Global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. (Vectorworks), and BIMobject AB (BIMobject) today announce that the BIMobject App, that integrates the BIMobject Cloud with direct access to manufacturers' product libraries, will be provided as a part of Vectorworks Architect 2017 Service Pack 1.
The BIMobject App will be available for all Vectorworks 650,000 users as a pre-installed tool, where no installation will be necessary. This is the latest BIMobject tool that will allow users to instantly, and with ease, search, browse and select BIM objects for direct placement into their BIM projects in Vectorworks.
The BIMobject App for Vectorworks is unique in that it manages and downloads not only Vectorworks native content, but also transparently converts file formats from AutoCAD, SketchUp and 3DS, in the BIMobject Cloud into information-rich Vectorworks content. This is done entirely in the background and delivers the exact user experience no matter the format of the source data. It will allow Vectorworks users access to over 4,600 product families from 260 brands as of today.
"The fact that the BIMobject App for Vectorworks is pre-installed is really good, giving direct access of up to 650,000 potential designers for all our manufacturers and brands that are published in the BIMobject Cloud. It will be a great synergy with the Vectorworks application and make the BIMobject Cloud the preferred choice for downloading BIM objects and product information from the web", says Johan Dyrssen, Team Lead Web & App Development, BIMobject.
"The BIMobject App in Vectorworks 2017 is a major milestone in our continued mission to provide designers with access to building material and product specifications for building information models", says Robert Anderson, Vice President of Integrated Practice, Vectorworks.
"We're extremely proud to be releasing such a content-rich app, and we greatly appreciate the support of BIMobject in helping make this a reality".
