Generate shop drawings in Revit® automatically with corresponding views & dimensions for metal, wood, precast concrete & other structural projects

Smart Assemblies speeds up production of assembly documentation in Revit. This plugin creates views, rules-based dimensions, and assembly sheets you need for combinations of structural and architectural elements. Smart Assemblies overcomes limitations in Revit functionality so that manufacturers and on-site personnel can generate shop drawings easily.

Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018

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 the 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.

Client Story:

Hanssen: Smart Assemblies is a “critically important tool”

Automation of shop drawings with AGACAD’s Smart Assemblies, a BIM solution for Revit, has given Hanssen Pty Ltd, a Western Australian firm, a competitive edge in its design-and-construct projects for mixed-use high-rise buildings.

  • Incredibly Speedy. Smart Assemblies enables you to prepare shop drawings for many selected elements.
  • Hundreds of hours per project saved. Revit users will save hundreds of hours per project using Smart Assemblies automation of shop drawing creation. Users will not need to add dimensions manually anymore!
  • Easy Updates. If there are changes in the project, the user just needs to select the assembly and update it with the “Update Assembly” feature. BIM solution Smart Assemblies will update it according to dimensioning settings that were adjusted before.
  • Easy Control Process. Smart Assemblies shows the situation with all created assemblies in a separate convenient dialog. At the same time user can see the list of elements that are not yet assembled. Such elements can be filtered and assembled with one click.
  • Error Prevention. Every assembly is displayed with a separate color that indicates the status. User can easily understand what assemblies are up-to-date or should be updated. All assembly updates happen in the real time that allows to avoid mistakes and to control all process of shop drawings creation easily.
  • Easy to Use User Interface.


- Jason Wallis, Technology Process Manager for Hanssen PTY LTD, Australia.
We’ve been using ‘Smart Assemblies’ at Hanssen Construction since it’s early inception and consider it to be a critically important tool in our business for the production of shop drawings. AGACAD were great with requesting our feedback during its development phase and since adopting it in our office their support has been amazing . What makes it so powerful is it’s open/sandbox design, the users imagination and willingness to experiment are it’s only limitations. We are impressed with how ‘Smart Assemblies’ has enabled our different departments to solve problems and increase drawing outputs. I would absolutely recommend T4R software and support for any company working with shop drawings.
- Tarmo Lähdesmäki, Construction Engineer at Insinööritoimisto Savolainen, Finland.
"Smart Assemblies is an essential tool in creating and managing assemblies. Without Smart Assemblies’ dynamic smart assemblies update making changes to multiple similar assemblies would be impossible. There’s lots of setting up to do but after you’re set, creating shop drawings becomes very easy."
