Systemair, a ventilation provider, has announced its North American product line is now available through the Autodesk Seek web service, allowing design professionals to search for and access the company’s building product information and design files from the Seek website or directly from their Revit-based design applications. With the addition of Systemair models to their building design model, customers are now able to visualize a real-life representation of their ventilation system in the context of a whole building design. By hosting Systemair’s Autodesk Revit models, Autodesk Seek provides architects and engineers with predictability and visual context in the placement of air handling units, fans and air distribution products in new construction and retrofit projects.
“By providing 3-D models, architects and engineers are better equipped to visualize how our products fit into a project long before a structure is even built,” says Rick Caldwell, director of Marketing for Systemair. “By providing compliant Revit models for our fans, air handling units and air distribution products, they are able to integrate our equipment into their BIM projects, easily, accurately and more efficiently. And, with a presence in Autodesk Seek, our products will now be at the fingertips of millions of architects and engineers as they design.”
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. Architects and engineers can now preview 3D representations of Systemair’s product designs, from structural composition to the way components fit together in the field, and can be confident that Systemair’s models are compliant with Seek’s stringent guidelines. This capability makes for better informed decisions based on more detailed project data during the conceptual design process and throughout the project lifespan.
