Great news for those working in the French version of Revit. Thanks to Eurostudio, our partner in France, AGACAD’s TOOLS4BIM Dock (2018, 2017) is now available in French!

And not only the Dock, but 3 tools are also en français:

Excel2R imports tables from MS Excel into Revit and retains style and format settings, significantly speeding up project documentation by synchronizing with the original spreadsheet, keeping your tables in Revit and in Excel tightly linked.

Smart Browser Free lets you easily find families on your computer, check their types and parameters, view them in 2D or 3D, and then drag-and-drop to add elements to your project.

Smart Browser Simple/Power lets you easily find Revit families on your computer or company server, check their types and parameters, view them in 2D or 3D, and then drag-and-drop to add elements to your project.

To use any of the above tools in French, just choose a Revit version (below) and download the TOOLS4BIM Dock in French:

SHK logoThe SHK (Sanitär-Heizung-Klima) Fair will take place in Essen, Germany, on March 6-9. We’re excited to be taking part in this event, courtesy of our partner Contelos. Our MEP engineer Jokubas Vaisvila will be in attendance with Contelos at booth C44 in hall 1. If you will be at SHK-Essen, we invite you to visit!


Come hear about BIM team workflow, BIM Model audits, and BIM object creation, management, and sharing within a BIM team. From our side, Jokubas will be giving live demonstrations focusing on fire protection design, including sprinkler design and fire component details. In addition, he’ll be showing what’s related to BIM MEP coordination, namely, pipe routing, clash-avoidance, wielding Cut Opening, preparing builders work drawings, and laying out hangers.

Let's start off with a brief look at what BIM is. The purpose of BIM is to give each actor just the information they need at just the right time throughout a building’s lifecycle to support its effective design, creation, and use.

  • The “B” in BIM stands for “Building” – since it’s about methods and technologies for the effective design, creation, and use of buildings.
  • The “I” in BIM stands for “Information” – the 3D representations and non-graphical data in the digital model of a building. It’s the key to managing a building throughout its lifecycle.
    • Besides 3D information – for design, engineering, and production – there’s also
      • 4D information that incorporates time (scheduling, planning, and control),
      • 5D which adds costs and analysis,
      • 6D that includes sustainability, and
      • 7D which looks at facility management over the entire lifetime of an asset.
  • The “M” in BIM has three meanings:
    • “Modelling” – the collaborative processes by which actors create, update, and store relevant information about a building throughout its life.
    • “Model” – the ‘data container’ or digital model of a building where information about the building is stored.
    • “Management” – actors’ use of a building information model for their needs.

Libraries in BIM

Currently there are plenty of software options available, any one of which can be selected as a BIM environment for design. Most of them use generic libraries that favor the development region or country’s standards (Revit and US standards, DDS-CAD and German standards, etc.). To design a real building, we need real-world elements with real behavior.

Thank you.
