BIMobject, Inc., the North American subsidiary of BIMobject AB announced today at The American Institute for Architects (AIA) convention in Philadelphia that Autodesk has appointed BIMobject its exclusive reseller in North America and Europe for new subscriptions of Autodesk® Seek, a cloud-based building product content delivery system.
Additionally, BIMobject is an early adopter of the Autodesk® Forge Platform, which consists of a set of Autodesk cloud services, APIs, and SDKs for developers to quickly create the data, apps, experiences, and services that power the future of making things. BIMobject leverages Forge APIs for content creation and "on-the-fly" content configuration workflows.
The Autodesk® Seek web service enables architects, engineers, construction professionals and other design professionals to quickly discover, preview, and download branded building information modeling (BIM) files, models, drawings, and product specifications for their active design sessions in Autodesk Revit® or AutoCAD® software. Autodesk's new relationship with BIMobject will extend and strengthen the offerings available to customers.
For building product manufacturers, Autodesk Seek offers a digital way to connect with the professional designers ultimately responsible for specifying and recommending their products for purchase. This will also, combined with the BIMobject Cloud, be the ultimate digital marketing channel for BIM objects.
"This collaboration unites the most powerful set of building product content delivery tools ever compiled and delivers them to the global AEC community and Building Product Manufacturers. This is a historical day for the global commercial construction industry, and we are proud to announce our collaboration at the most important architectural expo of the year," says Doug Bevill, President North America of BIMobject, Inc.
"Collaboration with Autodesk Seek means that, we will together create a strong alliance that will shape the future of cloud based product information within the BIM process. The solutions we can offer together, to the global industry of Building Product Manufacturers, are second to none. BIMobject has been a committed App and content developer for Autodesk for many years, and our huge success with the BIMobject® App for Revit has been phenomenal. BIMobject will focus hard on this partnership in the US and also expand our use of the Autodesk Forge platform in order to make this a mutually successful and viable cooperation," says Stefan Larsson, CEO and Founder of BIMobject AB.
