The BIMobject® App for ArchiCAD toolbar

Browse products

The complete BIM object catalogue of the BIMobject® Portal is integrated into Revit. Search for any ArchiCAD file directly in Revit, without having to shift between windows.

Product information

If you want more information about a product, simply mark it and click the info button.

Check for updates

The app’s connected to the BIMobject® Portal and thus ensures that all the placed objects are the same version as on the portal. If there’s an updated version of a product, the new product information is transferred directly to the already downloaded file. This unique feature makes it possible for manufacturers to update product data and add new properties to already downloaded objects, while users are certain that they work with the latest version of all objects.

Featured manufacturers

This unique feature gives building and interior product manufacturers the opportunity to market their products with a Branded App Icon in the toolbar in the user's program of choice. Through a simple click on the specific manufacturer's button, users can browse all the products in the manufacturer's Private Cloud. 

This direct marketing tool makes it easy for users to find and use a manufacturer's products directly in their design, increasing the chance that the products are included as early as possible in the design phase. It also drives more traffic to the manufacturer's Private Cloud, which generates more downloads and more leads.

The Branded App Icon is updated on a monthly basis through our web services, and is directly connected to the cloud solution at http://bimobject.com
