STEVENSVILLE, Md. — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the A/V, communications, and security industries, is proud to announce that they have teamed with Autodesk to provide Building Information Modeling (BIM) content for many of its most popular products.
"BIM technology and acceptance has grown significantly over the past several years," says Keith Fulmer, President of Video Mount Products. "The addition of BIM content to the AutoDesk Seek repository is not just another tool in the toolbox, but a viable solution supporting the architectural, engineering, and contracting communities."
In addition to being hosted on AutoDesk Seek, the content will also be available through InfoComm iQ as well as available for download at the videomount.com website. More than 30 BIM models are currently available for VMP products, including models for flat panel mounts, equipment racks, projector mounts, and non-penetrating roof mounts.
Traditional building design has been largely reliant upon two-dimensional drawings (i.e. plans, elevations, etc.) whereas Building Information Modeling extends this beyond 3D to a virtual "5D" platform by enhancing the three primary spatial dimensions (width, height, and depth) with time as the fourth dimension and cost as the fifth, making the use of BIM a crucial factor for design, implementation, and sustainability with equal importance placed upon manpower and profitability.
"BIM allows all the necessary elements to be integrated into a project during its initial planning stages throughout and flow through to proposed future development, before a hammer or nail are first ever used for in the project," Fulmer continued. "By utilizing VMP's BIM via models, videomount.com, all the knowledge necessary in real-time '5D' to make for a successful end-result via the sharing of electronic data between all parties is at the users' fingertips. This results in more efficient and cost-effective planning and preemptive problem solving in real-time '5D'."
