Smart Browser is a universal BIM solution for data organization in the form of an Autodesk® Revit® loadable element library. Smart Browser's purpose is to simplify Revit library creation, give flexibility in browsing families, and ensure full control over the families stored in a given library.
Smart Browser is software designed for speed and precision. Unique features save lots of time and improve results for BIM managers, team leads, architects, designers, and structural and MEP engineers. The modular approach makes it efficient and cost-effective for single users as well as for offices of all sizes. Three main modules – named “BIM Manager”, “Team Leader”, and “Team Member” – provide different functionality to meet company and user needs. Additionally, Agacad provides a free version of the tool named “Smart Browser Free”.
