Littleton, MA, July 27, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Stoneyard.com announced today that ARCAT, a major publisher of building product information, has developed and posted on their site, data rich AutoDesk® Revit® BIM objects for each of their natural stone veneer products. These objects are available at no charge.
In addition to creating accurate graphics, ARCAT and Stoneyard.com have added appropriate product data to each object, saving architects and engineers a significant amount of time doing data entry and product research. All of Stoneyard.com’s objects, graphics, and content are uniform and modifiable for ease of use. ARCAT has also embedded links in the objects to Stoneyard.com’s CSI 3-Part specs.
“Architects and designers have unique needs when it comes to the design process. We want to give them all the necessary tools to make specifying our product as easy and painless as possible,” David Croteau, VP of sales at Stoneyard.com.
ARCAT and Stoneyard.com uphold the belief that high quality graphics are only the tip of the building information modeling iceberg, and it is the limitless amount of information held within the model that is driving the AEC community to adopt parametric software platforms such as Revit.
