Framing Metal Walls, Floors & Roofs in Revit: Modeling & Documentation [WEBINAR]

Join our free 30-minute webinar on June 17th for an expert-level demonstration of modeling light-gauge steel structures in Revit efficiently and preparing accurate shop drawings and cut lists for them. Using our powerful Metal Framing BIM software that’s been continually improved based on the input of framing professionals from all around the globe, we’ll show how to quickly frame single- and multi-layer walls, floors, and roofs for prefabrication. (The tool can also be applied to designing ventilated facades and curtain wall systems.) We’ll go into more detail for LGS floors, rafter systems, and roof & floor trusses, and we’ll show how designers working on element documentation in Revit can save hours by eliminating repetitive tasks like filling in parameter values or dimensioning.

After placing Revit families in the model automatically, the results you’ll see are walls framed in several different ways and then a fully-framed building model that will include various multi-layered structures. Auto-sorting and marking all elements and newly-created structural members and producing shop drawings will be covered during this webinar.

All AEC industry professionals who design or manufacture steel structures (with or without the addition of ventilated facades or curtain walls) are welcome. Architects, engineers, drafters, and builders – we invite you to sign up! The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.

Precast Concrete Modeling & Documentation in Revit [WEBINAR]

Join our free 30-minute webinar on June 18th for an expert-level tutorial on how to efficiently design precast concrete structures in Revit. Hours of tedious manual tasks in the modeling, detailing, and documentation processes will be eliminated using our Precast Concrete BIM software, which handles slab layouts, wall panelization, detail distribution, rebar placement, and shop drawing prep.

The results you’ll see: Revit walls will be split into precast wall panels. Floors will be divided into slabs. Connections, grout tubes, plates, and lifting anchors will be inserted based on predefined configurations. Rebar for walls and beams will be placed. Shop drawings with proper dimensions and views will be generated in a snap. All of those tasks are automated by using our Precast Concrete Revit tool, so it saves lots of time for structural engineers, drafters, and BIM modelers.

The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you. We especially invite out-of-box Revit users and those thinking of switching from AutoCAD 2D to BIM to come see what’s up!

Framing with Heavy Timber in Revit [WEBINAR]

This free 30-minute webinar on June 10th will be an expert-level introduction to designing heavy timber post and beam structures in Revit. Using our Wood Framing OAK software, it’s just a matter of figuring out a workflow and creating the required families to design your own custom structures because the tool automates the framing and documentation process for even the most complex and unique post and beam designs. And in this webinar, we’ll show some new sample families that have been made to complement the tool.

The result you’ll see is a project of massive timbers framed automatically in Revit. With this framing technology, all structural framing elements for walls, floors, and roofs will be distributed, as will structural connections for creating common cuts for oak frames. Shop drawings and cut lists will be auto-generated, including all required views wherein elements are dimensioned, sorted, tagged, and scheduled and mass calculated.

Architects, engineers, BIM managers, drafters, builders, manufacturers – we invite you to sign up for this webinar to see how to bring your post and beam design process to the next level of automation. The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.

Framing Roof Panels, Trusses & Rafters in Revit [WEBINAR]

This free 30-minute webinar on June 3rd will be an advanced tutorial on how to design and generate roofs in Revit® using our Wood/Metal Framing Roof BIM Solutions. Traditional roof framing (i.e. built on site) and prefabricated roofs (built off site) will both be covered. We will also look into trussed roofs and their types as well as touch base on key topics relevant to designers working on small- and large-scale buildings where various timber and metal roof systems are used.

Starting from a simple Revit roof, the results you’ll see are fully framed multi-layered roof panels, trusses, and rafter roof structures; roofs split into panels for prefabrication; auto-sorting of all roof panels and structural members; and production of shop drawings.

All AEC industry professionals who design or manufacture timber or steel roofs are welcome. Architects, engineers, drafters, and builders – we invite you to sign up! The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.

Ventilated Facades in Revit [WEBINAR]

This free 30-minute webinar on June 4th will be about designing detailed, multi-story ventilated facade systems in Autodesk® Revit. What you’ll see is a BIM-to-Field workflow using our Ventilated Facades BIM software to efficiently design highly-detailed elements. See how to batch-insert hundreds of details throughout a Revit model and generate fabrication information (shop drawings and cut lists) with the necessary views, schedules, and drawings.

AEC industry professionals involved in the design or prefabrication of facades: engineers, designers, BIM coordinators, and managers at companies that design or manufacture facades for commercial, residential, or industrial (mainly residential) buildings – we invite you to sign up below to see how you might bring your facade design process to the next level of automation. The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.

Managing Revit Family Libraries [WEBINAR]

This free 30-minute webinar on June 2nd will be an advanced tutorial about creating and controlling a Revit family library by utilizing our Smart Browser BIM Solution. Keeping track of and controlling families to be used in projects and checking, verifying, creating, and batch-modifying parameters of multiple families and their types will all be shown, so this webinar is especially relevant to BIM managers. But it’s also intended for BIM team leads and members, as tailored software modules of Smart Browser give each Revit user the functionality and library access needed to do the job according to his or her role on the BIM team.

The result you’ll see is a family library wherein selected families will be modified to fit a certain standard set by the presenter. All data will be saved in a shared location for use in current and future projects. Following that, changes will be made in the family library and applied to an existing project containing unmodified families to show that implementation of this tool can be done at any step of the process.

Whether you’re an architect, structural engineer, or MEP engineer, a BIM team member, lead, or manager, this tool will help keep your virtual workplace tidy and consistent. It’s a boon for BIM managers who need to make sure the whole team is on the same page as far as what BIM content is to be used, updating libraries, maintaining a consistent database, who can edit what, etc. The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you. We hope you’ll sign up!

Plus, how to distribute details and elements for modeling connections common in CLT panels.

The result you’ll see is a CLT project with complex, custom connections for walls, floors, and roofs, like connection joists, dovetails, lap joins, etc. Connectors, cuts, and sheathing layouts will all be distributed per user-defined configurations. Shop drawings will be auto-generated with tags and dimensions inserted just the way you want and material schedules as well.

Architects, engineers, BIM managers, drafters, builders, manufacturers – we invite you to sign up for this webinar to see how to bring your CLT design process to the next level of automation. The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.
