I don't think BIMcloud Basic has been discontinued instead it was compiled into one BIMcloud Installer file. When the installer file is run during the setup you can choose the BIMcloud Basic version and it'll work the same as the previous versions.
I panicked when I saw this. I am pretty sure we have BIMcloud Basic, looked at the SaaS version but cannot justify the expenditure at present. What's the difference with BIMcloud and BIMcloud Basic? We installed it years ago when it was BIM Server and kind of lost track of how it has evolved.
@MscottSaaS stands for "Software as a Service" (meaning a hosted product) ... NOT "Subscription as a Service". Instructors in the BIM Manager Course also incorrectly call it Subscription as a Service. Of course, typically SaaS is done via subscription, which may be where the confusion steps in. But, worth not muddying the waters 🙂

Friday's Cross-Canada Internet outage is one sure reason why the BIMcloud product should be sold and supported here in North America. No market for it? Sorry, but that is a pretty lame rationale you've offered.
Greetings, so if BIMcloud Basic for Archicad 26 has not been discontinued, where can I find the installer? On the International website I only see the BIMcloud-2022.1-126.96.36.19900-1.2-INTEL version, is this version compatible with AC26?
Thank you for posting your feelings. It appears there is a misunderstanding. BIMcloud Basic and BIMcloud Saas are the two products sold in North America. Our Key Accounts team has a meeting with your firm leadership next week to discuss this topic. We can address any questions at that time.
For others on this thread, BIMcloud Basic has not been discontinued.
Yes Barry, In other GS Sales markets, there is an upgrade from BIMcloud Basic to BIMcloud. I was told originally that the upgrade had been discontinued. Then I was told that it wasn't discontinued, but rather just not offered in North America.
