Wood Framing Truss+ RT Overview
Full-Power Wood Truss Creator for Revit®
Wood Framing Truss+ RT gives Revit® users a single robust platform to 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. It’s a potent BIM workflow booster: no more drafting – just design and decide.
Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2020, 2019, 2018
- Build full truss systems in one go with the configurable 3D grid (escaping the limited and time-consuming nature of standard Revit® truss family insertion)
- Easily assess options – such as wooden truss framing – in economic, structural or systemic terms, to make the best decisions
- Create new parametric uniquely shaped truss families based on model lines and roofs for immediate use in your projects
- Freely revise your Revit® model; update and adapt truss systems
- Get real-time take-offs and views, automatic creation of shop drawings and cut lists, and easy export to CNC machines
Selected additional features of Wood Framing Truss+ RT:
Initial static structural analysis in Revit® (no need to transfer
Easy creation and adjustment of shop drawing templates
Automatic coping, sorting and tagging of truss members;
Built-in clash detection; also works well with Cut Opening
Quick setup, user-friendly interface with intuitive mouse-driven menus
Truss-framing library can be edited and expanded; templates
Configurations save as templates for future reuse with just one
Optional CNC output (Hundegger, Randek, Weinmann, …) to joinery machines and multi panels production lines enables your model data to be automatically exported to manufacturing
Wood and Metal Framing Truss+ have been augmented with floor trusses!

- Speed and Time Saving. Truss+ RT build truss systems in seconds, changes are controlled by a click of a mouse, and all the neat functions that will help in day-to-day work a lot. Of course, it will also save a lot of money.
- Easy Control Process. All actions of possible parameter changes are showed in the single “Modify Families” dialog window. New, deleted or renamed parameters are showed in different colors.
- Error Prevention. All modifications happen in real time which allows you to avoid mistakes and easily control all processes of family parameter changes.
- Design Evaluation. Evaluate your truss design in any point of view you want. Economical, structural, system based, etc. evaluation is easy and quick with Truss+ RT.
- Structural analysis of your trusses. No need to send your model anywhere. Design your trusses and evaluate your designs straight away with Autodesk Revit® extensions. Quickly make design considerations.
- Completeness. Everything is in one place: system development, its evaluation and documentation. Just jump right into decision making.
- It is all about time saving. Truss+ RT is built for professionals by professionals. Little helpers in design let you save uncountable amounts of time by reducing button clicks and mistakes you can make.
- Workshop drawings one click away. Built in Truss+ RT capability to create workshop drawings by selected truss helps designers to forget the worries of document drafting. Using templates it is done in seconds.
