By order of Vaillant Group, a library of 3D models of equipment manufactured and widely known under the Protherm brand was developed.

In particular , the library includes:

• The entire range of boiler equipment – wall and floor boilers, such series as Panther, Tiger, Bizon (Bizon NO/NL) and others.

• Water heaters for boilers, such as WH B60 Z, FE 150/6 BM and others

• Boiler control systems (regulators), such as Thermolink S series

Initially, the library was made in the Autodesk Inventor format. This made it possible to create well–thought-out properly structured 3D models, since Autodesk Inventor is a CAD for professional 3D design modeling. 3D models have been set 3D models library for ArchiCAD, Autodesk Inventor andAutoCAD


Further, for wider dissemination of the database among potential users, all 3D models were converted to DWG format so that they could be viewed in AutoCAD, ZWCAD, BricsCAD, nanoCAD and numerous other AutoCAD analogues.



Converting a 3D model to DWG format

The final stage was a high-quality visualization using the Autodesk Showcase program. Since the 3D models were originally given materials and colors, the visualization turned out to be of photographic quality.



Visualization using the Autodesk Showcase program

This library is distributed free of charge through Protherm employees.
