Eaton launches BIM product data for Emergency Lighting Products

Industrial manufacturer now provides Revit, ARCHICAD, Allplan, SketchUp and Tekla for AEC audience

Eaton has expanded its online 3D CAD model service to include 3D BIM data for Emergency Lighting Luminaries. This new capability will significantly simplify the process for Architects and Designers to specify Eaton products into construction projects.

Architects and site planners need to receive the information for their work at the right time, and in the correct BIM format.

Eaton is now providing its Emergency Lighting Luminaires customers with BIM and CAD data in more than 150 popular formats on Eaton’s CAD portal https://eaton-bim.partcommunity.com. To better meet the special requirements of the construction industry, Eaton is including the various Building Information Modeling (BIM) formats also. Thanks to the CADENAS BIMcatalogs.net technology, Eaton’s product models can be downloaded in many of the most popular BIM formats, such as Revit, ARCHICAD, Allplan, SketchUp and Tekla. These native models can be imported directly into their respective designs.

Direct access to Eaton product data from BIM software

The universal BIMcatalogs.net plugin from CADENAS gives architects and planners streamlined access to Eaton BIM data. After installation, they can obtain the desired Eaton product data directly within their BIM design software.  The plugin is available for Revit, ARCHICAD, Allplan, SketchUp or Tekla and is available as a free download at: www.bimcatalogs.net/en/cadapp .

One source for BIM data minimizes maintenance at Eaton

Large construction projects often take a very long time. If there are changes and delays during this time, updating the planned construction elements becomes particularly important. This is where the CADENAS solution supports Eaton emergency lighting: By creating Eaton’s BIM product data with BIMcatalogs.net in a single data source, the maintenance and updating of the data is simplified. The connection between manufacturers and planners is maintained throughout the entire BIM process.
