NBS Plus is a growing library of manufacturers’ products available in downloadable BIM formats.
Architects and designers can find products and drag and drop them into place before orienting each product within the modelled building design. All BIM objects are defined according to the NBS BIM Object Standard. This ensures that information, geometry, behaviour and presentation of each product is consistent for accurate modelling.
It’s easier than ever for architects and designers to choose the best products for their projects.
Technical data for each BIM object is comprehensive. Alongside dimensions and colours, objects also include details such as BFRC energy rating, glazing or infill thickness options, transom and mullion size options, various weather performance ratings, and much more. In fact, detailed properties from the BIM Object Standard, IFC and COBie property sets are included for each product.
The NBS Plug-in v3.6 for Autodesk Revit enables you to drop BIM objects directly into your Revit project.
The NBS BIM Toolkit enables project leaders to assemble a team with clearly assigned roles and responsibilities to work collaboratively across projects. Models and drawings can be made available via smartphones and tablets. With widely available 4G access, plus comprehensive cloud storage, construction engineers can refer to specifications on-site and online.
