Bim Objects For Manufacturers

  1. 1. BIM Objects
  2. 2. What is BIM? Building Information Modeling (BIM) allows architects and engineers to create ‘smart’ 3D models that include embedded data such as size, r- and u-values, energy use data, lifecycle cost information, and heat signature.
  3. 3. Who uses BIM? BIM is the latest evolution in drafting technologies adopted by nearly 80% of architects, engineers and specialists.
  4. 4. How does BIM work? In a traditional drawing if a wall is moved, conflicts and disconnects can be created between the wall and related windows and openings. In a BIM model, the relationship between these objects is maintained.
  5. 5. Advantages of BIM to Architects & Engineers • Required by some State and Federal agencies • Intelligent system interference / clash detection tests • Easy coordination between several parties • Rapid generation of design documents • Ability to run system tests early in the design process.
  6. 6. Advantages of BIM to Product Manufacturers • BIM’s data management tools encourage designers to schedule and test models of actual products and materials • Owners and Designers can see the size, shape and specifications of YOUR products in a 3D model • Embedded 2D details saves Designers time and money
  7. 7. BIM Object Collections Are the New Product Library Many manufacturers supplement product binders and material samples with full BIM object collections.
  8. 8. Worldwide Digital Product Libraries In addition to distributing collections through product representatives and company websites, there are several popular 3rd Party websites that host thousands of product collections.
  9. 9. Invest in BIM Objects for Your Products Compatibility with new BIM technology will ensure a competitive advantage for your products. Easy availability of your products in BIM will boost specifications and sales.
  10. 10. Creating BIM Objects To avoid high software costs and steep in-house learning curves, manufacturers are turning to outside vendors – such as architecture firms – to create their BIM models
  11. 11. BIM at FitzGerald • Considered industry experts • Experienced at creating useable BIM objects • Highly experienced Revit users who have designed and detailed buildings with the software • Outstanding accuracy and practical usability of all BIM objects that FitzGerald creates
  12. 12. FitzGerald BIM Objects • Revit platform • 3D model geometry • Embedded parametric behavior • Plan and elevation 2D representations • Specification data • Rendered appearance with photorealistic material maps • DWF of object
  13. 13. Sample Object • Commercial Window Series • 1’-4” x 1’-4” Awning Window • Fiberglass Frame • LOW-E Glass Pane
