Creating Prefabrication Drawings of Hangers & Supports in Revit [WEBINAR]

Designing MEP systems in Autodesk® Revit® requires hanger and support families to be precisely placed so that accurate builder’s work drawings can be made from the 3D model. Needless to say, it consumes lots of time that could otherwise be spent creating additional project value.

Join our free webinar on October 27th during which our BIM expert will show how to automatically insert hangers and supports in Revit models using the MEP Hangers add-on. He’ll also show how to then create detailed shop drawings using the Smart Documentation add-on. We hope you can tune in!

9 Ways to Improve the Quality of Your MEP Documentation & Save Time in Revit

Generating drawings and completing other project documentation can take a good chunk of time even when you have a well-prepared Autodesk® Revit® model. Placing dimensions and tags, marking elements, creating legends, generating views and sheets can all be automated with AGACAD’s newest product – Smart Documentation.

As an MEP engineer, I know how time-consuming it can be to properly document a Revit model. So, in this blogpost I’m going to show 9 ways you can speed up the project documentation process and improve the overall quality of your Revit projects.

But first, a short intro about the productivity toolset itself.

9 easy steps to faster project documentation in Revit [WEBINAR]

Accompanying the launch of Smart Documentation, our newest add-on for Revit, we hosted a webinar to introduce the app to architects and engineers who want to complete drawings and schedules faster.

Since launching Smart Documentation, we’ve received a variety of questions about this toolset. So, we’ve decided to hold 3 specialized webinars in September: one geared toward architects, one for structural engineers, and one for MEP engineers.

In those webinars, we’ll show how you can generate 2D documentation from 3D models better, faster, and easier in Revit using Smart Documentation in each of those disciplines.

AGACAD launches all-embracing Revit documentation toolset

PRESS RELEASE – Vilnius, 6 June 2022 

AGACAD, the developer of advanced technologies for building information modelling and management, is proud to introduce the first comprehensive BIM software for simplifying and automating the preparation of documents and drawings from Autodesk Revit models.

The new “Smart Documentation” toolset is the latest addition to AGACAD’s popular range of Revit productivity plugins and BIM solutions. It is intended for architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, prefabricators and everyone in the building industry with responsibility for documentation.  

“In fabrication and construction, everything hinges on the documentation. Building designers above all need to create drawings, schedules and so on. Most do so inefficiently, adding views and annotations one by one, losing a lot of time and risking errors.
We developed Smart Documentation to fill the project documentation gaps in Revit, generating content quickly and accurately, at times replacing hours of drafting with just a few clicks,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the Managing Director of AGACAD.

Quickly generate & control Revit project documentation [WEBINAR]

Throughout the years we’ve been optimizing BIM workflows, one thing has not changed. 2D documentation and shop drawings are the final results that building designers and manufacturers need to put out for the prefabrication and construction processes to move forward.

As BIM becomes an integral part of the AEC industry and workflows quickly adapt to it, we still need to produce many documents and detailed drawings, whether plans, sections, elevations and other project data.

Communication in the industry still hinges on documentation and its precision.
