Access your projects – hub integration


BIMSearch is a web application allowing data extraction from BIM models that are stored on the Autodesk BIM 360 or Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC) platforms.


This means that in order to see your projects and models, BIMSearch needs to be given permission to the Autodesk hub on which your models are saved. This process is called “hub integration”.


Hub integration is free, takes a few seconds, and only needs to be done once per hub.

Hub integration - hub administrator

If you are the hub administrator or the account admin for the Autodesk account where the hub is, then skip straight to the section “Instructions for giving permissions”.


If you are NOT the hub administrator, you need to get in touch with them and ask them to do the hub integration. Send them this post.
