The BIMobject® App for ArchiCAD toolbar
The complete BIM object catalogue of the BIMobject® Cloud is integrated into ArchiCAD. Search for an ArchiCAD file directly in ArchiCAD, without having to shift between windows.
Download the file you want to use with one click and it’s ready to be placed instantly in the model you are working with without ever leaving.
If you want more information about a product, simply mark it and click the info button.
Check for updates
The app is connected to the BIMobject® Cloud and thus ensures that all the placed objects are the same version as on the portal. If there is 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.
Add extended properties to selected objects, using BIMobject Open Property Cloud.
Update the extended properties to selected objects.
Soon you will have the ability to turn on and off specific BIMobject properties in the IFC output. This means that you will have full control over what goes into the IFC file after it is exported from the system. (This button is coming soon.)
If you have questions about a specific product, you can contact the manufacturer directly from within ArchiCAD, while manufacturers can use BIMmail to inform users about product news and updates.
This is where you find your user identification key. LCF and plan files can not be placed into the embedded folder, so a folder can be specified where to put these files. Also, the default behavior can be changed so instead of using the embedded folder, the GSM files also can be placed into this given folder.
Simply click this button if you need any help.
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 bimobject.com.
