With the new product configurator, planned lift systems can now be displayed as a finished 3D BIM model - an important support for all specialised trade partners, planners and architects.
With the online configurator, a finished 3D view of the lift system can be created in just a few minutes. "For specialised trade partners, this means important support in customer consulting and order processing. Architects and planners additionally benefit from the drawing creation, which can be individually adapted to the plan, as well as from the plausibility check," says Christian Hofer, product manager at Ascendor. With the BIM model, Ascendor provides standardised data according to international standards. Access to the BIM model from different 3D planning software is language-independent. This makes it clear how the lift will look in the building.
The interactive configurator is loaded with logics that provide a variety of options for dynamically adapting the lift. The online BIM tool provides 155 different export formats, including STEP, DXF, DWG and many more. The drawing programmes Allplan, Spirit, Autodesk Revit, Bentley, MagiCAD, SketchUp, Grahisoft Archicad and PaletteCAD are supported in a total of eight languages. The portal acts as a hub across languages, file formats and drawing programmes, thus ensuring standardised data exchange. In the future, further application areas such as virtual reality, augmented reality or holography and rendering are possible.
