ELGIN, Ill., May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Anguleris Technologies® has launched a new platform, BIMsmith® Forge™, for designers and architects to streamline product selection throughout the design process.
Designers and architects utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) have gained a new design aid in Anguleris Technologies' cloud based platform, BIMsmith Forge. BIMsmith Forge provides a product neutral space for hundreds of standalone products to come together to form complete assemblies, just like they do in the real world. Building components can be inserted into other design platforms such as Autodesk® Revit®, complete with the exact size, product and finish that will be in the built project. The platform allows the user to save design combinations for later use and to easily modify designs.
"This is a completely new way to specify real products within Building Information Modeling," CEO Benjamin Glunz states. "Architects and designers waste a lot of time searching multiple sites for products that work together. We've created a platform that will save time and money by putting all of that information in one place. BIM Content, details, 3-part specs and cut sheets for multiple products are found and aggregated with just a few clicks."
BIMsmith Forge is free for designers and architects. Launch partners include wall, ceiling and floor industry leaders such as Sherwin Williams®, Homasote® and National Gypsum®. The number of companies and products in the BIMsmith family is continually growing as companies sign on and their product galleries increase.
Anguleris Technologies is the construction industry's virtual product placement® expert, providing manufacturers with holistic Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions through the industry's foremost BIM platform, Autodesk Revit.
With a 4-point BIM strategy and its flagship product BIMsmith, Anguleris cultivates global business-to-business relationships between architects, designers and builders with data-rich digital representations of real products. Through every stage of project development, Anguleris helps to shape the future of building technology, placing its clients at the forefront of Building Information Modeling innovation.
