New Wood/Metal Framing Version: Framing in Groups, Part Assembly Creation for All Framing Layers, Floor and Roof Dimensions and more

The newest Wood/Metal Framing version for Revit has been released, bringing the capability of working faster within big projects and improving users’ daily framing and dimensioning routine!

Note to Current Users: be sure to download the latest updates by clicking the red dot in the TOOLS4BIM Dock, and start benefitting from these new features today!

Our team at AGACAD continually strives to make work easier for designers of framed buildings. In order to address the growing needs and popular requests from our user community, we are pleased to announce the latest updates for our Wood and Metal Framing products.

These enhancements make our framing tools for timber and steel more flexible and enable you to have more control over frame design. As a result, you’ll be able to save time and avoid workarounds, both of which are key components of reducing stress when it comes to putting BIM into practice.

Released for Revit versions 2022, 2021, 2020 & 2019

While we usually only support the three latest Revit versions, in this release we have exceptionally provided an update for 2019 because we still have clients on 2019 for whom these features are important.

Without further ado, check out the latest major features described below and, again, make sure to download these updates via the TOOLS4BIM Dock. A list of minor improvements and bug fixes is included at bottom.
