Wood/Metal Framing in Revit: New Version, New Features

In this free 30-minute webinar on February 18th, we’ll walk through the latest updates that have been made in the new version of our Wood Framing and Metal Framing BIM Solutions for Revit.

The latest version of our timber and steel framing software incorporates several client requests. Among the new features that have been developed are: independent control of top and bottom cripples, ability to manipulate top and bottom plates in wall-to-wall connections, increased functionality for modifying sheathing and paneling, some dimensioning options, and more.

We relish the opportunity to improve our BIM tools to meet the needs of framing professionals the world over. It’s how we build BIM together.

Our Wood Framing and Metal Framing BIM Solutions make your job in Autodesk Revit much simpler, much less stressful, and way faster. It’s easy to distribute hardware and fastener details, manage openings and connections, find clashes, and add, modify, or mark just the right elements or parameters en masse.
