Post Time:Nov 12,2013Classify:Industry NewsView:109

Wausau Window and Wall Systems, Wausau, Wis.,offers architects, engineers and designers 3D models and 2D drawings of its most popular window and curtain wall systems through Autodesk Seek, according to an April 1 company release. The Autodesk Seek service helps manufacturers present Building Information Modeling-ready product information, making 3D models and other product design files available on millions of desktops, directly from their Autodesk design applications.

"For years, we have offered downloadable 2D drawings and also provided project teams with dynamic, 3D models. Now, with Autodesk Seek, we can share a broad range of 2D and BIM-ready 3D models from our Advantage by Wausau collection of standard, high-performance, quick-ship window and curtain wall systems, interior trim and related products," said Steve Fronek, vice president of technical services, Wausau, in the release. Autodesk Seek users can obtain accurate, information-rich results, while working in design applications such as AutoCAD or Revit Architecture Software. "By making Wausau's products available in the BIM process through Autodesk Seek, project teams can experience real-time visualization of building geometry and geography of the proposed project, as well as quantities, qualities and spatial relationships of its building components," Fronek said, in the release."This helps the teams to better document their projects, and evaluate their sustainable building and structural design alternatives. Decisions made during this early stage in design often save money and time, especially when compared to the potential cost of changes once the materials and people are in the field,"Fronek adds,As a participant in Autodesk Seek Wausau is participating in a forum for architects, engineers and designers to communicate with each other, share design files, and take advantage of the wealth of product information consolidated from manufacturers in a single, online source. Along with the 3D models and 2D drawings, Autodesk Seek includes Wausau's product specifications and literature, technical guides and performance information, and images.
