How to change a window/door U-value

The U-value and other analytical properties for windows and doors in Revit are set by default and come from the ASHRAE standard. Sometimes, though, you need different U-values for heating load calculations. So, how do you change these hardcoded values?

You can find these constructions on your computer: C:Program FilesAutodeskRevit 2018en-USConstructions.xml

Be aware that the “Construction.xml” file is different for different Revit Language Packages. So just make sure you modify the right one.

Working with Autodesk® Revit® MEP in AGACAD‘s Way

AGA CAD is a software developer that is looking for the fastest and the most convenient way to work in Autodesk® Revit®. AGA CAD software is specialized in various fields like: architecture, structure, MEP, analysis, etc. This time I want to tell about MEP part of Revit.

AGA CAD is creating professional BIM solutions for MEP engineers that work with Autodesk Revit. I can count over 10 products that can help MEP engineers in their everyday workflow. Our main goal is to find the weakest points in Revit and develop the solution that will increase work productivity in such cases. Some of these solutions can increase work productivity but some of them can open new features that even Revit does not have.

In this article I will list some of AGA CAD’s MEP created solutions:Read more »

Switch from AGACAD Software SLM to NLM Licensing at Any Time

AGACAD offers both network and standalone license types of software licenses. Software with standalone licensing allows users to install the software on a single workstation (1 license = 1 computer) without the need to be connected to a company network.

Network licensing helps software user to ensure his/her own access to the right product at the right time, and it enables easy and efficient control of software use. Another customer’s benefit – the only fixed annual fee (valid for 12 months) is applied for a company but not per license.

Network license can be installed on as many computers as desired; however, at any one time, only the maximum number of computers, which is specified in the licenses, can run the software. The Network License Manager (NLM), installed on one or more servers, controls the distribution of particular product licenses to the users.

Based on our experience, AGACAD customers need to have the most effective licensing model to fit their operation rules. Therefore we improved the licensing models. Now AGACAD provides NLM Annual Service that enables current SLM licenses’ migration to NLM licenses and vice versa.Read more »
