DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - October 21, 2016) - PCL Construction is pleased to offer PCL PartsLab, a new, free Autodesk Revit add-in that will revolutionize the way the construction industry creates and manages construction documentation, turning hours of work into minutes.
Over the last 10 years the medium for creating construction documentation in the architecture, engineering, and construction industries has transitioned from two-dimensional blueprints to three-dimensional Building Information Models (BIMs). Currently, these models that are produced by design teams are re-created by the construction team to reflect means and methods for construction, and to produce documentation for field staff. PCL PartsLab streamlines the flow of information between these two groups for a more collaborative environment.
To download PCL PartsLab for free, visit partslab.pcl.com or the Autodesk App Store.
Further PCL PartsLab Information
Revit Parts is a native Autodesk Revit feature that creates clone objects in the construction model, which can be modified in many ways to accurately represent the objects being built in the field. Before PCL PartsLab, the parts created by Revit Parts had to be created and managed manually. PCL PartsLab automates the creation, visualization, and change management of Revit Parts, drastically reducing the time needed to create thousands of Revit Parts from targeted categories, families, and types. Additionally, PCL PartsLab's context-sensitive tools assist users in quickly hiding or isolating Revit Parts.
