Building Product Manufacturers - Modeling Strategies for BIM
Creating high quality Revit BIM models and getting them distributed to the design community is essential if you want to ensure that your products continue to be spec’d on build projects from small to large and from commercial to industrial, institutional, and government.
Few building product manufacturers have the know-how or resources, however, to create 3D product models that:
- Are BIM-ready
- Contain all the information designers and contractors need for their BIM
- Are data-rich but not overburdened with info the building designer doesn’t need
How do you decide which products you should model first? How do you determine what kinds of information to include in your models? Where do you get the expertise you need?
The IMAGINiT Approach
At IMAGINiT, we have teams of building design and manufacturing/mechanical engineering pros that understand what architects and designers need in 3D product models, and have perfected a BIM process for building product manufacturers.
- Whether you want to outsource the entire product model creation program or build your own in-house, we can provide the necessary know-how to help you create a comprehensive BIM modeling and publishing strategy.
- We create (or help you create) product models with all the necessary BIM object information—all the technical metadata a designer requires, including part number/description, available materials/finishes, performance criteria, electrical requirements, LEED certification, code compliance, connection points, and so on.
The IMAGINiT Advantage
Our experts come from the real world of design and engineering—teams who have helped thousands of IMAGINiT clients in building design firms and others who have worked extensively with manufacturing/mechanical engineers.
This gives us a deep understanding of how manufacturing firms function, how engineers work, how building designers and architects operate and—most importantly—how they can work with each other in getting a building designed, spec’d and built.
