BIMLibrary: 3D object database with extra attributes

BIMLibrary is an soon-to-be-launched Building Information modeling (BIM) component library for architects and designers that will, among other things,

… support the retention and export of accurate product attributes and performance characteristics from the preliminary design stage all the way through to final construction document creation, thereby reducing errors and omissions which result in change orders and cost overruns during the construction process.

Sounds a bit like what Avi Bar-Ze’ev was wishing for a few weeks ago. Future versions of BIMLibrary will support SketchUp, apparently.
