Sto Corp., the innovative world leader in claddings, air barriers, coatings, and restoration systems, introduced updated Building Information Modeling (BIM) assets for all Sto color collections.
With the new BIM assets, architects, designers, general contractors, and other users can easily and completely integrate every Sto color palette directly within their preferred BIM app, capturing the color metadata within the project’s complete documentation.
Sto is continually expanding and improving its robust offering of BIM assets, which already include models for its StoVentec Rainscreen and StoTherm ci continuous insulation systems, among other fully engineered systems. With the addition of the color collection assets, the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) community is better equipped to digitally render more accurate designs.
“As a technology leader, Sto is always innovating,” said Zack Donnelly, Technical Manager, BIM/CAD at Sto. “These new, more accurate assets will let Sto do what it does better than anyone: help people realize their creative vision.”
According to Donnelly, because designers can access Sto’s extensive range of colors directly within their favorite BIM app, they can work with the tools they’re used to and the Sto systems they depend on. “The new assets fit right into both their digital and creative workflow,” he explained.
