Tilt-Up Wall Panels: Modeling & Documentation in Revit [WEBINAR]

Recently clients have expressed interest in working with tilt-up panels in Revit. Given the benefits of tilt-up construction and the number of people who work in the industry, we’re going forward with this webinar that will hopefully encourage engineers to design tilt-up projects in Revit. Flawlessly.

Join our free 30-minute webinar on April 8th and see how our Precast Concrete add-on can help you with the modeling and documentation of buildings comprising tilt-up wall panels. Whether you’re working with highly detailed models with connections and rebar (LOD350) or less detailed projects (LOD200), it’s worth saving your time by doing all the design work on one platform – Revit.

We will run through the modeling of insulated walls and solid walls, openings, cuts, and corner joints. Then we’ll place lifting points, support and connection plates for foundations, slabs, decks, beams, and joists. Temporary bracing (bracing props) will also be modeled for construction planning. You will see the automated process of wall reinforcement by using flexible rebar configurations. And last but not least, dimensions in elevations, plans, and piece drawings for each wall.

The webinar will be held twice, so please sign up for the session that’s more convenient for you. We especially invite precast designers and structural engineers to participate in this webinar. Content will also be of interest to out-of-box Revit users and those thinking of switching from AutoCAD 2D to BIM.

Multi-Framing with Model Groups in Revit [WEBINAR]

Would you like to speed up the framing, drawing, and scheduling process for your wood- and metal-framed designs in Revit? Model groups and multi-framing can bring you major time-savings. See how in our free 30-minute webinar on March 18th.

Intended for AEC professionals who design timber walls, roofs, or floors in Revit, the focus of this webinar will be on placing elements into groups and creating building modules. We’ll also show how framing and sheathing for standalone building elements can be produced simultaneously using the multi-framing function in our Wood Framing and Metal Framing design software. This is a good chance for architects, designers, and structural engineers to catch up with the latest advances in the timber and light-gauge steel framing industry and see how the processes of framing, drawing, and scheduling can be optimized.

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 designers of wood-framed buildings, architects, engineers, BIM managers, and out-of-box Revit users.

Wall Reinforcement for Precast Concrete Design in Revit [WEBINAR]

In this free 30-minute webinar we’ll show how to model rebar for precast walls in Revit automatically using the Wall Reinforcement tool that’s a feature of our signature Precast Concrete design software. Sign up and save your seat for March 4th!

Modeling reinforcement in precast and in-situ walls in Revit is time-consuming, so to make it easier we developed the Wall Reinforcement addon. It’s part of our Precast Concrete BIM Solution, which streamlines the whole design process based on the workflows and insights of precast experts around the world – and eliminates myriad mouse-clicks in the process.

The Wall Reinforcement tool can place external and internal reinforcement, straight and diagonal bars, stirrups around openings and perimeters, plus reinforcement for wall corners. The tool will recognize the shape of the wall and place rebar based on the configurations you set. If you have a sandwich or double wall, you can apply different rebar settings for the respective layers of the wall.

You can model strands like in the USA, perimeter rebar as in Australia, seismic joints as in Dubai, and sandwich walls as in Norway. So, come and join the webinar to start modeling real rebar in your Revit projects.

Smart Browser: Collect & Control Revit Families [WEBINAR]

In this free 30-minute webinar we’ll show how to use Smart Browser to store, preview, use, and modify any of your external Revit families while keeping them in one easy-to-access list. Sign up and save your seat for February 25th!

Since Smart Browser has modules that provide varying degrees of access and control, the tool is useful for engineers or architects working with private family libraries and even more so for BIM managers who have to control company-wide Revit family libraries.

In this webinar, we will cover the module that has the widest range of functionality: Smart Browser BIM Manager and its satellite BIM Tree Manager. These BIM and Revit project management tools have been developed and honed over the course of years based on the experience of the most advanced users around the world.

If you’d like to better control Revit families in libraries and within projects, then this a webinar you’ll want in on. Register below!

Auto-Inserting Connection Elements for Precast Concrete in Revit [WEBINAR]

In this free 45-minute webinar we’ll show how to insert connections automatically in Revit for different precast elements using the Smart Connections tool that’s a feature of our signature Precast Concrete design software. Sign up and save your seat for February 11th!

Do you routinely spend inordinate amounts of time placing grout tubes, lifting embeds, anchors, plates, connection loops, diagonal ties, and cuts in your precast designs? If you do, then you might be interested to know that all those elements and more can be placed automatically using our Precast Concrete BIM software. It’s one of those ways we help bring BIM to life by eliminating tasks that do not create value. (#reducingbimstress)

Our Precast Concrete solution lets you set line- and point-based families on faces of columns, beams, walls, floors and other elements. The configurations you create can be shared with colleagues, used in other projects, modified and updated anytime, automating much of your daily workflow as an AEC professional. Register below and see it in action.
