BIM models

Manufacturer Specific BIM Objects in CAD Software

Building Informational Modelling is a planning process in which the building is being built from real, manufacturer specific products virtually. Designers are expected to be more and more specific when giving information and also during the design. Expectations are not only coming from the investors but from builders as well. Only good quality, CAD software compatible BIM objects can meet these expectations and the main interest of the development is always the manufacturers’.

Manufacturer specific BIM has the following advantages

We develop for the following platforms:

  • helps products’ fast and correct selection
  • gives extra information and help to the design process
  • provides efficient workflow
  • results an esthetic, realistic display
  • simples and fastens the design process
  • the floor plan contains direct manufacturer products


Aspects for BIM development concept

  • Which competing companies do already have BIM objects?
  • What are the expectations of the architects? Which design software are they using?

With our expert advice we are always happy to help when declaring the aspects and creating the development concept. Éptár, in the past 15 years has, has released more than 10 000 products for ArchiCAD and other software such as Revit, pCon.planner or 3DS.

Assessment of needs, shaping of a concept for the function of BIM objects:

We can model the possible function with the help of our available solutions during the coordination with the manufacturer. We model the functionality of the object according to the notion of the manufacturer during the creation of the development concept, but we also take into account the user needs and the special qualities of architectural softwares known to us. As such, we get user friendly and easy to handle BIM objects as an end product.

BIM software development

The name Éptár was created back in 2002 by ArchiData Kft. Back then our company was making BIM solutions for ArchiCAD and other CAD software for 5 years already.

In 2006 Éptár was separated from ArchiData Kft. and started to develop exclusively GDL content and Add-ons. In the last 12 years our company developed more than 50 solutions and over 200 GDL library.

Our goal is to develop useful solutions for CAD users to support the design process.

Add-on programming or GDL library

In the program ArchiCAD, our main profile, two complementary solutions can be made: GDL libraries or Add-on solutions. Our team is ready to do both kinds of development. Our GDL programmers and API developers are waiting for challenges.

The question of which solution we recommend is in all cases reliant on the to be modeled objects and the excpected complexity of the solution.

If the modeled products are more like placeable objects by themselves which have no connection to one another, or have only limited connections then usually the creation of a GDL library is the solution. GDL objects like our doors and windows libraries or our furniture and sanitery libraries.

More complicated product solutions, working with a particular logic or requiring the coordination of several details will usually require an add-on solution. With the help of an add-on we can excpect more complex functionalities from the BIM object. Good examples of this would be our roofing applications. These tile the given roof surface and allocate the necessary extras like roof foil and snow shields automatically, keeping in mind the rules of roof tiling. Allowing for fast and high quality work in the usual software.

Terrán RoofTiling designer

ArchiCAD solution for roof tiling process. User defined roofs tiling visualisation and calcualtion with an easy one step method. Photo realistic textures (fast) or real 3D tiling models are also supported.

Key features:
  • full structure definition in one step
  • real 3D models and 2D drawings
  • exact component lists
  • free configuration methodes
  • real manufacturer products
  • complex system definition in one step

Internorm Online Window-Door configurator

This GDL Library contains all the products, which is available in the Internorm product lists.

  • Wizard style user interface
  • full product range
  • real 3D model and 2D symbol
  • Shading and glasing options
  • Predefined consignation template
  • real manufacturer products
  • complex system definition in one step

Custom software

Applications in an online enviroment

Applications run with an internet browser or browser supplements. These applications can be downloaded or used via the internet by the wider audience. This way, product information can reach the broadest user crowd, making them known in a wider circle, meaning they can be perfectly used as a marketing tool as well.

Creating software independent applications

It is possible to create configurational or editing programs independent of architectural designing programs. We developed these applications for professionals who don't necessarily use CAD or BIM systems. In many cases these solutions were built into the manufacturer's post factum sales system.

E.g. Our previous Internorm door and window designer solution is easily accessible for everyone. With the programs help you can easily and swiftly assemble unique doors or windows, which can then immediately, through electronic means, be ordered.
