Vertex BD – Advanced Wood Framing Software
Vertex BD is the leading wood and timber framing software for prefab, modular, residential and commercial construction. Architects, drafters, engineers and construction professionals use Vertex BD to streamline their entire building process, from detailing to manufacturing.
The Vertex BD BIM software is specifically designed for commercial and residential wood frames; prefabricated wall, floor, ceiling and roof panels; and modular construction.
Increase Speed & Accuracy Onsite
Vertex 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 automates the process of generating wall, floor, ceiling and roof panel fabrication drawings, structural layouts, cut lists, material reports and manufacturing data, all from one BIM model.
Adapt Easily to Any Project
Vertex BD is the most customizable framing software on the market, featuring material libraries, framing details, and rules — all of which can be modified to work with each unique project.
- Software can utilize any manufacturers’ products; not restricted to specific material manufacturers
- Custom and proprietary material shapes can be added to the system to further modify any building project
Eliminate Manufacturing Errors
Vertex BD streamlines both the detailing and construction processes.
- The Vertex BD software creates material reports and automatically exports data directly to the manufacturing equipment. This skips the step of manual input, minimizing errors and saving production time.
- Architectural 2D plans and 3D models can be imported into Vertex BD from virtually any architectural software, streamlining the framing process and saving drafting time.
