New BIM Objects from Thermafiber
Thermafiber Inc. and ARCAT have developed AutoDesk Revit BIM objects for Thermafiber’s mineral wool insulation products. These objects are available for free download on the ARCAT site and also accessible on Thermafiber’s Web site.
“BIM technology and acceptance has grown dramatically over the last couple of years,” said Austin Hess, Thermafiber’s director of business development. “Adding Thermafiber BIM objects to ARCAT supports our Thermafiber Insolutions. We want to provide the architectural community with the tools and solutions that make our products easier to specify and understand. The BIM objects will compliment the free technical services and custom AutoCAD designs that we currently offer.”
In addition to creating accurate graphics, Thermafiber and ARCAT have added appropriate product data to each object, saving architects and engineers a significant amount of time doing data entry and product research. All of the BIM objects, graphics and content, are uniform and modifiable for ease of use. In addition to product information, links to Thermafiber’s CSI 3-Part specs are embedded in the objects.
