Bituminous waterproofing Börner – a layer above the rest

Do you prefer asphalt felt to plastic sheets when planning? Then you will definitely appreciate new elements in BIMTech Tools – asphalt felts for every conditions and setting imaginable. We put together sandwich components for various degrees of Radon risk, water pressure, or even the composition of green roofs that would be resilient to inward growth. If you design layering yourself, there is a wide selection of building materials available with their descriptions and pieces of advice as to where and why they fit best.


Maxit Plastering systems

The sturdiness of masonry, the type of mortar paste used, the level of harshness or even reflection of colour; they all have a considerable impact on the plastering of a one-layered brick wall. It is, therefore, not easy at all to choose the right plastering system for brick walls. In order to help you out with it, we launched a plastering layering configurator in cooperation with Franken Maxit, which takes into account all these parameters. Moreover, it will display the changes in temperature inside the building, count the overall heat penetration and insert the whole structure with all its layers directly into the project. The time for complaints about fissures caused by the wrong type of plaster has come to an end. Finding it too good to be true? Try it out yourself in our add-on with any type of outside walls.


HELUZ – materials and walls including plastering systems

HELUZ brick walls have been a staple on the market when it comes to designing family homes and other types of shorter buildings. You can now generate it in BIMTech Tools either as a material or directly with sandwich layers and plastering. As of now, it is possible to take advantage of the energetic analysis of heat penetration that would help you decide whether to use heat accumulating or one-layered walls, including the choice of plastering systems Maxit, Cemix or Weber. You can use the automatic description of compositions without having to spend hours searching for the right plastering system. Remuneration of materials have never been easier.


New materials and sandwich structures from JUB

The international company, JUB has now included materials and sandwich structures into BIMTech Tools. Do you not wish to guarantee that you made the right choice of glue and plastering? Our add-on consists of sandwich of external thermal insulation (ETICS) that was recommended directly by the producer. You do not have to search for the colour charts and try to figure out whether the selected shade is compatible with the given plastering. Try it out yourselves and you will see how easy it is to use the chosen materials in your project. The information of the construction composites has been deepened once again.


Stop with all the colour clicking

You are holding colour charts in your hands and it is great to browse, flip through and everything, but it not the most practical thing when designing. Who likes spending time searching for the right RGB value? In order to help you minimise this time consuming activity, we enhanced the BIMTech Tools add-on; it now has all the RAL and NCS colour charts as well as charts from various producers. The charts can be found in ArchiCAD and Revit.


How to generate the land registry map into your project

Are you also tired of re-drawing land registry maps from the downloaded materials? Do you want to use the Czech cadastre map with all the up-to-date data directly in your designing programme? Our add-on BIMTech Tools now has a tool that comes in handy. It imports the land registry snip right into your project from CUZK (State Administration of Land Surveying and Cadastre). The cadastre maps are now available for AutoCAD, ArchiCAD and Revit. Watch this short video to see how it all works.


LITHOPLAST – waterproofing membrane and accessories

Are you trying to find a hydro-insulating foil made of Polyethylene that can be used for the ground floor? The BIMTech Tools add-on now contains resilient studded membrane and its accessories from the Czech company, LITHOPLAST.


New hydro-insulating membranes FATRAFOL in the material catalogue

Are you trying to figure out which waterproofing foil to use for flat roof, or how thick the waterproofing ground layer should be? Finding the right membrane does not have to be rocket science, just have a look at BIMTech Tools to see what FATRAFOL one of the producers recommends for the given purposes. Download the add-on for ArchiCAD and Revit for free and make designing easier.
