Sign-up guide

Try the free demo

Have a play with BIMSearch for free! Click on one of the “free demo” or “try now for free” buttons on the website home page and you will be taken straight to a free version of BIMSearch that enables you to explore all the features using our demo project.


Note: nothing you do in the demo will be saved, and you won’t be able to access any of your own projects. For this, you need to sign up (for free) to the free 30 day trial.

30 day free trial

Once you are ready to try BIMSearch for real, on your own projects, click the “access your projects” button in the demo (or the “log in” button on the website home page) and you will be able to sign up for free to BIMSearch for a 30 day trial of BIMSearch Premium.

You will have a welcome email from BIMSearch in your inbox. Here you will find a link to the BIMSearch Demo project, so that you can start exploring BIMSearch even before you have access to your own BIM 360 projects!

Access your projects

If your company does not already have a BIMSearch account, your hub administrator will need to conduct a custom integration (enable BIMSearch on the Autodesk site).

For instructions on how to do this, see the post “Administrator setup instructions”.
