PARIS, February 16, 2012 -- The Abvent Group, editor and publisher of Artlantis, is pleased to announce the launch of BIMobject, a new resource for architects and designers working with BIM/CAD modeling software. Architects, designers, interior designers, engineers, and construction companies can search, filter, and download BIM objects into their own CAD/BIM systems such as ArchiCAD, Autocad, Revit, or Allplan. Many of the objects are in Artlantis format.
The web-based portal supplies the building industry with digital replicas of products used by architects, designers, and construction companies. BIM objects can be downloaded free of charge. Users will have access to products with the product information integrated into their BIM system. As a result, manufacturers gain high visibility for their products and are integrated into the design and construction process.
"Abvent is pleased to share the news about this innovative architectural and design resource with Artlantis users," Xavier Soule, CEO of Abvent said. "BIMobject offers obvious benefits for architects, designers, and manufacturers alike," he continued.
All product information is integrated into each BIM object. Architects and designers do not have to interrupt their design process to look for product information. Materials, configurations, types, classifications, custom 2D symbols, optimized 3D geometry as well as other relevant product information are immediately available. Links to the manufacturers' websites and PDF files for installation and maintenance documentation are included with each BIM object as well.
BIMobject creates virtual product and web catalogues for use by CAD/BIM users. BIMobject links CAD/BIM technology to the building industry to develop and manage digital replicas of their products as BIM objects. BIMobject also assists companies with market analysis, business and lead generation, and helps manufacturers publish their BIMobjects in the most effective way possible. BIMobject puts building and interior design products at the architects' fingertips, allowing them to download and use them in their design and specification process.
Since 1985, the Abvent Group has offered innovative image and design solutions for CAD and BIM professionals in the fields of architecture and design. Abvent's cutting-edge approach to digital imagery has resulted in unique products and services that are innovative, powerful, and easy-to-use.
