Why is BIMcontent.com so strict about the quality and consistency of Revit content hosted on the site?
For manufacturers asking this question, it’s perhaps best explained using a familiar analogy. As a product manufacturer, the quality of your products is key to your success. Your customers can depend on you, so much as no matter which product they purchase or specify from your product portfolio, there is an implied guarantee of the quality of the product. Your customers habitually work with you owing to this level of trust. But let’s say you introduce a new range of product throughout your product portfolio which is substandard, or differs greatly in quality / performance / reliability of the rest of your range, and that these products are not defined as being as such. Pretty quickly (immediately?), that trust is lost and there is an inferred risk in buying / specifying your products, and your customers start looking for another supplier they can trust in a more holistic capacity. Ergo, it’s generally a better strategy to have a slightly smaller portfolio if the trade-off is adding products that compromise the trust your customers have in your brand and portfolio as a whole. It’s the same with Revit content (or any format of BIM content for that matter). Poor quality BIM content has the potential to cause serious issues to project design models. Designers use BIMcontent.com as their primary project design resource as they know they can trust the quality of the Revit content hosted on the platform, owing to our stringent quality controls.
