Cross-laminated timber is a burgeoning material for constructing sustainable buildings. Sustainability, though, is not only about the use of appropriate building materials – it’s also about sustainable processes. The key, therefore, is to make the design process as efficient as possible.Read more »

Keeping up with numerous Revit families is time-consuming work, especially in large libraries and projects. Even more so when you need to fill in information that comes from some external file, such as Excel.Read more »
Logistics planning is a crucial step in off-site prefabrication of timber or steel wall, floor, and roof panels. The more efficiently it can be done contributes to time and cost savings as well as overall sustainability as the project moves from the design phase to the construction site.Read more »
AEC professionals in the light-gauge steel (LGS) framing industry face constant pressure to churn out deliverables, like drawings and schedules. Modeling and updating a frame in Revit® manually, however, means hours of additional work. Not to mention errors.
And mistakes at the design stage result in wasted resources, increasing the carbon footprint of the building project.Read more »
In precast concrete design projects, a given precast element may have hundreds of rebars of different shapes and diameters. As detailers and structural engineers know, it takes a lot of time to model all of them manually.
So, Revit® users go on the hunt for ways to do it automatically that would save time and also eliminate errors.Read more »
Working on building projects requires a lot of attention to the details and precisely organized technical information. A lot of time is spent on repetitive tasks to sort, number, and mark dozens of elements by position, technical specification, function, and other criteria.
The architect marks door elements by type and fire classification; the structural engineer sorts and numbers beams by length and structural capacity; the manufacturer creates a schedule with all the brackets and studs sorted by type and other parameters. All of that takes many hours to do.
Although Autodesk® Revit® itself has a lot of features to manage projects and generate the requisite data and documents, it still takes up quite a lot of time to sort and mark elements. Architects and engineers who use Revit encounter issues like those below frequently. Can you relate?Read more »
In designing sandwich panel buildings in Autodesk® Revit®, automation is a key factor in working efficiently. When it is applied in all project phases – modelling, documentation, and output to production – human and environmental resources may be used more wisely.
We have a solution that can help you achieve this. Introducing our Sandwich Panels BIM solution for Revit users.
Sandwich Panels helps BIM professionals make optimal choices, move much faster, and avoid errors at every stage – from conceptual design to technical design and construction – thanks to advanced automation, built-in best practices, and the ability for the entire BIM team to work in a unified project environment. Check it out in our live, free webinar on February 10!Read more »
Creating assemblies is a useful feature in Revit. It lets you take advantage of the benefits that working with assemblies brings, such as separate drawings for assemblies and easier project documentation.
But what happens when you need to detail individual elements that are already part of an assembly?
Revit doesn’t have a feature for doing specifically that, so Revit users often face problems like these:Read more »
We hosted 17 webinars this year, including topics on precast concrete, framing with wood and metal, Revit library and project management, MEP design and coordination, ventilated facades, and shop drawing preparation. Our BIM Solutions that run on Autodesk® Revit® cover a wide swath in the AEC industry, allowing BIM professionals and team to work more efficiently together.
Without further ado, here are our 5 most-viewed webinars of 2021.
FYI, all of our webinars have timestamps. So that means, if you view them on YouTube, you can see what topics are covered in the video and skip to the segments of interest to you.

#1 – The Best Way to Start Framing in RevitRead more »
The importance of coordinating and designing openings in Revit should not be underestimated. Whether for doors, windows, structural, or MEP systems, it must be done accurately, as quickly as possible, and be readily adaptable to design changes. Setting up a system where such tasks may be performed easily, however, can cost considerable man-hours.
Here’s the good news: AGACAD has developed the software and workflow that allow Revit users to automatically insert openings based on clash-detection analysis. Once openings are generated, the software naturally accommodates them so that, for example, a duct passing through a wall is taken into account.
We invite you to sign up below for this free 30-minute webinar on August 26th during which we’ll show the process that streamlines the insertion of penetration holes in the context of a timber or light-gauge steel framing project.
The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you. Content will especially be of interest to architects, engineers, BIM managers, out-of-box Revit users, and designers of wood or metal walls, roofs, or floors.Read more »
