Do I need BIM Cloud?

When searching for a library object, I used to have the option of searching BIMcloud libraries. Now that I'm using R23, I no longer seem to have this option.

So I rambled off into the BIMcloud weeds, downloaded it, set it up, and can now see that it seems to be set up mainly for Teamwork users. I'm not using Teamwork - I just want to access some online libraries.

I'm stuck at the window where I need to enter a server address; do I need to set up a BIMcloud server? Is there a generic Graphisoft server address I need to input, in order to regain access to the libraries I used to use?

Thanks for your help, apologies for my newbie-ness.

Do you mean BIMComponent rather than BIMCloud?

When you search in the object settings it automatically searches BIMComponents.
However it seems not to be working at the moment.

Seems to be working again now.

If you go to the bottom of the object settings (and you are not in search mode), you will see a link to the BIMComponents portal.
