Introducing a powerful new plugin for AutoDesk Revit®. The FCM (Firestop Clash Management) plugin uses clash detection to find locations where penetrants and/or joints meet fire-rated barriers and automatically selects the appropriate firestop systems. It removes the complexity of designing firestop systems and ensures that when it comes time for construction, the systems selected provide the fastest installation and best installed cost. It is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
STI now offers a complete BIM (Building Information Modeling) solution which includes smart BIM objects for our entire product line and the new Firestop Clash Management (FCM) Plugin. The smart BIM objects are individual objects that can be input into a Revit model that represent our products digitally. The objects include devices, collars, and sealants that automatically adapt to the conditions of the model.
Information for all of STI’s BIM offerings can be found on the BIM Resources page (http://www.stifirestop.com/bim-resources/).
More in-depth features, including a download link to the installer and an instructional video on using the plugin, can be found on the FCM page (http://www.stifirestop.com/FCM).
Shout outs to: David Samuel, Justin Pine, John Graper, Corey Chess, and Jason Nappi for making this all happen.
