Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
Acme Brick Company is again leading the brick industry with the introduction of a software tool for architects that delivers BIM (Building Information Modeling) data directly to an Autodesk® Revit® project.
Acme BIM Online builds on two existing visualization tools hosted at Acme’s website, brick.com: Masonry Designer and Design Online. Like these two products, AcmeBIM Online allows users to select brick from a visual catalog, by name or by color family. After making a selection, users can preview brick as a simulated panel or building elevation – with the option of changing mortar colors.
BIM-compliant technical data is available for every brick in the AcmeBIM Online database. Compiled in 36 different categories, BIM data can be imported directly into a Revit project using the plug-in version. Users of the AcmeBIM Online’s Web version can download BIM data as a standard text file in .CSV format.
Links to three-part specifications are also included in both versions of AcmeBIM Online. To launch the Web version of AcmeBIM Online, please visit: http://brick.com/acmebimonline
Acme Brick Company, the largest U.S. brick company, is a member of the Berkshire Hathaway family of companies headed by famed investor Warren Buffett. The company celebrated its 120th birthday on April 17, 2011.
