Autodesk Seek offers quality rating systems
Autodesk, Inc. has announced the integration of a new quality rating system within Autodesk Seek, a free web service that enables architects and design professionals to quickly discover, preview and download branded and generic Building Information Modeling (BIM) models, drawings and specifications. To help architects, designers and manufacturers reportedly ensure quality when using intelligent models, drawings and specifications found in Seek, Autodesk will evaluate and rate each item using a set of seven icons. Additional ratings will be introduced over the coming months, beginning with ratings for chairs, doors, tables and benches, according to Autodesk.
Seek is reportedly continuing to see significant momentum among designers and building product manufacturers, averaging 850,000 searches per month and 1,800,000 visitors this year alone, with nearly half of all visitors downloading files.
