The result you’ll see in this webinar is a SIP panel project framed automatically in Revit. This framing technology automatically distributes all structural framing elements for walls, floors, and roofs and splits insulated foam core and structural sheetboard (such as OSB) automatically according to predefined settings. 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 SIP-building 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.

Placing MEP Hangers in a Revit Project [WEBINAR]

In this free 30-minute webinar on July 16th, you’ll get an expert-level tutorial on how to efficiently distribute hangers and supports for duct, pipe, conduit, and cable tray systems in Revit and how to copy scheduling information from interconnected elements to hangers. We’ll do all that and more using our MEP Hangers BIM Solution for Revit.

Made for HVAC engineers, fire protection engineers, plumbers, electricians, and BIM managers working in Revit, MEP Hangers uses flexible rules to add (or modify) hangers or supports to a selected MEP system, distributing them according to the inter-bearing distance or as a fixed number per segment. It can also split MEP line-based elements into predefined lengths, mark components for fabrication, and export bearing points to drilling robots.

The result you’ll see is an MEP model with hangers placed on all line-based MEP elements, connecting them to walls, floors, roof, or columns in the linked project according to user pre-defined rules. Hangers will have the parameters needed for scheduling and additional information added such as their coordinates in the project for drilling automation.

The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you. We invite all MEP & structural engineers as well as BIM coordinators to take a look and evaluate this tool. We hope you’ll join in!

See the best practices for daily use of our Wood Framing Suite tools and get familiar with the user interface and a typical workflow for framing, generating schedules and cut lists, and exporting data to CNC. Our Wood Framing tools can also be applied to framing buildings with CLT panels, SIPS, or heavy timber post-and-beams.

Starting with simple Revit elements (walls, floors, roofs), the results you’ll see are multi-layered walls, floors, rafters, trusses, and roof panels fully framed for prefabrication or on-site construction. Additional layers of cladding, roofing, insulation, sheathing and paneling will also be added to the overall build up of load bearing and non-load bearing building components. All panels and structural members will be automatically sorted for subsequent shop ticket generation.

Intended for all timber construction industry professionals: architects, engineers, drafters, manufacturers, 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.

Making Openings for Beams, Doors & Windows in Revit [WEBINAR]

This free 30-minute webinar on June 30th will be an expert-level tutorial about efficiently making openings for structural framing elements, doors, and windows in Revit® using our Cut Opening BIM Solution. Openings will be configured and created for beams of various shapes and sizes as well as for window and door openings, which will be transferred from the architectural model into the structural model.

The result you’ll see is a Revit structural file with an increased LOD due to the openings and placement of beam pockets. All walls will have openings corresponding to the sizes of doors and windows in the architectural model. Openings will be tagged to provide information about their size and elevation according to the level of your choice.

Structural engineers, architects, and BIM managers – we invite you to sign up. The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.

Topics to be covered:beam pocket modeled in Autodesk Revit using AGACAD's Cut Opening BIM tool

  • Opening settings for beams (structural framing)
  • Generating openings and beam pockets
  • Controlling and modifying openings
  • Possible modifications to opening families
  • Openings for doors and windows
  • Tagging openings

 

 

YOUR HOST

SOLUTION

Our Cut Opening Revit extension is BIM software that automatically inserts penetration holes for MEP services, structural framing elements, doors and windows in Autodesk Revit. After processing interference check results, it creates proper openings wherever ducts, pipes, cable trays, or conduit intersect walls, floors, ceilings, roofs, beams, and columns and will insert fire safety components in structures that have a fire rating. Gives accurate bills of materials and builders work drawings. Works with linked files.

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.
