Building Information Modeling (BIM)

The ASSA ABLOY Openings Studio™ information portal is a resource for architects, engineers, contractors, distributors and end user facility owners working in a 3D Building Information Model (BIM) environment.

The ASSA ABLOY "openings" suite of software tools are used for creating, visualizing, extracting, modifying, and exporting door, frame, mechanical and electronic hardware 3D models and product data for use throughout the design, construction, and facility management processes. These data rich objects include pricing and specifications, as well as linkouts to other supplemental information such as catalog and technical sheets, installation and maintenance instructions, and LEED and life cycle performance documents.

Web-based, the Openings Studio software application integrates seamlessly with Autodesk Revit® Architecture. Thecutting edge configuration tool can be used to analyze and import existing architectural door models and create revised versions containing detailed parameters and data. These "complete openings" can then be exported back into the BIM project model at various levels of detail at the discretion of the user. With Openings Studio you are able to build custom "door family" libraries for use in Pre-Design or Pre-Construction that can be individually tailored to the specific needs of a firm or client.
