3D CAD/BIM Content

While HPH does NOT develop 3D CAD content, we do partner with the leading content developers in North America.

As more and more contractors are using BIM, it is important that product CAD files used by engineers and contractors are populated with HPH’s transactable content.

Contact HPH at to inquire about developers that can provide the necessary CAD files.

Promoting Industry Integration withTransactable Content

HPH works with all the leading estimating and CAD systems used by today’s contractors. By inserting our HPH Item Codes in the databases used by these systems, HPH can facilitate workflows between software systems. This includes the submission of material transactions to wholesale distributors.
