Building Product Manufactures

Building Product Manufacturers can get their products converted into intelligent 3D BIM Objects. This makes it easy for architects and contractors to specify use of your products in their projects.

BIM Objects

 

BIM objects are digital representations of products and equipment that can be placed into intelligent building models. Manufacturer-specific BIM objects contain 3D representations of the product along with associated metadata, such as Omniclass classification, material, model number, MEP connections, and service information.

As architects and designers have embraced Building Information Modeling (BIM), it’s become essential for building product manufacturers to be BIM ready. Firms that provide 3D, BIM enabled models of their products are more likely to

see their offerings included in build projects. The challenge is that many building product manufacturers don’t have the knowledge and resources required to create BIM ready models. This is where Sanrachna can assist.

We have has developed a proven process for creating product models for manufacturing clients:

  • First step is to identify the product lines that need BIM enabled models. Our team will then develop one or two sample models for review.

  • Next step is to generate content with all the necessary BIM object information like part numbers and descriptions, available materials and finishes, performance criteria, electrical requirements, LEED certification, code compliance, and more.

Depending on the design requirements, we develop 3D BIM models using Revit, with different level of details (LOD-100 to LOD-500), to support BIM processes right from concept design through final building design. Our BIM services for building product manufacturers include:

  • 3D BIM content development for building products

  • Revit family creation for BIM library

 

By increasing the opportunity for manufacturers to include their product in building projects, we thus help them in increasing chances of lead generation and profitability.
