Easily model and document post-and-beam framing structures and trusses in Autodesk® Revit®. This state-of-the-art BIM software enables quick design and documentation for quality production and accurate assembly – to meet project requirements and exceed client expectations.

Holistic processes

Design & production of any heavy timber project with a high-LOD BIM model (digital twin).

Vast time savings

Fast, accurate modeling & updating of building modules & components with project-wide parameters for highly detailed projects.

Precise deliverables

Accurate BIM data means accurate material quantities, part lists & schedules.
