Progman has announced that Europe’s largest BIM library, MagiCloud, has been updated to include the full product information already available in MagiCAD. The cloud-based MagiCloud includes more than one million BIM models and technical details from 230 manufacturers, used primarily by mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) designers. The tool is instrumental in developing a BIM strategy for construction projects.
Some of the latest technical features that will benefit end-users include:
- Improved search function in MagiCloud, helping designers find products more quickly
- Ability to search products from 40 market areas
- Easier downloading of the 3D models, without requiring any installations
- Improved German and Chinese localisations
Bookmarking, enabling users to gain quick access to their search results via a unique URL, and to share them
“Today’s construction projects need to benefit from using BIM, so a detailed 3D plan is created before the build begins,” said Jukka Nyman, managing director of Progman. “This enables contractors, architects, MEP designers and engineers to have detailed 3D models, including all of the technical specifications of the building’s MEP elements. Calculations and analysis can be run, and a ‘shopping list’ of components created. It saves considerable time and expense to know a building is going to work before the foundations are dug.”
