Axis Camera Families now available for Autodesk Revit

24 Sep 2013

Axis Camera Families, the 3D camera models for Autodesk Revit users, are now available through Autodesk Seek, one of the most widely used building information modelling (BIM) web services in the market.

Axis is launching the Axis Camera View add-in for Autodesk Revit, giving architects, engineers and security system designers a quick way to create 3D views from the security camera’s point of view from inside their CAD designs. Autodesk® Seek® allows architects, engineers and security system designers to easily find, preview and download 3D models of Axis Communication’s, the world leader in network video, security cameras. With access to Axis’ portfolio of security cameras at their fingertips, architects, engineers and security system designers are able to interactively visualise camera layouts and fields of view during the design.


Axis Camera Families let security system designers place Axis Network Cameras directly into CAD building plans and visualise the areas the cameras will cover. The CAD models allow them to see exactly how the cameras fit into the building layout and to easily detect and reduce unexpected blind spots.

With the new Axis Camera View add-in for Revit, users can quickly get a 3D view of their CAD design, as seen through the lens of the Axis camera. This makes it easy to get a good impression of what the final surveillance scene will look like at an early stage in the design project, see film.

“Building Information Modeling is the established industry standard process for designing, visualising, and simulating buildings in 3D before they are constructed. Autodesk Seek is a widely used and well-known source for BIM models, which can be accessed directly within the design workflow of AutoCAD® and Revit users”, said Nicolas Mangon, Senior Director, AEC Industry and Business Strategy, at Autodesk.

“Making Axis Camera Families available on Autodesk Seek means architects and engineers can now easily access a tool that helps them improve planning and work more efficiently. This will result in more effective value engineering, device placement, conflict identification and aesthetic coordination” said Peter Friberg, Director of System and Services at Axis Communications.

Axis Camera Families for Autodesk® Revit® includes the vast majority of Axis Network Cameras, is available free of charge and can be found via the following links at Autodesk Seek and Axis website.
