VILNIUS, Lithuania, Oct 10, 2018 – AGACAD Ltd, a developer of industry-focused technologies for building information modeling and management, is pleased to announce that it has become one of the first architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry partners of Autodesk Inc., the maker of Revit, the world’s leading software platform for BIM.
“This is new recognition of the value that AGACAD’s add-on solutions provide – the time, money and stress that they save – for Revit users all over the world by automating much of their work and adding powerful new functionality for specific industries, regions and firms. We look forward to engaging even more with Autodesk to address the ever-evolving real-life needs of BIM professionals,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the CEO of AGACAD.
AEC Industry Partners are trusted technology providers that Autodesk is selecting for their discipline-specific solutions which complement its own offerings. Partners build on top of Autodesk’s BIM and cloud platforms to enable customers to work more efficiently, deliver better designs, and reduce waste. The designation of AEC Industry Partners is part of a strategy for bringing new and transformational technologies into industry workflows.
“As project complexity increases and project teams become more geographically dispersed, structural professionals must collaborate in new, more innovative ways. With AGACAD developing solutions on top of Revit, they are enabling our customers to use BIM as an engineering and collaboration platform and not just a modeling and documentation tool,” says Michael Gustafson, Autodesk’s industry strategy manager for structural engineering.
AGACAD’s Precast Concrete suite, for the detailed modeling of precast walls, floors and columns in Revit, is one of the first solutions to be featured by Autodesk under the new partnership arrangement. The package is helping to make Revit the environment of choice for BIM precast work.
“We see partners like AGACAD as being critical to helping our engineering customers deliver BIM-based services in a more productive way. We also know that precast detailing and production are highly customized to a precast producer or factory. Partners like AGACAD are able to provide the needed automation and customization for factories to scale up their businesses more quickly,” Michael Gustafson of Autodesk says.
Likely to be featured next, Mr. Aksomitas says, is AGACAD’s comprehensive Wood Framing software, which automates the design-to-detail process for timber elements, with integrated structural analysis, estimation, documentation, shop deliverables and export to CAD/CAM production.
AGACAD, based in the Baltic nation of Lithuania, a tech-savvy EU economy and IT-service hub, is the developer of the world’s widest range of true BIM software for Revit professionals. Its solutions – with 12,000+ users in 130 countries – share top practitioners’ insights and automate best practices in a spirit of ‘Building BIM Together’. The current R&D focus of the company is the efficient management of building information.
