Autodesk-Seek-AlucobondStatesville, NC - 3A Composites USA announces that Alucobond® Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) 3-D Building Information Modeling (BIM) files, as well as two-dimensional Alucobond drawings and product specifications, now are available on Autodesk Seek.

Alucobond 3-D BIM files will be previewed at the Alucobond booth at the 2015 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, November 18-19 in Washington, D.C.

3A Composites USA is collaborating with Autodesk to provide Alucobond 3-D BIM files to the architectural/engineering/construction (AEC) community to enhance the Alucobond product selection process as well as to facilitate active design sessions in which Alucobond has been specified as building cladding.

Ben Branham, architectural marketing manager, 3A Composites USA, commented, “We want to make it easy for design professionals to gain a three-dimensional perspective of how our wide range of Alucobond colors and finishes will look when installed as cladding on their building designs. Once specified, Alucobond BIM files can serve as a key component in facilitating architectural, structural and operational design reviews and analyses by the entire building design and construction team.”

3A Composites USA has listed all stocked Alucobond aluminum composite materials – including both Alucobond PE and Alucobond Plus – in the company’s Alucobond Classic, Contemporary, naturAL and Spectra color palettes as BIM files on Seek. Additionally, Alucobond two-dimensional drawings, product data sheets, LEED contribution information, and installation instructions utilizing rainscreen, wet-seal and dry-seal systems are posted on Seek.
