About the Coldshield BIM Library

The ‘project-ready’ Coldshield Revit library has been developed according to industry best practices, created with attention to detail in areas such as Family and Shared Parameters, Level of Detail settings, 2D linework, Origin Points, Family/Type Naming, Product Data Integration, Reference Planes, application of Materials, Classification, and performance in a project environment.

The library includes 24 parametric Families with a total of 72 ‘Types’, and incorporates PBR (‘Advanced’) materials within the families to provide accurate visualisation outputs in Revit and associated rendering applications.

In addition to individual Revit families, the Coldshield library includes a ‘Virtual Showroom’ Revit project file (.RVT), loaded with all Families and Family Types. This Project File provides designers with an efficient way to download and browse the Coldshield Revit library in its entirety, and to view how the Families document, visualise and schedule consistently in a Revit project environment.

By their nature, Roller Doors and Swing Doors can be technically challenging and time-consuming to create Revit content for. Having access to well-constructed and project-ready Revit content for Coldshield products will be an immensely valuable resource for designers.“
