Case Paroc

How ProdLib created a tool for designing and modifying buildups

Starting point Sharing sample drawings

Paroc develops high end insulation products and shares product data and sample drawings for engineers and architects through their web pages.

The Problem Meeting designers’ individual needs

  • The sample drawings were accurate for Paroc building insulation layers, but otherwise the model neither matched the actual products nor met designers’ individual needs. Every time designers added a model to their project, they had to make changes to them.
  • Distributed content was mainly 2D CAD details and sample buildups, but Paroc also got requirements from designers to support BIM.
  • Also, the files were manually maintained, and they were hard to keep updated. It wasn’t unusual for designers to create projects with outdated material.

The Goal

  • To support designers and their workflow so that they can design their own buildups using real materials
  • To ensure that designers have always the latest products and information available
  • To support requirements of BIM designers

Today A tool for creating project-specific configurations of structures using real materials

ProdLib created a BuildUp tool. With BuildUp, it’s possible to create and modify wall, floor and roof structures from real and up-to-date materials. Paroc shares their building insulation products for thousands of structural engineers through ProdLib.

Main benefits for Paroc

  • Content sharing is maintained automatically, and the files are always up to date
  • No more creating sample structures that won’t even fit designers’ projects
  • Support for the “BIM approach”

Main benefits for designers An easy access to everything they need

  • With a single installation, designers get the BuildUp tool into their design program and can easily create wall, floor and roof structures with accurate material, fitting perfectly their needs
  • All the material from different manufacturers are in the same place. ProdLib BuildUp is everything a designer needs when creating layered structures
