Business Needs

A leading furniture manufacturer situated in Canada, faced challenges of displaying their range of products on their website as per actual dimensions, with full detail, variations and sub variations of material, size, color, shape etc. In order to align their design and modeling practices with other construction stakeholders, they needed to make their products part of the “new” BIM standards.

Challenges

  • Developing a fully functioning product from scratch in Revit while minimizing the file size.
  • Maintaining accurate geometry of the product and including a standardized format (.rfa).
  • Maintaining product integrity as per Autodesk Seek Standard.

Our Solutions & Approach

Revit Families of furniture products with exact product information and details required for material and finishes.

Business Impact

Hitech CADD Services provided more than 550 Revit Families of furniture products with exact product information and details required for material and finishes. The furniture manufacturer now had a whole range of furniture products on the company’s website with variations and sub variations of shape, size, color, material etc.

The manufacturer was able to create a library of products with all relevant data etc. that could be used as and when needed.
