“When coupled with compatibility across the three main BIM software platforms, InPro offers a win-win for architects and contractors.”
Milwaukee, MN (PRWEB) December 28, 2009
On January 15, 2010 architects and contractors will be able to download Building Information Modeling (BIM) objects for InPro Corporation’s interior wall protection and door protection products, privacy curtains and cubicle track systems, commercial signs, expansion joints, and decorative surface vanity and countertops. InPro’s BIM library will be accessed through the company’s website inprocorp.com/bimready, the Autodesk Seek search engine, the Sweets database and on CADdetails.com.
Architects and designers have asked for it and InPro Corporation is answering the call. InPro Corporation will be the first company in its industry to create virtually its entire product offering in manageably sized BIM objects. InPro’s BIM library will be compatible with all three major BIM software platforms: Autodesk® Revit®, Graphisoft® ArchiCAD, and Bentley®.
To meet the needs of architects and contractors, InPro will produce two levels of BIM object sophistication. “In planning our BIM library, we consulted with several architects and contractors to determine how they use the objects,” said Larry Dronek, Vice President of Marketing for InPro. “They told us they don’t like BIM objects that are too complex or ‘loaded,’ which slows their system performance. But, they do want significant detail available when the more-advanced design stages call for it.
“So, we are producing BIM object files at two different visibility levels, and they will be available on Seek, Sweets.com, our website and CADdetails.com,” Dronek added. “When coupled with compatibility across the three main BIM software platforms, InPro offers a win-win for architects and contractors.”
InPro Corporation is promoting the launch of its BIM library with the BIM with Rims™ Sweepstakes in which qualified candidates can register to win a 2011 Harley-Davidson® Heritage Softail® Motorcycle. The entry form for the sweepstakes can be found at inprocorp.com/bimwithrims.
