BIMobject Inc., the North American subsidiary of BIMobject AB, has announced that Autodesk has appointed BIMobject its exclusive reseller in North America and Europe for new subscriptions of Autodesk Seek, a cloud-based building product content delivery system. The announcement was made at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) convention on Friday, May 20, 2016.
Additionally, BIMobject is an early adopter of the Autodesk Forge Platform, which consists of a set of Autodesk cloud services, APIs, and SDKs for developers to quickly create the data, apps, experiences, and services that power the future of making things. BIMobject leverages Forge APIs for content creation and “on-the-fly” content configuration workflows.
The Autodesk Seek web service enables architects, engineers, construction professionals and other design professionals to quickly discover, preview, and download branded building information modeling (BIM) files, models, drawings, and product specifications for their active design sessions in Autodesk Revit or AutoCAD software. Autodesk’s new relationship with BIMobject will extend and strengthen the offerings available to customers.
For building product manufacturers, Autodesk Seek offers a digital way to connect with the professional designers ultimately responsible for specifying and recommending their products for purchase. This will also, combined with the BIMobject Cloud, be the ultimate digital marketing channel for BIM objects.
“This collaboration unites the most powerful set of building product content delivery tools ever compiled and delivers them to the global AEC community and building product manufacturers,” says Doug Bevill, President North America of BIMobject, Inc. “This is a historical day for the global commercial construction industry, and we are proud to announce our collaboration at the most important architectural expo of the year.”
“Collaboration with Autodesk Seek means that we will together create a strong alliance that will shape the future of cloud based product information within the BIM process,” added Stefan Larsson, CEO and Founder of BIMobject AB. “The solutions we can offer together to the global industry of building product manufacturers are second to none.”
“Autodesk has a long history of providing a scaleable and open platform in the AEC industry,” says Autodesk VP of AEC Industry Strategy and Marketing, Nicolas Mangon. “As founding members of buildingSMART, we are committed to a truly open and shareable BIM approach. We are delighted to work with BIMobject who will expand our Seek offerings to our customers and further enable these customers to access even richer content in Revit.”
