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.
- Do you design, manufacture or fabricate building products or equipment in the commercial, residential or public sector?
- Do your customers expect you to supply them with BIM compliant product data?
- Are you currently having to manage or pay third parties to create and manage, parallel libraries of your products in a totally different design tool?
Autodesk Manufacturing Portfolio is an easy, agile solution that will put you back in control of your design data whilst giving you the competitive advantage.
See how you can author and export BIM objects
Simplify the level of detail
Convert high-fidelity manufacturing models originating from any commonly used CAD software into lightweight representations appropriate for use in building model
Author BIM objects
Create BIM objects that include key product attributes, such as product metadata and MEP connection points. Then, export them to formats compatible with Revit and other BIM software.
Automate product configuration
Speed up the configuration of custom products with a powerful, simple to use automation engine and deploy to an online configurator accessible to your sales teams and customers.
