Direct export of metal multi-layer wall, floor, and roof frames & trusses from Revit®
Howick 4200, Howick CNC Configuration, and Howick CNC Configuration CSV2. These generate CSV extension files readable by Howick machines for wall, floor, and roof frames as well as trusses.
The difference between the Howick 4200 and Howick CNC Configuration is in the coding. For example, Howick CNC configuration uses the DIMPLE command whereas the 4200 uses the FLANGE1 command. CSV2 utilizes a different coding format that writes the coordinates of beam corners.
Howick uses a C+C framing system, including C+C Chamfered.
The Howick CNC Exporter has to be used with AGACAD’s Metal Framing Suite, which creates the framing elements with all the necessary geometry and information data inside the Revit project. The Exporter converts that data into a CNC-machine-readable format. This file can be opened and viewed using a viewer and later pushed to a production line.
