Focal Point expands Architectural Lighting Design Resources through BIMsmith Partnership

Focal Point LLC, a premier North American manufacturer of commercial lighting solutions, has partnered with BIMsmith® to expand its suite of free digital Building Information Modeling (BIM) resources for the global architecture and building design community.

The partnership involves the addition of more than 150 Focal Point lighting product models to BIMsmith Market, a free cloud platform for architects, designers and contractors to discover and download building product data for use in their design projects. BIMsmith Market simplifies the product research and selection process for building professionals, streamlining a cumbersome workflow into a single experience.

Each of the Focal Point product models on BIMsmith Market is compatible with the industry standard in building design software, Autodesk Revit. The Focal Point BIM Library can be found on BIMsmith Market at, as well as on the Focal Point website:
