New BIM roofing tool launches


Building information modeling (BIM) provider BIMsmith has released a new addition to its platform that will make roofing assembly easier for architects, contractors, designers and other industry pros.

The free, cloud-based tool seamlessly combines roofing products and elements into one complete BIM-ready assembly for Revit and other programs. The platform allows industry pros to combine manufacturer specific and generic product data assemblies as they will appear in built projects. The roofing tool joins the company's current lineup of wall, floor and ceiling assemblies. Through the BIMSmith platform, professionals can build, collaborate and share their product data seamlessly among key stakeholders.

BIMsmith has partnered with industry leaders in the roofing vertical to provide branded product data from manufacturers like Redbuilt, GAF, ICP, Akzo Nobel, Fabral and Weyehaeuser.

"BIMsmith has led the charge for web based BIM data creation for years," BIMsmith CEO, Benjamin Glunz stated. "Roofing is absolutely critical to any building project," notes BIMsmith CEO Benjamin Glunz. "We are thrilled to provide this critical missing piece to the puzzle for the betterment of the BIM and building science communities."
