Today CAD symbols are replaced by BIM objects. BIM objects still carry the representation of your products in 2D and 3D like a CAD symbol would, but they also carry so much more. In a BIM object you can also add links back to your product information, your website, contact details and montage instructions.
The BIM objects are smart by nature and can contain functions like how they should be operated, how the windows swing and open, and of course all visual qualities.
