AGACAD Launches Panel Design Automation for Revit

AGACAD Sandwich Panels brings a powerful collection of features for automation, efficient modeling, design, and output to Autodesk Revit.


AGACAD, the developer of advanced technologies for building information modeling and management, has introduced the industry’s first BIM software for the automation, design, and documentation of full building envelopes with insulated sandwich panels in Autodesk Revit.

Sandwich Panels and Revit

This package is the latest technology offering from AGACAD and extends its range of popular framing add-ons for work with heavy timber, CLT, SIPS, ventilated facades, and curtain walls and panels.

“This new technology fills an important gap in the market for BIM tools. Until now there was no way to rapidly create highly detailed insulated panels together with any kind of support framework and easily transform a Revit architectural model into an accurate structural model made of sandwich panels. Our Sandwich Panels suite enables new speed, efficiency, and accuracy of design in a unified BIM project environment,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the Managing Director of AGACAD.

AGACAD’s industry-first sandwich panel system is a Revit add-on technology offering (Sandwich Panel Suite) for Revit.

Sandwich panels entail a core of insulating material between two sheets of metal skins. The construction industry is increasingly embracing shell structures clad with sandwich panels as a quick and economical way to build highly energy-efficient buildings for logistics, manufacturing, warehouse, retail, sport, and other uses.

Autodesk in 2018 named AGACAD as one of its first AEC Industry Partners, citing the company’s transformational framing technologies. Industry partners build on top of Autodesk platforms to enable unique product offerings and point solutions in the AEC/O industry. Such offerings bring down waste (known as muda in Japan’s Toyota Way lean manufacturing system) and deliver more efficient designs and faster cycles.

Upcoming Webinar

AGACAD will detail and demonstrate the features of its new Sandwich Panels solution for BIM in a free webinar on 10 February 2022 (register here). Users, besides getting Revit families for work with sandwich panels, will tap into the latest design and documentation technologies –including configuration-based automation– for creating models, generating framing and distributing details, coordinating MEP and structural work on BIM teams, and producing all needed documentation.
