New Dupont Bim Design Studio
The DuPont Building Information Modeling Design Studio is an integrated decision-making and planning resource that applies 3-D modeling for wall systems utilizing DuPont Tyvek commercial products.
Available on the Web site at www.dupont.com, the BIM Design Studio functions as a connection between DuPont Tyvek products and data such as structural characteristics, cost estimates and installation timing.
Unique to the BIM Design Studio is the ability for users to perform dew point and condensation analyses through simulations that indicate the presence of condensation within the internal wall cavity for a project’s wall assembly. Additionally, users can create energy modeling analyses, a comparison feature that measures energy savings through heating and cooling costs.
The BIM Design Studio allows architects and project teams using AutoDesk Revit and compatible applications to create wall assemblies “to spec” with Tyvek products. Users can then export these objects for existing Revit projects and generate data in CSI MasterSpec format. For a more robust experience, construction teams can install the Revit Plug-In and begin importing their own projects into the BIM Design Studio. Frequently updated to maintain accuracy, the tool is also fast, creating models at a rate of one every 15 seconds.
