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 of product types. The catalog contains products of outdoor architecture, transport infrastructure, and masonry systems.
Architects, designers, but also other users have the opportunity to search and filter products in the BEST BIM catalog, which is available on the manufacturer's website. For the faster generation of BIM objects, it is possible to use the BIM catalog in plugins for the design software Archicad and Revit, which can be downloaded here.
The appearance of the BIM catalog BEST
Useful functionality is the ability to configure your own color combination of pavings according to the selected composition and thus generate a texture for use in visualizations (for example in the popular program Lumion). If the user accesses the BIM catalog from the design software, he can insert the texture directly on the marked terrain or area, including the corresponding hatch.

Of course, it is possible to download BIM objects from the web version of the BIM catalog. But a more interesting novelty is the possibility to create your own BIM objects, ie. to choose directly in the plugin what parameters the resulting BIM object should contain. This function can also be used on filters, so the user can only insert 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 with a product and vice versa.
