Hilti Button for FirestopThe Hilti Button for Firestop automation software is designed to integrate with BIM software platforms. It automates the firestop product and UL-system selection process and eliminates the tedious, manual task of placing hundreds or thousands of firestop objects in BIM. The software automatically detects penetrations in fire-related construction and populates the appropriate firestop products and UL systems directly into BIM to save time and reduce costs. AEC firms can save more than 1½ months of project time. The software integrates seamlessly with the Autodesk ecosystem around Navisworks Manage, AutoCAD MEP, Fabrication CADmep, and Revit and automates the firestop-selection process on a project.
