Metal framing BIM software for automated light steel wall frame design in Revit® including optional CNC output

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® 2021, 2020, 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.

Automated light gauge steel wall framing in Revit | AGACAD

COMPLETE METAL WALL FRAME CREATION

Automate light gauge steel wall framing work in Revit® using Metal Framing Wall+. This BIM solution 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 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
  • 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 and 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
  • Perform structural analyses without leaving Revit at any stage of design process
  • 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.)

Smart Walls




WALL & JOIN MANAGEMENT

Manage walls in Revit®: 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

Create 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 automatically renumbers them after any project change
  • Renumbers of any Revit elements (Doors, Windows, 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
  • Creates new shared parameters, recalculates shared X, Y, Z coordinates
  • Possibility to save numbering settings under the separate name
  • Possibility to sort elements in Ascending/Descending order, and many more functions

Testimonials

- Jeff Feucht, BIM Lead Coordinator at WPI Builds, USA.
Why I like AGACAD framing tools: "• *LIVE* schedule!!!! •Automated framing that puts in the right size studs without having to configure for all the different walls when needed for critical framing only option •Automated Panel numbering system that numbers panels the way I want •Easy workflow… no hiding critical options within a sub-menu...within another sub-menu, it's all right out front!! •Easy-to-use customizable headers – even box and nested •Easy-to-use customizable element labeling •Being able to design complex panel systems •Ability to make small changes in the panel with ease •Add-on software that makes things even easier •Other steel framing software I've used in the past are not even in the same league as AGACAD •Quick turnaround with viable solutions and aid to my questions and concerns and always a with a helpful attitude."
- Chandel Ninmann, Virtual Design/Construction Specialist at United Building Solutions, USA.
"The custom join tool has a really nice user interface. I’ve used one in the past that ended up being trial and error because the UI didn’t help the user understand what changes they were making. I’m happy to report that I was able to adjust my first join within minutes! I was also glad to see the preview adjust with each change and how each item drop down option made sense with how the items moved. Great solution, I’m excited to set it up in my project! Your team does great work!"
