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!

New user interface for Wood Framing CLT Revit add-on coming soon

The user interface of our Wood Framing CLT add-on for Revit is going to be enhanced within the next few weeks! The commands will be collected into a single ribbon and rearranged to make the workflow more intuitive and the UI overall easier to use.

This major new release is part of our ongoing quest to help optimize your work and reduce time spent on manual Revit tasks.

As you can see in the before-and-after image below, it was previously necessary to open separate Revit tools – like Wall+, Floor+, Roof+, Smart Connections, etc. – to access the functionality you needed.

With the new release, that is no longer the case. All functions are now available from a single compact ribbon, conveniently arranged according to the recommended workflow.

New power for CLT design automation in Revit [WEBINAR]

Cross-laminated timber is a burgeoning material for constructing sustainable buildings. Sustainability, though, is not only about the use of appropriate building materials – it’s also about sustainable processes. The key, therefore, is to make the design process as efficient as possible.

New feature of Wood/Metal Framing suites makes tagging elements in Revit views faster

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.

Where is Smart Tags?

New feature for Smart Dimensions: Dimension to nearest Revit element

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.
