Online BIM library BIMobject has signed an agreement with Autodesk to transfer operations of the Autodesk Seek business to BIMobject.
The arrangement means that BIMobject will assume the operational responsibility of providing Autodesk Seek customers with BIM content services from the BIMobject cloud.
Visitors to the Seek.autodesk.com website will be redirected to www.bimobject.com, which will assume hosting and publishing of Seek customer content. Former Autodesk Seek customers on the BIMobject cloud platform will be provided package offerings equivalent to, if not more robust, than their former packages.
BIMobject is an avid developer on the Autodesk Forge platform, a groundbreaking tool for solutions like Mosquito, which offers an unbroken information flow from manufacturing to digital product marketing, and BIMscript & LENA.
BIMobject’s new release, BIMsupply, also developed using Autodesk Forge platform technology, will be an additional future option for building product manufacturers. With BIMsupply, customers can capture new business opportunities with increased communication with designers, engineers and specifiers direct from the BIM models and project information.
Stefan Larsson, CEO and founder of BIMobject, said: “It is an honour for us to take over the Seek business from Autodesk. We are committed to the BIM content business and will do our best in giving both manufacturers and Autodesk users the best possible customer experience and business value. Our commitment to Autodesk technology and solutions is stronger than ever with our future solutions based on Autodesk Forge and Fusion 360.”
Scott Reese, vice president of cloud products at Autodesk, added: “BIMobject is one of the most active developers on the Autodesk Forge platform, so they were a natural choice for our Seek customers. We are confident that through this agreement and continued collaboration with BIMobject, building product manufacturers and designers will continue to have a BIM content platform that solves the challenges of today and tomorrow.”
