Free Revit content from BIMobject

The Swedish company BIMobject (www.bimobject.com ) has been around for a while but in the last couple of years it has been elevated to the premier site for downloading Revit content, in my view.  The reason for this, I think, is that Autodesk decided to pass all the content they had on their content site called Autodesk Seek to the BIMobject site.  This together with the free marketing has done wonders to the BIMobject cause.

BIMobject also has a Revit add in (downloaded from the Autodesk Revit App Store here) whereby you can search for manufacturer’s content from within Revit itself.

BIMobject not only host’s Revit content but also other vender’s content so many building professionals use this site which in turn draws the manufacturers to have their products published to the site.

Once the Revit addin is installed and you have registered on the site you can access the content on the BIMobject toolbar as shown:
