BIMCLOUD Annual Subscription
BIM WITHOUT CONSTRAINTS
GRAPHISOFT’s BIMcloud offers real-time, model-based BIM collaboration for companies and projects of any size. It works on any network, hardware or software configuration. With the help of its mobile integration through the cloud, all stakeholders of the design build process can actively be connected 24/7.
Safe and Secure
The GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud is by design suited for even the most stringent enterprise-level workflow and security requirements to provide fitting solution to the collaboration issues of companies where collaboration is a mission critical part of conducting everyday business. Advanced user role management, LDAP support and further features offer the ideal solution at larger and/or geographically dispersed teams.
Teamwork with BIMcloud does not require IT skills from architects. Team members can reserve parts of the project or work on individual floors, sections, elevations or layouts. Automatic, real-time element reservation helps everyday work by providing exclusive access to specific design elements without any hassle, while BIMcloud ensures the integrity of the project database in the background.
Fast on any network
BIMcloud uses GRAPHISOFT's patented “Delta” technology to provide an ultra-fast design sharing and collaboration platform. Only the element changes are sent between team members, so the network load is minimal, making bandwidth irrelevant.
BIMcloud enables not only real-time design work on the same project, but also provides an instant collaboration platform. The color-coded workspace helps to identify who is working on what. Thanks to BIMx PRO, design issues can be resolved through instant messages and annotated screenshots using tablets and smartphones.

BIMcloud can be deployed on premise or in any private or public cloud platforms, and can be integrated with centrally managed company IT systems (e.g. “Active Directory”).
The BIMcloud Manager is the central component of the GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud Solutions that takes care of connecting all other components regardless of location (i.e. across the office, across town or around the world). BIMcloud Manager itself is free of BIM data. It contains only a single integrated list of all BIMcloud Servers, BIMcloud Projects and BIMcloud users with their defined roles and permissions.

- BIMcloud Server hardware can be freely altered without any interruption to the workflow of clients.
- BIM project data is exclusively stored and managed by the particular BIMcloud Server where the shared project is located.
The BIMcloud Clients can access and manipulate the BIM project data from the BIMcloud Servers through the BIMcloud Manager’s interface. BIMcloud Clients can be computers in the office, mobile computers or mobile devices (i.e. tablets or smartphones, etc.) in any location.
- The BIMcloud licensing scheme is based on the number of concurrent users accessing BIMcloud at the same time. Each connected user requires a BIMcloud User License.
