Wood Framing Suite Overview
Integrated BIM tools for Revit® users for timber framed building design and construction
Wood Framing Suite gives a better way to design main structures of timber framed buildings. This powerful and flexible BIM software lets Revit® users design multi-layer timber-frame walls, floors and roofs. That includes prefabricated panels, rafters and trusses. Plus it generates views with automatic dimensions for wall panels or segments as well as accurate bills of materials and shop drawings. So quality production and accurate assembly on site are ensured.
Advanced automation and built-in best practices help BIM professionals make optimal choices, move faster, and avoid errors at every stage – from design and documentation to fabrication and construction. With our Revit-based wood framing software, it’s easy to quickly batch-add, modify or mark just the right elements or parameters, distribute hardware and fastener details, manage openings and connections, and find clashes. Frames dynamically update and adapt if modifications are made, ensuring that shop drawings and cut lists are always accurate.

PRESS RELEASE – Vilnius, 4 February 2020
AGACAD Wood Framing Suite makes your job in Revit much simpler, faster and less stressful.
Whether you’re designing single-story residential or multi-story commercial buildings, Wood Framing Suite delivers accurate and efficient modeling in Revit. The Multi-Framing feature for copying and updating framing elements and documentation for identical walls, floors and roofs radically reduces the time needed to model large-scale projects. Analytical lines of individual panel frames are inter-connected and aligned in the same plane, so they can be exported to structural analysis software for further full-scale analysis.
Coordination of BIM teams is greatly enhanced by integrating WF Suite with the Cut Opening BIM Solution, which identifies structural and engineering clashes throughout your Revit® model and creates openings with fire safety components for all MEP services and building structures at the relevant intersections.
Frames created with WF Suite may be exported for production to a WEINMANN, Randek or various other CNC machines or CAD/CAM production lines. Optional CNC export is good for workflow integration, eliminates duplicate work and reduces room for error.

Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2020, 2019, 2018
Automate wood framing of walls in Revit® projects using BIM solution Wood Framing Wall+. Being powerful, flexible, and easy to use, it helps you make optimal choices, move much faster, and avoid errors at every BIM stage – from design and documentation to wall segment fabrication and construction.
Automate wood framing of floors in Revit® projects using Wood Framing Floor+. It helps you make better decisions, move much faster and avoid errors at every BIM stage – from design and documentation to segment fabrication and construction.
Floor Panel Layout
Take the architect’s designed floor and automate panel layout planning. The software Floor Panel Layout draws symbolic lines to indicate the future panels according to predefined rules. Then it creates real Revit® floor panels.
Roof Panel Layout
Plan roof panels easily and split them into segments for prefabrication which can be used in the roof framing process.
for prefabricated panels
Automate wood framing work with prefabricated roofs in Revit® projects.
for rafter structures
Automate wood framing work with rafter roofs from design and documentation to roof segment fabrication and construction.
Generate wood truss systems instantly, perform structural analysis, and auto-generate shop drawings tailored to your standards. Functions are versatile, parameters are easy to control, and changes occur in real time.
A powerful add-on for managing walls in Revit®, letting you rapidly disassemble layers into different wall types, fully control joins and gap distances, split walls into separate panels with predefined settings, insert gravity points, and manage information with an export-to-Excel feature.
Add any number of face-specific intelligent details – which adapt to host-element changes – throughout BIM models.
Create openings with fire safety components throughout a Revit® model where ducts, pipes, cable trays and conduits intersect with walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, beams and columns. BIM solution Cut Opening creates openings with special holding details for structural beams.
Renumber Revit® elements just the way you want, detect and renumber grids, determine swing direction and orientation (and add them as properties), recalculate shared coordinates, and much more.
