Farpointe Data, a DORMA Group Company, announced that AutoDesk Revit building information modeling (BIM) objects for Farpointe Data contactless card readers and long-range receivers are now available on the ARCAT.com website. ARCAT, a major publisher of building product information, offers these objects at no charge.

“In addition to creating accurate graphics, ARCAT and Farpointe have added appropriate product data to each object,” said Scott Lindley, president of Farpointe Data, “This will save architects and engineers a significant amount of time doing data entry and product research while determining which of our contactless proximity, smart card or long-range reader models to specify.”

All of Farpointe’s objects, graphics and content are uniform and modifiable for ease of use. In addition to product information, ARCAT has embedded links in the objects to Farpointe’s CSI 3-Part specs.

According to Lindley, ARCAT and Farpointe Data uphold the belief that high-quality graphics are only the tip of the building information modeling iceberg and it is the limitless amount of information held within the model that is driving the A/E/C community to adopt parametric software platforms such as Revit.
