Cross Laminated Timber is gaining popularity and recognition: Modular construction, its design flexibility, thermal insulation properties, strength, versatility… those are just a brief example of the potential that CLT offers. The numerous uses of panels in walls, floors, and roofs certainly make CLT an excellent choice for the future.

In this Sneakpeek, see what's possible using AGACAD'S Wood Framing CLT software and sample families.

We invite you to join our upcoming webinar about modeling precast concrete in Revit. If you're interested in modeling rebar, don't miss out on this webinar! You'll see how to place rebar automatically using Revit reinforcement tools in tandem with Dynamo scripts that we've developed. Creating strands for walls is fast and easy as well as placing rebar around openings.

This webinar is ideal for structural engineers, designers & drafters, BIM modelers & detailers, CAD engineers & technicians. It's also ideal for companies in building design & engineering, consultancy, and manufacturing.

Our team has arrived in Louisville, the Gateway to the South, for The Precast Show. Time to get the booth all set up for the grand opening of the Show at 2 p.m. on Thursday.

If you're involved in the design and fabrication of precast concrete and you'll be at the Show, Valensas and Jan (see their mugshots below) can show how to streamline your process. They especially hope to re-connect with existing users to talk about your further needs and expectations. They look forward to meeting you at right by the bookstore!

At the end of February, AGACAD will be heading to Louisville, KY to exhibit at The Precast Show – the largest trade show in North America exclusively dedicated to precast.

When: February 28 – March 2, 2019
Where: Kentucky International Convention Center, booth #789

Last year in Denver was our first time exhibiting at TPS, so we’re fired up about returning to this outstanding event to showcase our software to the US precast industry, especially since becoming an Autodesk AEC Industry Partner – specifically for precast – in October 2018.

Manning our booth will be Valensas and Jan, our BIM application engineer and project manager, who can share how our Precast Concrete BIM Solution for Revit is driving the precast industry forward. We're especially hoping to meet our existing users face-to-face to talk about your further needs and expectations.

Thanks to all who attended our webinar about the latest updates to the Truss Builder that's part of our Wood/Metal Framing Roof BIM Solutions. The webinar showed how to use our Truss extension to take a roof modeled in Revit and generate complex wood or metal truss systems automatically. If you missed out, never fear, the recording is here. Head on over to our AGACAD webinar playlist on YouTube. Here's a short sneakpeek at what went down:

Join in this webinar to see the workflow that takes a roof modeled in Revit and generates complex wood or metal truss systems automatically using AGACAD's enhanced Truss+ extension that's part of our Wood/Metal Framing Roof BIM Solution.

Now Truss+ is even more user-friendly and flexible, thanks to the extended possibilities for creating and freely modifying various roof truss layouts and individual truss structures. Moreover, truss systems can be created for roofs that have different hip ends and side pitches, and you‘ll have more truss overhang framing variations to choose from.
