Exporting Wood/Metal Framing BIM Models from Revit to CNC Machines or CAD/CAM Production Lines [WEBINAR]

In this free, 30-minute webinar on May 6th, we’ll go through how models of wood- or metal-framed constructions can be exported from Revit to various CNC-machine-readable formats and CAD/CAM automated production lines. We’ll talk about some of the most popular formats, their setup, possibilities, and usage. The webinar will cover regular framing, heavy timber, and panel (for example, CLT) exports.

The results you’ll see are several file format exports from some Revit models. Later, those files will be viewed in different production simulators or viewers that have been provided by machinery manufacturers. Also, we’ll compare and contrast exported data with the information in the Revit models.

Engineers, BIM Managers, drafters, builders, and especially manufacturers, we hope you’ll join in this free webinar. It’s for all AEC industry professionals involved in designing or manufacturing small- and large-scale buildings in which various timber and/or LGS framing technologies are used. The webinar will be held twice, so please register below for the session that’s more convenient for you.

Topics to be covered:

  • CNC machine-readable formats commonly used by AGACAD clients
  • Exporting timber or metal models to various CNC machine-readable
    formats
  • Showing parameter values in exported files and where they are taken from in the Revit model
  • Exporting complex timber connections for some specific formats
  • Review
    of the exported data in various
    simulators and viewers, used by manufacturers

    SOLUTIONS

    Our framing software for designing timber floors, walls, truss & rafter roofs in Autodesk Revit makes framing fast and easy. Distribute connectors, cuts, supports, and other details by the batch-load based on predefined rules or connection type. Modify and update in real time to suit the project design stage and the LOD required. Generate views with automatic dimensions as well as accurate bills of materials and shop drawings. All that ensures quality production and accurate assembly on site. Plus your model can be exported to various CNC machines and CAD/CAM production lines.

    The same goes for our Metal Framing BIM Solutions for Revit.

    We hope to see you online!
