BIMstore is open for business

imageI got an email from the guys over at BIMstore to say that after an intensive beta testing process, BIMstore is now officially open for business!

So what is BIMstore? Well its a place for manufacturers to place content and its a place for designers to find content. As the site says, “all content and downloads are totally free. The content is created in cooperation with manufacturers, ensuring accuracy and quality. The BIM components are”virtual models” of real manufacturers products and contain all the data for design, analysis, scheduling and specification. They can be used throughout the design process, from concept designs all the way through to construction. Some can even be used beyond construction and utilised for FM”.

A quick browse through the site and you will discover the content uploaded so far is of a very high quality.


You will find content from the following manufacturers….generic content is still limited, but expect that to grow over the forthcoming months.
