Sharing is caring. That’s always true in families and communities, especially during the holidays. And it’s also very true in the world of BIM, where providing for each other’s information needs is key. For collaboration, for automation – for good decision-making and state-of-the-art solutions.
This year, while working remotely amid the pandemic, designers, architects, engineers, builders, property managers and others have all felt more sharply than ever how vital the effective exchange of data is.
In terms of data to exchange, accuracy takes effort. But clarity, real usefulness, takes more.
It takes the gift of BIM data classification. Use of a common language so each can understand others’ information. An effort that benefits all and a major step to unlock the benefits BIM offers.
That’s our wish for you in 2021: that you explore data classification more closely (a great New Year’s resolution!) and work to make it a reality in your organization. We at AGACAD are ready and eager to help you do that more easily and better than you otherwise could.
Allow us also to wish all of you health, tenacity, and hope amid any hardships. New strengths, new ideas, and new opportunities from the current circumstances in the world. And firm faith in a very bright future.
Visitors to the legendary Crystal Palace, built in London for the Great Exhibition of 1851, were said to be awed by its unprecedented expanses of glass – 900,000 square feet of it (84,000 square metres). So much natural light. So spacious. Such openness to the surrounding Hyde Park, including three large elm trees left standing inside.
We’ve been diligently testing our Tools4BIM DOCK* against Revit 2021 to ensure complete compatibility of all the BIM Solutions and Tools4Revit Add-ins therein. Thanks for your patience, those of you who’ve been awaiting the pronouncement. We’re glad to say our tools are ready to use with Revit 2021!
*The Dock is an interactive window in Autodesk® Revit® that allows you to access and manage all software products developed by AGACAD to help you get more out of Revit. Read more about the Tools4BIM Dock.
Here’s how to get our tools running on Revit 2021.
For current users of our software
To companies/individuals who have an active license maintenance/subscription of at least one of our tools, we’ve sent an email containing software activation codes and a link to download our 2021 Tools4BIM Dock. (If you can’t find it in your inbox, please check your spam folder.)
NB: If you’re with a company, please ask your BIM manager or IT coordinator for these codes.
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 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.
We want to let you know that, amid what for some is a time of disruption, AGACAD’s team of engineers and developers continues functioning at 100% plus. Working remotely with customers all over the world is not new for us. We’ve been doing that routinely for more than a decade.
Now is a really good time to enhance your business processes – not just for current circumstances but with long-term vision. After all, the world is evolving, and so is AEC. Including BIM best practices (which are built into our solutions).
We encourage you to use this time to grow your team’s productivity and expertise. To help, we’re offering special short-term licenses and quick trainings: 3-month licenses for teams of 3/5/10+ users and training of the team within 1 business day.
We offer all training, consulting and demos online, with the GoToMeeting platform, and also consult by phone and email, drawing on how other companies have solved design challenges like yours.
We are pleased to announce that our Wood Framing BIM Solution for Revit has been recognized as an AEC Industry Partner solution by Autodesk. It joins our Precast Concrete software, which made us one of the first AEC Industry Partners back in October 2018.
“This is recognition of the value that our add-on solutions provide – the time, money and stress that they save – for Revit users all over the world by automating much of their work and adding powerful new functionality for specific industries, regions and firms. We look forward to engaging even more with Autodesk to address the ever-evolving real-life needs of BIM professionals,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the CEO of AGACAD.
AEC Industry Partners are trusted technology providers that Autodesk selects for their discipline-specific solutions which complement its own offerings. Partners build on top of Autodesk’s BIM and cloud platforms to enable customers to work more efficiently, deliver better designs, and reduce waste. The designation of AEC Industry Partners is part of a strategy for bringing new and transformational technologies into industry workflows.
“We see partners like AGACAD as being critical to helping our engineering customers deliver BIM-based services in a more profitable way. They are able to provide the needed automation and customization for factories to scale up their businesses more quickly,” said Michael Gustafson, Autodesk’s Industry Strategy Manager for Structural Engineering.
AGACAD is pleased to welcome M&F tecnica, Inc., a leading Tokyo-based BIM developer and advisory firm, as its exclusive partner for the sale and support of AGACAD’s solutions for BIM in Japan. The company joins AGACAD’s ever-growing list of local partners around the world.
“This new partnership further strengthens AGACAD’s ability to ensure excellent service for customers in Asia,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the CEO of AGACAD. “M&F have been pioneers of BIM in Japan. With two decades of experience in building design and related IT solutions, they are true experts on Revit and the needs of BIM professionals,” he adds.
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!
