MIAMI - Industry leader InPro Corporation today announced it has finished Phase 1 of its BIM library with the completion of its entire line modeled in standard resolution Autodesk Revit objects. In addition, the company will incorporate its new BioPolyPETG+TM material specifications in all applicable interior protection BIM objects by July 1st. InPro made these announcements here at the 2010 American Institute of Architects Convention and Expo.
To meet the needs of architects and contractors, InPro committed to producing two levels of BIM object sophistication. "In planning our BIM library, we consulted with several architects and contractors to determine how they use the objects," said Larry Dronek, vice president of marketing for InPro. "They told us they don't like BIM objects that are too complex or oaded,' which slows their system performance. But, they do want significant detail available when the more-advanced design stages call for it.
"We've now completed what we're calling tandard resolution' BIM files for basic design work. We'll now move on to complete Phase 2, which will include high-resolution Revit models, as well as the build out of Graphisoft ArchiCAD and Bentley BIM objects," Dronek said. He said the company expects Phase 2 completion sometime in the fall of this year.
InPro BIM objects can be downloaded from Autodesk Seek, CADdetails.com and www.inprocorp.com/bimready.
Dronek also added that InPro will add its new BioPolyPETG+TM material specifications and information in all applicable door and wall protection BIM objects by July 1st. "We launched a revolutionary new material for interior protection products back in March. We're now incorporating BioPolyPETG+TM material attributes and specifications in our BIM objects. On July 1st, architects will simply point and click to download the industry's greenest BIM objects," he said.
"Look around Division 10. No other company in our industry offers the breadth of BIM objects that we do," Dronek concluded.
