The New BIM Generator from Guardian. This is BIM at its best. 

Applying science and cutting-edge expertise from the world of architecture
and high performance glass, Guardian offers an industry first BIM Generator. Construction engineers can request project specific custom content for curtain wall panels or window-based generic modeling.

Guardian BIM Generator and Glass Analytic Tools

The BIM Generator works with the Guardian Performance Calculator as part of a suite of online Glass Analytic tools. These tools are a comprehensive suite of engineering and analytical tools that demonstrate the advantages of high performance glass in building facades.  Click here for the Glass Analytics information flyer ».

The Performance Calculator provides modeling of the thermal and optical properties for glass make-ups ranging from monolithic uncoated glass to highly complex combinations of substrates, coatings and interlayers. These project specific make-ups can then be integrated into the Guardian Building Energy Calculator to compare energy cost and consumption information based on hourly simulations of user specified glass make-ups, building parameters and geography. Once a selection has been made from the comparative tools, users have the ability to request project specific custom BIM content from the Guardian Performance Calculator.
