ClarkDietrich Custom BIM Framing Tools

BIM/Revit® Tools for Contractors

For Revit® and StrucSoft Solutions MWF Pro Wall

When it comes to building your BIM model with cold-formed steel framing and detecting clashes of other trade systems, having the right tools in your Autodesk Revit® software is essential. The combination of these tools will help the project’s design teams mix collaboration between all the trades and streamline their cold-formed steel Revit® BIM models.

ClarkDietrich's Custom Framing Tools are available in the Nov. 2014 release of StrucSoft Solutions MWF package for all current subscribers.

ClarkDietrich has been working closely with StrucSoft Solutions (Revit® software extension developers) since 2010 developing extension tools for our BIM Engineering Team. In 2011, with StrucSoft, we also developed the ClarkDietrich Wall Type Creator Revit® add-In. The first cold-formed steel Revit® add-in design tool to help Architects build information-rich wall types, with specific details on UL, STC and limiting heights. Now we would like to share our BIM Framing tools with the Contractors.
On Nov. 12th 2014 we have release our custom BIM Framing Tools with all subscriptions of the StrucSoft Solutions MWF (Metal Wood Framer) Pro Wall packages. Along with MWF's wall framing creation and clash detection tools, MWF also includes the below ClarkDietrich products and framing tools:
