Some of these features are a direct result of the successful BIMserver Breakfast in November at TNO; some come from the intense contact with some of our users.
This release of the open source bimserver software is, without a doubt, the ‘best bimserver ever’. The team doesn’t stop developing and new plans are already being deployed.
The latest release is now available for download at The demoserver (which was offline during the final stage of development) is back online as well. Check it out on

Together with the new software, the team also launches their new website. Because our software is stable and professional, our site also needed a more professional layout.
With this new software-release and the new website the and it’s users are ready for the future.
