BIM within SANHA: a positive evolution

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is becoming increasingly popular in the construction sector. In 2017, SANHA was the first manufacturer to launch the SANHA product Line Placer (PLIP) app in REVIT. This BIM tool enables engineers, planners and architects to design piping systems with our products in no time at all. At SANHA we see that BIM is becoming increasingly popular and that the number of users and downloads of the app continues to increase significantly.

PLIP app

With the free app, SANHA offers its customers a powerful tool for designing professional piping systems for heating, cooling, ventilation and drinking water installations and industrial projects. The app is equipped with some functions that are very time-saving for the user. For example, the auto-routing function ensures that correct fittings and pipes are automatically selected, and, thanks to the auto-scaling function, the dimensions can be adjusted at any time during the drawing process. All used pipes and fittings are also automatically transferred to a bill of materials. This allows users to place orders quickly and easily.

Positive evolution

There is no doubt that BIM is becoming increasingly popular. We at SANHA already saw the number of downloads via the SANHA app increase by 38% in 2019 compared to 2018. A total of 26,384 downloads were registered this year. BIM is expected to become even more important in the coming years. The benefits are so great that BIM will become the rule rather than the exception in the future. We will continue to keep a close eye on all developments so that we can keep our customers informed of the latest developments.
