Marley Eternit's BIM tutorial

4 Jul 14 Marley Eternit has produced a video tutorial showing how to find, download and use BIM objects for its range of clay roof tiles.

The short video, shown below, demonstrates the company’s online BIM Space and shows the Autodesk Revit files available for its range of clay plain tiles. It also demonstrates how they can be applied to the user’s own designs.

The latest NBS National BIM report shows that 54% of construction professionals have used building information modelling (BIM) on at least one project in the last year, 15% more than in 2013 and 40% more than in 2010.  This number is expected to grow rapidly, with just over 93% of those surveyed predicting they would be using it by 2016.

Marley Eternit marketing product manager Sarah Jackson said: “As the first UK manufacturer to launch a range of BIM objects for clay plain tiles, we wanted to do more than just make the files available.  The process of using BIM can be daunting and we wanted to make it easier.”
