Custom marks for rebar 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.

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.

How to launch AGACAD’s Revit add-ons via Dynamo

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!

How to renumber precast or other type walls by model line quickly in Revit [WORKFLOW]

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.

How can you automatically number grids, annotate door swing, sort elements & more in Revit?

If you use Revit every day, you probably face the stress of spending a lot of time on repetitive tasks. Every project has a certain workflow that has to be followed containing unavoidable tasks. Although Revit itself has many features that optimize your work, it doesn’t fill all the gaps. Repetitive manual tasks still consume your time, time that could otherwise be spent creating additional project value.

But there are ways to automate many tasks and accelerate your work.

More flexible and advanced options for structural precast element design in Revit

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.

How to automatically number & mark Revit elements [WEBINAR]

Working on building projects requires a lot of attention to the details and precisely organized technical information. A lot of time is spent on repetitive tasks to sort, number, and mark dozens of elements by position, technical specification, function, and other criteria.

The architect marks door elements by type and fire classification; the structural engineer sorts and numbers beams by length and structural capacity; the manufacturer creates a schedule with all the brackets and studs sorted by type and other parameters. All of that takes many hours to do.

Although Autodesk® Revit® itself has a lot of features to manage projects and generate the requisite data and documents, it still takes up quite a lot of time to sort and mark elements. Architects and engineers who use Revit encounter issues like those below frequently. Can you relate?

Wood/Metal Framing for Revit: The most significant enhancements of 2020

During the past year, we implemented over 40 updates to our Wood Framing and Metal Framing BIM software for designing walls, floors, and roofs of prefabricated timber and light-gauge steel-framed buildings in Revit®.

These updates include new features, enhanced sample families, and requests made by clients that benefit many of our users. In the spirit of sharing BIM advances, we walk through over 30 of them now in the hopes that this summary will be of use to not only current users but also Revit users generally and those who may be considering making the switch over to a BIM workflow for framing design.

We’ve put a lot of work into our Wood Framing and Metal Framing BIM software over the past year to make sure it continues advancing to meet the needs of architects and structural engineers around the world. Click a topic in the list below to auto-scroll down for more about it.

By the way, we also hosted this webinar in June 2021 that goes over most of the features enumerated below.
