The company is launching a no-screw, snap-together framing system for interior partition wall framing. The company’s product workflow begins with its HyperBIM software, a browser-based BIM application that makes it faster and easier to achieve a coordinated LOD 400 BIM. The company then manufactures each stick of framing to match the BIM and delivers kits to corresponding zones in the field. Each piece snaps into place with no cutting and no screws. The installer is guided by an augmented reality headset that displays a hologram where each stick of framing fits into the building. The company expects its framing workflow to achieve up to 15x faster production rates in the field while achieving superior safety and quality.
Advanced Technology Stud Finder
Next-generation “intelligent” models incorporate multiple sensors and sophisticated signal processing technology to filter out “false positives.” The Wood Stud SuperScan with Target Control Technology + FILTERz. By analyzing the complex data streams from multiple sensors and controlling the result using sophisticated intelligence, the stud finder finds wood studs and filters out metallic objects, such as plumbing, conduit, straps, brackets, screws, protector plates, or ductwork in the wall. Additionally, the technology alerts the user to the presence of other low signal-strength, non-metallic targets, like plastic pipe, PEX tubing, and wiring. A new and improved user interface provides an intuitive “go/no go” indication in response to what is being sensed. With a new haptic vibration and a patented SpotLite Pointer that shines an arrow-shaped beam on the wall, users can clearly understand the target’s location and areas to avoid.

Real-time Online Tool
The Tally Climate Action Tool (tallyCAT), currently in beta, is a free and open-access tool that provides the data necessary to prioritize low-carbon products and make environmentally responsible decisions early, swiftly, and confidently – all while working within Revit, a BIM software. The tool provides designers with real-time information on material performance and carbon impacts via direct access to the Embodied Carbon in Construction Calculator’s (EC3’s) global database of Environmental Product Declarations—the primary pathway for manufacturers to communicate the environmental impacts of their products.
