Modeling

Design prefabricated timber frame systems using included families & automated tools.

Multilayer framing of wooden walls, floors & roofs based on user-defined rules

Saves time, reduces errors by automating the creation of multi-layered timber frame structures. Modeling is 10x faster than in standard Revit, as your predefined custom rules (based on project-specific requirements) automatically distribute all framing elements and avoid repetitive tasks.

Builds full truss systems in one go

Escape the limitations of truss family insertion in standard Revit. Simplify your modeling process by creating truss systems and custom truss families automatically. Save time and avoid errors when building full truss systems by applying the configurable 3D grid.

Frames multi-story buildings 10x faster than the standard Revit interface

The Multi-framing and Framing in Groups features greatly increase framing speed for groups of identical elements. In large-scale projects, vast amounts of time can be saved by creating, editing and updating multiple building modules or components simultaneously.

Splits sheathing/paneling into segments by predefined rules

Quickly create sheathing or paneling by avoiding repetitive tasks in building design. Automation saves you lots of time while also avoiding mistakes.

Distributes connections for multiple elements at once based on your predefined rules

Insert hundreds of elements into your project with just a few clicks. Ensures fast, accurate modeling of highly detailed projects, and makes it easy to follow project changes.

Generate & control opening elements in Revit models

Generate & control opening elements in Revit models

Easy clash detection to support synthesis of the overall frame. Better interdisciplinary design coordination means better communication and greater accuracy.

Create all log cabin elements. Number, group & pack them.

Create all log cabin elements. Number, group & pack them.

Save time and reduce errors by automating log walls using the 'Build Log Walls' feature, which eliminates time-consuming, repetitive tasks in designing cabins.

Quickly select elements according to your predefined rules

Quickly select elements according to your predefined rules

Reduce the time cost of finding & selecting specific elements for tasks (like automatically creating drawings, adding structural connections, etc.).

Split wall, floors and roofs into panels based on architectural, structural and logistical requirements

Split wall, floors and roofs into panels based on architectural, structural and logistical requirements

With elements split in just the right spot and sorted by size, framing and panel assembly can be completed much faster.

Automated updates and modifications

Automatically update framing according to project changes at any design stage.

Changes made to your model? Framing automatically updates

Swiftly copes with modifications & provides accurate framing updates, reducing the time needed for double checking.

Adds or modifies additional framing elements (studs, blocking, bracing, etc.)

Adds or modifies additional framing elements (studs, blocking, bracing, etc.)

Provides greater flexibility & customization in creating frames & structures in building design, empowering you to create unique designs that may not be possible with standard framing tools.

Modifies frame of selected wall, floor or roof according to your custom settings

Modifies frame of selected wall, floor or roof according to your custom settings

Make quick changes in unique situations, handle sudden modifications efficiently. The Modify Frame feature saves designers' and architects' valuable time, helping them stay on schedule.

Easy to edit individual elements

Easy to edit individual elements

Create unique frames by using Edit Elements feature to align, trim, cut, move, split, etc.

Documentation

Quickly create all desired views of structural framing, schedules & shop drawings for timber building fabrication & construction.

Get shop drawings & accurate material quantities, part lists & schedules

Avoid errors & tedious tasks by automatically creating views, tags, schedules, dimensions, titleblocks & sheets for structural framing & structural connection elements.

Create isolated or in-context element views – without having to create assemblies

Work more flexibly in 3D views. Quickly create element views with predefined view templates, dimensions & tags. Easily get sections & elevation drawings for any selected building element.

Place views on sheets automatically according to your template

Saving time in the 2D documentation process means you can focus on value-adding tasks.

Sort & renumber Revit elements automatically

Sort & renumber Revit elements automatically

Efficiently monitor, edit & compose project-wide parameters without having to manually input data. Renumber elements in seconds according to your configuration settings that, once created, can be used in all future projects. Greatly enhances workflows by saving time and adding clarity to the project.

Dimension elements of multiple categories at once

Dimension elements of multiple categories at once

Lots of time can be saved by creating detailed shop drawings wherein every element is dimensioned to spec according to your predefined custom rules (which can be saved for future use). Thousands of possibilities are at your fingertips to insert dimensions automatically – and move them out of the way if they are obstructed by other text or values.

Tag elements of multiple categories

Tag elements of multiple categories

Automated tags save time in creating detailed, tidy, up-to-date shop drawings. Dramatically extends native Revit tagging functionality by allowing you to tag many elements at once – and adjust their tags in the drawing.

Create assemblies with Sheet Template

Create assemblies with Sheet Template

Streamlines documentation for timber frames, saving time & reducing errors – both now & down the road.
