Graphisoft has developed a new tool to enable designers and manufacturers to create BIM objects suitable for use in ARCHICAD without GDL experience or programming knowledge. To show just how easy the tool is to use we've developed a broad set of generic FFE objects and made them available on the NBS National BIM Library.
In November 2016 we launched our latest survey in a bid to understand how the industry is changing the way it writes specifications as it continues to adopt digital ways of working. We're now ready to share the results in the NBS Specification Report 2017.

We often talk of the digital construction revolution but what are the top tech trends on a mission to transform the industry? We look to the skies, welcome our new robot overlords, and discover what a world powered by big data will deliver.
This article introduces some new public beta functionality that allows models and specifications to be uploaded and viewed from the context of a project within the NBS BIM Toolkit. We’re hoping that this new functionality will be well received by NBS users within their existing BIM workflows.
