Sherwin-Williams is First Paint Company to Offer Seamless Integration with Revit

Specifying paint and color is being simplified for architects and designers, thanks to a new agreement making Sherwin-Williams the first and only paint company to offer seamless integration with the Autodesk Revit software program. Professionals using the software now have instant access to Sherwin-Williams paint products and colors, enabling them to create color-accurate renderings of rooms, quickly and more efficiently.

Autodesk Revit is the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software used by architects and designers to design buildings, specify products, and render photo-realistic images. Now, Autodesk Material Library files have been created in the software, enabling Revit users to integrate Sherwin-Williams paint products and colors directly from the catalog into their drawings, eliminating extra tasks in the design process.

“As architects and designers seek to streamline the workflow process, the integration of Sherwin-Williams products and colors into the software will make specification faster and easier,” said Joe Kujawski, director, wholesale marketing, Sherwin-Williams.

With the advancement, Revit users can save Autodesk Material Library Files locally on a computer or to a centralized network for access by multiple people. They can easily navigate the Revit file to access information needed from the full Sherwin-Williams catalog, including the paint series, color number and name, and the appearance properties of the paint sheen. They can then instantly the apply colors, with photo-realistic accuracy, throughout their model.

“In the past, paint and coatings manufacturers didn’t have a great way to become an integral part of the BIM workflow; this new approach achieves just that,” said Benjamin Glunz, president, Anguleris Technologies, the Autodesk Content Services Provider on this project. “We are always seeking ways to improve the design and specification process for architects and designers, and the incorporation of Sherwin-Williams reduces steps in the process significantly.”
