in architecture, engineering, and construction with advances in computer-aided design and building information management. As specialists in BIM and digital construction, we build on the insights of leading practitioners, our clients, to benefit the AEC community.
From its early days pioneering AutoCAD, to the promotion of 3D design, to Building Information Modeling (BIM) expertise and the development of common BIM standards.
We've trained innumerable professionals, advised on thousands of projects, and built the world's biggest selection of Autodesk® Revit® expert tools.
Over 13 000 clients in 130 countries now trust in our vision, advice and solutions for digital construction, including top design firms like AECOM, ARUP, Atkins, ATP Architects & Engineers, Cannon Design COWI, Foster & Partners, Henn Architekten, HDR Architecture, GRONTMIJ, Ramboll Architecture & Planning, KEO International, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, Stantec, Woods Bagot, and others.
The AEC industry today has to handle huge amounts of data. BIM has enabled 3D, 4D, and 5D work. Now design is adding 6D and 7D while construction and management are shifting to Virtual and/or Augmented Reality. Building projects need real computing power
Enter AGACAD, with its worldwide expertise in BIM system implementation, project-specific consulting, and specialized productivity software for managing the full building lifecycle.
AGACAD implements solutions for 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D, and 7D BIM. They're fully tested and integrated. And they're based on the insights and wish-lists of the most advanced practitioners, so industry best-practices are built-in.
Standards, LOD/LOI rules, element classification, data exchange and management.
Design, engineering, and production
Construction scheduling, planning and control
Costs and analysis
Facility management over the full lifetime of an asset

AGACAD's vision is, together with our clients, to contribute to the further evolution of the AEC industry. Not just to deliver tomorrow's AEC, but to help create it.
Very soon construction will be based not on drawings, but on information.
At building sites, 3D information will be used rather than plans, with augmented and/or virtual reality tools putting exact data in each exact place. And on-site 3D printing technologies are also rapidly advancing.
The key will be building information "management" rather than modeling.
AEC professionals will speak not about models, but about rapid exchanges of information, precise amounts of data, and the specific information needs at a given time.
Already now at AGACAD we have solutions for outputting from a BIM model directly to CNC machines, any cloud, project management software, cost estimation software, and even ERP. Today it's possible to assemble all the information needed to 3D-print a building and send it somewhere, say to Mars, for actual output.
Our current R&D focus is "∞D BIM" and buildings with Artificial Intelligence – an unavoidable part of the AEC future. CEO Donatas Aksomitas has begun examining key related issues for effective BIM data management and exchange on his new blog BIMAXON

was brought to Lithuania from Germany by future AGACAD founder Gintaris Aksomitas, who quickly set up one of Autodesk's earliest Authorized Training Centers in Europe and began teaching AutoCAD (and computer literacy). A doctor in technical sciences himself, he was inspired by his father's work to industrialize Baltic construction.
Gintaris Aksomitas created the first AutoCAD add-on for architectural design.
On February 1st
less than a month after Lithuania defended its regained independence. The company originally focused on importing and distributing the latest CAD technology and training local professionals.
The Internet was born in Lithuania as the first connection to the World Wide Web was made.
Donatas Aksomitas joined the company
after graduating as a construction engineer. The company began promoting 3D design solutions.
and published a white paper on BIM.
Acquisition price $133 000 000
for the Baltic, Nordic and Northern European regions. It also became an Autodesk Authorized Developer for Revit.
RAFTER+ and SORT&MARK
The company was recognized by Autodesk as an Authorized Certification Center.
led by orders from clients in the U.S., Australia, Norway and The Netherlands.
During this period AGACAD launched dozens of new BIM tools and solutions while building a global network of distribution partners.
It also contributed to developing Denmark's new BIM standard within the "Cuneco" project, helped launch Lithuania's "Digital Construction" initiative, and took part in other industry efforts.
Lithuania adopted the euro
In the year of its 27th anniversary, AGACAD's portfolio of Revit add-ons and other BIM solutions became the largest in the world.
Received for contributions to the field as well as initiatives to develop and promote the use of BIM methodology
Our Precast Concrete suite for Revit got strong attention amid growing precast use worldwide.
The beta-launch of our new-generation BIM data management platform was held at Autodesk University in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, AGACAD CEO Donatas Aksomitas started the Bimaxon.com blog on data efficiency and precision in BIM.
Autodesk named AGACAD one of its first "AEC Industry Partners" – trusted providers of technology that complements Autodesk’s own platforms for BIM.
We launched a slew of industry-focused solutions and intensified R&D work in areas like AI for buildings, mixed reality, CDEs, classification systems and more.
We worked closely with clients to customise and further enhance our industry-
focused BIM solutions, especially for framing.
Autodesk added AGACAD Wood Framing software to its AEC Industry Partner portal.
Specialty framing solutions launched: for SIPS, CLT, Oak, ventilated facades and
Rebar-modelling automation marked a major addition to our Precast toolbox.

We became a part of ARKANCE, an international leader in the digital transformation
of construction and manufacturing, thus gaining resources to realize our vision of
creating tomorrow’s AEC more fully and bringing the ARKANCE group
AGACAD's proven ability to develop world-class, innovative digital technologies.
AGACAD is thankful to all the clients, business partners and other members of the AEC community who, during our first quarter century of work, have supported, encouraged, and put their trust in us.
And in a special way we're grateful to our team of truly outstanding professionals for their constant dedication, drive, and insights.
We remain fully committed to working closely with all of you to reduce BIM stress, secure BIM benefits, share BIM advances, and promote the BIM industry.
This Florida-based full-service BIM consultant says they have been able to take on more projects, deliver higher quality models and profit from “unbelievable” time savings since they began using AGACAD’s solution for Revit®.
This Slovenia-based international producer of prefabricated buildings says the ever-evolving advanced technology in AGACAD’s Wood Framing suite and other BIM software for Revit® has boosted its throughput and lowered its costs: “Interoperability is the word,” the company’s head of BIM said, noting they “can now build a project in its entirety in just one model from start to finish.”
This Canadian engineering and design firm says AGACAD’s software for modelling precast concrete elements in Revit® has halved the time it spends on drawings and improved its overall efficiency while enhancing project quality. “The benefit is quite clear. The tools have made it possible to provide more detail without any extra work,” a company representative says.
This UK design and fit-out firm uses many specialized BIM families for interior detailing in the advanced Revit® models that help it sell, coordinate, and deliver projects in 10 countries. AGACAD’s Smart Browser solution has enabled it to efficiently manage all that BIM content.
AGACAD was hired by this real estate developer to oversee the BIM work in a project for an environmentally friendly “shopping centre of the future”. The building has won BIM awards and helped AGACAD advance with its BIMAXON platform for buildings with artificial intelligence.
