MILFORD, OH -- (Marketwire) -- Sep 13, 2012 -- CADENAS PARTsolutions, a global provider of online product catalogs, configurators and 3D CAD download technology, announces the launch of the newest output format; Revit® by Autodesk®. With Building Information Modeling (BIM) designers, engineers and purchasers in the architecture, building technology and support structure planning industries can now download 3D CAD models and integrate them directly into their design in the native Revit® format.
CADENAS PARTsolutions Revit® support allows engineers and designers to save countless hours they would normally spend creating the various standard components in their designs; they can now source and download the BIM files directly from the manufacturer. Additionally, by adding Revit® to their CAD selection, industrial manufacturers can continue to ride the wave of BIM popularity and see greater visibility with a larger audience.
Known as an international standard for 3D modeling by the architecture and engineering industries, Autodesk® Revit® is designed specifically for Building Information Modeling or BIM. BIM aids building professionals design, build and maintain higher-quality, more energy-efficient buildings by using intelligent models to gain project insight through simulation and analysis to predict performance prior to construction. Additionally, BIM allows for greater detail of product data integrated directly into the model, including specific item information and features. The Revit® format supports both 3D parametric models as well as 2D drafting designs allowing it to be utilized by a variety of designers.
"By adding Revit® to our arsenal of capabilities, we really achieve two objectives," says Rob Zesch, President of CADENAS PARTsolutions. "First, we are able to help industrial manufacturers reach a new audience of design professionals who work exclusively in the Revit® and BIM formats, which will significantly boost their sales. Second, we're able to fill a need and better support a much broader segment of manufacturers who primarily produce products for the architecture, structural engineering and interior design communities."
