The new BIM model files for Vetrotech’s fire-rated glass, window, door and framing systems can be accessed via www.vetrotechUSA.com and through Autodesk Seek via http://seek.autodesk.com. These data-rich, intelligent 3-D models comply with the Revit Model Content Style Guide (RMCSG) version 2.1.
“We conducted a survey of architects and over 70% said BIM was very important to them when specifying products,” says Kevin Frisone, National Sales and Marketing Manager for VETROTECH. “We’ve updated and added to the Revit® models available for our fire-rated glass and framing assemblies. We have had BIM models available since 2009 but we’ve increased the quantity of product families available to accommodate our increasing and improved product line.”
