Building information modelling (BIM) plug-in
Our job does not start nor end with the manufacturing and supply of the right products. We are there from the beginning of the project to help you choose the right product.
Armacell‘s BIM plug-in is designed to help you specify the right thermal and acoustic insulation for your entire ducting and piping system design. Seamlessly integrated in the Autodesk Revit® software, you can model details of your design in 3D to detect any design or logistics issue, reduce addition and alteration works and ultimately improve productivity.
When you are designing the duct- and pipework of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems, you can use BIM to simplify your selection of technical insulation. Often, the equipment such as pipes or ventilation ducts are already decided, and your choice of insulation will depend on various parameters – such as the diameter of the pipe or the operating temperature conditions. Upon reviewing different product materials and catalogues, the product details would then need to be manually entered into the system.
With the new BIM plug-in, product details can be automatically inserted into your drawing, facilitating your planning and design process and reducing the chances of error. Our BIM plug-in helps you to select thermal and acoustic insulation on the Revit software.
Update (31 Jul 2019)
The BIM plug-in has been updated to include support for Autodesk Revit 2020. Please download the latest version (1.1.008) for your use.
