Aluminum is making it easier for the A & D community to incorporate its glazing systems into their Autodesk Revit® or AutoCAD® building models. Using the Autodesk Seek platform, they can now download CRL-U.S. Aluminum Building Information Modeling (BIM) files, giving them the ability to work faster and with more confidence. Because BIM files give detailed digital representations of the company's glazing systems, CRL aims to create a reliable resource for making key product decisions.
Autodesk Seek allows design professionals to easily locate, preview, and download branded materials from manufacturers in order to increase efficiencies when designing structures. BIM files take it a step further by providing detailed three-dimensional building product models that can be integrated into architectural drawings throughout all phases of the design process. BIM content also provides greater flexibility and accuracy when it comes to specifying.
"Our goal with offering BIM content on Autodesk Seek is to minimize the challenges design professionals face with every project and increase opportunities to make industry connections," said Bojan Komadina, VP of Engineering at CRL. "The Seek platform helps to simplify the product selection process by quickly communicating the performance and functional characteristics of our systems, and providing the supporting drawing and specification documents."
Autodesk Seek now offers Revit files for CRL-U.S. Aluminum architectural glazing solutions including Storefronts, Curtain Walls, Office Partitions, and Entrance Systems. For more information, visit the CRL-U.S. Aluminum page on Autodesk Seek by clicking here.
