Wood Framing Rafter+ Overview

Wood Rafter Systems in Revit® for Any Geometry

Wood Framing Rafter+ lets you quickly create full rafter systems in Revit® models for timber frame roofs of any shape or complexity. Custom-framing functions and versatile schedule generation further accelerate BIM workflow. No more drafting – you just design and decide.

Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2017, 2018, 2019

  • Frame an entire roof based on its 3D model including hip/valley rafters, ridges, girders, collars, battens, horizontal beams, sleepers, trimmers, etc.
  • Auto-detect and frame roof openings; cope ends of existing beams
  • Freely revise your Revit® model; update and adapt rafters and beam systems
  • Get real-time take-offs and auto-sorting

Selected additional Wood Framing Rafter+ features:

Revit app Rafter+ easily creates complex wood framing geometry and places dormers | tools4revit Easy control of vertical distance of collar and
girder beams

control of birdsmouth joint parameters, cutting of existing rafters

Extension/trimming of beams, splitting/recreation of beam systems

Frame elements are easily grouped, sorted and renumbered

static analysis in Revit or export analytic model to structural analysis

All templates and rules fully customizable; popular schedule
templates included

Configurations save as templates for future reuse with just one

Built-in clash detection; works well with Cut Opening

User-friendly interface with intuitive mouse-driven menus
and options

Optional CNC output (Hundegger, Randek, Weinmann, …) to joinery machines and multi panels production lines enables your model data to be automatically exported to manufacturing
