During the past year, we made over 40 updates to our Wood Framing and Metal Framing BIM software for designing walls, floors, and roofs in Revit®. We’ll go through the most significant ones in this free 30-minute webinar on June 3rd.
Meeting the needs of framing professionals around the world drives us to continually improve our BIM tools. It’s how we build BIM together. The enhancements you’ll see in this webinar include new features, enhanced sample families, and requests made by clients that bring benefits to a large part of our user base who design prefabricated timber and light-gauge steel-framed buildings.
Although we hosted webinars as features were released during the course of 2020, we’re pulling it all together in this one so that you can have the rundown in one convenient place.
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 or LGS-framed buildings, architects, engineers, BIM managers, and out-of-box Revit users.
