introduces the new Revit plasterboard wall system, Family, a design tool that increases speed of delivery and reduces costs for architects during the design and documentation process.
Revit is a computer driven design tool that allows users to design using both parametric 3D modelling and 2D drafting elements, with ‘Families’ being pre-set libraries comprising of intelligent 3D objects to represent real physical building components such as fire rated wall systems.
An innovation in the Australian plasterboard industry, the Gyprock Revit Family plasterboard wall system offers significant benefits to architects who can now improve productivity through easy retrieval of technically accurate system information, and also save the time traditionally associated with drafting elevations and detail drawings.
Users can select a Gyprock Revit Family component to create a detailed wall system, complete with framing members, insulation and plasterboard, all sized to suit the application and detail-ready in all elevations.
Available from CSR designLINK free of charge, Revit Family enables designers and architects to generate building models with unprecedented levels of detail, in a timely and cost effective manner.
Key benefits of Gyprock Revit Family plasterboard wall system:
- Enables users to create a detailed wall system, all sized to suit the application and detail-ready in all elevations
- Offers improved visualisation and increased co-ordination of construction documents for greater speed of delivery
- Allows embedding and linking of vital information such as vendors for specific materials, location of details and quantities required for estimation and tendering
- Works closely with the fire and acoustic assessments set out in the Red Book Fire and Acoustic Design Guide
Angus Kell, Architect and Manager of designLINK believes that the introduction of the Revit Family system is an important move for Gyprock as it displays leadership by providing high level technical support within the industry during the design and documentation process.
