BIM stands for ”Building Information Model” and it is winning ground fast within the AEC area, especially in Scandinavia. There are a large demand from the users to have real manufacturer content (BIM objects) available to be able to create more information rich BIM models that better supports the design, construction and simulation process with BIM.
A BIM object is an information container that holds information like measures, configurations, material, classes, properties and also 2D and 3D information for the BIM software (Next generation 3D CAD). The cooperation between DOCU group and BIMobject will increase the visibility for the manufacturers objects and simplify the the way Architects and engineers can find the BIM objects and download them to their favorite BIM system. The benefits are high quality BIM objects that are guaranteed to be coming from the actual manufacturer and quality controlled by BIM experts from BIMobject AB. Making these objects easily accessible from the ByggfaktaDocu web site is a great step forward for building industry.
”It is a crucial step for the DOCU group to incorporate modern BIM process and content on our portal, making it accessible for all disciplines in the industry. Starting in Sweden is a good thing, with good processes and classifications in place.” Says Pär Fack CEO of Docu Sverige AB.
”The cooperation with the Swedish branch of the Docu group is an important step in our neutral way of publishing BIM objects on the web that will be the infrastructure for all BIM content for manufacturers to be able to develop and maintain product content in the construction industry.” says Stefan Larsson, CEO of BIMobject AB
