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!
The latest edition of our newsletter AGACAD Advances has several items of interest, including the US, Swedish, and German installments of the Global BIM Survey we began last year and two client success stories focusing on wood framing in Revit.
AGACAD is filling an important gap in the market for BIM tools with its latest product for Autodesk® Revit® users. The new Sandwich Panels solution makes it easy to create multi-purpose buildings with shell structures made of insulated panels in a unified BIM project environment.
AGACAD, the developer of advanced technologies for building information modelling and management, is proud to introduce the first BIM software for automating the design and documentation of full building envelopes with insulated sandwich panels in Autodesk Revit.
The package is the latest addition to AGACAD’s popular range of specialized framing add-ons for work with heavy timber, CLT, SIPS, ventilated facades and curtain walls and panels.
“This new technology fills an important gap in the market for BIM tools. Until now there was no way to rapidly create highly detailed insulated panels together with any kind of support framework and easily transform a Revit architectural model into an accurate structural model made of sandwich panels. Our Sandwich Panels suite enables new speed, efficiency and accuracy of design in a unified BIM project environment,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the Managing Director of AGACAD.
In designing sandwich panel buildings in Autodesk® Revit®, automation is a key factor in working efficiently. When it is applied in all project phases – modelling, documentation, and output to production – human and environmental resources may be used more wisely.
We have a solution that can help you achieve this. Introducing our Sandwich Panels BIM solution for Revit users.
Sandwich Panels helps BIM professionals make optimal choices, move much faster, and avoid errors at every stage – from conceptual design to technical design and construction – thanks to advanced automation, built-in best practices, and the ability for the entire BIM team to work in a unified project environment. Check it out in our live, free webinar on February 10!
We conclude the 2021 blog series with an article on a theme that has been with us and has been relevant throughout this year. And not only this year.
Sustainability. It has always been important to our company. Saving energy resources was one of the criteria for choosing the new office we moved into at the end of 2020. Our current office is located in an A+ energy class building, with energy-saving systems installed. We only print paper documents when we really need to, as most of our documents are digital. The AGACAD team sorts rubbish not only in the office but outside too. Some of our employees use solar energy at home, electric cars, scooters or bicycles. Still others prefer to walk to the office. So the AGACAD team is striving to live more sustainably, thinking about the planet’s resources and its future.
The AGACAD team also thinks about sustainability when developing products. A responsible approach to the environment and the desire to leave as small an ecological footprint as possible has led to the development of the latest products, Panel Packer and Sandwich Panels, for Revit users. The desire to contribute to sustainability has also guided us in the development of our existing BIM solutions for Wood Framing, Metal Framing, Precast Concrete and others.
Tagging elements in Revit is a relatively straightforward task. Revit has a range of default tags to offer and some basic functionality as well. You can even place tags automatically by chosen category. That is a great feature…until you need to adjust each tag on the drawings…keeping in mind that each drawing may contain dozens of them.
It’s an issue that Revit users commonly face. That’s why we developed and recently released a configurations-based solution for it. Introducing Smart Tags.
Smart Tags dramatically extends native Revit tagging functionality, saving you a lot of time during the documentation process. It can be used in combination with Smart Views and Smart Dimensions to take full advantage of automated drawing creation. Based on your criteria, you can preset what views will be created and how tags and dimensions will be applied. All this is done automatically once configurations are confirmed.
Placing dimensions on views in Autodesk® Revit® is a very time-consuming process, but it’s got to be done in order to have drawings to send to the manufacturer. So, the faster it can be done, the better.
Our auto-dimensioning technology for Revit – Smart Dimensions – is useful for wood and metal frames, precast elements, and more, but individual drawings are a bit different from plans, sections, and elevations. So, we have updated Smart Dimensions so that it gives better results in those views for dimensioning to the nearest surrounding elements.
Helping BIM professionals in the AEC industry automate their daily tasks is our aim, and this new feature of Smart Dimensions will definitely help in this regard.
Dimension to nearest
This new feature allows elements to be measured from the nearest grids, levels, floors, walls, etc.
AGACAD is proud to announce the release of Sandwich Panels, the latest solution to join the ranks of our specialized framing software for Autodesk® Revit®.
Panelized construction in general has become widespread in building design for the flexibility it brings to the manufacturing process and the speed with which panels can be installed on site. Since panels can be prefabricated in automated production facilities, accuracy is increased while cost and material waste are minimized. Once stacked and packed, panels may be sold locally or be bound for a far-flung port.
One type of panel that has surged among builders and designers in recent years is the insulated panel, also known as the sandwich panel. With their short installation time and large unit coverage, sandwich panels have gained popularity among certain building typologies, including storage and manufacturing warehouses, sports venues, shopping centers, and logistics facilities. We are happy to offer a solution for BIM professionals that streamlines the design of buildings composed of sandwich panels in Revit.
