PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA (May 19, 2020) – Knotwood, manufacturer of leading woodlike aluminum architectural systems, has announced a partnership with BIMsmith, the leading building product research platform, to provide a new suite of Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools for building professionals.
The partnership involves the development of digital BIM assets for Knotwood products. As information-rich, photorealistic 3D representations, these assets can be used in architectural design software and make it easy for architects to incorporate Knotwood finishes into their designs and eventually their projects. All of Knotwood’s BIM resources are built to integrate with Autodesk Revit, the leading architectural design software.
As a result of the partnership, Knotwood’s BIM content is also now available globally through BIMsmith Market, the leading product research platform for architects to discover new products and download BIM assets for their projects. It also is available on BIMsmith Forge, a powerful cloud application that enables architects to configure multi-layer walls, floors, ceilings, and roofs for their BIM projects.
“Knotwood products have always been a hit with the architectural community, combining aesthetics and durability,” said Sarah O’Neal, Product Marketing Manager at Omnimax International. “We’re thrilled to provide these BIM resources that will further equip architects to creatively integrate Knotwood products into their projects.”
“Knotwood provides building professionals with the opportunity to flex their design creativity with a reliable and versatile product,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO of BIMsmith. “We’re excited to welcome them to the BIMsmith platform.”
