How to research, discover, and design products using BIMsmith Market and BIMsmith Forge.
1. Search for Exactly What You Need
But once you have arrived at BIMsmith, you can begin with a search for exactly what you are looking for, like "Velux Fresh Air Skylight." You can even include detailed modifiers that describe exactly what you need, such as by finish, dimensions, and other properties, like "21" wood skylight".
2. Use Filters to Narrow Your Search

3. Compare Products
Once you have narrowed down your selection, check the Compare Box and click "Go To Compare" to see product data side-by-side.
