Framing and Panel Fabrication Software
for Component Manufacturers and Panelizers
Panel detailing faster than ever
Vertex BD Framer is used primarily as a
panel fabrication software by component manufacturers and panelizers to
automate the process of generating wall and floor panel fabrication
drawings, structural layouts, cut lists, and other material reports.
Utilizing an NC Link add-on module, manufacturers can also export data needed to automate component manufacturing. By automating these processes, manufacturers are saving an enormous amount of time
in drafting, material reporting, data entry, manufacturing, and
correcting all the errors typically made along the way. And, are drastically reducing material waste, too!
The Framer package contains the
functionality necessary for creating structural layouts and fabrication
drawings. This includes all the features for creating walls, doors,
windows, roof, ceilings, and floors in 2D layouts and 3D models, as
well as, the framing layout features for walls, floors, ceilings, and
roofs. It also includes roof and floor truss layout tools for
generating the 2D layouts and truss shape drawings. Truss shape
information can be exported to engineering software for analysis. Wood framed trusses can be exported to Mitek 20/20.
Vertex BD base packages include building material collection and
reporting features, detail drawing management tools, and a full set of
2D CAD drafting tools. Building material information may be exported to
inventory, scheduling, and other construction management software.
Drawings may be printed, plotted, or converted to PDF, DWG, and DXF
Vertex BD Framer is the most customizable
framing package available. It is delivered with standard material
libraries, framing details and rules, all of which may be modified by
your own Vertex BD administrator, or with the assistance of Argos
Systems. Vertex BD is not restricted to specific material
manufacturers, and is an open system that can utilize any manufacturers
products. Custom and proprietary material shapes may also be added into
the system. It is also one of the few framing software packages that
allows designers to modify framing after it has already been generated,
enabling a designer to create just about any framing configuration.
Minimize production errors
following systems are available for wood framed manufacturing:
Omnimiser and Minimiser
Laser Projection System
Home Fabrication Systems
K2 Milling Machine
SC-1 Linear Saw
Another extremely powerful feature that
makes Vertex BD the premier framing system is the ability to add custom
programs to the framing process. We have created thousands of custom
programs to do everything from adding special notes and dimensions,
adding additional connectors and other components, to completely
changing automatically generated framing.
Vertex BD Framer is currently a rule based detailing system used
for manufacturing and material reporting. Even though it does not
perform any structural calculations or make any recommendations based
on an engineering analysis, manufacturers are using Vertex BD Framer as
a collaboration tool with their engineers. Building projects can be
passed from the initial designer, to the engineer, and finally to the
manufacturer without having to redraw the model. This enables an
efficient work flow, while also reducing the risk of errors being
introduced during the lifecycle of the project.
