    Question Revit Framing

    I've seen in posts (other areas and blogs) that they have the ability to produce the wall & roof framing. How can I do this, is it some other 3rd party software?

    You can use 3rd party software, or you can use OOTB Structural Columns, Framing Members, and Beam Systems. You can also use a combination.

    Out Of The Box.

    Studs, Joists, Beams, Headers, Tracks, etc, are all just standard Framing Members that ship with Revit.

    Does Revit automatically generate framing, (studs, etc.)? or would be an aftermarket software?

    In your original post, you didnt use the word Automatically. If you want it done *Automatically,* its 3rd party software or Dynamo, and a LOT of time and effort to set either of them up.

    For automatic framing you can look at AGAcad framing
    http://www.aga-cad.com/products/bim-...essional-suite

    If you want to do it by hand, the German OOTB library has some very nice wood framing families.

    You could also look at this company (which I have seen at BILT, but never used personally): https://strucsoftsolutions.com/

    I can share some experience here to this program. I use MWF everyday framing walls and creating shop drawings. It is very helpful but as mentioned previously it takes a lot of up front set up. You need to create all your wall templates and your shop generation templates ideally before you start your framing. However once you do the initial setup in your project and know your workflow it makes wall framing much faster. You still need to do the detail work such as headers and framing for penetrations in the walls but It senses doorways pretty good as long as the template is setup to look and frame for them.

    One clarification: it sets up doorways pretty well of you use very simple doors, like OOTB doors. If you leverage Shared Nested frames that punch the openings out of the wall, MWF will completely screw up every single door opening, unless you want to rework all of your shared nested frames to use OOTB parameters for their overall sizing.

    I think it's a great program, but the way it handles division 08 has made me turn a bunch of companies away from using it.
