Smarter software. Better results.Vertex BD is a professional building design software that automates your detailing and construction processes. It relies on automation tools to execute many of the repetitive tasks that can keep your staff from more pressing job responsibilities.
At Vertex, we value your time.
We’ve created software that simplifies the processes behind even the most complex projects. By using digital automation, Vertex BD streamlines the drafting and construction processes, relying on automation tools to execute many of the repetitive tasks that can keep your staff from more pressing job responsibilities. This saves time on detailing, material reporting, data entry, manufacturing and correcting all the errors typically made along the way.
The result: more time for architects, drafters, and builders to focus on the big task of creating innovative designs that will change the way we live in the future.
Vertex BD is a rule-based BIM (Building Information Modeling) architectural and framing software for residential and commercial construction. The software automates the process of generating architectural drawings sets, panel fabrication drawings, structural layouts, cut lists, material reports and manufacturing data from the BIM model allowing home builders, frame and truss manufacturers, and modular builders to complete projects quickly and accurately while minimizing errors in production.
“Vertex BD is the most well-thought-out program we’ve seen. It’s complex enough to handle different conditions, but simple enough so that you can’t get lost. It’s intuitive to use compared to other programs.”Kristopher Kitowski
Vertex BD for Cold-Formed Steel FramingVertex BD technology automates the process of creating panel fabrication drawings in seconds, thanks to the software’s defined framing rules. This allows manufacturers to plan ahead and build more components offsite, increasing efficiency and keeping costs down during construction.
Vertex BD for Wood FramingVertex BD technology brings added value to your business by streamlining the processes of design, production, and assembly. For wood construction, panel fabrication drawings are generated automatically in seconds, allowing manufacturers to plan ahead and build more components offsite. The result: Increased efficiency and less expense at the job site.
Vertex BD for Home BuildersVertex BD software enables you to deliver a project from design to build in a simple, time efficient and most cost effective way. It automates the process from architectural design to production, by creating drawing sets and manufacturing data from a single building model. Vertex BD drastically reduces the time needed to produce quality sets of plans.
“New entrants now find it more convenient to learn about the whole procedure of light steel frame construction — from how to design a building using light steel frame structure design software, how to produce the light steel frames with our machine, and how to assemble them together according to drawings.”
One single building project can involve designers, engineers, architects, and subcontractors spending hundreds of hours drafting the plans and executing the build. And while this type of collaboration has the potential to take a project to the next level, it can also be problematic without proper coordination.
“Using effective design software and a product data management system we can avoid problems and maintain good quality throughout the entire production and construction process of the house.”
By providing the contractors and subcontractors with a higher level of detail, BIM software ensures that errors are caught, expectations are aligned, and cost estimates and schedules are accurate.
