(BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING) is an intelligent 3D model based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction professionals the tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.
A BIM model
is a virtual three-dimensional construction site. It can be a building, an infrastructure projects or other smaller or larger projects.
A BIM object
also referred to as a BIM family,is a kind of a building block. Using BIM objects as building blocks, simplifies the process of constructing a BIM model. Examples of BIM objects can be walls, windows or, as in our case, luminaires.
Some of the best BIM objects in the industry
Development of Glamox Luxonic BIM objects
Glamox Luxonic realized early on that the use of 3D construction software for planning and construction of buildings would become increasingly common. In order to meet the expected demand from our customers for 3D objects (see definition in frame), we started a project with the target of offering the best BIM objects in the lighting industry.
After careful assessment, we decided that the software Revit from AutoDesk was the best platform for our BIM files, and we developed our files in close collaboration with Symetri, the Scandinavian provider of the Revit software, to make them among the best in the market. Since 2012, we have offered free BIM files on our web page.
