Floor Panel Layout – Prefabricated Floor Panelling Software

From the AGACAD website:

The Ultimate Prefabricated Floor Panelling Software for Revit®

Floor Panel Layout – a powerful product for planning floor panels and splitting them into massive slabs or hollow core slabs. These prefabricated Revit® floor panels can later be used in the floor framing process.

Floor Panel Layout takes the architect’s designed floor and automates panel layout planning. The software draws symbolic lines to indicate the future panels according to predefined rules. Then it creates real Revit floor panels – massive or hollow core slabs. Massive floor panels later can be framed using Wood or Metal Framing Floor+. Prefabricated floor framing can include battens, bracing, edge joists, flooring, etc.

Ideal for Structural Engineers, Precast Floor Designers and Manufactures
Compatible with REVIT 2018, 2017, 2016

You can find Similar features for Revit® roofs too using our new Roof Panel Layout.
Possible workflows for creating massive concrete or hollow core slabs, as well as a framed floor:

Ideal for:
  • Structural Engineers
    • Easy floor panel creation according to architect’s designed floor geometry. 
  • Precast Floor Designers and Manufactures
    • Floor Panel Layout creates prefabricated floor panels – massive or hollow core slabs, according to user specific rules.

Powerful features:
  • Efficiency 
    • Automatically divides architectural floor into coarse partitions – Regions – identified by using floor edges and supports (split lines), and also by Generic or System Openings.
    • Divides selected floor face or the whole floor into panels by a predefined spacing and layout method. 
    • Creates individual floor segments – massive or hollow core slabs, according to panel layout. 
  • Management
    • Updates panels accordingly if architect’s floor design changes.
    • Created panels can easily be controlled, aligned, modified, or additionally split.
  • Interaction
    • Existing floor panels can be framed using Wood
    • Framing Floor+ or Metal Framing Floor+. 

  • Incredibly Speedy. Floor Panel Layout enables you to automatically create individual floor panels according to any architect’s designed floor geometry. 
  • Hundreds of hours per project saved. Without this solution Revit® users would need to draw individual panels manually, one by one, accounting for various openings and floor shapes every time. 
  • Easy Updates. If there are changes to the floor, the user just needs to update the panel layout with “Update Panel Layout” for the selected floor segment or the whole floor. 
  • Easy to Use. 

Floor Panel Layout is brought to you by AGACAD. Pricing was not known at press time.

This add-in is compatible with Revit 2018, 2017, and 2016.
