The platform consists of product libraries that contain thousands of free BIM and CAD models, product information and other files. The user can browse products and configure the available properties of each product. Once the properties are set, the product can be added directly to the desired SketchUp model.

Content management

One of the main features of ProdLib application is the background functionality ensuring that the latest product data and content is always available for architects and engineers. When connected to internet, the application checks regularly that the latest version of the content is in use. If there’s an update available, it’s clearly indicated to the user.

Once the required content has been downloaded, the libraries can be used even in the offline mode.

If the installation requires administrative rights, users can still manage existing libraries or download new ones without the administrative rights.
