BIMcloud/BIM Server Libraries are located on the BIMcloud or BIM Server, but added to your project. You can add a BIMcloud/BIM Server Library to any project, either solo or Teamwork (provided that you can access the server).
To use a BIMcloud/BIM Server Library in either a Teamwork project or a solo project,
•the library must first be uploaded to a BIMcloud/BIM Server;
•and then it must be added to the project using ARCHICAD’s Library Manager.
Advantages of using BIMcloud/BIM Server Libraries
•Whenever a BIMcloud/BIM Server library is updated and refreshed, this update occurs for all users, both solo (after reloading the library) and Teamwork (after doing a Send and Receive).
•Updates from the server occur with “delta logic,” that is, only the changes are sent.
•A server library’s contents are cached on a Teamwork user’s machine and are read locally. In contrast, a linked library is always read through a network.
