MWF CNC Modules
Turn Revit into a powerful manufacturing tool. Export your wall, floor and truss information directly into a format readable by your company’s light gauge roll former or automated wood saw. Many operations are supported, including multiple knock-outs, notching, bird’s mouth cuts, hole cuts, rafter tails and member labels. MWF CNC modules now support: AMS Controls, Beck Automation, Howick, Hundegger, Knudson, Studmesiter, Pinnacle and Weinmann. We also support standard BTL format and WUP format for large panel building machines. If your roll former, automated saw or panelizing machine is not listed, feel free to contact us regarding custom outputs.
FREE Revit Apps
Add to your Revit® experience with StrucSoft Solutions’ time-saving free applications.
Splits one or multiple structural or architectural columns by point(s), level(s), or reference plane(s).
Add web stiffeners on one or more W-beams either by selecting the individual points or a distance over two points. The user can define spacing, offsets, insertion location, insertion side and stiffener size.
Automatically copes a selected beam/column with any number of intersecting beams/columns, or copes all the intersecting beams/columns with the selected beam/column and applies an offset specified by the user (supports metric and imperial input formats since version 1.0.1). Now supports Revit 2016.
Automatically exports views and sheets from Autodesk® Revit® to known commercial formats, namely DWG, DWF, FBX, and Image or directly sends them to virtual printers, including Adobe PDF printer. A user can select any number of views to export. Views can be exported as separate files or DWF output can be combined into a single output file and DWG output can generate a single sheet which X-refs its views. User can filter views by user-predefined ‘view/sheet sets’ or by keyword. So in short thousands of views can be exported to different formats with a single click. Trial is fully functional for 15 days.
