MagiCloud said to be first BIM library to enable advanced product search based on ventilation system operating point and sound attenuation
Users of the free online BIM object library MagiCloud, which offers access to manufacturer-verified BIM objects for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) design, can now search for products based on functional parameters. According to the developers, this not only means MEP designers will spend less time searching for suitable BIM objects , but they can also rely on the accuracy of the object’s technical data content for calculations.
“With MagiCloud, the user can make advanced searches based on specific product types, diameters, dimensions, and even functional data, such as sound attenuation and system operating point when designing ventilation networks”, comments Vilhelm Backman, Product Manager for MagiCloud at Progman.
MagiCloud is developed by the Finnish MEP software vendor Progman, and has over 1,000,000 data-rich BIM objects of commercially available MEP devices and components from 250 international manufacturers. BIM objects are available for Revit, AutoCAD and MagiCAD software. It boast 150,000 users.
