Revit® Turbocharger for Timber Frame Floors
Wood Framing Floor+ automates wood framing work with floors in Revit® projects. It’s powerful, flexible and easy to use. It helps you make better decisions, move much faster and avoid errors at every BIM stage – from design and documentation to segment fabrication and construction.
Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2022, 2021, 2020
- Auto-generate detailed multilayer floor framing for your Revit model using predefined or custom rules and templates
- Frame multi-story houses 10 times faster than using standard Revit interface
- Easily control supporting structure, including battens and flooring; distribute details, service holes and more
- Automate sheathing layouts
- Freely revise your Revit model by easily selecting the elements and properties you want to modify
- Find structural and engineering clashes; cut and frame openings according to predefined rules
- Easily prepare shop drawings and cut lists, with all required views, where elements are dimensioned, sorted, tagged, scheduled, and mass calculated
- Optional export to any CNC machines and CAD/CAM production lines, such as WEINMANN, Randek, etc.
- Floor frames update and adapt according to any changes
- Perform structural analyses without leaving Revit, or export your wood frames to external analysis software at any stage of design process
Selected additional Wood Framing Floor+ features:
• Automated modeling of floor’s wood framing members including joists, battens, bridging, blockings, rims, noggings, and more.
• Fully scalable: from simple structures to complex multi-level buildings with irregular floor shapes.
• Easily transfer framing elements between same groups or identical floors in different levels of buildings by predefining which elements the building designer is going to affect: all floors from the same model group, from the instance model group, or selected floor should be unique in the building.
• Framing types easily linked with floor types; can be preset for bearing or non-bearing floors.
• Complex multi-layer floor framing: unlimited number of layers.
• Automated details (support clips, hangers, web stiffeners, service holes, etc.) on bridgings, blockings and rim joists.
• Alignment of joists across floor segments and between floors and walls.
• Floor frame can be modified any time and supplemented with additional members.
• Sheathing layouts can be easily generated and split by existing joists.
• Built-in clash detection between structural and engineering objects; automated floor openings and flexible framing around it.
• Library with main types of floor framing can be edited and expanded.
• Automatic sorting, tagging, dimensioning, and scheduling (including mass) of all frames and sheathing layouts.
• Shop drawing views and schedules are added automatically to sheets according to user’s predefined template.
• All templates and rules are fully customizable; framing sheathing and shop drawing configurations can be saved
• Easy setup, user-friendly interface with intuitive mouse-driven options.
• Optional CNC output (Hundegger, Randek, Weinmann, …) to joinery machines and multi-panel production lines enables your model data to be automatically exported to manufacturing.
