Wood Rafter Systems in Revit® for Any Geometry
Wood Framing Rafter+ lets you quickly create full rafter systems in Revit® models for timber frame roofs of any shape or complexity. Custom-framing functions and versatile schedule generation further accelerate BIM workflow. No more drafting – you just design and decide.
- Frame an entire roof based on its 3D model including hip/valley rafters, ridges, girders, collars, battens, horizontal beams, sleepers, trimmers, etc.
- Auto-detect and frame roof openings; cope ends of existing beams
- Freely revise your Revit® model; update and adapt rafters and beam systems
- Get real-time take-offs and auto-sorting
Compatible with BIM software Autodesk® Revit®, Revit® Architecture, Revit® Structure, and Building Design Suite.
Ideal for architects, structural engineers, and manufacturers of timber houses and 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. Also available separately.
Selected additional Wood Framing Rafter+ features:
Easy control of vertical distance of collar and girder beams
Full control of birdsmouth joint parameters, cutting of existing rafters
Extension/trimming of beams, splitting/recreation of beam systems
Frame elements are easily grouped, sorted and renumbered
Perform static analysis in Revit or export analytic model to structural analysis software
All templates and rules fully customizable; popular schedule
Configurations save as templates for future reuse with just one click
Built-in clash detection; works well with Cut Opening
User-friendly interface with intuitive mouse-driven menus and 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
