TURKU, Finland, Aug 27, 2018 – MagiCloud Connect, Progman’s add-in application for Autodesk Revit, enables BIM object downloads from the online BIM platform MagiCloud directly into native Revit projects. The add-in is available for Autodesk Revit versions 2017-2019 and can be downloaded free-of-charge from the Autodesk App Store at apps.autodesk.com.
MagiCloud Connect enables MEP designers to download BIM objects from MagiCloud and insert them directly into native Revit projects as parametric Revit families. MagiCloud is the world’s largest online library of manufacturer-verified 3D BIM objects for MEP design, including over 1,000,000 MEP products from leading international manufacturers, and the only BIM platform to offer online selection and configuration tools for MEP products.
By offering access to MagiCloud’s online tools for selecting and configuring manufacturer-specific MEP products, the MagiCloud Connect add-in enables the user to configure products and insert them into Revit projects in user-defined sizes and with customisable product properties. MagiCloud currently features online product selection and configuration tools from the manufacturers Vallox, offering a selection of air handling units, and Purus, enabling detailed configuration of floor drains.
When the MagiCloud Connect add-in is installed on top of Autodesk Revit, the MEP designer can instantly begin using a selected portion of MagiCloud’s BIM objects in Revit projects. Currently, MagiCloud Connect enables free-of-charge access to approximately 10 percent of MagiCloud’s entire selection of BIM objects. Users of Progman’s own MEP design software MagiCAD for Revit and AutoCAD can download and use all of MagiCloud’s over 1,000,000 BIM objects directly through the MagiCAD user interface.
The MagiCloud Connect add-in for Revit is easy to install and use. The add-in is installed on top of Autodesk Revit in the same way as any Revit add-in application. The installation adds the MagiCloud Connect tab to the Revit ribbon, making it easy to access MagiCloud directly from the Autodesk Revit user interface and to search for specific MEP products and product types. When a suitable product is found, the user can insert the product into the Revit project by simply clicking the Install button.
