MWF Pro Wall Special Features

This unique features also has the capability to resolve clashes by automatically creating openings where required, and framing the openings (walls only) based on user defined rules. MWF Clash Detection checks for clashes across all linked software modules.

Wall Frame to Wall Frame Joint Creation Interface

MWF allows users to define framing at the intersection point of multiple walls and then automatically apply the same framing joint definition everywhere in the model where the same conditions apply.

Drawing Production Engine

The new drawing production engine improves workflow and wall cleanup efficiency. Users can now define whole drawing templates, including number of views as well as scale and location on the drawing.  Dimensioning styles can be defined by section, and users can insert data in tabular format, such as a table of materials. Once a template is created, users can apply the template to many walls at once by highlighting the walls in the model.  The new Drawing production engine will have a significant impact on the drawing production process in terms of both speed and quality control, and consistency.
