The Schöck Isokorb range is now BIM planning compliant
As Building Information Modelling (BIM) begins to revolutionise the buildings planning process, Schöck is pleased to announce that it is the first manufacturer to present a library of load-bearing thermal insulation elements in the BIM exchange format IFC 2x3.
The new CAD service portal on the Schöck website is available to users and features a selection of Isokorb types K; KXT; KS; and KST. Architects, designers and structural engineers can therefore easily plan in BIM balconies, or other projecting components, using thermal breaks that allow connectivity between concrete-to-concrete; concrete-to-steel; or steel-to-steel applications.
The data can be imported straight into a CAD drawing, downloaded from the internet, or forwarded by email from the platform. To ensure compatibility with as many applications as possible, in addition to the BIM format, 2-D and 3-D files will also be provided for common software programs such as AutoDesk REVIT; AutoCAD; Nemetschek Allplan; and TEKLA Structures.
The provided 3-D formats include AutoCAD > 2000; DXF; DWG; STEP; IGES; and IFC 2x3, together with 2-D data in DWG; DXF; IGES; JPEG; and TIF formats.
