BIMmTool for Point Clouds

Mjules

The Graphisoft France (the former Advent) has a powerful add-on named BIMmTool. It can help maximize the workflow with the point clouds in ArchiCAD:

You can download it from here. I would like to see it available on the Graphisoft.com too to avoid losing it like we lost Twinmotion in the past.

Is this free for SSA or Forward users?

There should be some subscription plans. I just contacted the Graphisoft local partner about that. You can try reaching out yours too regarding that. I find this add-on interesting!

Hi Botonis,

This will be a partially  license needed Add On. I've found this on the Download page (Translated from German):

"BIMmTool Navigator runs on any compatible Archicad without a licence. For modelling with BIMmTool Connect or BIMmTool Pro you need a licence"

Thank you back, Mahmoud!

I work on pointclouds almost everyday, i think that archicad itself can do the job quickly, in the videos, bimmtool looks loke it makes your life easy, but when it comes to real life,  you'll waste time dixing inappropriate model interpretation, misplaces objects, updating sections from bimmtools to archicad, checking verticality with tons of plan sections,

In archicad, you can work locally by zone selection,  3d filters and cutting planes, to make model interpretation easy.

Archicad need to hadle point louds better, if the p c is bigger than 4 GB, archicad should automatically split it into pieces as needed,

So, if you know where to look on the main Graphisoft website, you can find it.

 

But why is it not in ...https://graphisoft.com/resources-and-support/downloads?section=add-on

with all the other partner add-ons?

Keep all the add-ons in one place please.

It depends on the point cloud size and the kind of the work to achieve. I guess this add-on can help both in architectural and urban design fields. We can model in detail lots of historic or heritage buildings much quickly.
