Global Product Data (GPD) announces the full release of GPDTools, which offers direct access to manufacturers product data and Revit families with just the click of a button, it’s a simple tool with innovative tagging technology to annotate manufacturer product data into Revit families at any point in the design workflow.

GPDTools gives Revit users direct access to manufacturers with THESource, a database of over 1,100 manufacturer specific BIM libraries which features search assist and in-application search by Revit category or key word to speed up the product selection process.

Once a family is selected, GPDTools’ ProductTAG feature then streamlines the product selection process by adding manufacturer product data into a Revit family with just a click of the ProductTAG icon on the product page.

GPDTools allows all products within a manufacturer’s product line (with or without Revit Family files) to be available for product selection within any Revit project design.

Manufacturers can help drive product selection by signing up with GPD to provide product data to design professionals through GPDTools. This collaboration between manufacturers and technology plays a vital role in developing a time-saving resource for design professionals.

GPDTools are currently free and available for Revit (versions 2012 - 2014) at

GPD Founders Mike Collins and James T.Jackson were early pioneers of a database of manufacturer specific Revit content, which was free to the Revit user community, with their company BIMWorld and in 2008 Autodesk purchased BIMWorld.
