Sort Mark is a handy tool for Revit that can help you deal with numerous element parameters instantly. Although this plugin may look simple at first glance, it packs quite a punch, as it can apply parameter value systems to multiple elements simultaneously, saving lots of time and doing it error-free.
Most of our clients are aware that Sort Mark’s functionality is included in our Wood Framing, Metal Framing, and Precast Concrete solutions as well as Smart Documentation toolset for Revit. So, in this blog post, we’re pleased to announce an update for Sort Mark that helps you easily tell similar elements apart according to their geometry.
When it comes to designing precast concrete projects in Autodesk® Revit®, hundreds of families have to be placed accurately for every element (Wall, Beam, Column, Slab) in the 3D model. And shop drawings for each element must be made with the requisite dimensions, notes, and other annotations according to various standards.
While all of those tasks can be done in native Revit, it’s tedious, time-consuming, and laden with chances for mistakes to creep in.
That’s why we set out a few years ago to streamline the process. The result was our Precast Concrete suite that eliminates repetitive tasks and minimizes the possibility of error in precast projects in Revit. Tune in to our free webinar on October 13th during which our BIM expert will show how to improve your workflow by adding not only automation but also flexibility.
The latest edition of our newsletter AGACAD Advances has several items of interest, including the Japan installment of the Global BIM Survey we began last year and two client success stories focusing on wood framing in Revit.
Reinforcement in Revit has several parameters (rebar number, type, diameter, etc.) that can be included in tags and used in documentation. But standards governing reinforcement marking are sometimes fancier than the options provided by Revit, so different add-ons are created to perform specific tasks. In this case, we’ll take a look at our Sort Mark tool, which has gotten some new options in the latest update that make making custom marks even easier.
We’re pleased to announce that our BIM Solutions and Tools4Revit Add-ons are all ready to use with Revit 2023! Our BIM Application Engineers have tested the TOOLS4BIM DOCK against the latest Revit version to ensure complete compatibility.
Follow the instructions below to get our tools up and running in Revit 2023.
The visual programming interface of Dynamo enables designers with the tools to extract, manipulate, and move Building Information Model (BIM) data in ways that make optimized workflows accessible. Dynamo for Revit opens up an unprecedented parametric approach to projects.
With Dynamo as a visual programming tool, algorithms are connected to Revit’s parametric database, which determines conceptual design development via formulas, algorithms, and geometric functions and integration with Revit for optimization, automation, and documentation.
Revit users who design, build, operate, and maintain built environments often utilize Revit plugins to manage BIM data and enhance workflows. Now, it’s possible to engage the functionality of AGACAD’s BIM Solutions and Tools4Revit Add-ons while using Dynamo. Here’s how!
When making drawings in Revit, it’s important to be consistent and maintain some kind of system. The same goes for modeling and numbering. Our Sort Mark add-on is valued by many Revit users because it lets you number any Revit elements you want, saving you time and headaches.
There is one thing I would like to point out, though, that users might not know about Sort Mark app. It’s possible to renumber elements sequentially by drawing model lines and using them as a reference for numbering. Previously this feature worked fine with point-based elements, and now it works with walls too.
I’ll show an example of renumbering precast concrete walls, but this workflow can be applied to wood or metal framed walls too. Step-by-step instructions are below the video.
We’ve implemented a new feature for our Smart Walls Revit add-on. In addition to controlling gap distances and joins between walls, the tool now lets you manage interlocking precast wall panels, giving you more flexibility in building design modeling.
The new Interlock Split feature modifies enhanced joint connection details between reinforced precast concrete elements and reshapes wall profiles held together by vertical steel dowels or solely by shear friction.
Let’s look at what options you now have with Smart Walls when it comes to interlocking walls in Revit models.
Our Precast Concrete solution for Autodesk® Revit® users has always been a top-class product for increasing productivity. Autodesk recognized this by naming Precast Concrete as an AEC Industry Partner solution back in 2018. Since then, we’ve only continued improving it, implementing lots of updates and expanding its capabilities according to customers’ needs.
At the end of 2021, our team gathered forces to add many new features that had been requested by clients, so that Precast Concrete would continue to impress current and future users, Arkance Group members, Autodesk, and other partners. The features added were based on a questionnaire sent to current users, past requests from Revit users around the world, and years of development experience.
A massive amount of work was completed in two months, resulting in the implementation of many of the features people had requested. And the groundwork was laid for development of a new UI as well, but it will be released later due to interplay with other products.
In this post, we’ll go through what’s new with modeling and then move on to the documentation side.
