BIM instructional video published by Kawneer

Glazing systems specialist Kawneer has launched a BIM video.

 Hot on the heels of the launch of its BIM capability, leading architectural aluminium systems supplier Kawneer has released an online video showing how to incorporate one of its BIM models, hosted on the bimstore website, into a building design.

The 10-minute step-by-step guide provides specifiers with a complete walkthrough of how to incorporate Kawneer’s AA®541 casement window* into a typical project, including into curtain walling.

Viewers are shown how to download the BIM component in Revit (IFC files are available on request) from www.kawneer.co.uk, and how to select desired types, copy to clipboard and paste into the drawing. Details regarding ironmongery and colour options are also shown.

As well as the AA®541 casement window, Kawneer’s BIM portfolio also includes the AA®100 and AA®110 curtain walling, with 50mm and 65mm sightlines respectively, AA®542 pivot and AA®543 tilturn windows*, and series 190 heavy-duty and 350 severe-duty commercial entrance doors.

Kawneer’s BIM models provide users with 3D images of the products as well as the critical COBie data to provide guidance through the whole design and construction process.
