To support this work they have chosen to use the app ‘Interior Manager’ from the Cloud solution BIMeye for interior design.
The SEB project is large and complex with several thousands of rooms to be furnished. In order to handle the interior design in a structured way, Wingårdhs searched for new and more efficient working methods with supporting IT solutions.
Dealing with this type of project with traditional methods, such as with 2D in AutoCAD where you specify, describe and report the interior design in programs such as Excel and Word is both challenging and time consuming. It also entails great risks and margins of error. After evaluating various systems, Wingårdhs chose to use the BIMeye app Interior Manager. At the same time, they decided to switch from Autocad and start working on the project in Revit.
Automatically from 2D AutoCAD to Revit
Initially, Wingårdhs had started the work by drawing the interior plans in 2D in AutoCAD. To avoid having to redraw everything in Revit the consultants from Symetri developed a functionality enabling the architects to convert the project to Revit, automatically.
By exporting the furnishings and redesigning them into Revit objects, and creating new interior models in Revit automatically, the interior designers at Wingårdhs saved many hours of manual work redrawing the entire interior design.
