This free 30-minute webinar on July 23rd will be an expert-level introduction to modeling homes with SIP panels in Revit. Using our Wood Framing SIPS software, the main task is customizing the settings to fit company standards. After that, the framing and documentation process is all automated.
>The result you’ll see in this webinar is a SIP panel project framed automatically in Revit. This framing technology automatically distributes all structural framing elements for walls, floors, and roofs and splits insulated foam core and structural sheetboard (such as OSB) automatically according to predefined settings. Shop drawings and cut lists will be auto-generated, including all required views wherein elements are dimensioned, sorted, tagged, and scheduled and mass calculated.
Architects, engineers, BIM managers, drafters, builders, manufacturers – we invite you to sign up for this webinar to see how to bring your SIP-building design process to the next level of automation. The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.
In this free 30-minute webinar on July 16th, you’ll get an expert-level tutorial on how to efficiently distribute hangers and supports for duct, pipe, conduit, and cable tray systems in Revit and how to copy scheduling information from interconnected elements to hangers. We’ll do all that and more using our MEP Hangers BIM Solution for Revit.
Made for HVAC engineers, fire protection engineers, plumbers, electricians, and BIM managers working in Revit, MEP Hangers uses flexible rules to add (or modify) hangers or supports to a selected MEP system, distributing them according to the inter-bearing distance or as a fixed number per segment. It can also split MEP line-based elements into predefined lengths, mark components for fabrication, and export bearing points to drilling robots.
The result you’ll see is an MEP model with hangers placed on all line-based MEP elements, connecting them to walls, floors, roof, or columns in the linked project according to user pre-defined rules. Hangers will have the parameters needed for scheduling and additional information added such as their coordinates in the project for drilling automation.
The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you. We invite all MEP & structural engineers as well as BIM coordinators to take a look and evaluate this tool. We hope you’ll join in!
