MagiCAD Manufacturer Services have renewed the MagiCAD Cloud branded pages service to provide MEP manufacturers a BIM platform for their products. Branded pages are a personalized way of showing and sharing manufacturer’s own products in MagiCAD Cloud. They also connect MEP designers directly with manufacturer product selections. The relaunch brings new functionalities and better connectivity for the branded pages.
New functionalities for branded pages
The new functionalities consist of manufacturer defined product classification, creating and publishing manufacturer collections, and possibility to add advertisement banners on the branded pages.
Manufacturer defined product classification means that manufacturers are able show unique product groupings defined in product modelling. For example, Aquatherm has created unique product groups for blue, green, and red pipes as well as pre-insulated fittings in their branded page. End-users can filter products based on these product groups in addition to existing product classes.
Creating and publishing manufacturer collections is another highly requested feature that we have now brought into the branded pages. Manufacturers are able to easily create and publish their own collections on their pages for end-users. By creating collections, manufacturers can help end-users find products that are connected to each other.
In the Manufacturer Hub, manufacturers can now manage advertisement banners for their branded pages. This is an opportunity to highlight new products or other important updates in the library for end-users.
Connecting MEP designers and manufacturers through MagiCAD Connect
MagiCAD Connect allows MEP designers to insert manufacturer BIM objects directly into their projects. An updated Connect ribbon in Revit, MagiCAD for Revit and MagiCAD for AutoCAD makes manufacturers’ branded pages easily available and allows designers to design with ease. With the help of the branded pages, MEP designers can easily find connected products from the same manufacturer for their design without researching product compatibility.
