It´s all about  BIM


Building Information Model - The Single Source of Information

The Building Information Model (BIM) in Vertex BD is your single source for everything in your design and construction process. Vertex BD uses real building elements to model your designs in every detail, exactly as it will be built. The Building Information Model is the source of all information including drawings, material estimates, framing details - even sales tools. Vertex BD offers even more ways to make the most of your design.

Vertex BD automates processes and 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.

With the all-new IFC file conversion tool, architectural 3D-models can be imported into Vertex BD from almost any architectural software. The IFC conversion tool streamlines the overall architectural to framing process by converting IFC 3D model geometry into native Vertex BD 3D objects, and skips the trace-over and re-modeling phases in the process.

The produced design drawings and other data produced as well as their changes are transferred immediately to production floor. The solution enables up-to-date  management of the erection phase documentation .

Vertex BD - Effective tool for architectural design

Vertex BD will revolutionise how your company uses your architectural drawings and models. Vertex BD adapts to your specific way of building. Vertex easily handles your particular building details, making your design process more efficient and flexible. The unique Vertex platform enables you to custom fit Vertex technology to different parts of your business, streamlining your operations.

Vertex BD tools are designed to fit the way you work, making your design process more flexible, efficient and productive.

Vertex BD Architectural Design (Steel)


The benefits of parametrical design



Make changes more flexibly. By the help of parametrization the managing of changes is much easier. For example, the walls, openings and other components can be relocated, the floor height can be adjusted and the roof slope can be edited.

Save modeling time. Use the component library and same time take the advantage of parametrization. Using the same parametric model with different dimensions considerably saves the design time.

Reduce errors. With the help of parametrization the software takes care of the relations between objects. For example, the roof is set to follow the distance between roof and walls.

Parametrization is a standard function of Vertex BD Building Design Software.



Automate the process of generating shop drawings and material reports


Vertex BD for cold-formed / light gauge steel are primarily used as panel fabrication software by component manufacturers and panelizers. It automates the process of generating wall and floor panel fabrication drawings, structural layouts, cut lists, and other material reports. 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.

Vertex BD CFS



Best Tools Ever

For CFS Truss Frame Design.


Vertex contains flexible and effective tools for generation of truss frames. As a part of truss design process, strength of truss can be checked using an optional truss engineering module. There is no need to transfer structure to any external software.
Just add loads and check capacity of the truss. 
(At the moment supporting Australian building code as well as Eurocode 3.)




Eliminate production errors

Vertex BD is the most customizable framing package available; it is delivered with standard material libraries, framing details and rules, all of which may be modified. It 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. Utilizing an NC Link add-on module, manufacturers can also export data directly to roll-forming machines to save time and minimize errors in production. 

The following systems are available for steel framed manufacturing:

| Howick | Royal Systems | Pinnacle | Samesor | Beck Automation Controller | Dahezhongbang |
| AMS Eclipse Controller | Knudson | Bora | Studmeister | Jobsite | FrameMac | UNBAK Machinery |
