K-array Now Available on Largest BIM Database

BIM archiproducts

K-array has been present on Archiproducts, the most powerful search engine for architecture and design products, since 2016. Now, to meet the demand of most designers and installers, K-array is also present on BIM.archiproducts, Archiproducts’ reference platform that provides direct access to the largest BIM and CAD file database in the world.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become an increasingly important tool for architects and allows users to involve clients, collaborators and other stakeholders in the design and creation of built environments from the very earliest stages, thus saving time and money as well as helping ensure that the finished development satisfies everyone. For acoustics, using BIM will further reinforce the importance of sound and why designers should consider audio from the very beginning of the project design since it has a large impact on the venue’s environment, rendering audio a key design element for the future.

K-array’s speakers and amplifiers are found on the portal by easily browsing through the application categories, such as furniture, bathroom, office and wellness. STUDIO MAX 3D files, DXF files, material library files and BIM manual files can then be downloaded directly into the project design, allowing designers to determine the appropriate speaker system and to ensure proper cable management among all electronic systems is cohesive. Archiproducts also offers a Revit plugin so that users can access their libraries without having to browse the sites directly from the drawing program and ARCHICAD files will be available on the portal in the upcoming month.

The Archiproducts project files are then shareable with all project collaborators and are characterized by the badge "Featured by BIM.archiproducts" which certifies they satisfy technical and regulatory criteria such as geometric parameters, consistency of the model with reality, the integrity of alphanumeric data and their computation.

This incredibly efficient and useful tool will help K-array continue to champion the importance of audio. K-array’s page on the BIM portal can be found here:
