The definitive solution for metal framing with Revit®

Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2018, 2019, 2020

Top Revit users call AGACAD’s Metal Framing Suite the most powerful and flexible BIM software on the market for constructions with single or multi-layer metal-frame walls, floors and roofs. That includes prefabricated panels, rafters and trusses, and robust solutions for detailed curtain wall or ventilated facade designs.

Advanced automation and built-in best practices help BIM professionals make optimal choices, move much faster, and avoid errors at every stage – from design and documentation to fabrication and construction.

It’s easy to quickly batch-add, modify or mark the right elements or parameters, distribute details, flexibly manage openings and connections, and find clashes. Frames dynamically update and adapt, ensuring that shop drawings and cut lists are always accurate.

DESIGN

MF Suite is ideal for modelling residential facilities and commercial multistory buildings accurately and efficiently. The Multi-Framing feature for copying and updating framing elements and documentation for identical walls, floors and roofs radically reduces the time needed to model large-scale projects. Analytical lines of individual panel frames are inter-connected and aligned in the same plane and can be exported to structural analysis software for further processing to create a full analytical model.

INTEGRATE

Coordination of BIM teams is greatly enhanced by integrating MF Suite with the Cut Opening BIM Solution, which identifies structural and engineering clashes throughout a Revit® model and creates openings and inserts fire safety components for all MEP services and building structures at the relevant intersections.

FABRICATE

Frames created with MF Suite may be exported for production to Howick, Metrol or various other CNC machines or CAD/CAM production lines. Optional CNC export is a major plus for workflow integration, as it eliminates duplicate work and reduces the margin of error.

Metal Framing Wall makes metal framing of walls fast and easy with real-time full project updates in Revit®. Plus it generates views with automatic dimensions for wall panels or segments as well as accurate bills of materials and shop drawings. So quality production and accurate assembly on site are ensured.

Metal Framing Floor makes metal framing of floors fast and easy with real-time full project updates in Revit®. Plus it generates views with automatic dimensions for floor panels or segments as well as accurate bills of materials and shop drawings. So quality production and accurate assembly on site are ensured.

Metal Framing Roof lets Revit® users instantly create metal truss and/or rafter systems of any shape or complexity, perform structural analysis, and generate custom shop drawings. It gives a powerful boost to your BIM workflow. Functions are versatile, parameters easy to control, and changes occur in real time. No more drafting – just design and decide, knowing you’ll get a high-quality model.


Curtain Walls & Panels enables quick and easy framing of architectural curtain walls or curtain panels in Revit® with real-time full project updates. That ensures you’ll get accurate bills of materials and builders work drawings, and accurate on-site assembly thanks to BIM-to-Field features.


Ventilated Facades software makes it quick and easy to design ventilated facades in Revit® with highly detailed elements and real-time full project updates. That ensures you’ll get accurate bills of materials and builders work drawings, and accurate on-site assembly thanks to BIM-to-Field features.
