Library Part Maker
BIM Library Parts deliver the ‘I’ in BIM reliably. That means all the details of the library part content such as 2D Symbol, 3D Representation and especially Information data structure must always be relevant. Library Part Maker, an ARCHICAD add-on, delivers BIM library parts as standard based on BS8541-1/2/3.
- Easily create detailed Library objects for ARCHICAD and OpenBIM software: Free add-on for ARCHICAD to create and manage importing of new Library objects.
- Quickly create scale sensitive 2D Symbols and 3D representations: Level of Detail-based (parametric) objects for traditional documentation as well as BIM-based workflows across the building industry.
- Easily comply with published British Standards for Library objects: Identification and Classification (BS8541-1); 2D Symbols for drawings and documentation (BS8541-2); Shape and Measurement (BS8541-3).
- Attach your data to library part objects so you have the ‘I’ in BIM: “One-click” import of data from spreadsheets; Increase data quality and simplify bulk data sets import; Comply with data requirements specified by COBie-UK-2012, NBS BIM Object Standard or any Product Data Template as required.
- Put all your product and object information in Architects’ hands: Designers can concentrate on designing with ability to specify your product with one click.
The new release of LPM now covers all basic GDL-based ARCHICAD tools such as Door, Window, Skylight, Lamp and Generic object as well as Handle and Window Shutter accessory objects. The user interface was simplified with introduction of a dockable palette that complies with new ARCHICAD 20 User Interface look. New and improved workflows include automated de-bugging checks, streamlined save and update workflows and object subtype selection. Also we have updated the LPM template with additional examples to help our users with definition of new subtypes (Skylight and Lamp).
