Add openings in Revit® model to structural framing elements – cut holes for MEP services, doors, windows, beams & columns
Cut Opening is used to generate and control opening elements in Revit® models. Openings can be created where ducts, pipes, cable trays and conduits intersect walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, beams or columns. This advanced BIM solution can create modified openings with holding details for structural beams. You get much faster design and drawings and increased precision to ensure accurate bills of materials and builders work.
FEATURES OF THE MODULE
- Automatically creates openings where ducts, pipes, cable trays or conduits intersect walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, beams or columns.
- Automatically adds openings with predefined sizes in accordance with MEP line-based element sizes, categories and system classifications.
- Automatically joins openings per predefined configurations.
- Automatically inserts fire dampers where ducts clash with walls, floors, ceilings or roofs with fire rating.
- Automatically inserts structural openings for separate architectural and structural models.
- Enhances BIM teamwork and deliverables for integrated project delivery (IPD).
Cut Opening processes interference check information between current, linked, or IFC files to get locations, type, and depth of clashes. It applies your predefined cut offsets and offsets for joining openings, and then automatically fills in your Revit® model with 10s, 100s, or even 1000s of openings with just one click. Like in any other tool provided by AGACAD, all configurations can be saved for later use and shared between users.
The software lets MEP and structural engineers and architects reserve spaces for openings by placing specific void or solid element families in the project. It lets you control all of the openings with a single control window while also allowing other project participants to review, accept or decline them and leave comments as needed.
Cut Opening inserts fire dampers in accordance with information from clash detection and the fire rating of structural elements. It can also insert structural openings in structural walls even in cases where the architectural walls, windows and doors are separate from the structural model.

Cut Opening was developed and is continually being enhanced based on best international practices and the experiences of top Revit users. This Revit extension detects clashes and inserts the required openings in the model. It inserts fire dampers in walls with fire rating and openings in structural models where architectural windows or doors are placed. Just set the configurations, and let Cut Opening do the rest!

Learn about Cut Opening features that let Revit users avoid repetitive tasks and create more accurate BIM models.
- Cut Opening uses element clash report straight from Revit. It reads external .html file where all necessary information is written – information about two clashing elements, their elevations and coordinates. After review and some changes, it saves clashes in xml file for the future work.
- MEP engineer forms an .XML file with all the data inside, which is required to insert openings into architectural or structural file. Architect or structural engineer inserts openings with just one click. Architects or structural engineers can accept or decline openings if needed.
- This BIM solution inserts openings according Revit® “Interference Check Data” results. Cut Opening supports all line based MEP elements (Ducts, Pipes, Cable Trays and Conduits) as well as structural elements (Walls, Floors, Ceilings, Roofs, Beams and Columns).
- Cut Opening has predefined configurations of openings’ shapes, sizes, joining offsets that are dependent on MEP elements size.
- This application is divided into segments to fit all users’ needs. One user could define different configurations for different MEP element categories and system classifications. Cut Opening supports element categories and system classifications:
- Fire Protection (Supports Fire Protection Dry, Fire Protection Other, Fire protection Pre-Action and Fire Protection Wet system classifications);
- Plumbing (Supports Domestic Cold Water and Domestic Hot Water system classifications);
- Sanitary (Supports Sanitary and Vent system classifications);
- Hydronic (Supports Hydronic Supply and Hydronic Return system classifications;
- Other (Supports Other and all additionally created system classifications;
- Cable tray;
- Cut Opening lets user define offsets of openings depending on element size, category and system classification.
- Cut Opening lets user define joining distance between several openings depending on element size, category and system classification.
- Cut Opening works with linked files. Architectural/structural project can be linked to MEP project or MEP project can be linked to architectural/structural project.
- Cut Opening creates openings for Structural Framing category
- Cut Opening works with IFC files. MEP objects can be link imported into current Revit model where real elements are placed.
- Cut Opening enables users to conveniently control openings. Revit elements are conveniently grouped together in a tree where user can filter them by any configurable criterion, such as category, level or other parameter.
- Cut Opening enables users to inspect model using dynamic section boxes, see the elements in model by selecting the rows in dialog window, see elements by ID, isolate, hide, etc.
- Automatically inserts Fire Dampers where ducts clash with walls, floors, ceilings or roofs with fire rating.
- Cut Opening inserts Structural Openings to structural walls in case when architectural walls, windows and doors are separated from the structural walls.
