Bradley Virtual Design Center | Architects-Interior Designers

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Nov 19, 2017 6:58:25 PM

The Bradley Virtual Design Center (VDC) provides architects and designers self-service, photo-realistic product selection tools, within several pre-built toilet room environments:

[ High Traffic ] - [ Institutional ] - [ Corporate ] - [ Hospitality ]

1) The Bradley VDC DESIGN tool offers to answer the most frequent client concern,

[ How will this lavatory-sink model appear within a space using my color selections? ]

2) The Bradley VDC COLLABORATION tool provides the answer to the next most important question,

[ How can I capture and share my design option decisions with my team and owner? ]

1) DESIGN Menu

 Designers choose a project environment (Location) for visualizing Bradley's Natural Quartz and/or Solid-surface lavatory basins, toilet partitions with wall and floor materials.

Designers select the Bradley Sinks, Faucet & Soap Dispenser Options and Toilet Partition Materials from the 'Left Margin Menu'.

Several Wall and Flooring Material Options are available with a choice of Camera positions.

 

2) COLLABORATION Menu

 As designers select product models and materials for review; they need tools to share and obtain feedback from BOTH the Design Team and Facility Owner.

 

Designers can Download the configured image, Print, Email and/ or Share to Social Media using the Menu in the Lower Right Margin.

 

3) SPECIFICATION Menu

The Designers' selected products and materials are listed in the upper right corner menu.

Selecting a product in the menu, pops-up a rendered product image with the selected material.

ZOOM the image by 'Rolling' the Mouse Wheel or Use the + / - buttons.

HOLD DOWN the Mouse Pick button to spin a 360 Rendered View of the product.


Since 2009, the Bradley Revit Library has served the visualization needs of architects & interior designers.

How to Add Bradley Product Revit Material Catalogs to Project

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 17, 2017 4:40:00 PM

Bradley has created custom Revit Material Catalogs for all materials specific for Bradley products.

Bradley Revit Material Catalogs can be downloaded for

A link to Bradley Revit Materials is found on the Bradley Bradley BIM-Revit Library Page in the right margin.

    

All materials use a naming convention that is consistent with materials already supplied in Revit.

Bradley Revit Material Catalogs are unique as material definitions are attached to individual "Chips" in a Revit Project file (*.rvt) file (shown above).

A Revit user can copy a material chip(s) from the Material Project File and paste it into their Revit Project File. When the chip is pasted into their project; it carries the material definition into the project. Just delete the chip and the material definition remains in the project.

  1. find and select the Bradley product family in the project,
  2. select the material parameter in the Property Browser and
  3. select the added Bradley Material in the project Material Browser dialogue box.

This copy-paste process avoids using  the 'Transfer Project Standards' dialogue box; that would transfer ALL the materials into the client Revit project. This keeps the project file smaller; while keeping the Project Material Library clean from unwanted \ unused materials.

When you download our Material Catalogs, you will receive them as separate .zip files.

Inside the downloaded .zip files  is a Revit Material Project file (*.rvt ) and the corresponding material .jpg image files; that are Bradley materials. The material .jpg files are required for the Revit rendering process.

  1. Copy all the .jpg image files into a Bradley folder in your firm's Manufacturer Material Library folder.  
  2. Add this new folder to the 'folder search path' that Revit Rendering searches to find material image files.
  3. In the Revit Options Dialogue box, select Rendering tab in the left margin.
  4. Select the 'plus + symbol' to add the new directory.
  5. The icon with dots " ...  "appears in the right.
  6. Select the dots to browse to and select the Bradley material folder that was added.
  7. Revit will now automatically search this folder list for materials, when rendering a view.
