Vitro America announced it now offers building information modeling (BIM) data on a range of its glass systems, which can be accessed via its library of BIM objects through the ARCAT® website.  "BIM is rapidly becoming the way architectural design gets done," says Alice Dickerson, director of sales and marketing for Vitro America.

"The three-dimensional, detailed product models allow building professionals to quickly specify our products in their buildings and to share common data among all of the players. Most design professionals are familiar with ARCAT for finding specification data and other information to make informed product selections, so we thought it would be an especially effective platform for placing our BIM models."

BIM product models are available for the company's America's Envision™ glass systems, including all-glass entrances; sliding, stacking, and clad doors; glass walls; handrail systems; and shower enclosures. The company says it will continue to add other architectural products to its library of BIM models, which can be accessed in a range of file formats such as Autodesk® Revit®, Google™ SketchUp and Bentley Architecture.
