What does convergo do?

Convergo is a conversion service which helps product manufacturers converting their CAD files (e.g. STEP file) into BIM models (e.g. ArchiCAD, Revit, SketchUp, AutoCAD, etc.). These intelligent models can be used by architects and designers in numerous projects, such as building and construction.

3D Models

By providing these BIM models to your contract architects and designers, they will preferably use your products in their designs which results in higher sales for you as the product manufacturer. Additionally, you will not only satisfy the architects´ needs and consequently increase sales figures, but also save time of your sales representatives and focus on modern relationship management: With online digital BIM and integral product data, contract architects and designers will download intelligent objects. As a result, sales representatives can spend more time on building relationships and helping customers in value-added, context-specific, customized ways.

Why use Convergo as your BIM object provider

Convergo helps to create light models which are parametric and hold meta-tag information to create a BIM model used in BIM projects.

Parametric Models: are models whose size, color, material or any other property can be easily changed by a few simple clicks. This helps the designer/architects to select their desired kind of objects while designing.

BIM (Building Information Modeling): is information embedded into the model which helps the architects and designer in the process as they can easily see information about the product sizes, weights, its materials, variations and manufacturer.

Lighter in size: Furthermore, Convergo-created models are very small in size and have a much smaller number of polygons compared to the original model.

How does it practically work?

We use our own established steps for the Convergo service:

  1. Sending form to client requesting information about the product and the formats they need, e.g. DWG, Revit, or any other format.
  2. Converting the product into the required formats with embedded information.
  3. Sending the requested formats back to the client including a PDF file which contains information about the format´s size, polygons, etc.

Who is Convergo?

We are a young, dynamic and international team who wants to provide a simple and fast service which will be flexibly adapted to your specific requirements. Furthermore, we as the Convergo team want to be a reliable partner as your BIM consultant in long-term relations. Convergo is part of the future and has the following visions:

  1. Being More Parametric
    Creating models with lots of complex properties like textures, colors, sizes etc. which can be easily controlled by user. GDL language skill required.
  2. Providing Container Files
    A container compressed file which contains all the textures of the whole collection of objects provided by manufacturers.
  3. Fully Automated
    Fully automated system in which a manufacturer can log in and can get the parametric models with all the properties and formats for his clients. The process can be simply done as shown below.
  4. Globally
    A worldwide service which can be used by all the companies around the world to get their BIM models.
  5. The Planner
    A 3D Planner which will be used for planning, creating 2D and 3D layouts, getting Bill of Materials and making visualizations. The Planner will use Convergo-intelligent models and will be a tool for re-sellers and planners to create professional quotes and plans both for professional customers and consumers.
