3M Company, well known for its vast portfolio of high-quality fire protection products, introduces 3M Fire Protection Revit Building Information Modeling (BIM) Objects. These new objects support architectural designs using the 3D BIM approach. Now architects can easily integrate 3M Fire Protection products into their 3D design specifications. By integrating into the total 3D building design, 3M Fire Protection Revit BIM Objects help streamline communication and intent in downstream activities, while supporting the spatial visibility of the through penetrations, joints, and duct wrap fire protection systems in a building.
The new 3M Fire Protection Revit BIM Objects are available in myriad categories, including through penetrations in concrete floor, concrete brick walls and gypsum walls, construction joints, head-of-wall perimeter joints, as well as duct wrap protection systems.
3M Fire Protection Revit BIM Objects are content-rich, face-based systems that are fully integrated with Revit families and therefore, can be placed in industry-standard BIM reference models. They are product systems/assemblies-based BIM models, as opposed to product models, and therefore provide uniquely applicable BIM options specific to fire stop. Additionally, 3Mís new Fire Protection Revit BIM Objects incorporate shared parameters, which give architects and contractors the ability to create schedules and quality take-offs.
