Make it easy!
With the launch of Building Information Modeling (BIM) the requirements placed on the product data are also increasing. For instance for the integrated approach to planning along with geometric information, connection data and technical and commercial information are also required.
Starting immediately, KEMPER is meeting these high demands on nearly all its products with the aid of Dendrit GENERATION, an add-in for Autodesk Revit. GENERATION provides the MEP engineers with extraordinary integration of KEMPER products in his BIM processes. There is no longer any need to extensively search for RFA files (Revit Family) in the Internet. With the “Find” function, a filter based on the technical product characteristics, valves for example can be specifically selected based on their function, nominal width, material and/or connection type.
In Dendrit GENERATION the product families are simply dragged and dropped right from the results list into the drawing area. Here, the “family” is positioned for instance in the pipework with the accustomed Revit functions and suitable transitions are immediately placed in the connection data. As an alternative, a search can be made in the stored manufacturer catalogues. Technical consultants who use the language package in AutoDesk Revit are supported by GENERATION with completely localised desktops and standards in COBie for UK and Dendrit for German-language projects. The ingenious twist here is the family update function for data standards and product information of previously placed products during runtime: planning is as usual in German; delivery is in English according to the COBie standard! Nothing contradicts the idea of the Building Information Modeling more than working with outdated or redundant data. That is why the GENERATION update-center always brings the placed products and applications up to the current state of development.
