Ventilated Facades in Revit [WEBINAR]

This free 30-minute webinar on April 30th will be about designing detailed, multi-story ventilated facade systems in Autodesk® Revit. What you’ll see is a BIM-to-Field workflow using our Ventilated Facades BIM software to efficiently design highly-detailed elements. See how to batch-insert hundreds of details throughout a Revit model and generate fabrication information (shop drawings and cut lists) with the necessary views, schedules, and drawings.

AEC industry professionals involved in the design or prefabrication of facades: engineers, designers, BIM coordinators, and managers at companies that design or manufacture facades for commercial, residential, or industrial (mainly residential) buildings – we invite you to sign up below to see how you might bring your facade 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.

Learn how to:

  • prepare multi-story walls and their layers
  • create detailed multi-layer light gauge/metal framing
  • configure structural, opening, and complex L or T connections
  • find structural and engineering clashes, and cut and frame openings accordingly
  • distribute details, brackets, insulation fasteners
  • set
    numbering configurations and then number all elements

  • generate
    material schedules and shop drawings with automated dimensions and tags

    Our software for designing ventilated facades in Autodesk® Revit® simplifies the process of framing architectural ventilated facades. Instantly insert details like hangers, fixings, and brackets by the batch-load throughout your model based on your predefined rules to get high-quality framing model at the required LOD. Easily mark elements in your project according to property and location. Real-time full-project updates ensure accurate bills of materials and builders work drawings. And fabrication information can be generated automatically with the views, schedules, and drawings you need. All that ensures quality production and accurate assembly on site.

    We hope to see you online!
