Induction hob manufacturer, Induced Energy, informs UK kitchen designers and distributors that its products are now available on the CESABIM website.
CESABIM has been developed by CESA, the Catering Equipment Suppliers Association, in partnership with BIM specialist Schematic.
CESABIM make it easy to provide access to BIM models that can be uploaded into any BIM software format.
Rosie Sanders, managing director of Induced Energy says: “Two years ago kitchen designers started asking us for drag and drop models of our induction hobs and induction keep-hot, mentioning systems such as Autodesk Revit.
“Always keen to respond to requests from designers, we set about trying to find a way of complying with these requests, but now that we outsource our metal work design, we hadn’t a clue how to go about getting our models drawn, and tried several design companies unsuccessfully.
“One even sent us drawings using a programme that even our metal work manufacturers couldn’t open and so we couldn’t check the measurements.
“Luckliy Edinburgh-based Schematics came along (BIM me up Scottie), and for an affordable price produced the models with the associated information required.
“These are now hosted on CESABIM and designers can view them by signing up to Autoscheme.”
The scheme is free to CESA, CEDA and FCSI members.
