Intelligent Building Design

BIM has never been so easy and affordable

ELEVATOR DESIGN

FineLIFT includes all the tools you need to perform the necessary calculations and generate automatically the entire set of the elevator drawings along with the bill of materials, technical specifications and other documentation.

FineLIFT Features & Highlights

EASY TRANSITION

In Fine LIFT you can create your project by just defining the basic parameters of the elevator and selecting the appropriate equipment from the program libraries. FineLIFT combines a state-of-the-art BIM technology and an AutoCAD-like look and feel to help you to draw your project faster and easier.

Fine LIFT includes all the tools you need to perform the necessary calculations and thereafter to generate automatically the entire set of the elevator drawings with all the construction details.

Drawing the building in 3D with BIM objects is not required to proceed to the elevator design but you can also do it in a few clicks. Calculation and design are independent modules and particularly for Fine LIFT you always start from the calculation module given that the set of the detailed drawings is automatically generated directly from the calculation results.

Unlike other BIM Elevator Software, Fine LIFT is producing files directly in DWG and includes features to convert the sophisticated BIM objects that can’t be seen in CAD software into simple vectors that can be further edited in AutoCAD®. Sharing 2D or 3D files with other professionals is therefore much easier.

This Elevator Software includes all the features of 4MCAD , our alternative to AutoCAD®. You get 2 software in one, you can keep using CAD to edit some DWG drawings while using our BIM technology to increase your productivity when working on most of your projects. At least you can feel safe and migrate to BIM at your own pace.

DESIGN

Unlike in other BIM software, Fine LIFT’s modern BIM technology does not come at the expense of speed, it is just the opposite : you just need to insert the project data and the software will do the rest.

Fine LIFT includes extensive libraries of elements (guide rails, wire ropes, pulleys, motors, pistons, pumps, supply pipes etc) including all their technical characteristics, parametrically defined. These libraries can also be extended by the user who can add more components.

After performing the calculations you will update the drawings from the calculation module and then get into the project drawings to define the specific details you would like to display about each drawing (i.e. type of doors, topology of the engine room etc).

Fine LIFT will also help you to create automatically tables and legends with respect to the technical drawings automatically produced by the program.

CALCULATIONS

FineLIFT’s Calculation module is closely interacting with the elevator technical drawings. Calculations are performed following the latest Standards EN81-20 and EN81-50, as well as the CIBSE 2010 Traffic Analysis.

The calculations Component of Fine LIFT generates automatically the entire set of the drawings required to describe the installation in a construction level detail. Calculations are based on the EN81-20/50 European standards which are widely accepted all over the globe.

Fine LIFT calculates all the necessary equipment (i.e. type of guide rails, car attributes and dimensions, pull diameters, motor power etc), as well as the bill of the materials, technical descriptions/specifications and other results, in just a few clicks.

OUTPUTS

After proceeding to the calculations our MEP Software will let you generate all the technical drawings and reports you need

Our MEP Software will generate for you the entire set of elevator drawings in DWG that you can further modify and/or share.

Fine LIFT will generate a document with the calculation results and the bill of materials describing the quantities of each of the elements required to assemble the elevator installation. The template of this document can be customized and you can chose which results you want to display.

The elevator installation will be updated with the results of calculation, along with labels to define the details of each component. As a result you will be able to generate all the project drawings in DWG along with all the construction details.

BIM

4M is among the companies with the longest experience of BIM with a complete suite of BIM Software for Architecture & Engineering first released in 1993. The 4M BIM Software are renown by experts to be the BIM software offering the easiest migration for AutoCAD users as they are the only ones to use DWG as their native file format and an AutoCAD-like look-and-feel.

Fine LIFT’s advanced BIM technology will increase your productivity. Using our smart 3D modelers and libraries of 3D BIM objects for elevator design you will be able to draw the building much faster and easier.

The close interaction of our Calculation module with the BIM model will help you to generate the project drawings directly from the project data. Fine LIFT will simply read the project data in order to proceed to the necessary calculations and finally to generate and update the drawings with all the results.

Last but not least you will be able to collaborate with other BIM software and share with other architects and engineers the discipline-specific contents you added to the common BIM project.

The BIM information can also be extracted to create a Bill of Materials showing the quantities and details of the various elements you created in the specific elevator installation. You can calculate the cost and get a detailed description of the elements you need.

FineLIFT 19 Major Upgrade with additional advanced features

New BIM interface including Ribbon menus, enhanced toolbars, sophisticated property panel, enhanced dialogs for the BIM entities and widespread use of grips.

New BIM design with a total code restructure based on the ODA-Teigha libraries and a 64bit Architecture to ensure unrivaled performances on the display engine and the open/save & read/write functions.

  • Quick editing of the BIM objects, due to the extended property panel in conjunction with the filter selection and the use of grips.
  • Intelligent building level/floor management (images as Xrefs, smart level editor and others).
  • Clash detection with respect to the other MEP installations.
  • High quality fast rendering to create realistic views of both, the building shell and the MEP installations

Maximum interoperability with every BIM application (i.e. Revit, Archicad etc) and seamless integration among the FINE-MEP verticals, as well as with IDEA and FineGREEN.

The 4M BIM Suite always one step ahead the competition

just make the comparison yourself and see the difference.
