Electrical BIM for Revit MEP families

Siemens produces an electrical distribution set of families to be AutoDesk Seek RMC Styleguide compliant


Siemens Industry, Inc., has Siemens Revit BIMmade the Building Information Modeling (BIM) available for the company’s low voltage distribution equipment, making its Revit MEP Family of products more easily available to architects and engineers during the design phase. Siemens continues its industry leadership, not only by offering the most comprehensive set of BIM families, but by being the first and only provider delivering BIM low-voltage distribution product families developed in full compliance with AutoDesk Seek RMC SG standards.

Siemens BIM families were specifically developed to meet all Revit MEP standards. Siemens Revit families include all Sentron panelboards and switchboards, Siemens WL low voltage switchgear, VBII safety switches, and both Sentron and XJL busway solutions. All configurations are selectable including flush, surface or NEMA 3R for panelboards, NEMA 1, 3R and 4X for safety switches, and both indoor and outdoor for switchgear. The Siemens busway BIM families are comprehensive and detailed, and Siemens provides a 14-minute tutorial video for advanced Revit designers to acclimate themselves to the application and quickly move on to mastery of the routines.

Because the Siemens BIM families are fully Revit MEP and AutoDesk Seek compliant, they are available both from within Revit MEP itself, as well as on the internet from the AutoDesk Seek website. Simply search by keyword (Siemens, panelboards, busway, etc.) for the full families. In addition to the Revit files, both the families and the AutoDesk Seek website include links to technical information on the specific Siemens equipment.
