BIM FOR MANUFACTURERS

CREATE BIM OBJECTS TO GET SPEC’D IN

Deliver smart BIM objects that make it easy for architects and contractors to specify the use of your products in their building and construction projects.

What are BIM objects?

BIM objects are digital representations of building products and materials that can go into intelligent building models. Manufacturer-specific BIM objects contain 3D representations of the product along with associated metadata, such as Omniclass classification, material, model number, MEP connections, and service information.
