What is ARCHICAD Library Part Maker?

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.

Features and benefits

  • A straightforward means of creating component BIM objects.
  • Create the object geometry using ARCHICAD or simply import popular file formats (.IFC, .3dm, .3ds, .dwg, etc.)
  • Adding data is easy, and you can also import data from an Excel spreadsheet.
  • No GDL experience or programming knowledge required.

Use the Morph Tool to geometrically model your object.

“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.”
