Shelton, CT, October 26, 2010 — ARCAT, a major publisher of building product information has developed and posted on their site, data rich AutoDesk® Revit® BIM objects for Drexel Metals, LLC. Anyone can use these objects at no charge.
In addition to creating accurate graphics, ARCAT and Drexel have added appropriate product data to each object, saving architects and engineers a significant amount of time doing data entry and product research. All of Drexel’s objects, graphics and content, are uniform and modifiable for ease of use.
In addition to product information, ARCAT has embedded links in the objects to Drexel’s CSI 3-Part specs. ARCAT & Drexel Metals, LLC uphold the belief that high quality graphics are only the tip of the building information modeling iceberg, and it is the limitless amount of information held within the model that is driving the AEC community to adopt parametric software platforms such as Revit.

More about BIM:
Building information modeling covers geometry, spatial relationships, light analysis, geographic information, quantities and properties of building components (for example manufacturers’ details). BIM can be used to demonstrate the entire building life cycle, including the processes of construction and facility operation. Quantities and shared properties of materials can be extracted easily. Scopes of work can be isolated and defined. Systems, assemblies and sequences can be shown in a relative scale with the entire facility or group of facilities.
