New Smart Views Tool Released for Revit Users

AGACAD has a brand-new tool available that makes project documentation easier for architects, MEP engineers, and structural engineers who use Autodesk® Revit®. Our newest product – Smart Views – lets you create any number of views with automated dimensions for selected elements in Revit without creating an assembly.

Smart Views is especially suited for Revit users who need to make drawings of sections and elevations of any building element, all the way from preliminary design stages through to a detailed design. It could be for a cast-in-place concrete wall with MEP openings or just a casework, a wood-framed wall or window, an elevation of selected walls, or a section of a particular connection.

So whether you’re an architect, structural engineer, or HVAC engineer, Smart Views is here to make your documentation tasks in Revit easier. And faster. That’s why we made the tool: to remove some stress out of your daily work.

Great news for current users!

If you are a current user of our Precast Concrete, Wood Framing, or Metal Framing design software, we have included Smart Views in your existing license(s), free of charge! See the ACTIVATION INSTRUCTIONS.

Not a current user of AGACAD’s Revit and BIM tools? We warmly invite you to out Smart Views for free – please scroll down for instructions.

AGACAD launches rebar-modelling automation for Revit

PRESS RELEASE – Vilnius, 27 April 2020

AGACAD Ltd, the developer of advanced technologies for building information modelling and management, is proud to introduce BIM tools that generate detailed reinforcement for concrete walls and beams in Revit along with all shop drawings and production files.

The new Wall Reinforcement, Beam Reinforcement, and Column Reinforcement software with automated rebar-modelling functionality are part of AGACAD’s popular Precast Concrete suite of Revit add-ons.

“The addition of reinforcement detailing for precast concrete is a step forward that structural professionals have long awaited. There is a big need – modelling rebar can be very time-consuming but is increasingly important as BIM takes hold and models get more and more detailed. Now it is even clearer, as we like to repeat, that BIM is very good for precast and Revit is ideal,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the CEO of AGACAD.
