Vertex BD

Vertex BD: One stop solution for Cold Formed Steel Structures  – From Modelling to detailing to manufacturing.

Vertex BD is the leading cold-formed steel framing software / light gauge steel 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 cold-formed steel frames and trusses; prefabricated wall, floor, ceiling and roof panels; bathroom pods and modular construction

  • Automating the process of generating wall, floor, ceiling and roof panel fabrication drawings, structural layouts, cut lists, material reports and manufacturing data

Why Vertex BD?

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.


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


Connect Your Detailing and Manufacturing Teams



Vertex BD streamlines both the detailing and construction processes.

  • 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.

  • 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.


How Vertex BD works?

This video covers the process of generating cold-formed steel framing, panel fabrication drawings, cutting lists and a material report, as well as producing steel profiles with a roll-forming machine and an assembly of a wall panel.


End result? More projects, Less time .

Vertex BD allows you to complete tasks effectively, accurately, quickly, and on budget, giving you more bandwidth to take on bigger, more complex projects.
