Thanks for Another Great Show

The new Utility Hole Generator add-on module brings a new level of efficiency and accuracy to building fabrication. Use electrical and plumbing lines to send hole punching information directly to manufacturing equipment. Holes are generated in wood and steel framing, as well as, sheathing. The Utility Hole Generator, in conjunction with an NC link, allows the hole data to be sent to automated saws, steel stud roll formers, and sheathing routers.

What is Vertex BD?

Vertex BD is an advanced building design software for wood and cold-formed 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 adaptable wood and cold-formed 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.

It's No Secret...

It's no secret that Vertex BD is not the cheapest building design software available. It is not a "one-size fits all" product to be delivered to the masses. It is an advanced software application designed with volume production in mind. Production home builders have been utilizing our industry leading Automatic House Options Manager to automate the process of generating lot specific drawing sets, while wood and cold-formed steel panelizers, component manufacturers, modular and manufactured home builders have taken full advantage of our extremely customizable framing generator to automate the generation of production drawings.

Our software rental program has been an effective way to take advantage of all the benefits without all of the upfront costs. Renting has also made it possible to test the software for an extended period, so you can be sure it is everything we say it is, before making that full purchase. Plus, we include our Support and Maintenance service with all software rentals at no additional charge!

*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.
