Bell & Gossett Announces 3D BIM Library
ITT Bell & Gossett announced a new extensive online library of 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) content files in Autodesk Revit 2010. A total of 113 Revit families and 5,252 types have been created for the following HVAC product lines:
- Pumps: VSX, Series 1510, 1531, 80, 80-SC, 60, and
- Pump Accessories: Suction Diffusers & Triple
- Engineered Specialties: Rolairtrols and B&D
- U-Tube Heat Exchangers
Bell & Gossett contracted with CADworks to transform its HVAC product drawing files into Revit families, which are parametric components that serve as the basis for all designs. Users can select the files directly in Autodesk Revit with a one time download of the Bell & Gossett Content Module at http://www.cadworks.net/bellgossett and picking the appropriate models from the Content Library.
Users can easily access integrated content in Autodesk Revit, eliminating the need to search and download files from external Web sites. Also, changes to designs are automatically updated across the entire project and are easy to track; there is no need to re-enter information.
