar, we will demonstrate how much detailing in Revit is easier with Smart Details than using only Revit.

Years continuously cycle and change and so building heating and cooling themes remain relevant. In addition, the currently prevailing concept of net zero energy buildings encourage to achieve minimal energy balance on annual energy level saving and energy efficiency measures. That’s why we think that it’s a good time for our webinar about efficient heating and cooling system design.

It has been a long time since we last spoke about hydronic system design in Autodesk® Revit®. During this time we invented new workflows for heating and even cooling design. We kindly welcome all Revit® MEP users to our FREE WEBINAR. During this web session, AGACAD BIM Application Engineer Jokubas Vaisvila will show two different workflows: one for heating systems and the other for cooling using two different AGACAD solutions.

As always, we continue developing and improving our applications for Autodesk® Revit® seeking to help increase Revit users’ design and construction work efficiency. In the middle of January we’ll present our latest activity results – updates of our BIM solution Metal Framing Wall+. In this webinar you’ll see new extra feature of this software that can help framed building designers to boost framing possibilities.

We kindly welcome all Revit® Architecture and Revit® Structure users to our FREE WEBINAR on quick and professional modeling and making of shop drawings of metal wall framing. In this free 45-minute webinar, AGACAD Lead BIM Application Engineer Renata Jociene will review new functionality of Metal Framing Wall+ that makes advanced metal building framing.

Do you struggle with detailed projects created in Autodesk® Revit®? Do you have issues with face based element placement to exact place? Or maybe you create precast walls using generic category families with lots of parameters and you feel like it’s not very efficient?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, we strongly recommend you to join our interactive webinar and see how this can be done differently. You will be able to ask our BIM expert questions at the end of the webinar.
