Interested in finding a framing solution that you can use in Autodesk® Revit® projects, confident that it will keep up with and bring lasting value to your business years into the future? One that covers all the bases, from modeling and documentation to CNC export and panel logistics? Then you’ve probably found what you’re looking for.
Tune in to our free webinar on October 6th. You’ll get a high-level view of the typical (a.k.a. time-saving and cost-slashing) workflows used with our Wood Framing Wall / Floor / Roof applications for Revit, as well as the accompanying Wood Framing CNC Exporters and Panel Packer add-on.
Additionally, our BIM expert will show what can be done using our Wood Framing CLT, Wood Framing SIPS, and Wood Framing OAK solutions. Along with the results you can achieve, you’ll also see the new Wood Framing sample project that’s available for free download. A veritable timber framing smörgåsbord awaits you during this webinar. Don’t miss out!
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.
As we recently announced, our Wood Framing CLT add-in for Revit is available for the first time ever as a free trial.
To make using the software as smooth as possible, we developed an improved workflow for designing CLT walls, roofs, and floors. And we’ll be releasing a series of tutorials to make it even easier to follow along.
Without further ado, here’s the first tutorial. Stay tuned for subsequent CLT videos!
As you may already know, the user interface of our Wood Framing CLT add-on for Revit was recently enhanced to make the workflow more intuitive and the UI overall easier to use.
What you may not know is that we are now making Wood Framing CLT available to trial for free!
That being the case, we want to make it as simple as possible for you to try out our CLT solution on your own. In this blog post, I’ll go through the basic steps to follow so that your use of the software is as hassle-free as possible.
Note: Since these instructions are meant to simplify testing of Wood Framing CLT, I have used our sample configurations and families throughout.
Just keep in mind that all these sample rules can be modified to your own needs and standards.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
