BIM - Building Information Modeling

JORDAHL is offering libraries of smart objects which present products in an object-oriented format for building information modelling (BIM).

In the smart object library of anchor channels for BIM, anchor channels are assigned to a family. Here seven different profile sizes in the standard lengths of between 100 mm and 6,000 mm currently result in a range of 80 anchor channels. In addition, there are the T-bolts appropriate for each in various materials and strength grades. Around 4,000 different markings are filed in the anchor channels' product family.
What benefits can be gained by using BIM with anchor channels and T-bolts as smart objects? A major advantage of BIM is the ability to quickly and reliably carry out modifications to a project. Previously every anchor channel had to be adjusted individually in the event of modifications. This approach is not only time-consuming, but also prone to errors. With BIM, any number of anchor channels can be produced en masse.

The smart objects library for BIM is currently being supplemented at JORDAHL with more products, including JORDAHL® punching shear reinforcements. JORDAHL® shear connectors JDSD are already available as smart objects. These products can also be downloaded for free from the JORDAHL website.

Leidsche Rijn Centrum (BIM project)

The whole project was planned with the Building Information Modeling (BIM) method from the planning phase to implementation. The construction process was digitalised as far as possible: from 3D simulation, to design, to data exchange (with IFC files) of all parties involved.

BIM files for anchor channels on DigiPara® Liftdesigner

JORDAHL® anchor channels can be found in the product library of the
DigiPara® Liftdesigner Software for lift constructions.

The DigiPara® Liftdesigner is a software for efficient planning and the configuration of elevators and escalators. It consists of predefined elevator parameters, component structure and elevator logic. It combines all the important elevator information to quickly design 2D elevator drawings and 3D elevator models.

The DigiPara® Liftdesigner provides a very extensive product library with over 70 suppliers. You can now find JORDAHL® anchor channels as well on the software.
