3D BIM Now Available Online for Clopay Commercial Door Models
CINCINNATI -- Clopay Commercial Products is now offering 3-D B.I.M. (Building Information Modeling) online for its 903 series, 3200 series, 3700 series and 500 series doors.
The software enables architects, specifiers and engineers to render a building in 3-D in order to identify interference areas that often go undetected in 2-D drawings. As a result, the issues can be addressed in advance, eliminating costly change orders and project delays once the job is underway.
All B.I.M. models are parametric in design, which allows characteristics like door size and track option to be easily adjusted within the model to ensure that proper clearances are maintained in accordance with Clopay specifications.
The model also contains a convenient direct link to Clopay written specifications so specifiers can easily and accurately describe the Clopay door best suited to the application.
Clopay B.I.M. files are created using the 2011 version of Autodesk Revit Architecture and are available at www.clopaycommercial.com.
