    Modelling wood construction

    What is the best way to modelling wood construction in Revit architecture 2011. It is generally walls I'm talking about. How does one make a wodden frame, so that they can also be viewed on a 3D view.

    Thanks in advance for your reply

    Hi Oli, and welcome to the Forum.

    If you are on subscription? You can download the Revit Extensions from the Autodesk Subscription Center, and use the "Wall Framing Extension"

      Interesting. Is there any similar tool for metal studs framing? Can this one be used for that, too?

        My company has been looking into MDF. Does anyone have any thoughts on MDF versus this wall framing extension? Any experiences?

          It looks like you can set it up to use your own families. I bet you can use it for metal stud framing too.

            We have a client who is using the MWF software from StructSoft to create steel framed buildings. The program creates assembly drawings as drafting views and will even export information out to a CNC machine which they are doing to pre assemble walls in their workshops they end up trucking out to the website. Pretty cool stuff.

              I stumbled across this last week, haven't had a chance to try it, we normally don't go to this level of detail, but it would be nice to show in 3d occasionally.

              If anyone has used it I would like to hear how it worked out.

                You can indeed set it up with your own families. If memory serves me well you can apply different profiles (as the framing is constructed with sweeps).
                For me, it had some setbacks in the area of flexibility and join conditions and stuff.
                An OOTB option is to use Curtain Walls and embed them into your typical wall. You can model everything with this too. Especially if it's not an every day job but just occasionally this will work too. Here too, it's possible to create mullions like similar to metal studs.

                  According to the few tests I made, you should be able to deal with metal studs, but you should use a trick with the material of the elements. I think REX looks for wood material only, so you would cheat a little to make it look like metal. And I would be carefull with the profiles, cause profiles for wood pieces are more simple than for metal stud, so joints won't be correct I guess. Maybe it will be enhanced in 2012?
