Calmac: Energy Storage System BIM Files

March 7, 2011

Energy Storage System building information modeling (BIM) files are now available on the Autodesk® Seek web service. This allows design professionals to search for and access the company’s building product information and design files from the Seek website or directly from its Autodesk Revit®-based design applications. With the addition of the energy storage models to their building design model, customers are now able to visualize a real-life representation of an energy storage system in the context of a whole building design. By hosting the manufacturer’s Autodesk Revit models, Autodesk Seek provides architects and engineers with predictability and visual context in the placement of energy storage systems in new construction and retrofit projects. Autodesk Seek allows design professionals to search specifically for the building product design files they need - in the form of 3-D models, 2-D drawings, visual images, and part and product specification data. The service includes access to existing content from Autodesk applications and building product manufacturers into a single, unified search experience.
