BIMobject will now offer Vectorworks native BIM objects, joining, ArchiCAD, Revit, MicroStation,SketchUp and others

Nemetschek Vectorworks and BIMobject have signed a cooperation agreement, which will see BIMobject host Vectorworks native file formats on its portal.

The two companies will build up an initial set of manufacturers objects, including preexisting BIMobject content. All of these BIM objects will also be available and distributed by Nemetschek Vectorworks through a multivendor private cloud, offered with the support of BIMobject Cloud solutions.

There are also future plans for developing tighter integration and enhanced collaboration between Vectorworks and BIMobject’s cloud platform.

"We joined forces with BIMobject to deliver a streamlined way for Vectorworks designers to access up-to-date, manufacturer-approved BIM content," said Robert Anderson, vice president of integrated practice at Nemetschek Vectorworks. "Our partnership supports our desire to provide increased access to building material and product specifications that live in a building information model – valuable data that decision-makers involved with the design, construction and maintenance of a building need to be successful."

“We've seen a huge demand from Vectorworks users over the last year for content from our BIMobject Cloud portfolio,” added Stefan Larsson, CEO and founder of BIMobject AB. "For our building product manufacturers, this completes our offering across BIM platforms and delivers a significant user base dedicated to the Vectorworks platform that will benefit in additional business and customer satisfaction."
