FRAMECAD Structure offers Revit & BIM Software Integration

What’s new in this release?

FRAMECAD® Structure offers Revit & other BIM Software Integration and plenty more new features!

By Developing BIM compatibility functions (IFC and ACSI (SAT) file formats ), the New FRAMECAD® Structure Release offers a direct interface developed to Revit and other BIM software such as Archicad, Vector Works, Solid Works, TEKLA and many CAD packages.

This will help our customers facilitate and integrate the FRAMECAD design into the design and build process. Any model can now be handed from FRAMECAD® Structure to the Revit or BIM model as controlled by the main contractor and owner/operator.  From there each professional involved in the design and build process adds discipline-specific data to the single shared model. Thus enabling the entire process to be completed faster, lower construction costs and reduce the possibilities of rework due to design oversights.

With FRAMECAD® Structure latest release,  the design system and the sharing of building information via BIM becomes easier, faster, more integrated and safer. On some cold formed steel projects this could reduce steel detailing time by up to 80%.
