the largest Czech manufacturer of concrete building products is BIM Ready
The digitization of the construction industry is progressing and now we bring you products from the Czech manufacturer BEST. The BIM catalog contains more than 4,000 items and over 900 product types. The catalog contains outdoor architecture, transport infrastructure, and masonry system products.
Architects, designers, and other users can search and filter products in the BEST BIM catalog, which is available on the manufacturer's website. To generate BIM objects faster, you can use the BIM catalog in plugins for the design software Archicad and Revit, which can be downloaded here.
Appearance of the BEST BIM catalog
A useful function is the ability to configure your own paving color combination according to the selected composition and thus generate a texture for use in visualizations (for example in the popular Lumion SW). If the user accesses the BIM catalog from design software, they can insert the texture directly on the marked terrain or area, including the corresponding hatching.

You can of course download BIM objects from the web version of the BIM catalog. However, a more interesting piece of news is the option to create your own BIM objects, i.e. to choose the parameters the resulting BIM object should contain directly in the plugin. This function can also be used on filters, so the user only needs to insert the general geometry with their own set of required properties for the product. The parameters in the project can be easily updated or the required properties can be replaced for a product and vice versa.
