Company: 1-2-Tre AS
Industry: Element production
Location: Våle, Norway
Year founded: 1970

1-2 Tre offers exact solutions for the needs of their construction industry clients. The company supplies customers with wall, floor, and roof elements, as well as roof trusses and precut solutions for family homes, cabins, garages, and larger projects. 


After years of working with a number of unsatisfying design programs, 1-2 Tre decided to look further for a new design tool that would actually fit their needs. The company needed an efficient and user-friendly software that would cover the company’s entire element production process in detail.

In 2016, 1-2 Tre first came across Archicad and its add-on, ArchiFrame. In the first three weeks, the company had already done their first production model, implementing the design using a Hundegger Speed Cut CNC -machine. 

A few weeks later, they expanded their scope of work with ArchiFrame and proceeded with the implementation of Weinmann WEK120 and WMS operation stations with wup-files for element assembly.  

“We also use ArchiFrame for structural design and, in the future, we will move all our structuring and design work to the same program (ArchiFrame).”

Why ArchiFrame?

The use of ArchiFrame has streamlined 1-2 Tre’s production process significantly: ”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”, 1-2 Tre Designer, Jan Frode Nilsen, says.

Benefits of using ArchiFrame

“ArchiFrame’s working environment is a huge advantage compared to the software we were using earlier.”

ArchiFrame provides users with direct control of every single element in the design, so every cut and every nail is in its place. The end product will always look as it did in the design.
“There’s an easy way to «click-and-drag» to change everything. Also the possibilities of accessing every macro tool, and making our own macros without having to do those things externally is important”, Nilsen states.
