Light Gauge Steel Framing Software for Design, Truss Engineering, and Analysis

The only steel frame truss design software for Revit®

Quickly Build Complex Steel Frames

MWF Advanced Metal encompasses all the features of MWF Pro Metal and more. Engineer complex truss systems or individual trusses, and utilize Revit® loads, local code and custom design criteria to model and manufacture light gauge steel floor and roof systems.

Automatically generate detailed engineering reports, fabrication drawings, and material lists. 

1

Limitless Configurations

Take advantage of the advanced element analysis engine and the limitless number of configurations available in the MWF product line. 

With an almost infinite number of framing configurations possible, user defined templates make wall framing automatic, and fully parametric changes are made across all views and sheets. MWF Advanced Metal will recognize nearly all Revit® roof and floor profiles and automatically lay out full truss systems.

Pre-Loaded Libraries

Pre-Loaded
Libraries

MWF is completely designed with the highest industry standards in mind.

Use or create your own custom member families that are project specific or choose from our expansive library of building components from leading industry manufacturers like ClarkDietrich, CEMCO, iSPAN, MarinoWARE, SCAFCO and more.

3

Detect Openings

Quickly detect Revit® openings and apply framing rules to entire projects, per panel, floor and more.  

Detect clashes between critical framing, structural beams and MEP intersections. Automatically generate openings and frame them according to user defined criteria in just a few clicks. Use custom Revit® families or access our library of pre-loaded building components from top manufacturers in the industry. 

4

Floor Systems

Design complete floor systems and optimize your designs according to load conditions, local codes and more. 

Apply Revit® loads and complete floors analysis to member types and allow MWF Advanced Metal to suggest optimal member sizes based on local load conditions and LRFD, ASD (USA) or LSD (Canada) codes.

5

Truss Engineering

Design oddball trusses freehand using model lines, for further optimization and engineering in your final Revit® model.

Virtually any truss shape is supported either through automatic detection of the Revit® roof profile or by manual features allowing the user to manually draft truss profiles. Using the truss designer, inline, back -to-back and wall truss configuration are all supported, making design versatile and free of constraint.

6

Create Drawings

Optimize member selection and steel truss design and automatically generate engineered reports and detailed production drawings.

Create 3D framing, 2D drawings, material lists and more in just a few seconds. From there, easily export your entire project with framing data directly to a variety of light gauge steel CNC machines or robotic panelizing machines such as Howick, FrameCAD, Pinnacle and more.
