A blog by SIG Design... elZinc® have developed a set of BIM Objects for their most popular façade and roofing systems. Hosted by the popular BIMObject website, objects have been developed for both Autodesk Revit and ArchiCAD.
BIM Objects and technical data are available for:
• Zinc Angle Seam Cladding
• Zinc Façade Panels
• Zinc Flat Lock Cladding
• Pointed Fish Scale Tiles in Zinc
• Rhomboid Tiles in Zinc
• Rounded Fish Scale Tiles in Zinc
• Square Tiles in Zinc
• Zinc Standing Seam Roofing
These objects provide precise technical and specification information about elZinc® products and their different installation systems, as well as objects in 3 levels of drawing detail (LOD 100, 200, 300), helping you to create your digital models with ease.
High quality textures of all elZinc® finishes are included and Revit users can visualise their projects even more realistically by using elZinc® pattern based surfaces. All designed to ensure that your model remains true to the architect’s design intentions.
Established in 2006, Asturiana de Laminados, SA has become one of the world´s main producers of rolled zinc for architectural metal cladding, by virtue of its elZinc® brand. elZinc® is available in more than 40 countries and is supplied in the UK via SIG Zinc & Copper.
