BIM | ArchiCAD Object Resources
If you have been trying to look for a collection of resources on free and/or paid objects for ArchiCAD use, Graphisoft have compiled an extensive list here: Objects for ArchiCAD.
Browsing through an extensive list or catalog of objects is a very taxing task.
If you feel like their list is just way too long or you don't have the time to try which ones are worth the hassle to register your details with (or even pay your hard earned money), then you've come to the right place. Below are just a few object resources that I personally have tested, you might find some of them useful for your projects.
|Modlar||Free w/ Registration||Simple and efficient, allowing you to instantly drag and drop building products into your design.|
|NBS National BIM Library||Free w/ Registration||A comprehensive and growing collection of BIM (Building Information Modeling) objects spanning all building fabric systems.|
|SpecifiedBy||Free w/ Registration||Started out as a ‘CAD library’ trying to connect architects, designers and other specifiers with building product manufacturers using CAD models and has naturally developed into a ‘Specification Library’, with all relevant data required to make a decision about a building product.|
|RubySketch||Free w/ Registration||An online library of 3D models free for architects, builders and designers to download to use in their designs.|
|COR||Free||Provides you with free CAD files for downloading. You receive the data as ArchiCAD-GDL library elements (GSM), in DWG format or 3DS format as a complete zip archive.|
If you know of any other good ones that’s not on the list, feel free to share them below and I’ll be more than happy to add them on the above list.
Browsing through an extensive list or catalog of objects is a very taxing task. That's mainly why I dedicated a good amount of time to learn GDL. It was not an easy task but I have to say, the journey is one of a kind.
