The GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud is a multi-component server application used to support Teamwork, a client-server technology that enables fast, simultaneous access to projects for multiple clients. The BIMcloud is connected through the network to several ARCHICADs, which are the clients in this system. The BIMcloud enables efficient management of multiple, large-scale Teamwork projects and is therefore optimal for large company operations. It addresses fundamental issues related to hosting a large number of projects on several server computers – including
An ARCHICAD client can access only those Teamwork projects which are located on a BIMcloud Server of the same version number as the ARCHICAD client. If the ARCHICAD client’s version number is different from the BIMcloud Server version number, communication can take place only after you install a BIMcloud Server of the same version number as the ARCHICAD client.
However, ARCHICAD can access all BIMcloud Managers whose version number is equal or greater than ARCHICAD version number.
