I’m an Archicad user and I’d like to see more Archicad content from manufacturers on BIMcontent.com. What can I do to make this happen?
To a large degree, this is about supply and demand. A lot of manufacturers either have never heard of Archicad, or if they have, the requests from designers for Archicad content are not as regular as they are for Revit content. If you’re an Archicad user and you want to see more Archicad content on BIMcontent.com there’s two main things we’d suggest you can do. 1. Click the ‘Missing BIM Content’ button on the site and let us know which specific manufacturers you want Archicad content from. We can then reach out to the manufacturer and let them know there is demand from specifiers (i.e. their customers) and therefore benefit for them to create and host Archicad content on BIMcontent.com. 2) speak directly with your preferred suppliers and tell them you want Archicad content from them! We are still amazed at how often we speak with manufacturers and they’ve never heard of or been asked for Archicad content, especially when on the flipside, we hear from so many Architects who use Archicad lamenting that manufacturers aren’t offering Archicad content for their products. If you do speak with any manufacturers and they need help creating Archicad content, tell them to reach out to us and we’ll be glad to help them out.
