Metalumen Expands Commitment to Architecture and Design Community Through BIMsmith Partnership
Metalumen Manufacturing, Inc., a major North American manufacturer of premium lighting solutions, has partnered with BIMsmith, a leading online platform for building professionals, to provide digital Building Information Modeling (BIM) content for its lighting solutions to thousands of architects and designers.
Metalumen serves a variety of markets, including commercial, education, healthcare, and transportation. By partnering with BIMsmith to extend its reach into the architecture and design community, Metalumen helps ensure that digital models of its products are accessible to professionals from all industries and for any application.
As part of the partnership, Metalumen digital models are now available on BIMsmith Market, a free online platform for architects and designers to discover and download building product data. Adding its products to BIMsmith Market eliminates the need for a designer to leave his or her ordinary workflow to find BIM content for Metalumen products. Now users can download Metalumen product models, including cut sheets, specifications, and other product data, with just a few clicks, simplifying a multistep process down into one. All Metalumen product models are compatible with the industry standard in building design software, Autodesk Revit.
“Design is at the core of Metalumen; the focus on how lighting transforms the architectural environment,” said Monika Lojek, Marketing Manager for Metalumen Manufacturing, Inc. “Working with architects and designers to make designing with Metalumen easier is a natural fit for us.”
“The right choice of lighting has the power to completely change the end result of a project,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO of BIMsmith. “We are excited to provide the BIMsmith architectural community with lighting solutions from a brand as esteemed as Metalumen.”
