Building Information Modelling design support
What is BIM?
BIM is an intelligent model-based process that provides insights to help you plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructures. It is a complete 3D model that encourages collaboration and aims to reduce issues at the time of construction, and save time and money.
A BIM Object is a 3D representation of a building object (such as doors, bathroom features, furniture, lights and HVAC-R systems). Inside every BIM object, valuable information about that object (e.g. capacities, electrical specifications, pipe connections, clearance spaces, etc.) is stored.
Our VRV and Applied systems ranges are available as BIM objects in Revit format, which means that they can be used in Autodesk REVIT MEP:
- Installers have an edge over the competition when customers demand that BIM be used.
- Consultants have direct access to the base data through the objects. This way they can design the system and see how our solutions will fit your project.
- Customers have easy access to latest relevant information needed to maintain and manage the installation.
AutoCAD vs BIM Revit
- In AutoCAD, before you begin drawing, you must decide what type of drawing you will make – a plan, section or elevation. AutoCAD is a drafting workflow where drawings are created and edited independently.
- In Revit, drawings are synchronised and it functions like a live preview of your building model. Such models also contain project-related data. You can use Revit as a 3D modeller, but you can also use it to produce plans, sections and elevations.
