Pella Introduces BIM for Doors and Windows

Three-dimensional (3D) door and window models for use in Building Information Modeling (BIM) projects are now available from Pella.”As we continue to provide the best construction documentation support for our commercial partners, we’ve developed a collection of Pella BIM models so designers can easily incorporate Pella products into their building designs,” says Pella commercial marketing manager Terry Zeimetz, AIA, CSI, CCPR.

The company’s Autodesk® Revit® families are available for use with the Revit Architecture computer software. Revit users may access the products directly from the Revit design application by using the Autodesk Seek Web service and then drag-and-drop the Pella models into their BIM project.

“We frequently include Pella in our commercial and residential projects,” said Mary Scro, AIA, NCARB, and partner with Z+ Architects, an architectural firm in Allendale, N.J. “Having Pella’s BIM models will make our job easier, faster and better, saving us time and money. Plus we can very quickly show our clients different product options.”

Pella’s BIM-ready models are designed to complement other 3D and 2D drawing and specification resources it currently offers including 3D models for GoogleTM SketchUp, 2D drawings in dwg and dxf formats, and three-part specifications in CSI and AIA PRODUCT MASTERSPECTM formats.
