As Building Information Modelling (BIM) begins to revolutionise the buildings planning process, Schöck is pleased to announce that it is the first manufacturer to present a library of load-bearing thermal insulation elements in the BIM exchange format IFC 2x3.
The new CAD service portal on the Schöck website is available to users and features a selection of Isokorb types K; KXT; KS; and KST. Architects, designers and structural engineers can therefore easily plan in BIM balconies, or other projecting components, using thermal breaks that allow connectivity between concrete-to-concrete; concrete-to-steel; or steel-to-steel applications.
The data can be imported straight into a CAD drawing, downloaded from the internet, or forwarded by email from the platform. To ensure compatibility with as many applications as possible, in addition to the BIM format, 2-D and 3-D files will also be provided for common software programs such as AutoDesk REVIT; AutoCAD; Nemetschek Allplan; and TEKLA Structures.
The provided 3-D formats include AutoCAD > 2000; DXF; DWG; STEP; IGES; and IFC 2x3, together with 2-D data in DWG; DXF; IGES; JPEG; and TIF formats.
