The App has functions to quickly browse the BIMobject cloud database online and find real products from real manufacturers. A simple click to download and the objects are loaded in the ArchiCAD user’s project, ready for placement and further configuration.
The App will check to ensure the actual version of the placed object in your project is the same version as on the cloud. If there is a newer version of the actual product in the cloud, the product information can automatically be transferred to the already downloaded files. This feature gives a completely new way for manufacturers to update product data and add new properties to already downloaded objects. This solves the issue of keeping and maintaining data up to date, great for the user and manufacturer.
The App also consists of a BIMail integration. ArchiCAD users now have the ability to send and receive BIMails directly from inside their BIM software, making ArchiCAD ‘social.’ Manufacturers have the ability to use BIMail to inform users about product news and updates through BIMail inside the ArchiCAD system.
Building and interior product manufacturers also can obtain their own branded button. It opens the private cloud of that particular manufacturer inside ArchiCAD so the user can browse that manufacturer’s products directly. The manufacturers featured will update on a monthly basis through web services, and is directly connected to the cloud solution.
