A new tool to enable designers and manufacturers to create BIM objects in ARCHICAD to the NBS BIM Object Standard.Download from ARCHICAD
Graphisoft has developed a new tool to enable designers and manufacturers to create BIM objects suitable for use in ARCHICAD. The tool can be used to create objects with the data required to meet the criteria of the NBS BIM Object Standard.
Use the Morph Tool to geometrically model your object.
Select the NBS BIM Object Standard property sets.
Select the data you want to add to the object, based on NBS BIM Object Standard structured data.
You can now see a list of all the properties you’ll be adding to the object’s property set.
If you have data in an Excel spreadsheet you can import it into your object.
You can see the data from Excel imported into the BIM object, showing the property (on the left) and product value (on the right).
Final BIM object in use.

You can download the tool from ARCHICAD or download this guide.

“Having created BIM objects in ARCHICAD using a variety of different tools and workflows, I can’t recommend the new ARCHICAD Library Part Maker more highly. It’s easy to use, intuitive, and required no programming knowledge at all.”
Stuart Clark, Director, Constructive Thinking.
Constructive Thinking now uses ARCHICAD Library Part Maker to create all of its custom objects, doors & windows.
The creation of BIM objects for the inclusion on the National BIM Library includes Omniclass classification codes and titles.
