Revit® software users can now access the Hyne Timber 'GLT Families' for designs incorporating Australian graded, independently certified GLT products for their timber projects while ensuring product specifications are accurate and reliable.

The GLT BIM library consists of Beam 21 and LGL, available in beam and column families. It contains all product details from dimensions, mass and volume, down to the colour and texture of GLT which can be brought into 3D model. GLT BIM content also provides reassurance to the end user that materials are compliant, certified, and sustainably sourced from within Australia.

For Autodesk Revit®



If you would like to receive free software training, technical or timber design support, the Hyne Timber Product Information Service is available by emailing
