BIM objects and Visio stencils now available for free download at Leviton website
Melville, New York, - Leviton today announced it will support Building Information Modeling (BIM) by offering a library of free downloadable BIM objects. BIM software creates three-dimensional, dynamic spatial models, and can incorporate detailed product information, quantities, and properties. Leviton's BIM objects are available now at leviton.com/BIM.
BIM objects are the basic elements that make up the foundation of BIM modeling. Leviton's library of objects, which currently includes patch panels, fiber enclosures, wallplates, connectors, and cable management, are available for both Autodesk® Revit® and Bentley's MicroStation® software. Leviton plans on regularly adding new products to the library.
"Leviton's new object library is a response to the rapid growth of BIM use in design and construction projects," said Dennis Manes, senior applications engineer for Leviton Network Solutions. "The enhanced product information tied to each object makes our library valuable to contractors, designers, building owners, and all other stakeholders in a construction project."
In addition to offering BIM objects on its website, Leviton has expanded its selection of free Visio stencils to include new copper and fiber components and Connected Home products, also available for free download. Visio stencils are often used within network diagrams, rack elevations, and other drawings and details found in construction documents.
