BIMcloud as a Service enables real-time, secure teamwork between architects in the cloud. With your BIMcloud as a Service subscription, you get access to your own private BIMcloud server hosted by GRAPHISOFT in the Google Cloud Platform. No IT setup required – just start the service and within less than an hour you are ready to share your teamwork projects in the cloud.

Before you subscribe to our service, we suggest you to check your internet connection if it is meeting our recommendations.

Check your connection

Follow these steps to check your internet connection if BIMcloud as a Service is recommended with it.

  1. Check your internet speed. We recommend to use Speedtest.net - the most famous and most popular internet speed test on the web, provided by Ookla.
  2. Check the latency of your network towards the nearest Google Cloud Server (see List of Available Regions for BIMcloud as a Service below) with GCPing.
