Thank You for a Great Show!

Thanks again to everyone that visited us at the show last month in Orlando. An extra special thanks to those of you that got to watch a snow storm from inside an airport terminal before getting to the show.

Hope to see you all next year!

The 2012 NAHB International Builders' Show

February 8-11, 2012

What is Vertex BD?

Vertex BD is an advanced building design software for wood and light gauge steel framed construction. This stand alone software application maximizes productivity and accuracy by generating data from ONE SOURCE:

    • architectural layouts
    • interior & exterior elevations
    • structural layouts
    • fabrication drawings
    • material reports
    • manufacturing data
    • rendered images
    • 3D models

Vertex BD features the industry leading automatic house options system and the most customizable wood and light gauge steel framing generators available, saving countless hours and drastically reducing material waste. Manufacturing data may be transferred directly to automated equipment. Material reports may be exported to project management systems.

Argos Systems provides software sales and rentals, onsite training, customization services, and software support and maintenance for our parent company, Vertex Systems.

Increase Efficiency, Minimize Investment

Many builders continue to operate with a reduced staff. Implementing technology such as Vertex BD will give your team the tools needed to meet increasing demands. Making large investments in technology may be difficult these days, and that is why Argos Systems has introduced a new software rental option. By renting Vertex BD, you can take advantage of all the benefits without all of the upfront costs.


*Support and maintenance is included with software rentals. Annual support and maintenance service may be purchased separately from purchase of software. Please contact Argos Systems for details.
