Şişecam, Europe’s leading flat glass producer in terms of production capacity, created BIM Smart Objects for its flat glass products and featured them both on its own website and BIMobject.com in order to be used in projects that require Building Information Modeling.
As one of the top five flat glass producers worldwide, Şişecam created digital replicas – BIM Smart Object versions – of its flat glass products. These digital products are now available on the Şişecam website as well as BIMobject.com. This effort ensures that Şişecam Flat Glass products are widely accessible in those projects where BIM (Building Information Modelling) is used.
A BIM Smart Object includes various types of information; such as performance data, dimensions, weight, thickness, glass combination, glass type, etc in total 150 parameters as well as a 3D model version of the product. Architects, engineers and construction professionals are able to download BIM Smart Objects for all product groups in Revit family *.rfa, and also in *.txt and *.ifc which are facilitating the use of those products.
On its website, Şişecam enables users to filter products for BIM Smart Objects and download BIM files of the most suitable products for their projects. A user guide containing detailed information on the model structure and use of BIM Smart Objects is also available on Şişecam's website: duzcam.sisecam.com/en/architectural-glass/bim-smart-objects Also, users can easily download Şişecam’s BIM Smart Objects for their projects at bimobject.com/en/sisecam-flat-glass.
