Classification: The key to getting more out of BIM [WEBINAR]

So, let’s say you made the transition from designing in 2D to 3D some time ago. You and your team have become confident in using BIM workflows. Check.

But, are you using BIM to its full potential? The time, effort, and financial resources invested into implementing BIM demand that you get as much as possible out of it.

BIM data classification is precisely where you can get more out of BIM. In fact, it’s the key to unlocking its full value. That’s because BIM data classification makes data easier to understand, ensuring accurate and timely budgeting, planning, building, and management of a given asset.

Updating Metal Framed Models & Documentation Automatically in Revit [WEBINAR]

It’s time to kick off AGACAD’s 2023 webinar season!

Our first webinar of the year will be about how to automate light-gauge steel design in Revit using the Metal Framing solution. Specifically, how to deal with mid-project model changes.

When changes are made to the framing design, they affect many elements in your model. And not only the framing elements, but also the shop drawings and BIM data associated with them.

But, what if you need to make changes after having invested hours of work into framing design, element numbering, and shop drawings? Can you still get drawings and schedules done on time?

The Best Way to Model SIP Panels in Revit [WEBINAR]

Building homes out of structural insulated panels has become an increasingly popular prefabricated construction type. Designing SIP panel houses in Revit requires a good deal of optimization in order to more easily reach the desired result on time and on budget.

We’ve optimized the process in the form of a specialized framing plug-in for Autodesk® Revit®. It’s called Wood Framing SIPS.

Join our free webinar on December 14th during which you’ll see the process of 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, and your standard-specific configurations can be used again in future projects. We hope you can tune in!

Supercharge your Revit library sharing via new cloud platform [WEBINAR]

In every BIM project, engineers, designers, and BIM managers need to be able to share and access the correct content. The simpler and faster this can be done, while guaranteeing content integrity, goes a long way to ensuring that the project will be completed on time and on budget.

When you share Revit families and family libraries with colleagues and clients, can you easily control how you share them and who gets access? Do recipients get notified if any elements have been added or updated?

Our new Cloud platform and updated Smart Browser can help you share libraries easily and manage who has access to them. Join our free webinar on December 7th during which our Autodesk® Revit® users will learn how BIM teams can further simplify content coordination. We hope you can tune in!

Creating Prefabrication Drawings of Hangers & Supports in Revit [WEBINAR]

Designing MEP systems in Autodesk® Revit® requires hanger and support families to be precisely placed so that accurate builder’s work drawings can be made from the 3D model. Needless to say, it consumes lots of time that could otherwise be spent creating additional project value.

Join our free webinar on October 27th during which our BIM expert will show how to automatically insert hangers and supports in Revit models using the MEP Hangers add-on. He’ll also show how to then create detailed shop drawings using the Smart Documentation add-on. We hope you can tune in!

Maximize Precast Concrete Project Design Productivity & Precision [WEBINAR]

When it comes to designing precast concrete projects in Autodesk® Revit®, hundreds of families have to be placed accurately for every element (Wall, Beam, Column, Slab) in the 3D model. And shop drawings for each element must be made with the requisite dimensions, notes, and other annotations according to various standards.

While all of those tasks can be done in native Revit, it’s tedious, time-consuming, and laden with chances for mistakes to creep in.

That’s why we set out a few years ago to streamline the process. The result was our Precast Concrete suite that eliminates repetitive tasks and minimizes the possibility of error in precast projects in Revit. Tune in to our free webinar on October 13th during which our BIM expert will show how to improve your workflow by adding not only automation but also flexibility.

Long-term Solutions to Design & Manufacture Timber Buildings [WEBINAR]

Interested in finding a framing solution that you can use in Autodesk® Revit® projects, confident that it will keep up with and bring lasting value to your business years into the future? One that covers all the bases, from modeling and documentation to CNC export and panel logistics? Then you’ve probably found what you’re looking for.

Tune in to our free webinar on October 6th. You’ll get a high-level view of the typical (a.k.a. time-saving and cost-slashing) workflows used with our Wood Framing Wall / Floor / Roof applications for Revit, as well as the accompanying Wood Framing CNC Exporters and Panel Packer add-on.

Additionally, our BIM expert will show what can be done using our Wood Framing CLT, Wood Framing SIPS, and Wood Framing OAK solutions. Along with the results you can achieve, you’ll also see the new Wood Framing sample project that’s available for free download. A veritable timber framing smörgåsbord awaits you during this webinar. Don’t miss out!

Classify BIM data like a Pro [WEBINAR]

What do you do when your client or project partners request that BIM project content should be classified? Do you know the most efficient way to classify all BIM objects?
And what if you need to create custom classifiers, share them, store them in the cloud, and compare different classification systems to each other?

If you want to efficiently classify BIM project content, we’ll show you how all that and more can be done in Revit®, Navisworks®, and Tekla® using our BIMAXON ICS (Integrated Classification System) cloud-based system. Sign up down below for our free webinar on September 22!

9 easy steps to faster project documentation in Revit [WEBINAR]

Accompanying the launch of Smart Documentation, our newest add-on for Revit, we hosted a webinar to introduce the app to architects and engineers who want to complete drawings and schedules faster.

Since launching Smart Documentation, we’ve received a variety of questions about this toolset. So, we’ve decided to hold 3 specialized webinars in September: one geared toward architects, one for structural engineers, and one for MEP engineers.

In those webinars, we’ll show how you can generate 2D documentation from 3D models better, faster, and easier in Revit using Smart Documentation in each of those disciplines.

Quickly generate & control Revit project documentation [WEBINAR]

Throughout the years we’ve been optimizing BIM workflows, one thing has not changed. 2D documentation and shop drawings are the final results that building designers and manufacturers need to put out for the prefabrication and construction processes to move forward.

As BIM becomes an integral part of the AEC industry and workflows quickly adapt to it, we still need to produce many documents and detailed drawings, whether plans, sections, elevations and other project data.

Communication in the industry still hinges on documentation and its precision.
