During the past 2 months we’ve hosted several live webinars covering specialty framing in Revit. On the timber side, those included structural insulated panels, cross laminated timber, and post-frame (a.k.a. heavy timber, mass timber, or oak) constructions. And for metal framing, we delved into ventilated facades, glazing, and curtain walls & panels. In this post we’ve gathered those webinars into one place.
In each webinar, our BIM application engineer shows the workflow for using our wood and metal framing tools in tandem with custom Revit families and configurations to model walls, floors, and roofs; distribute connection details and hardware; generate shop drawings and cut lists; and export to CNC machines, where applicable.
Without further ado, here’s our 2020 collection of 5 webinars about specialty framing in Autodesk Revit.
In March we unveiled a new tool called Beam Reinforcement that automates placing rebar in precast concrete beams in Revit.
During the webinar our engineer showed how to set up reinforcement configurations and apply them to rectangular beams, L beams, and IT beams. He also went recapped how to use our Precast Concrete design software to model beams with connection details and generate shop drawings.
Here’s a sneakpeek.
If you’d like to see the full webinar, head over to our YouTube channel to watch it. While there, please subscribe.
Upon client request, we went forward with developing another Revit tool for placing rebar, this time for precast concrete beams. Introducing our Beam Reinforcement tool for Revit!
In this initial release, you can use it to place main rebar and stirrups in beams with rectangular, L, and IT sections. While it’s primarily made for precast, it also works for cast-in-place. See the workflow for reinforcing beams automatically in Revit.
Wood Framing Floor for Revit (v. 2020) is now in the Autodesk App Store. You can download free trials of this BIM Solution and our other Revit add-ons from either the App Store or via our TOOLS4BIM Dock.
By way of reminder, free tools (Smart Browser Free, Cut Opening Free, Smart Select) have no limitations — they’re completely yours to use.
Trial versions of our paid Revit plug-ins have no limitations for the duration of the two-week trial and include support during the trial period. That means our BIM application engineers are at your disposal to help you out and give a live demonstration. To get assistance, all you need to do is…
We invite you to join in our webinar showing the latest updates made to our Wood Framing and Metal Framing software for Revit. Additionally, we’ll take a tour through the new user interfaces that have been made for our wall, floor, and roof framing solutions.
Among the updates we’ll show are framing reports & suggestions, wall validation, and the possibility of having customized studs or joists composed of multiple elements. More on those and other enhancements below the registration table.
The 30-min presentation + Q&A will be hosted twice on February 27th, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.
Whether you’re a seasoned user of our Wood Framing or Metal Framing software and want to see what’s new or maybe you’re just thinking about transitioning your framing process from 2D to BIM, we hope you’ll join in this webinar.
February 1, 2020 marks 29 years that we’ve been creating and delivering tomorrow’s AEC. We’ve come a long way in that time, thanks to the vision of our founder Gintaris Aksomitas, our outstanding team of Revit and BIM professionals who continue to make his vision a reality, and you, our software users all around the world, who put our tools to use and have contributed ideas for further improvement. THANK YOU for sticking with us and for trusting us to deliver. You can count on us to keep sharing BIM advances and building BIM together.
Our current R&D focus is “∞D BIM” and buildings with artificial intelligence – an unavoidable part of the future of AEC. CEO Donatas Aksomitas has begun examining key related issues for effective BIM data management and exchange on his new blog BIMAXON. We invite you to check it out.
We also thank our trial users, webinar participants, and followers on social media. We hope many more of you will join in!
Does finding content in your Revit® library eat up too much time? How about modifying Revit families?
If so, then sign up for our free webinar about efficient BIM content management using our Smart Browser software for Revit. It makes browsing, sorting, managing, and controlling Revit families a breeze and drastically reduces the time required to modify them.
Especially for BIM managers, BIM content creators, and Revit users. Whether you’re a seasoned user of Smart Browser or you’re curious to see what this BIM content management software is capable of, we hope you’ll join in!
Among the updates we’ll show are:
enhanced UI. (The old UI looked like this… → )
load multiple Families or Family Types simultaneously
change view to thumbnail view (large/medium) or list view
dock the Smart Browser window in Revit – just like you can with Revit’s Properties or Project Browser windows
auto-sort and renumber Revit elements using the integrated Sort Mark add-on (more on that after the jump)
