What is a BIM object?

A BIM object is a combination of many things:

It is detailed information that defines the product and geometry that represents the product’s physical characteristics. The visualisation data that gives the object a recognizable appearance and behavioural data, such as detection zones, enables the object to be positioned or to behave in exactly the same way as the product itself.

There are two primary types of object: component and layered. The component objects are building products that have fixed geometrical shapes such as windows, doors, boilers etc. Layered objects are building products that do not have a fixed shape or size such as carpets, roofing, walls and ceilings.
