Design of UPONOR´s invisible air conditioning systems now is also integrated into the Open BIM Workflow
CYPE Uponor is an application integrated in the Open BIM workflow to perform the calculation of air conditioning systems using the radiant heating and cooling setups from the Finnish company. With this new software, downloadable from the BIMserver.center platform, the designers have the ability to carry out a project, taking into account the specific technical characteristics of the different UPONOR solutions.
The CYPE Uponor tool allows technicians to try designs and dimensions from different company solutions, establishing their properties, calculation parameters and selection procedures in an automatic way, evolving the design phase into a much more efficient and productive component. In addition, the application condenses and solves the errors that usually arise in the execution phase. Also, the software is capable of scaling production with geothermal energy capture systems.
The tool also allows the user to define the constructive elements of the building and the air conditioning system, calculate the thermal loads from summer to winter, and size all the elements of the system or air conditioning systems.
In addition and thanks to the connection with other BIM tools available in the BIMserver.center it is possible to perform a vast array of energy calculations, from the entire building to one floor or room to room with the radiant systems from Uponor.
The exportation of the architecture and installations models is possible in the standard IFC format, this also including other files such as those in the glTF format, allowing visualization of the installations in augmented reality with the BIMServer.centre APP.
In addition, the BIMserver.center platform allows technicians from different areas to work in conjunction with each other on the same project through the Open BIM workflow. This allows one to synchronize the models and visualize them in 3D. The files included in the project in addition to those within CYPE UPONOR, promotes a integrated way to view different areas of the project, such as structure, furniture, toilets or other facilities.
The BIMserver.center Team is a group of specialists dedicated to different areas of the architecture, engineering and construction sector. Together, they discuss, promote and disseminate the technology Open BIM around the world.
