New BIMobject App released for ArchiCAD

GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD gains BIMobjects App for its leading BIM solution


From Malmo, Sweden, BIMobjects® today announced that the cloud integration App for GRAPHISOFT’s ArchiCAD, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) architectural software developer, has been launched. The App is completely free of charge for all users of ArchiCAD worldwide, giving the ArchiCAD user a toolset to find, source, update and check BIM objects supplied through the BIMobjects website cloud completely integrated into their software.

App is Unique to BIM Class

The integration of this App is completely unique and is the best-in-class web service integration inside of ArchiCAD, notes the company. The App functions to quickly browse the BIMobject cloud database online and find real products from real manufacturers. A simple click to download and the BIM objects are loaded into the ArchiCAD user’s project, ready for placement and further configuration.

Another useful feature is the ability to check for updates. The App will check to ensure the actual version of the placed object in your project is the same version as the cloud. If there is a newer version of the actual product in the cloud, the product information can automatically be transferred to the already downloaded files. This is a feature not seen in any other solution and gives a completely new way for manufacturers to update product data and add new properties to already downloaded objects.

BIMail Integration

The App also consists of a BIMail integration. ArchiCAD users now have the ability to send and receive BIMails directly from inside their BIM software, making ArchiCAD ‘social.’ Manufacturers can use BIMail to inform users about product news and updates through BIMail inside the ArchiCAD system.

The App for ArchiCAD is only available currently for Windows versions of ArchiCAD but is immediately available for download, or from within ArchiCAD 17. The App is also compatible with ArchiCAD 15 and 16 versions. And the App will be available for Mac OS X in the second half of July.

“We are very excited about the new BIMobjects App for ArchiCAD. We are also proud that we now have the most extensive set of features of any BIMobject App. This is a revolutionary step, showing the BIM world what cloud can do for us now and in the future,” said Akos Pfmeter, Director of Global Marketing, GRAPHISOFT.

Architosh Analysis

The BIMobject App for ArchiCAD is the third such App for a major CAD/BIM project following Autodesk AutoCAD and Autodesk Revit before that. Those Apps don’t seem to have all the features of the App for ArchiCAD however.

This is a great feature to add to ArchiCAD and helps level the playing field advantage with content creators with its chief rival Autodesk Revit. It is great news to hear that the Mac version is not going to be too late.
