The Hilti Button automates the firestop product and UL system selection process, and eliminates the manual task of placing hundreds of firestop objects in BIM. The software automatically detects penetrations in fire-related construction and populates the appropriate firestop products and UL systems. It is seamlessly integrated with the Autodesk ecosystem around Navisworks Manage, AutoCAD, Fabrication CADmep, and Revit. Using attributes in the model for clash detection, the Hilti Button identifies penetrations going through fire rated barriers that need to be firestopped. That information from clash detection is then pulled into firestop manager.
