News – 04/11/2016 NBS BIM Library
We are very pleased to announce record uk's BIM Objects are live on the NBS National BIM Library. They can be found here: https://www.nationalbimlibrary.com/Search?page=1&searchTerm=record%20uk%20ltd&facet=nQJqnQ
BIM stands for Building Information Modelling which is a process involving the generation and management of 3D digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of items and places. These digital representations of our doors can be used by architects and specifiers to accurately place and scale the product within the digitised building environment.
Traditional building design was largely reliant upon two-dimensional technical drawings (plans, elevations, sections, etc.). Building information modelling extends well beyond this by using the three primary spatial dimensions (width, height and depth) to provide modelling in 3D, with time as the fourth dimension (4D) and cost as the fifth (5D). BIM therefore covers more than just geometry. It also covers spatial relationships, light analysis, geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components (for example, manufacturers' details).
BIM involves representing a design as combinations of "objects" that carry their geometry, relations and attributes so that if a related object is amended, dependent ones will automatically also change. BIM design tools also allow extraction of different views from a building model. Additionally, each model element can carry attributes for costing, selecting and ordering automatically, and order tracking.
