Building Information Modeling, commonly referred to as BIM, is the digital modeling process that has revolutionized planning, construction, and maintenance of buildings. Now, your specific Aritco lift designs can be saved as BIM files which import straight into your CAD software.
BIM Files Now in LiftGuide
Import your project-specific Aritco lift design straight into your CAD software with LiftGuide’s new BIM file feature.
Aritco + BIM = New Possibilities!
This new feature makes planning for and placing an Aritco platform lift in drawings for a new building smoother than ever by making it easy to create 3D models of project-specific lifts. The BIM files will be available via the Aritco LiftGuide where you can tinker with myriad design aspects before generating the files.
Currently, creation of BIM files is only available for the Aritco PublicLift Access, but more models will follow shortly.
How does it work?
Once you have finished designing your lift in the LiftGuide, a button named “Generate BIM files” will take you to a menu where some final selections need to be made before your project-specific BIM files are ready for download. The files are available in Revit format as well as the general IFC4 format which can be used with any CAD software.
The BIM files will represent an actual configuration of your lift and include design features such as the exact measurements, placement of the electrical cabinet, door type, door size, and the fixing points for the lift, bringing them straight into your, or your architect’s, CAD software drawings.
Planning and installing your Aritco lift has never been easier. Head over to the LiftGuide and try the new BIM feature out!
Please keep in mind that it is currently only available for the Aritco PublicLift Access.
