During the past year, we made over 40 updates to our Wood Framing and Metal Framing BIM software for designing walls, floors, and roofs in Revit®. We’ll go through the most significant ones in this free 30-minute webinar on June 3rd.
Meeting the needs of framing professionals around the world drives us to continually improve our BIM tools. It’s how we build BIM together. The enhancements you’ll see in this webinar include new features, enhanced sample families, and requests made by clients that bring benefits to a large part of our user base who design prefabricated timber and light-gauge steel-framed buildings.
Although we hosted webinars as features were released during the course of 2020, we’re pulling it all together in this one so that you can have the rundown in one convenient place.
The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you. Content will especially be of interest to designers of wood-framed buildings or LGS-framed buildings, architects, engineers, BIM managers, and out-of-box Revit users.

Join our free 30-minute webinar on July 1st for an advanced demonstration of framing walls, floors, and roofs in Revit, including how to generate shop drawings and export to CAD/CAM production lines. Our powerful Wood Framing BIM software for total-precision framing of timber constructions in Revit has been continually improved based on the input of framing professionals all around the world, and now we invite you to see how to use it to quickly frame single- and multi-layer walls, floors, and roofs for prefabrication and on-site construction.
See the best practices for daily use of our Wood Framing Suite tools and get familiar with the user interface and a typical workflow for framing, generating schedules and cut lists, and exporting data to CNC. Our Wood Framing tools can also be applied to framing buildings with CLT panels, SIPS, or heavy timber post-and-beams.
Starting with simple Revit elements (walls, floors, roofs), the results you’ll see are multi-layered walls, floors, rafters, trusses, and roof panels fully framed for prefabrication or on-site construction. Additional layers of cladding, roofing, insulation, sheathing and paneling will also be added to the overall build up of load bearing and non-load bearing building components. All panels and structural members will be automatically sorted for subsequent shop ticket generation.
Intended for all timber construction industry professionals: architects, engineers, drafters, manufacturers, and builders – we invite you to sign up! The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.
This free 30-minute webinar on June 30th will be an expert-level tutorial about efficiently making openings for structural framing elements, doors, and windows in Revit® using our Cut Opening BIM Solution. Openings will be configured and created for beams of various shapes and sizes as well as for window and door openings, which will be transferred from the architectural model into the structural model.
The result you’ll see is a Revit structural file with an increased LOD due to the openings and placement of beam pockets. All walls will have openings corresponding to the sizes of doors and windows in the architectural model. Openings will be tagged to provide information about their size and elevation according to the level of your choice.
Structural engineers, architects, and BIM managers – we invite you to sign up. The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.
Topics to be covered:
Opening settings for beams (structural framing)
Generating openings and beam pockets
Controlling and modifying openings
Possible modifications to opening families
Openings for doors and windows
Our Cut Opening Revit extension is BIM software that automatically inserts penetration holes for MEP services, structural framing elements, doors and windows in Autodesk Revit. After processing interference check results, it creates proper openings wherever ducts, pipes, cable trays, or conduit intersect walls, floors, ceilings, roofs, beams, and columns and will insert fire safety components in structures that have a fire rating. Gives accurate bills of materials and builders work drawings. Works with linked files.
We hope to see you online!

This free 30-minute webinar on June 10th will be an expert-level introduction to designing heavy timber post and beam structures in Revit. Using our Wood Framing OAK software, it’s just a matter of figuring out a workflow and creating the required families to design your own custom structures because the tool automates the framing and documentation process for even the most complex and unique post and beam designs. And in this webinar, we’ll show some new sample families that have been made to complement the tool.
The result you’ll see is a project of massive timbers framed automatically in Revit. With this framing technology, all structural framing elements for walls, floors, and roofs will be distributed, as will structural connections for creating common cuts for oak frames. Shop drawings and cut lists will be auto-generated, including all required views wherein elements are dimensioned, sorted, tagged, and scheduled and mass calculated.
Architects, engineers, BIM managers, drafters, builders, manufacturers – we invite you to sign up for this webinar to see how to bring your post and beam design process to the next level of automation. The webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you.

Our CNC Exporters for Timber Frames automatically assemble all framing members per user definitions and send all necessary data and geometry to the machine or production line you’re running for efficient prefabrication of wood structures. We currently have CNC Exporters for machines manufactured by Weinmann, Randek, and Hundegger.
Exporters can easily be adapted to other CNC machines that read the same file extensions (for example, BTL is used worldwide). All exporters are customizable to fit users’ needs, and we’ll work one-on-one with you to make sure the final product performs seamlessly and accurately. Exactly the way you need.
Our CNC Exporters must be used in tandem with our Wood Framing BIM software that’s made for framing floors, walls, trusses, and rafter roofs in Revit. We’ve also got specialized solutions for framing CLT, SIPS, and heavy timber structures.
Advanced automation and built-in best practices help BIM professionals move fast, make optimal choices (particularly early in the design process), and avoid errors at every stage – from design and documentation to fabrication and construction. The respective CNC Exporter converts the framed model with all the information data and geometry inside the Revit project into a format readable by your CNC machine.
Learn more about each of our CNC Exporters for Timber Frames below.
In this free, 30-minute webinar on May 6th, we’ll go through how models of wood- or metal-framed constructions can be exported from Revit to various CNC-machine-readable formats and CAD/CAM automated production lines. We’ll talk about some of the most popular formats, their setup, possibilities, and usage. The webinar will cover regular framing, heavy timber, and panel (for example, CLT) exports.
The results you’ll see are several file format exports from some Revit models. Later, those files will be viewed in different production simulators or viewers that have been provided by machinery manufacturers. Also, we’ll compare and contrast exported data with the information in the Revit models.
Engineers, BIM Managers, drafters, builders, and especially manufacturers, we hope you’ll join in this free webinar. It’s for all AEC industry professionals involved in designing or manufacturing small- and large-scale buildings in which various timber and/or LGS framing technologies are used. The webinar will be held twice, so please register below for the session that’s more convenient for you.
