For highly accurate and consistent drawings and documentation. The 3D-modeling automation in this advanced BIM software lets you quickly and precisely detail architectural, structural, and MEP elements throughout a Revit project at the LOD 400 level.

Boosts productivity of detail work

Batch-inserts connections of all types exactly where needed based on the rules you set.

Ensures consistency throughout projects

Recognizes connections and automatically places the relevant elements as defined in parameters.

Avoids possible errors as models change

Connection details adjust as elements are added or removed or as their properties are modified.

Quickly inserts all types of connections into walls, beams, columns, floors and structural framing.

Simplifies the modeling process by automating manual tasks. Enables fast, easy, accurate LOD 400 modeling, especially when changes have to be made to a model. Less manual work means more time to create value in other areas of project design.

Use host element parameters to make smart details that adapt to host length, thickness, height, etc.
