Press Release   •   Aug 24, 2012 13:30 BST

VELFAC choose BIMobject® as a partner for their development and publishing of their latest BIM objects, that are available today at the bimobject.com product portal.

VELFAC is a subsidiary of VKR Holding, a worldwide group of companies who supply materials which bring daylight, fresh air and a better environment into people’s everyday life. VELFAC has been designing and manufacturing windows for over 60 years and currently produces 13,000 units per week.

VELFAC supplies a wide range of high-quality Scandinavian windows that are made from virtually knot-free pine. The wood is sustainably sourced from Northern-European forests and is of the finest-quality – as the trees are left to mature slowly. All surfaces are treated with 100 per cent water-based acrylic paint/lacquer and the edges and joints are smooth to the touch.

The BIM objects that are developed for VELFAC are equipped with parametrics (variations), fabrication constraints and real life functionality. They can show a detail level that enables sections in both 3D and 2D in as low as 1:5 scale. The 24 VELFAC product families represent several thousands of actual product variations, that can be specified and manufactured by VELFAC.

At BIMobject® we develop and publish real objects from real products, made with the highest quality and always in cooperation with the actual manufacturer. The BIM objects help designers and Architects to make better design, faster evaluation of functionality and better understanding when choosing the right product for the job. It also assist in increased communication in the BIM processes to enable all stakeholders to get better understanding.

From today on, architects, designer and other BIM professionals can download the 200i, 200 Helo® and 500 product ranges for free as BIM objects to be used in Autodesk Revit and Graphisoft ArchiCAD.

- ”The new VELFAC BIM objects are really state of the art, when it comes to high quality objects for any BIM software. We are grateful for the trust VELFAC have shown us and we are proud of what we have delivered.
