BIM software for efficiently designing metal-frame walls

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.

Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2017, 2018, 2019

Connectors, cuts, supports, 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. Wall frames and the layout of frame elements and details can be modified and updated whenever the project is changed. Dynamic update functionality can make changes to all wall frames of the same type at once.

Wall frame elements in the project can be easily marked based on their properties and locations in the wall layer. And information for fabrication can be automatically generated with all desired views, schedules, and drawings for each wall panel.


POWERFUL FEATURES

Wall+




COMPLETE METAL WALL FRAME CREATION

Metal Framing Wall+ automates light gauge steel wall framing work in Revit®. 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 wall panel fabrication and construction.

  • Create detailed multi-layer metal wall framing for any Revit® project in a snap using predefined or custom rules and templates; solution supports C+C (incl. C+C Chamfered), C+U (incl. C+U Special) and U+U framing systems
  • Frame multi-story houses 10 times faster than using standard Revit interface. Read more>>
  • Easily configure supporting structure, openings, complex L or T connections, details, service hole positions, and more for straight or arched light-frame walls
  • Automate sheathing layouts
  • Frame architectural curtain walls with highly detailed elements (including mullions, transoms, window glass holders, pressure plates, cover plates, insulators etc.) efficiently
  • Frame curtain panels (including complex fills and internal frames) precisely
  • Freely revise your Revit model with simple selection of the elements and properties you want to modify
  • Find structural and engineering clashes; cut and frame openings according to predefined rules
  • Generate shop drawings and cut lists with one click; get real-time take-offs and views, auto-sorting and dimensioning, and optional export to any CNC machines (Howick, Metroll, Pinnacle, etc.)
  • Wall frames update and adapt according to every change
  • Perform structural analyses without leaving Revit or exporting your metal frames to external analysis software at any stage of design process

Smart Walls




WALL & JOIN MANAGEMENT

A powerful add-on for managing walls in Revit®, letting you rapidly disassemble layers into different wall types, fully control joins and gap distances, split walls into separate panels with predefined settings, insert gravity points, and manage information with an export-to-Excel feature.


  • Manage information of all walls in your project
  • Export filtered, grouped, or selected information (wall parameters) to Excel
  • Decompose wall layers into separate wall types according to user's predefined configuration
  • Fully control joins and gap distances between walls
  • Insert gravity points
  • Add additional information about real wall orientation, elevation, or coordinates
  • Split walls at exact locations by using grid lines, openings, or other walls
  • Split walls automatically by predefined panel size

Cut Opening



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.


  • Automatically creates openings where ducts, pipes, cable trays or conduits intersect walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, beams or columns
  • Automatically adds openings with predefined sizes in accordance with MEP line based element sizes, categories and system classifications
  • Automatically joins openings with predefined configurations
  • Automatically inserts Fire Dampers where ducts clash with walls, floors, ceilings or roofs with fire rating
  • Automatically inserts structural openings for separated architectural and structural models
  • Enhance BIM-team work and deliverables for integrated project delivery (IPD)

Sort Mark




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.


  • Detects grid geometry and renumbers them
  • Renumbers grids automatically after they have been changed in the project
  • Powerful and flexible functions allow renumbering of any Revit elements (Doors, Windows, Beams, Columns, Pipes, etc.) in a number of different ways
  • Writes swing direction for the doors into the door's properties
  • Writes flip/mirror orientation for the selected elements
  • Recalculates shared X, Y, Z coordinates
  • Creates new shared parameters and many more functions
  • Possibility to save numbering settings under the separate name
  • Possibility to sort elements in Ascending/Descending order
