With the introduction of CAD software and their subsequent evolution, data generation has been rising at a phenomenal rate. At the same time, managing this data is a tough task. This situation is highlighted, especially in the AEC industry, as every project generates tonnes of digital content. Companies and firms need to maintain a variety of this content because this can uplift the quality of BIM models.
Content from planBIM is capable of acting as a single source of objects for BIM projects. The design of the module allows anyone to upload Autodesk® Revit families, templates and component files. Generally, in AEC firms, these types of records are placed inside folders with a complicated naming system. However, Content keeps track of every component that is uploaded to let users access them via instant search or filter options. These options are incredibly variable and dynamic with unique preferences to organise elements based on their Disciplines, Tags, Level of Information (LOI), among other choices.
As a measure to speed things up, planBIM Content can let users upload multiple Revit families in the form of a batch.
