BIM software for designing metal roof trusses and rafter systems
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.
Connectors, cuts, supports, tension braces and other details can be distributed based on predefined rules or connection types. They can then be modified or updated to suit the project design stage and the level of detail required. The layout and details of roof structural elements can be modified and updated whenever the project is changed.
Easy marking of trusses and rafters based on properties and location ensures accurate bills of materials and accurate assembly. And information for fabrication can be automatically generated with all desired views, schedules, and drawings for each structural element.
Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2017, 2018, 2019
Prefabricated Metal Frame Roof Panels
Automated Rafter Framing
|STEEL ROOF TRUSS WIZARD|
Metal Framing Truss+ gives Revit® users a single robust platform to generate light gauge steel truss systems for roofs of any shape, perform structural analysis, and auto-generate shop drawings. Functions are versatile, parameters easy to control, and changes occur in real time. It’s a potent BIM workflow booster: no more drafting – just decide and design.
Roof Panel Layout
|PREFABRICATED ROOF PANELING|
Enables easy roof panel planning and splitting into segments for prefabrication, which can then be used in the roof framing process.
for prefabricated panels
|ROOF PANEL FRAMING|
Roof+ automates metal framing roof work in Revit® projects. Robust features allow the user to efficiently frame metal roofs, complete with roof joists, battens, valley joists, roof boards, and more. Plus, the software automates shop drawings, including sorting, tagging, dimensioning, and scheduling all frames.
for rafter structures
|RAFTER ROOF FRAMING|
Automates metal framing work with rafter roofs in Revit® projects. Powerful, flexible, and easy to use. It helps you make optimal choices, move much faster, and avoid errors at every BIM stage – from design and documentation to fabrication and construction.
|PRECISION OPENINGS FOR MEP SERVICES AND BUILDING STRUCTURES|
Creates openings with fire safety components throughout a Revit® model where ducts, pipes, cable trays and conduits intersect with walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, beams and columns. Cut Opening creates openings with special holding details for structural beams.
|FLEXIBLE ELEMENT AND GRID RENUMBERING|
Renumber Revit® elements just the way you want, detect and renumber grids, determine swing direction and orientation (and add them as properties), recalculate shared coordinates, and much more.
