CRANSTON, R.I. - Taco Inc. is making its commercial pump lines available through the Autodesk Seek Web service. According to the company, this will enable mechanical design professionals to search for, and access, Taco’s data-rich, high-quality digital design files directly from AutoCAD and the Revit desktop design applications for Building Information Modeling (BIM) or through the Web.

Three file formats will be available via Autodesk Seek: Revit (.rfa), AutoCAD 2D, and AutoCAD 3D. The Taco files can also be accessed using any mobile smart device.

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.

The company’s KS pump line is the first product line to be made available through Autodesk. KS vertical split coupled inline pumps are designed for optimum performance and ease of installation and maintenance. They are ideal for HVAC and industrial applications. Additional Taco commercial pump lines will become available as AutoDesk Revit files follow.

With the addition of Taco’s product information to Autodesk Seek, HVAC system design and building construction professionals practicing the BIM process will be able to more easily select Taco pump products earlier in their design projects.

“It is increasingly important for design professionals and builders to be able to rely on high quality data as the AEC industry moves to BIM,” said Jeff Wright, senior director of content solutions for Autodesk.
