BIM Object Creation & Hosting

Based on the ever-changing landscape of the construction industry we are now working with our Building Product Manufacturing customers in a very different way. We are now being asked to provide a whole host of services and solutions that have been developed in house to enable our clients to work towards BIM, all of which are related to the development and marketing of BIM Objects.

BIM Objects are an integral part of the BIM process, underpinning and helping standardise elements within the master BIM model. Object creation produces simplified versions of manufacturers products, providing an information-rich simplified 3D model that is usable by Architects, Engineers, Contractors and Specifiers.

One of the biggest challenges is the delivery of Objects in multiple file formats for use in multiple software systems.  Through collaboration with our partners this is something we can now offer in house.

BIM Object Hosting

To maximise return on investment (ROI) in Object Creation, clients are now looking to use this new way of working as a sales and marketing tool to get more exposure to their company, products and services.

This is being done in several ways. Some clients are hosting content on their website, but most are using dedicated BIM Object Hosting Services.

All our Objects are created to the requirements of our clients meaning they can be hosted on any platform and work to any standard.

Majenta Solutions are now able to offer a full end to end solution from Content Creation to Hosting, as we have recently formed a partnership with BIMobject.

BIMobject is the global number 1 BIM Object Hosting Service and is changing the way in which Objects are hosted, specified and updated throughout the project lifecycle.

The BIMobject Cloud is an internet based central database holding all BIM object information and BIM files.

The BIMobject Cloud is built in a way that we search engine optimise every product that is published on the portal since we use permalinks and every product gets a unique URL. The portal only contains products from real manufacturers, we don’t publish generic components or BIM components that represent products that are discontinued. We always work in close cooperation with every manufacturer.

The BIMobject Cloud also hosts branded web catalogues: Product Sites, that allow manufacturers to have their own branded site. Furthermore, all BIM objects can be used in social media like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Houzz.

We also allow other building information portals to retrieve the objects through web services, both the possibility to query the server for an XML catalogue but also the ability to integrate the products as iframe’d BIMobject, this is called Channels.

BIManalytics Core is a pre-sales, business and marketing analytics tool to follow up on leads connected to downloads from the BIMobject® Cloud.  It is a prospect and lead generator, an enabler for business matching, as well as a communication tool to engage with direct and indirect influencers.

BIManalytics Core local users can use the iPhone App, which offers a quick and easy way to directly access updates regarding leads and to evaluate and communicate with new leads and prospects. The App is free, but requires the sales representative to have a BIManalytics Core local subscription with a sales region set up by their BIManalytics Core administrator.

A BIMobject® Product Site is a microsite for building and interior product manufacturers. It enables manufacturers to create and maintain their digital product catalogue on their own website with the main focus on BIM objects. BIMobject Product Sites can be tailored to each manufacturers’ needs with an individual look and can be embedded into any web environment.

  • "We’ve really appreciated Majenta’s consultancy – they’ve been liaising with some of the large contractors who are now relatively advanced in BIM for help and feedback on what we’ve done and their response has been very positive."
