App offers ‘seamless workflow integration’ of building product data for architects, designers and engineers
Dodge Data & Analytics forthcoming Sweets app for AutoCAD – which follows a version for Revit released earlier this year – is designed to give architects and design professionals integrated access to an extensive building product database. Users can search, select and tag product data from more than 30,000 listed products directly into their designs.
The app is designed to bring building product manufacturers closer to designers and architects by integrating product selection directly into design workflow.
The Sweets database includes CAD files, specs and manufacturer’s BIM content, including finishes, masonry, plumbing, wood, plastics, composites, metals, concrete, earthwork, exterior improvements, utilities, specialties and more.
In addition to Allegion and C/S Group, early implementers in the building product manufacturer community include Sloan, Armstrong Ceilings, Excel Dryer, and Maxxon Corporation.
By mid-June, Dodge Data & Analytics says Sweets will contain more than 50,000 products and by the end of September, product count will exceed 100,000.
