Shop Drawings Generation with Corresponding Views and Dimensions

Smart Assemblies is a solution for much faster production of assemblies’ documentation in Revit®. It creates the views, rules-based dimensions, and assembly sheets you need for combinations of structural and architectural elements. Smart Assemblies thus overcomes limitations in Revit functionality, so that even manufacturers and on-site personnel can generate shop drawings easily.


Compatible with Autodesk® Revit®, Revit® Architecture / Structure /MEP, Building Design Suite.
For structural engineers, drafters, fabricators and architects who need to create precise detailing and fabrication shop drawings for concrete, steel and wood structures and their parts.

Smart Assemblies creates not only assemblies and corresponding views from the selected constructive elements but also automatically generates dimensions in views by predefined rules.

Smart Assemblies combines multiple hosted or nested concrete and steel elements into a single entity and automatically generates shop drawings with needed views and sections, proper dimensions, text notes and schedules under user's predefined rules in shop drawing configuration. It also updates existing shop drawings if any changes are made to the project.
