In some recent Graphisoft news, the company in January has signed a strategic partnership agreement with BIMobject AB which aims to better serve the ArchiCAD community with the broadest range of intelligent BIM components available on the Web and in their native (ArchiCAD) BIM environment.
The Importance of Building Components
“Building components are as mission critical to the design and realization of buildings as standard construction elements are,” said Akos Pfemeter, Director of Global Marketing at Graphisoft. “We expect our customers to greatly benefit from the extended range of product families and manufacturer content that will be directly available to them with the addition of BIMobjects.com as a content source to both ArchiCAD and BIMcomponents.com,” he added.
“BIMobject is committed to assisting architects and designers in realizing their designs with premium quality BIM objects of real, confirmed and approved products from existing manufacturers,” said Stefan Larsson, CEO of BIMobject. “We believe that ArchiCAD’s GLD technology and the end-to-end workflow that we are building from the manufacturers to architects and designers will greatly improve the quality of the BIM process throughout the entire lifecycle of BIM projects,” Larsson continued.
