Accurate Perforating offers perforated metal building information modeling (BIM) objects to leverage data for the most commonly used perforated metal patterns. Always a leader in innovation, Accurate Perforating is the first perforated metal manufacturer to embrace this technology for the construction industry. Offering perforated metal BIM objects gives architects a far more efficient and accurate way to visualize building structures with perforated metal inside and out. With these new BIM objects, architects, designers, and contractors can visualize the true nature of perforated metal components in a virtual environment. It opens a world of possibility for anyone hoping to incorporate perforated metals.
Below, learn more about BIM, how it is used and what Accurate Perforating can do for you.
What is BIM
BIM essentially takes traditional drawings to the next level. Previously, architecture and design was limited to a single set of drawings, first on paper and then generated by 2D computer software — a limited process where only a single person could make modifications at any given time. Both processes were far from an efficient process, passing drawings from person to person or machine to machine.
BIM is collaborative. With a comprehensive system of computer models accessible by multiple users/multiple designers, architects and engineers can work together on the same document. Consequently, BIM construction and design projects are far more cohesive. Accurate Perforating is the first perforated metal company to embrace this new technology.
The Benefits of BIM Design
Perforated metal BIM design has the potential to streamline the design process for you and perhaps reveal possibilities you hadn’t considered. Here are a few reasons BIM is a game-changer for the construction industry:
- Control — As a system with comprehensive features, BIM gives an unprecedented level of control over projects from start to finish. That means an entire history of the project is saved, allowing designers to view multiple design options and previous versions simultaneously, all while minimizing the possibility of file corruption.
- Creativity — There are many ways BIM inspires creativity. For starters, the increased collaboration opens new lines of communication at every level. It also gives you the tools to simulate and visualize any given project idea. Say you prefer a specific perforated copper panel but you need context; BIM can immediately display how it would actually appear. As a result, the designer can make more informed decisions.
Why is BIM Good for Perforated Metal?
Perforated metal designs are unique in that they combine both functionality and aesthetics. As such, it’s important to get it right. BIM gives you the tools to plan your perforated metal project while also considering such details as light flow, shadowing, screening, transparency, privacy, aesthetics, and much more. With BIM, you know exactly what you’re getting so you can plan for the best possible configuration.
