Fully-featured Timber Roof Framing add-on for Revit®

Includes Roof Panel Layout

Roof Panel Frame (previous name Roof+) enables quick and easy creation of prefabricated wood framing for roofs in Revit® models. Powerful features simplify creation of roof joists, battens, valley joists, roof boards and more. The software automates shop drawings, including the sorting, tagging, dimensioning and scheduling of all frames.


Ideal for Architects, Structural Engineers, Prefabricated Roof Designers and Manufactures

Compatible with REVIT 2018, 2017, 2016

Roof Panel Frame (previous name Roof+) frames prefabricated roof panels. Roof Panel Layout automates panel layout planning of architectural roof. Based on predefined rules, the software draws symbolic lines that indicate the shape and location of future panels. Then it creates actual Revit® roof panels.

Possible workflow:


You can find the same features for Revit® floors too in our new Floor Panel Layout.

  • Create your own rules and templates, and use them for detailed multi-layer timber roof framing creation in Revit model
  • Frame large-sized roofs 10 times faster than using regular Revit features
  • Control joists, rim joists, nogging, bridging, blocking, bracing placement, configure openings, details, service hole positions and more
  • Auto-distribute battens, secondary frame and roofing
  • Freely revise your Revit® model simply by selecting the elements and properties you want to modify
  • Generate shop drawings and cut lists with just one click; get real-time take-offs and views, automatic sorting, dimensioning
  • Optional export to any CNC machine and CAD/CAM production line, such as WEINMANN, Randek, etc.

  • Roof frames and shop drawings update and adapt to any changes
  • Carry out structural analyses without leaving Revit, or export your wood frames to external analysis software at any stage of design process

Ideal for:

Structural EngineersEasy and professional roof framing based on architectural roof geometry
Prefabricated Timber Roof Designers and Manufacturers

Create prefabricated roof frames that meet user/company specific rules

ArchitectsMake real roof design and use it in the model presentment

Powerful features:

Efficiency

Automated modelling of timber roof framing, including joists, battens, bridging, blockings, rims, noggings, and more

Fully scalable: this software can be used on any structure whether it’s simple or complex, or even an irregular roof shape

Framing types are freely linked with roof types

Complex multi-layer roof framing: endless number of layers can be added

Automated details (support clips, hangers, web stiffeners, service holes, etc.) on bridgings, blockings and rim joists

Sheathing layouts are easily made and split by existing joists

Automatic sorting, tagging, dimensioning and scheduling (including mass) of all frames and sheathing layouts

Automatic addition of shop drawing views and schedules to the sheets based on user predefined template

Management

Easily transfer framing elements between the same groups or identical roof panels; simply predefine what elements should be affected: all roof panels from the same model group, from the instance model group, or selected roof panel should be unique in the building

Update frames according to architectural roof changes

Align joists across roof segments and between roofs and floors or walls

Modify Roof frame at any time and supplement it with additional members

Edit and increase your library with main types of roof framing

Fully customize all templates and rules; save framing, sheathing and shop drawing configurations for your future projects and share them with your team members

Interaction

Architectural roof can be split into prefabricated panels using Roof Panel Layout. It takes architectural roof and makes automated panel layout planning. The software draws symbolic lines according to predefined rules which indicate the future panels. Then it creates real Revit® roof panels.

Optional CNC output to joinery machines and multi panel production lines enable your model data to be automatically exported to manufacturing.

Compatible with BIM software Autodesk® Revit® Architecture / Structure and Building Design Suite.

Benefits

  • Incredibly Speedy Wood Framing Roof+ is designed for rapid project development. It possesses standardized and automated roof framing capabilities, and that, together with shop drawing generation, enables users to jump over a few major steps in building design.
  • Shop Drawings on the go Shop drawings are produced almost simultaneously as you frame your first roof panel. It i’s so easy to make templates that user might forget about this process. So, don’t forget to check whether everything is in order in the end, adjust a few details and you’re ready to celebrate the delivery of your project.
  • Easy Updates If there were changes done to the roof, the user just needs to update the frame of selected roof segment.
