In its commitment to innovation, Noken Porcelanosa Bathrooms is progressively incorporating 3D files in the BIM format which are available for downloading directly from the digital catalogue in its website. 

A new functionality that makes architecture professionals’ work easy when planning their projects, making use of this new technology that has now become an industry standard.


Precise technology at the service of professionals

BIM (Building Information Modelling), was created as a collaborative work methodology. Files in BIM format have become standard - sometimes mandatory - in the building industry. Designers, architects, engineers and everyone else involved in the planning, building or maintenance of a home, use it to know the technical details of each element that makes up the whole building, with the great advantage of allowing for minimizing possible deviations and calculation errors.

It is a work methodology for the management of building projects through a 3D digital model. In this digital model, a database is generated which allows for all the elements belonging to any building to be managed, throughout its life cycle.

One of the main advantages and applications compared to other formats used in the industry, is the level of detail that the BIM files provide. For example, by incorporating one of the BIM products by Noken into a Revit project (building information modelling software), all its geometric and technical characteristics included in this element, which becomes part of the set, are defined.


The Noken products are NBS certified

There is also a certifying body for these types of files. This is the NBS, National BIM Library, an institution which ensures a quality and consistency guarantee that makes a greater collaboration in the industry that much easier. This allows for a much more agile, comfortable and secure decision making.

To sum up, a digital BIM object is a container of information that integrates all the significant data about the specifications of a particular product and that allows building professionals to do their job when they have to make decisions, plan, use their foresight, as well as undertaking a project.

These new technologies represent a further step in this field. They are increasingly essential because they make professionals' day-to-day lives easier, along with minimising possible errors in the planning phase. Undoubtedly, an advance in which the companies producing materials must play a leading role to integrate the development of these new digital materials in their processes.
