The Tadano Group has published BIM* files for a selection of construction cranes in the Tadano Group lineup. The files, available for download from the BIMobject®* platform, make construction planning with Tadano Group construction cranes even easier for companies using BIM.
*BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a digital database that allows users to digitally model a building, and determine the associated cost, material type, and other elements. It consolidates previously separated information from design, construction, and maintenance, to create a comprehensive management workflow that can be used throughout the whole building lifecycle.
*BIMobject® is an online BIM object library, offered globally by Sweden-based company BIMobject AB. It is used by building and interior product manufacturers all over the world to develop, store, and publish BIM data and other digital products. BIM users may download the data for free after registering an account.

Construction equipment is essential to construction sites, and there is an increasing need for digital models to use with BIM. To live up to customers' demand, Tadano Group has published BIM files for a selection of construction cranes in the Tadano Group lineup. Not only will this help relieve the workload of creating complicated BIM data for construction cranes, but will contribute to the digital transformation (DX) of the construction and architectural industry.
