Wood Framing Wall+ Version 2017.17 Released, Plus New Affordable 'Frame My Project' Service

Editor's Note: The version mentioned in the title of this post is the version compatible with Revit 2017. This add-in is also available in 2016 and 2015 versions. Use AGACAD's free Tools4BIM Dock to install the release for your Revit version.

From the AGACAD website:

New Wood Framing Wall+ versions have been released!

Check out the newest versions of Wood Framing Wall+. From custom joins to offsets, the increased options give you more flexibility in modelling your project.

  • The possibility of creating custom joins under V Connections has been added.

User can predefine each stud position, type, rotation, alignment, etc. The scheme which is predefined by the user is visible in the Symbolic Preview.


  • An option to Make Non Mitered V Panels has been added, which recalculates V panels and makes them non-mitered.

Result if the option is switched off:

  • Now you can have two different stud sizes in the same wall by using the secondary stud system.

  • More flexible options to control Additional Bridging/Nogging/Blocking have been added. Now you can predefine an offset from the selected element or a connected element.

  • You can control the offset from a shorter or longer connected element end.

  • You can add more Bridging/Nogging/Blocking rules – up to 8!

  • More options for Bridging/Nogging/Blocking rules have been added: now there is an External/Internal/Centre setting.

  • A function called Set Max Spacing for Frame has been added, which recalculates maximum stud spacing in the frame.
  • A brand new Cut Beams function cuts beams that intersect with the selected beam.

  • Two window/door/opening header types have been added.
  • Other minor improvements.
