Cavatorta on BIMobject Cloud

Building Information Modelling (BIM) and BIMobject® are revolutionising contemporary architecture and the design methods for buildings and infrastructure. Cavatorta has decided to join this international project, launching its company profile and some of its most important products on, the world’s leading BIM content platform.              

In this article we explain what BIM and BIMobject® are, their contexts of use and the potential benefits of using these design tools in the fields of architecture and construction. 

The BIM method: what is it, and how is it revolutionising design?

BIM stands for “Building Information Modelling”, a design method that focusses on the digitalisation of all processes involved in the realisation and management of buildings, plants, and infrastructure, from planning to construction.

Thanks to BIM, the professional individuals who participate in the various stages of the life-cycle of a building can collaborate together, adding information and updating data regarding the building even before its actual construction. The result is a virtual model that is not just a 3D representation of the structure, but a true dynamic prototype, which includes information regarding design, materials, safety, systems, thermal and energy performance, maintenance, demolition and decommissioning. 

Designers who use BIM can evaluate each aspect of the building, from basic elements such as construction materials and systems, to structural details. Each change to the design generates an automatic variation in all the processes concerning it, thus reducing the production time of the various design aspects and avoiding possible errors or misalignments with the other designers involved in the work.

The use of BIM offers objective advantages, rendering the entire process of designing and realising a building much more efficient compared to standard procedures.

BIMobject®: the world’s first BIM content platform

BIMobject® is the world’s largest free platform for BIM content, created by manufacturers who operate in various sectors.    
A “BIM object” is a 3D digital representation of a physical product, from which all of its technical characteristics can be seen: from its dimensions to its certifications.
Engineers, architects and designers registered on the platform can easily find the products they require for their projects and study them in great detail, download them and use them directly in their models, significantly speeding up the design phase.    
Finally, they can discuss the different BIM products and objects available with manufacturing companies.

Cavatorta on BIMobject®

Cavatorta has joined this innovative project by creating a company profile on the BIMobject® platform, offering BIM objects relating to a number of priority products. Below, we have listed the products that are currently available.

Rexipal + Decoplax

A fencing system for securing roads, motorways, railways, sports fields, as well as small and medium extension applications. Rexipal consists of a galvanised support base and pole. Decoplax is a galvanized wire mesh, which has been electrowelded and plastic-coated, featuring a differentiated mesh and an octagonal shape. This fencing system can be installed without particular equipment and can be inserted directly into the ground, becoming a single built-in unit. Its ability to adapt to all difficult or inaccessible terrains makes Rexipal a unique system.
