​BIM software for efficiently designing wood-frame walls, floors and roofs with SIP panels

Wood Framing SIPS makes wood framing with structural insulated panels – prefabricated building components for use as walls, floors and roofs – fast and easy with real-time, full-project updates in Revit®. Plus the software generates views with automatic dimensions for panels or segments as well as accurate bills of materials and shop drawings. So quality production and accurate assembly on site are ensured.

Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2017, 2018, 2019

For a roof of any architectural shape, the software instantly splits a selected side or the entire roof by faces (slopes). Likewise, an entire floor can be split according to its supporting structure. Connectors, cuts, supports and other details can be distributed based on predefined rules or connection types and can then be modified or updated to suit the project design stage and the level of detail required. The insulated foam core between rigid board sheathing (of which SIPs are composed) are created as parts in Revit®. Wall, floor and roof frames with SIP parts and the layout of frame elements and details can be modified and updated whenever the project is changed. Dynamic update functionality can make changes to all frames with SIPs of the same type at once.

Wall, floor and roof frame elements in the project can easily be marked based on their properties and locations in the layer. And information for fabrication can be automatically generated with all desired views, schedules and drawings for each wall, floor and roof panel.

Floor Panel Layout




PREFABRICATED FLOOR PANELING

Takes the architect’s designed floor and automates panel layout planning. The software draws symbolic lines to indicate the future panels according to predefined rules. Then it creates real Revit floor panels.


  • Panel Layout Planning includes functions for better understanding how the floor will be divided. Users can control every division line and automate the division process by predefined rules
  • From the beginning, the architect’s designed floor can be divided into coarse partitions, or Regions. Regions can be created automatically by using Floor edges and supports (split lines), and also by Generic or System Openings with predefined distances
  • Regions can be divided into Panels by predefined spacing
  • Panels can be aligned, modified by selected floor face, and additionally split
  • Various automated splitting functions facilitate the process: users can split the panels in half, by maximum spacing, by middle to both ends, in middle and to both ends, from first selected, or from both ends
  • Selected Regions or Panels can be joined, if needed
  • Creates individual panels for the selected floor face or for the whole floor
  • These entire floor Panels can later be moved into the new phase through its Properties for better filtering and scheduling

Truss+




TRUSS FRAMING

Gives Revit® users a single robust platform to generate wood truss systems instantly, perform structural analysis, and auto-generate shop drawings tailored to your standards. Functions are versatile, parameters are easy to control, and changes occur in real time.


  • Build full truss systems in one go with the configurable 3D grid (escaping the limited and time-consuming nature of standard Revit® truss family insertion)
  • Easily assess options – such as wooden truss framing – in economic, structural or systemic terms, to make the best decisions
  • Create new parametric uniquely shaped truss families based on model lines and roofs for immediate use in your projects
  • Freely revise your Revit® model; update and adapt truss systems
  • Get real-time take-offs and views, automatic creation of shop drawings and cut lists, and easy export to CNC machines

Roof Panel Layout




PREFABRICATED ROOF PANELING



Enables easy roof panel planning and splitting into segments for prefabrication which can then be used in the roof framing process.

  • Panel Layout Planning functions let you better understand how a roof will be divided. Users can control every division line and can predefine rules to automate the division process
  • Initially an architectural roof can be divided into coarse partitions – regions. Regions can be created automatically on the basis of roof ridge ends and valley rafter bottom ends as well as windows and generic or system openings with predefined distances
  • Regions can be divided into panels using predefined spacing
  • Panels can be aligned and modified for an individual roof side or region and additionally split
  • A variety of automated splitting functions help to easily get the needed result. Panels can be split in half, by maximum spacing, from the middle to both ends, in the middle and to both ends, from the initially selected end or from both ends
  • Selected regions or panels can be joined, if needed
  • Creates individual panels for the selected roof side or for the whole roof
  • The full roof panels can later be taken to a new phase via their properties for better filtering and scheduling
