Wood and Metal Framing software for Revit has been enhanced once again to save you time on probably the least “fun” process – documentation. After getting so many user requests, from now on you will not have to create new sheet templates in every project over and over again. Interested? Read on!
In previous versions of our Wood Framing software for Revit, after creating an assembly with automatic dimensions and tags, users had to drag views to the sheets and then set those Sheets as Templates to create other Assemblies within that project. Then, when users would start the next project, configurations remain and could be used straight away. But the Sheet Templates had to be created in each project for every configuration from scratch.
In the new versions of Wood Framing software, we’ve managed to enhance this workflow: you will not have to create new sheet templates for your assemblies anymore, as you will be able to use the existing ones from the Template Project.
The influence of structural and non-structural walls to Structural Framing’s and Wall’s connections in Revit is undoubtable and known to many who struggled with them. Why struggled, you may ask? Basically, if the wall is structural, end point of beam or truss automatically moves to the wall’s centerline instead of the external face of wall’s structural core.
Thanks to the enhanced Wood/Metal Framing Wall+, Floor+ and Roof+ software, you’ll be able to add customizable, complex dimensions with completely new dimensioning technology – Smart Dimensions.
Although in the past you could also add dimensions to your shop drawings automatically, with Smart Dimensions, you can configure them from the simplest variation, where dimensions will be added only to a predefined layer, to more complex variations, where all layers will be dimensioned.
With Smart Dimensions, you’ll be able to automatically dimension Structural Framing elements, Point Based elements, Parts, Columns, Walls, Floors, Grids, Ducts, Pipes, and much more.
Recently, Team AGACAD has made quite a lot of significant changes in its Framing software for Revit to automate your work even more yet still provide flexibility. Who wouldn’t want to create and use different Detail configurations for the same Wall Type; calculate Gravity Points for Wall, Floor, or Roof panels; or customize complex dimensions with completely new Smart Dimensioning technology? You’ll be able to do all that and more!
Read on to find out the benefits of the enhanced versions of Wood/Metal Framing Wall+, Floor+, and Roof+.
AGACAD develops new functionality fast to meet the current needs of industry-leading clients. Learn about the major innovations we’ve achieved in our wood and metal framing solutions in the last 6 months.
We kindly invite all existing Wood and Metal Framing users as well as potential users to attend this webinar. You’ll get to hear the latest news and see all the most valuable enhancements.
One of our guiding principles is that our software should meet our clients’ needs. With that in mind, what could be better than giving users the ability to create their own elements? Hence, the need for unique elements arises, usually from structural engineers intending to minimize heating losses or economize material consumption. That’s why from now on, you can create custom headers, sills, and top plate supports in your metal or wood framing project!
Furthermore, that is not the only new feature to be excited about. You’ll also be able to create views with sub-assemblies in the shop drawings, Align Studs with Project Base Point – distribute Studs project-wise instead of wall/floor/roof segment-wise and finally, add customizable complex dimensions with completely new dimensioning technology – Smart Dimensions.
Modelling timber frame houses in Revit would be a tough challenge. Can you imagine creating all those framing members one by one?
Luckily, you don’t have to. With the help of AGACAD team’s software, which automates wood framing work with walls, floors and roofs in Revit® projects, all you have to do is predefine rules, and the application will do all the work from design (modelling the frame) and documentation (creating workshop drawings and schedules) to wall segment fabrication and construction.
To implement the latter, AGACAD has created a new application for Autodesk® Revit® to export multi-layered frames of wooden walls, floors and roofs to automated panel production lines.
As you can see in the illustration below, a few more openig types were added, beside Windows and Doors, you can now predefine rules for Generic Openings and System Openings (the ones that are created while editing walls’ profile) as well.
Hello and welcome to the next article for architects about our brilliant solution for Revit – BIM Tree Manager . As you may already know, last month we started a BIM Tree Chimpanzee blog series that teaches how this tool can help architects, structural engineers, and MEP engineers use BIM to its full potential, so stay up to speed and take a look at our previous articles! You can find links at the end of this article.
Project documentation is a time consuming process, yet it is necessary, so it is useful to know a few tricks to make it a lot easier, faster and smoother. It’s simple when your view fits on a single sheet and you don’t need to think about its’ exact position on a sheet, but that isn’t always the case.
So what is the best way to split and place one view on two or more sheets?Read more »
