Kährs collaborates with BIMobject for cloud-based 3D modelling

Kährs, a leading manufacturer and distributor of flooring, has been offering its architecture and design clients the service of BIMobject since 2018. The BIMobject Cloud is the world’s largest platform for manufacturer-specific BIM content and with Kährs flooring products listed on the cloud, architects and designers are able to plan, visualize and optimize their projects in the most user-friendly and effective way.   

Building Information Modelling, BIM, provides a 3D modelling process where professionals such as architects, designers and engineers are able to access a cloud of thousands of high-quality products, in order to create and manage digital information about construction projects. BIM objects contain digital descriptions of products and material that create a 3D BIM model when combined with other BIM objects. 

In 2018, Kährs listed most of its hardwood flooring products in the BIM Cloud, giving architects and designers globally the ability to incorporate Kährs’ ​products in project visualization to optimize project planning and end results. 

At Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair in Stockholm, a representative from BIMobject® will be present with Kährs to showcase how to easily use BIM modelling and to answer questions related to BIM at Kährs’ booth on February 4th between 13.00 – 15.00 or 5th between 10.00 – 12.00 CET. 

“We are happy to cooperate with BIMobject, meaning that we are able to help architects, designers and engineers optimizing projects involving our hardwood floors. BIMobject’s cloud-based platform facilitates in the process of achieving outstanding end results in the most easy and effective way,” said Charlotta Persfell, Chief Marketing Officer at Kährs.
