VisionREZ® 2018 for Revit® and Navisworks® Plug-In’s Now Available

The Leading Software Developer of Residential Construction Tools for Revit and Navisworks

Grand Prairie, TX — Wednesday, September 13, 2017— Alpine, a leading North American supplier of products and services for the architectural drafting, building and component manufacturing industry, has announced the release of VisionREZ® 2018 for Revit® and Navisworks®. This is the 6th release of a VisionREZ designed specifically for the Revit platform, and the third release for the Navisworks platform based on the award-winning VisionREZ products for AutoCAD® Architecture (ACA). Four individual modules: Architecture, Structure, Options Management and Fabrication (wall panels) encompass the Revit release, along with a plugin for Navisworks.

Momentous development to the VisionREZ Structure module has resulted in significant improvement for the wood-framed residential building industry. VisionREZ Structure can now create real-time wall framing inside of Revit using native Revit objects. New Quick-Frame tools and framing via Revit links were added to the horizontal framing toolset. The new features allow for separate structural framing projects that will not burden the original architectural project. According to Steve Bumbalough, VisionREZ Product Manager, “With the 2018 Release of VisionREZ for Revit the builder can now easily generate the most accurate framing takeoffs available for light frame construction using Revit. Builders can frame their models using framing rules and assemblies that work specifically for their markets as easily as swapping out a few thumbnail images”. The enhancement to the VisionREZ Design Option Module feature the Enterprise version to support larger national and regional builders. The Option Administration tool has been redesigned and implemented for builders desiring to establish a corporate strategy for option management. To accommodate the larger scale workflow, VisionREZ Design Options is fully functional in the Revit Worksharing environment.
