Design Great Projects with Orion ECI and Autodesk Seek

In the competitive security market, the strategy for getting ahead is getting designed into new projects. To do that, it is essential to have BIM (Building Information Modeling) models and CAD drawings ready to go.  Orion Entrance Control, Inc., a leading manufacturer of innovative and customized entrance control lanes such as turnstiles, has taken this strategy further by helping architects, consultants, and engineers to easily find and access its 3D CAD and BIM models on Autodesk Seek, a web service that helps designers quickly discover, preview, and download high-quality 3D information 

According to a report from McGraw Hill Construction, BIM adoption in North America has grown from 17 to 70 percent based on multi-year trend analysis and user ratings from 2007-2012. Based on this and other research, Steve Caroselli, president of Orion Entrance Control, Inc., recognized that the migration to 3D CAD platforms that offer visualization, simulation, and enhanced analytics is transforming the design process. Caroselli was determined that Orion ECI offer the cutting-edge tool on their products.

“We are thrilled to work with Autodesk to have its Seek service offer the entire line of Orion’s entrance control products in Autodesk Revit and BIM models,” said Caroselli.

Orion Entrance Control, Inc. has listed Orion’s entrance control lanes on Autodesk Seek including3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) models, 2D drawings, installation instructions, data sheets, and product specifications of Orion’s barrier products. Architects, engineers and integrators can go to seek.autodesk.com and find Orion’s CAD and BIM applications. For the architects and consultants, this means no downtime during the design phase, from needed specs or other information. Autodesk Seek is integrated into Autodesk AutoCAD and Autodesk Revit design platforms.

“Autodesk is very pleased to add Orion Entrance Control and the company’s innovative access control systems to Autodesk Seek for those designing turnstiles for high-rise buildings, government centers, education campuses and corporate headquarters,” said Autodesk Product Line Manager Patrick Aragon. “As a pioneer in the category, Orion is helping to lead the way for their industry and bring more variety to the only BIM product library native to Autodesk Revit.”

“Overall, Orion Entrance Control, Inc. not only empowers architects, consultants and engineers by listing their access control barriers on Autodesk Seek, but has leveraged a competitive edge by offering such a value-added tool,” said Caroselli.
