K-array announced that it is now present on BIM.archiproducts, the Archiproducts reference platform that provides direct access to the largest BIM and CAD file database in the world in serving as a search engine for architecture and design products. The company has been on Archiproducts since 2016.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has proven to be an important tool for architects and it allows users to involve clients, collaborators and other stakeholders in the design and creation of built environments from the earliest stages. For acoustics, the company states that using BIM will further reinforce the importance of sound and why designers should consider audio from the very beginning of project designs since it has a large impact on the venue’s environment.
K-array loudspeakers and amplifiers are found on the portal by browsing through the application categories. STUDIO MAX 3D files, DXF files, material library files and BIM manual files can then be downloaded directly into the project design, helping designers to determine the appropriate loudspeaker system as well as to help ensure proper cable management among all electronic systems. Archiproducts also offers a Revit plugin so that users can access their libraries without having to browse the sites directly from the drawing program, and ARCHICAD files will be available on the portal in the upcoming month.
The Archiproducts project files are then shareable with all project collaborators and are characterized by the badge “Featured by BIM.archiproducts” that certifies they satisfy technical and regulatory criteria such as geometric parameters, consistency of the model with reality, the integrity of alphanumeric data and their computation.
