The definitive solution for wood framing with Revit®

Top Revit® users call AGACAD’s Wood Framing Solution the most powerful and flexible BIM software on the market for constructions with multi-layer timber-frame walls, floors and roofs. That includes prefabricated panels, rafters and trusses, and robust SIP, CLT and post-and-beam solutions.

Advanced automation and built-in best practices help BIM professionals make optimal choices, move much faster, and avoid errors at every stage – from design and documentation to fabrication and construction.

It’s easy to quickly batch-add, modify or mark just the right elements or parameters, distribute details, flexibly manage openings and connections, and find clashes. Frames dynamically update and adapt, ensuring that shop drawings and cut lists are always accurate.

DESIGN

WF Suite is ideal for modelling both residential facilities and commercial multistory buildings accurately and efficiently. The Multi-Framing feature for copying and updating framing elements (and documentation) for identical walls, floors and roofs radically reduces the time needed to model large-scale projects. Also, individual panel frames’ analytical lines are inter-connected and aligned in the same plane, and can be exported to structural analysis software and further processed to create a full analytical model.

INTEGRATE

Coordination of BIM teams is greatly enhanced by integrating WF Suite with the Cut Opening BIM Solution, which identifies structural and engineering clashes throughout your Revit® model and creates openings with fire safety components for all MEP services and building structures at the relevant intersections.

FABRICATE

Frames created with WF Suite may be exported for production to a WEINMANN, Randek or various other CNC machines or CAD/CAM production lines. Optional CNC export is good for workflow integration, eliminates duplicate work and reduces room for error.
