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.

Framing Elevation Views


Use the Define Cross Sections function from the Drawings menu to define views from the framing model.

If you draw the section line along the front of your structure, and limit the depth to the front wall, you can create a front elevation view of the framing structure.
