As 2022 draws to a close, we here at AGACAD want to thank all of our clients, trial users, webinar participants, blog readers, and followers for making our work worthwhile. We’d especially like to thank our partners who work with us in their various regions around the world, in particular our fellow ARKANCE Group members.
As a sign of our gratitude, we are offering 50% OFF perpetual licenses of individual BIM Solutions for Revit from now until Christmas. And 30% OFF perpetual licenses of our Wood Framing Suite, Metal Framing Suite, and specialized framing solutions for CLT, SIPS, and OAK.
This limited-time offer ends December 24th, so place your order soon.
In every BIM project, engineers, designers, and BIM managers need to be able to share and access the correct content. The simpler and faster this can be done, while guaranteeing content integrity, goes a long way to ensuring that the project will be completed on time and on budget.
When you share Revit families and family libraries with colleagues and clients, can you easily control how you share them and who gets access? Do recipients get notified if any elements have been added or updated?
Our new Smart Browser Cloud Platform can help you share libraries easily and manage who has access to them. Join our free webinar on December 7th during which our Autodesk® Revit® users will learn how BIM teams can further simplify content coordination. We hope you can tune in!
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.
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!
Quite a few updates are in store for our Smart Browser Revit add-on this year. Those updates will affect all three professional modules of Smart Browser: BIM Manager, Team Lead, and Team Member. To showcase what’s new, we’ll take the main module as an example, Smart Browser BIM Manager.
By way of reminder, BIM Manager module contains two tools: Smart Browser and BIM Tree Manager. Let’s look at what’s new with each, starting with Smart Browser.
Having consulted Revit users from all over the world who work in lots of different types of design companies, I can say that Revit users generally face similar challenges in working with Revit families and managing projects and have needs like these:
Working with Revit families
A quick and easy way to modify multiple families from different locations in one go;
to see in one window all the changes to be applied to the families, from the addition of a new Type to a formula change inside a given parameter;
to check every parameter of owned families and see if there are any duplicates or typos in naming;
to standardize the parameter scheme in families.
Managing Revit projects
A way to load, out of multiple Family Types, only the needed ones into a project;
to easily access all owned families;
to compare families used in a project to the ones in the family library to see if any changes were made;
to get detailed analysis of every single element inside a project with access to both visible and hidden parameters.
Sound like something that you or your BIM team would need? We recommend using the BIM Manager module of Smart Browser. A powerful Revit extension, it provides all the features described above and more besides, saving you time and improving results.
Keeping up with numerous Revit families is time-consuming work, especially in large libraries and projects. Even more so when you need to fill in information that comes from some external file, such as Excel.
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.
We have updated our Smart Browser solution for BIM managers by integrating our Sort Mark T4R Add-on into the Family Modification window so that users can work with all the Revit families they select for modification.
We hope this enhancement will help BIM and AEC professionals work even more efficiently when it comes to Revit family management. We made it with your needs in mind, for less stressful, more productive work in Revit.
