Make Sure You Do BIM Content Properly!

If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly!

Later we’ve seen an increase in the number of building product manufacturer (BPMs) wanting BIM content built (for mainly Revit & ArchiCAD).

Because of this a lot of “providers” are jumping on the band wagon. Some good, some not so….

BIM content is designed to make the life of the CAD/BIM user easier, so make sure the content you are having developed meets their needs. As they are the top priority!

As an example (whilst on a recent search engine mission) we downloaded some window objects for ArchiCAD (from a directory we won’t name) that were supposedly parametric. However after downloading them and adding them to our ArchiCAD project, we discovered that they had just been poorly thrown together and there were no parameters at all?!  What use is a window object that no one can resize or adjust?

We contacted the manufacturer & are helping them to sort this problem out. As they don’t want poor BIM content with their name on it floating around (it’s not helpful to their customers & certainly isn’t good for their branding).

Have you got BIM content (for Revit, ArchiCAD, Bentley or Sketchup) that you would like checked? We are happy to take a look over it for free. Simply email us at info@barringtonarch.com
