Business Needs

A building product manufacturer for plumbing equipment from France needed to generate Revit libraries for various kitchen and bath equipment. Revit plumbing families would enable the product manufacturer to gain quick modelling through integration in architectural and structural drawings.

Challenges

  • Only 2D drawings were received as input from client, from which a 3D Revit model was to be developed.
  • File was required to be at a minimal size while ensuring accurate product geometry.
  • BIM objects were to be developed in a standardized format to maintain product integrity as per Autodesk Seek Standard.

Our Solutions & Approach

Accurate 3D models with precise geometry of plumbing products as per Autodesk Seek standards

Share Your Thoughts
  • Our Revit drafters collaborated with the manufacturer for design requirements and detailed 2D drawings were created.
  • The engineering data was then integrated to create various family types with different sizes and properties of BIM objects using Revit for the multiple products as required.
  • Accurate 3D models with precise geometry of plumbing products like a faucet, shower, spa and kitchen sink were created in a standardized format as per Autodesk Seek standards.
  • In a duration of 8 months, over 150 Revit Families were created and sent to the client.

Business Impact

With the 150 Revit Families created, Hitech CADD Services facilitated the client to gain quick modelling through readily available BIM data that was used with architectural and structural drawings, resulting in time savings for the client.
