ASSA ABLOY UK Specification has released the latest version of Openings Studio, its innovative BIM-enabled product specification tool.
Openings Studio 3.0 includes enhanced features and a refreshed user interface, designed to improve the user experience with real-time 3D visualisation.
Predicting how stakeholders will experience and interact with a building is a vital element of the design process, and the latest Openings Studio upgrade features detailed renderings and virtual models.
Stakeholders can then explore, review and envision how these 3D designs will be when a project is complete, bringing buildings to life.
Openings Studio is designed to minimise costs and streamline the data sharing process throughout the entire project lifecycle, by acting as a collaborative tool for all project stakeholders involved – from the initial design, through to construction, delivery, asset management and beyond.
The software, suitable for all building projects and applications, provides product information and performance data to guarantee building regulations are adhered to, while 3D views guarantee full design integration.
Users of Openings Studio can also create Virtual Design Guides, which basically serve as a library of typical openings for architects to then use when designing buildings.
Not only this, but data is available in multiple formats to ensure easy collaboration with all stakeholders, and Openings Studio supports popular BIM tools, such as Autodesk® Revit.
Eric Spooner, BIM Manager at ASSA ABLOY UK Specification, commented: “With more than 8,000 architects already using Openings Studio around the world, our BIM-enabled specification software is already adding incredible value to our user’s projects.
“The latest version reflects our on-going commitment to providing BIM software that delivers the highest possible value to our users.
“The new and improved user interface enables all stakeholders to bring projects to life throughout the design and specification phases, in an amazingly accurate and detailed way.
“Put simply, the newest update of Openings Studio continues to make the design and specification process a straight-forward and hassle-free process for users.
“Its improved user interface and visualisation capabilities help ensure a project is a true reflection of an architect’s vision.”
