Epson Teams with Autodesk to Offer Projector 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) Files within Revit
LONG BEACH, Calif., Aug. 25, 2015—Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, today announced it has teamed with Autodesk to make it easier for consultants and design engineers to specify Epson projector solutions in new construction and remodeling projects within the Autodesk Revit software. Design professionals using the software can now easily access Epson projectors within Autodesk Seek, a web service that enables designers to quickly discover, preview and download BIM files, models, drawings, and product specifications for their active design sessions.
Autodesk Revit software helps architects and designers design buildings using a Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. Architects and designers can seamlessly integrate Epson projectors into their 3D models created with Revit software, allowing them to provide clients with a more complete picture of the end result.
“We are committed to supporting design consultants’ and engineers’ efforts to streamline their BIM workflow,” said Steve James, consultant liaison, Projectors, Epson America, Inc. “This integration allows our industry-leading installation projector solutions to become an integral part of the development process, providing for easier integration into 3D renderings.”
