1-2-Tre AS, Norway

After a few years without finding good enough software we started learning ArchiCAD & ArchiFrame at the beginning of 2016.  After 3 weeks we did our first production model using Hundegger Speed Cut CNC-machine for the cutting process. A few weeks later we expanded our work to feed also our Weinmann WEK120 and WMS operation stations with wup-files for element assembly.  This line puts together multiple layer wall elements, including framework assembly, nailing, marking and cutting of all the separate layers in the wall.
What’s been important for us in the choice of switching to ArchiFrame are the visible adjustments and the control of every change and operation. The way to control every tool, every cut and every nail, and that the end product that comes out on the machine looks the same, and can be controlled directly, in ArchiFrame’s working environment is a huge advantage compared to the software we were using earlier. There’s an easy way of «click-and-drag» to change everything. Also the possibilities to access every macro tool, and make our own macros without having to do those things external is important.

BimHouse AB

Arca Nova Element OÜ Estonia

Earlier we used another software to do the structural design but after the introduction of ArchiFrame we decided to take it on use.
The speed of working and quality of the drawings have risen to a new level. ArchiFrame allows you to create constructional drawings with minimal time and expense.
Co-operation with architects has improved. ArchiFrame stands out for its logical structure, speed and ease of use, as well as strong user support.
ArchiFrame continues to improve all the time!

BimHouse AB, Sweden

We have used ArchiFrame since 2015 and we are very pleased with the program. This enables us to work in an unbroken digital process from drawing to sawmills, something that is unique and would be impossible without ArchiFrame. We are convinced that ArchiFrame is one of the keys to next generation's house production and digitization of the construction industry.

Bygg1 Lyngdal AS

Bygg1 Lyngdal AS, Norway

ArchiFrame is the only solution for me when it comes to framing of wooden constructions. It is easy to use, and it has a lot of automation in it. The simplicity of UI and all nice features make my day a lot easier. ArchiFrame is so far the best software solution for people in construction of wooden homes.

Derome Husproduktion AB - Plusshus

Derome Plusshus, Sweden

Derome Plusshus has worked with ArchiFrame since 2018 for designing volume houses in wooden construction. By this we get a completely different level of detail required in our CNC-based production sites. We have the opportunity to work with one cad software throughout the project from architect drawings to CNC-data-files.

KW-Component Oy

KW-Component Ltd, Finland

I am especially fond of the system’s ease of use, logicalness and flexibility. To get good results, 3D modelling is an absolute must. It is easy to check detailed connections from the 3D model. BIMx-model is a great help in production and installations at building site. The biggest advantage in ArchiFrame compared to competing products is its ability to edit the model also in the 2D element drawings. ArchiFrame’s basic tools are better than in competing solutions and allow doing all exceptional cases also. Every update brings more automated tools to increase the design efficiency and quality. In my design work I have two main principles: no 2D line drawing, and quantity takeoffs are taken directly from the model without using calculator. ArchiCAD and ArchiFrame enables doing this perfectly!

PÖLL GmbH, Austria

Archiframe enables us to make the perfect transition from sophisticated planning software to an intelligent and, above all, intuitive production tool for timber construction. The problem of working with different programs on the one hand to get a perfect plan, a vivid visualization and a factory planning incl. CNC interface has been solved for us with ArchiFrame. ARCHIFRAME is the optimal tool for individual timber construction.

Skanska Husfabrikken AS, Norway

We use ArchiCAD and ArchiFrame to produce structural drawings for wooden houses, and for element and module production. We have produced about 270 elements and 330 modules between the beginning of 2014 and January 2015. I can recommend ArchiFrame for similar use.

VVR Wood Oy

VVR Wood Oy, Finland

ArchiCAD & ArchiFrame are by far the most user-friendly of all the BIM software we have encountered. ArchiFrame’s biggest advantage over its competitors is the system’s flexibility and custom features, allowing for a far more tailored solution. One of the most helpful time-saving features is the ability to implement a prefabricated wooden structure with just one click — automation gets it right every time! When designing simple structures, our internal design time has already been halved across the board; but even when designing more complex structures, we have been able to get the same results in about a third of the time it used to take us. And now with ArchiFrame’s new innovative replication and mirroring functions, we expect design time to fall again. One of the key advantages of ArchiFrame is that it virtually eliminates human error thanks to the system’s in-built warning messages and its ability to update the changes automatically to all related 2D-documents.

YIT Rakennus Oy, Finland
www.yit.fi YIT Rakennus Oy, element factory at Hämeenlinna chose ArchiCAD & ArchiFrame

We selected the ArchiCAD & ArchiFrame package because of its user-friendliness, flexibility, and suitability for a wide range of diverse projects. We also wanted to improve both the quality and efficiency of our design process by using 3D modelling. The ability to control CNC-machines directly from the program is an interesting possibility for future projects.
