BIMobject® Hercules is a cloud solution for large companies to develop, organise, structure, standardise and manage their own BIM objects, and also publish and syndicate these in a controlled way to project groups anywhere in the world.
Hercules provides a cloud-based content management solution to support digital construction. It is intended for contracting, construction, consultancy and architecture companies to manage and control their BIM content in a cloud-based environment, allowing thousands of users to share the same BIM content.
Hercules has been developed as a platform and is an integrated part of the BIMobject Cloud. It enables companies to self-manage an extensive range of BIM content including documentation, CAD files and BIM objects, and to have a Single Source of Truth, version handling, structured data, support for languages and various classification systems.
As a cloud solution, Hercules is available in any location and on any device through a web browser or from within CAD/BIM packages through our BIMobject® Apps. It is an easy and proven way to publish objects and information to project-specific user groups. Manufacturer-specific objects already available in the Public Cloud can be linked into Project Sites by the project owner. It makes it easier and faster to give access to high-quality BIM objects controlled by the owner.
The platform is extremely scalable with various user roles and cloud apps. Project owners can upload their own proprietary corporate BIM objects to various Project Sites, then attach different property sets such as COBie. With user groups, the owner can deploy these into the internal organisation or to external design teams.
· BIManalytics® Core™ provides information for the central organisation about usage, downloads and versions.
· BIMobject® Properties delivers huge flexibility in Property Data Management.
· Mosquito allows the development of BIM objects in a web browser.
· Project Sites are secure, project-based microsites with user control.
· Product Administration enables cloud-based management of users, groups, clouds, content and Apps.
· Direct BIM system integration: Revit, ArchiCAD, SketchUp, AutoCAD and Vectorworks.
Hercules runs under SSL which means that sensitive data is encrypted. Hercules enables organisations to exercise complete control over their BIM objects, including which users can access Project Sites in order to use objects. Data changes within objects can be monitored through an automatic audit trail.
With the BIMobject® App for AutoCAD, finding, downloading and placing 2D, 3D and DWG objects into your current project is only a few clicks away. The BIMobject® App supports AutoCAD versions 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.
The BIMobject® App for Revit integrates the BIMobject® Cloud into Revit and is one of last year’s most popular downloads among Revit Apps. It’s similar to the BIMobject® App for SketchUp and especially suited for building design and construction professionals, for instance those working in mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems. The BIMobject® App supports Revit versions 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.
The BIMobject® App for SketchUp is compatible with SketchUp 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 for Windows and Mac OS X. Versatile and user-friendly, this app is the perfect sketch tool for just about anyone; architecture students, architects or interior designers just to name a few.
The BIMobject® App for ARCHICAD 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, and 22 is the most advanced of all our apps. Suited for both Mac and PC, it’s the perfect tool for architects and everyone else looking for an app with more advanced features.
The BIMobject® App for Vectorworks has been shipped with Vectorworks Architect 2017 service pack 1. With this App you can use content not only with the formats VWX, but also DWG, SKP, and 3DS. Users will find the BIMobject tool in the Architect workspace in the “Furn/Fixtures” tool set. No installation necessary!
