SCHAKO and LiNear strengthen their strategic partnership


Kolbingen, 11. März 2019 – SCHAKOnnect, the innovative BIM design platform, is available as a download package on the SCHAKO website in a new version.


The cooperation partners SCHAKO and liNear have regularly provided updates of the SCHAKOnnect BIM software online since 2017. Currently available is the SCHAKOnnect version v1.07 with well over 50 SCHAKO products which smoothly interoperate with the software tools by liNear and Autodesk for BIM-compliant planning of ventilating systems.


The SCHAKOnnect design platform has a link with the design programme by SCHAKO that will be available as a new version in the 2nd quarter of 2019 and will then be integratively connected to SCHAKOnnect online. By selecting a product, the SCHAKO online design programme is started and the configuration programme of the component is called up. With only one click the technical data of the product and the component geometry are transferred to SCHAKOnnect.


The viewer integrated in SCHAKOnnect can be used to view the three-dimensional product model from all sides by rotating it. Two detail levels are available for both the 3D model and the 2D views. The CAD model or a view can quickly and easily be placed from SCHAKOnnect in an AutoCAD or Revit drawing where it can be labelled. All component connections are generated during the drawing process in Autodesk Revit and in AutoCAD with liNear and can be connected with (round or rectangular) ventilation lines. It is possible to generate parts lists. The next extension level of SCHAKOnnect will be availabe in the 2nd quarter of 2019.


At ISH 2019, SCHAKO has a test system at the stand in hall 8.0 B.38, including CAD functionality. Whoever would like to come for a test is cordially invited.
