MEP system design in a project is only one part of work. Another part is how MEP elements are connected to structural elements. It is a real headache to engineers as this is a long-lasting manual process. And we know a solution that can help every HVAC engineer, plumber, fire protection engineer, electrician and constructor to make their design more efficient, as well as convenient!

All Revit® users are welcome to join Smart Hangers live demonstration and find out how they can use this powerful solution for hanger and support distribution on MEP elements in your own Revit® projects.

On the 1st of October, we’ll give you some valuable information about precast concrete design that is topical for architects, engineers, and others on the construction team.

Structural precast concrete elements must comply with architectural ideas of modern buildings, and their technological capabilities give designers more versatility to face a wide variety of design challenges. But engineering process, like modeling of precast elements, is often confusing and time-consuming, therefore efficiency in design (as well as production, delivery, erection, etc.) is very relevant to architects, structural engineers and others in building industry.

Please join us in a free 60 min. webinar on the best ways to model and prepare documentation of precast/prestressed concrete elements with the help of Revit® extensions.

Date: 1 Oct 2015

Our company often gets requests to create some additional functionality for our tools and BIM solutions for Revit software. We are always trying to consider our clients’ requests and suggestions. That’s why we have improved our BIM solution Cut Opening. Let us introduce the new features of this product.

You’re welcome to watch over a new-look functionality of BIM solution Cut Opening in our upcoming free webinar on September 17th, 2015.

What’s New for Revit® Users in Cut Opening Process

Join us for a 30 minute webinar to learn more on how you can work easier with an updated Cut Opening version. Join the webinar and see live how to:

  • automatically create different sizes of the openings for each different duct dependent on MEP line based element characteristics: element size, insulation thickness, auto join configuration, top and bottom offset, etc.;
  • adapt your own standards of opening size requirements to Revit project, or use basic configurations if you don’t need such parameterized openings;
  • define Cut Offsets, Additional Top or Bottom Offsets of each MEP line based element;
  • explore more possibilities of the updated Cut Opening.

Our team periodically holds webinars of our product presentations for designers all over the world and for specific markets as well. This time we want to introduce you a new upcoming webinar for the Dutch market.

AGACAD together with its partner the company Itannex (which is an exclusive reseller of AGACAD products in the Netherlands) are organizing a webinar on tools that help Architects and MEP Engineers to simplify their everyday workflow working with Autodesk® Revit®.

It’s no secret that much MEP work today misses out on the benefits of BIM. For example, BIM teams use Autodesk® Revit® to build 3D architecture and structural models. But when they get fire protection system projects in 2D or other ill-suited formats from engineers not on the team, they struggle to use those with their Revit models. Wasting time, money and nerves…

We would like to show you a better way how to involve MEP engineers in BIM projects. Join us for a 30 minutes presentation and watch live how to:

It’s no secret that much MEP work today misses out on the benefits of BIM. A crucial case in point is the design of sprinklers and fire protection systems. What happens?

Well, BIM teams use Autodesk Revit to build 3D architecture and structural models. Good. But then they get sprinkler projects in 2D or other ill-suited formats from engineers not on the team, or from costly subcontractors. And struggle to use those with their Revit models. Wasting time, money and nerves…

Isn’t there a better way? There is indeed, as we at AGACAD have discovered in our ongoing consulting and software development work with top BIM professionals around the world. It’s now easy to involve sprinkler engineers in BIM projects. For faster better results. Lower costs. And new business opportunities.

What Every MEP Engineer and BIM Professional Should Know
about Fire Sprinkler System Design

June 02, 2015 by Inga Ibenienė

Numbering elements, importing external data, making legend, adding dimensions, making & managing sheets and other element modeling and documentation tasks are main daily work headaches for each Autodesk® Revit® user. Do you know how to boost Revit model performance and simplify project documentation?

On the second week of June we are hosting webinars on all our inexpensive but very effective Revit apps’ overview for Architects, HVAC Engineers and Structural Engineers.

We kindly welcome you to join the corresponding session and see what productivity tools for Revit every Architect / Structural Engineer / MEP Engineer needs to have for performance of daily tasks. We’ll provide a short overview of productivity tools for Revit for each building designer’s workstation.

In these webinars for building designers you’ll see a short overview on our simple but highly efficient tools that increase design productivity when modeling buildings and preparing documentation. Below you can find a description of each webinar and registration links.

Do you know how to save time on framing Autodesk® Revit® model? How to frame multilayer wall panels using custom main frames, vertical or horizontal nailers, vertical, horizontal or mixed sidings? How to easily control complex multilayer connections between walls?

There are more questions important to timber frame building designers, architects and structural engineers: How to create complex truss system according to my roof shape? How to frame wood floor system that includes wood framing, subfloor panels, and floor finish materials such as hardwood? How to easily make shop drawings or export data to CNC machine? And finally: how to build a log house using BIM model in the right way?

We would like to show you how to change the way you work, so you have more time on making decisions. Look how an ideal BIM workflow happens using AGACAD Wood Framing Suite: quickly create your model in Revit, export it to Autodesk® Robot, analyze it and make required changes, then export it back to Revit where you can create shop drawings etc.

All this easy transition from 3D model to BIM process and BIM data delivery to all (designers, manufacturers, builders) will be shown in our Free Webinar:
