BIM software for designing ventilated facades

Ventilated Facades software makes it quick and easy to design ventilated facades in Revit® with highly detailed elements and real-time full project updates. That ensures you’ll get accurate bills of materials and builders work drawings, and accurate on-site assembly thanks to BIM-to-Field features.

Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2020, 2019, 2018

Together with Metal Framing Wall+ functionality, which is included, Ventilated Facades enables the instant large-scale insertion of hangers, fixings and brackets throughout your Revit model. Which means you’ll get high-quality framing models at the level of detail required.

Project elements can be easily marked according to properties and locations. And fabrication information can be automatically generated with all desired views, schedules, and drawings.

POWERFUL FEATURES

Wall+M

Design high-quality ventilated facades in Revit | AGACAD


COMPLETE METAL FRAME CREATION

Automate light gauge steel wall framing in Revit® with Metal Framing Wall+ that is 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
  • 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

Sort Mark



Sort and renumber Revit elements in different ways | AGACAD

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

Smart Connections




LOD 400 AUTOMATION IN REVIT®

Solution Smart Connections instantly adds any number of face-specific intelligent details – which adapt to host-element changes – throughout BIM models. Easily set up rules to insert or adjust details based on gravity point, depth, adjacent elements, and more. It saves many hours per project, especially for structural engineers.

  • Easy setup of insertion rules
  • Insert details on any face of host element
  • Use parameters of host elements to make your details smart and adaptive to host length, thickness, height, etc.
  • Insert details according to gravity point
  • Insert details based on surrounding elements
  • Save time by using update and modify options
  • Use interaction with Smart Assemblies to prepare shop drawings
