MetalTech-USA, a premier distributor and specialty fabricator of eco-friendly architectural metals, is proud to announce a partnership with Autodesk Seek in developing Revit models. These BIM files, developed in Autodesk Revit, contain both visual and numerical descriptions of their physical counterparts for use as digital elements in building simulations. Autodesk Seek is in the final stages of creating digital models for MetalTech-USA. Users will soon be able to download MetalTech’s adaptive roofing and façade components and correspondingly select the desired MetalTech-USA EcoChoice™ material. Metal finishing capabilities such as standard Prisma™ patterns and customizable PixArt™ functionality will also be showcased for design inspiration.

The utilization of BIM allows AEC (Architects, Engineers, and Construction) professionals to develop drawings that contain property information about every component within the building. This innovative capability can significantly reduce costs by permitting the user to make and assess design choices in the initial phases of the design process. In the same way that CAD drawings simplified and expedited the design process, BIM is the next evolution. Seek offers intuitive product search capabilities directly within Revit for simple integration of MetalTech-USA’s products into the user’s project.
