Multi-Framing with Model Groups in Revit [WEBINAR]

Would you like to speed up the framing, drawing, and scheduling process for your wood- and metal-framed designs in Revit? Model groups and multi-framing can bring you major time-savings. See how in our free 30-minute webinar on March 18th.

Intended for AEC professionals who design timber walls, roofs, or floors in Revit, the focus of this webinar will be on placing elements into groups and creating building modules. We’ll also show how framing and sheathing for standalone building elements can be produced simultaneously using the multi-framing function in our Wood Framing design software. This is a good chance for architects, designers, and structural engineers to catch up with the latest advances in the timber framing industry and see how the processes of framing, drawing, and scheduling can be optimized.

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, architects, engineers, BIM managers, and out-of-box Revit users.

Wood & Metal Framing in Revit: 5 New Features

The latest release of our Wood Framing and Metal Framing BIM Solutions includes five useful new features for Revit users. Our thanks go out to those BIM and Revit experts with whom we’ve been in contact to bring these to fruition. Together, we’re building BIM up and making it better for the good of the industry.

Let’s take a look at each of the updates.

Framing in Groups

This feature lets you frame walls in groups that may be replicated and mirrored throughout a project. Needless to say, it can save architects and designers copious amounts of time, especially with large framing projects in Revit.

Wood & Metal Framing Wall software for Revit: Framing in Groups [New Feature]

We‘ve updated our Wood Framing Wall and Metal Framing Wall BIM Solutions for Revit with an important new feature called Framing in Groups. This major enhancement comes from working with top experts in the framing design industry and will especially benefit Revit users who work with large projects or projects comprising mirrored building parts. In the spirit of sharing BIM advances, we bring it to you now.

The Framing in Groups command allows you to frame walls in groups, a valueable feature because walls that are grouped may be used to repeat and also mirror framings many times throughout a project. Incorporating this into the framing workflow has the potential to save architects and designers a lot of time.

Please note that this update to our framing software is part of the final release for Revit 2019. Our programmers are turning their attention to the Revit 2020 (and 2021 and upcoming 2022) version, which means that the 2019 version of our software will be no longer be supported.
