1,000 of the company’s ventilation products are 3D modelled in MagiCloud BIM library

Swedish company Systemair, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of ventilation products to the building industry, is using MagiCAD – and now the cloud-based tool MagiCloud – to model all of its product inventory, upwards of 1,000 products.

As designers model large, public buildings like hospitals, schools or shopping centres in AutoCAD and Revit they can drop Systemair products directly into their building design projects.

“If Systemair’s products are modelled in 3D with all technical information sitting alongside the model, designers can literally plug models of our products directly into their plans. When plans are complete, a shopping list can be created with our products on it,” says Mikael Karlsmyr, Manager Market Communication, Systemair. This functionality gives an advantage for Systemair products over any ventilation component not included in the BIM library.

“Sometimes we get a request directly for a product. Within two weeks the product can be modelled in 3D and all its accompanying technical data uploaded into the library.” From Systemair’s viewpoint, a BIM-based approach also enables them to support customers after the sale. “Having detailed technical product information in the cloud makes it easier for customers after delivery of the product. Instructions, spare parts orders, and other customer services can be included. By using BIM, we can be more supportive of our customers,” concludes Karlsmyr.
