Revit® Turbocharger for Timber Frame Floors
Wood Framing Floor+ automates wood framing work with floors in Revit® projects. It's powerful, flexible and easy to use. It helps you make better decisions, move much faster and avoid errors at every BIM stage – from design and documentation to segment fabrication and construction.
- Auto-generate detailed multilayer floor framing for your Revit model using predefined or custom rules and templates
- Frame multi-story houses 10 times faster than using standard Revit interface
- Easily control supporting structure, including battens and flooring; distribute details, service holes and more
- Automate sheathing layouts
- Freely revise your Revit model by easily selecting the elements and properties you want to modify
- Find structural and engineering clashes; cut and frame openings according to predefined rules
- Easily prepare shop drawings and cut lists, with all required views, where elements are dimensioned, sorted, tagged, scheduled, and mass calculated
- Optional export to any CNC machines and CAD/CAM production lines, such as WEINMANN, Randek, etc.
- Floor frames update and adapt according to any changes
- Perform structural analyses without leaving Revit or export your wood frames to external analysis software at any stage of design process
Compatible with BIM software Autodesk® Revit®, Revit® Architecture, Revit® Structure, and Building Design Suite.
Ideal for architects, structural engineers, and manufacturers of timber-frame houses or other wood constructions.
Part of the AGACAD Wood Framing Suite, a dynamic set of solutions which leverage the full potential of Revit and the insights of global BIM experts, which is also available separately.
Selected additional Wood Framing Floor+ features:
modeling of floor's wood framing members including joists, battens, bridging,
blockings, rims, noggings, and more
Fully scalable: from simple structures to complex multi-level buildings; irregular floor shapes
Easy transfer framing elements between same groups or identical walls in different levels of buildings by predefining what elements building designer is going to affect: all walls from the same model group, from the instance model group, or selected wall should be unique in the building
Framing types easily linked with floor types; can be preset for bearing or non-bearing floors
Complex multi-layer floor framing: unlimited number of layers
Automated details (support clips, hangers, web stiffeners, service holes, etc.) on bridgings, blockings and rim joists
Alignment of joists across floor segments and between floors and walls
Floor frame can be modified any time and supplemented with additional members
Sheathing layouts can be easily generated and split by existing joists
Built-in clash detection between structural and
engineering objects; automated floor openings and flexible framing around it
Library with main types of floor framing can be edited and expanded
Automatic sorting, tagging, dimensioning and scheduling (including mass) of all frames and sheathing layouts
Shop drawing views and schedules are added automatically to the sheets according to user predefined template
All templates and rules are fully customizable; framing sheathing and shop drawing configurations can be saved for the future projects and shared between company team members
Easy setup, user-friendly interface with intuitive mouse-driven options
Optional CNC output (Hundegger, Randek, Weinmann, ...) to joinery machines and multi panels production lines enables your model data to be automatically exported to manufacturing
