BIM Software and 3D Models


BIM software is used to build 3D models (designs) of projects. This allows for collaboration by stakeholders in a common data environment (CDE.)

The most popular software used to produce BIM 3D models and objects is Revit. This is the software used by the BIM Men to make BIM objects for our clients.

Other software systems used to build BIM models include Tekla, Bentley and Nemetschek. There are others too. BIM objects in IFC file format should in theory be able to be imported into such systems and between one another.

Industry Foundation Classes

IFC, or industry Foundation Classes, is a standard in which data is represented and used to define architectural and construction-related CAD graphic data. IFC adds a common language for transferring information between different BIM applications.

Revit Software

Revit is software ( 3D modelling tool) for BIM, used by architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, designers and contractors. Revit provides professionals with tools to create intelligent 3D models which can then be used to design, build, and produce construction credentials.

COBie Standard Data

COBie (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange) is simple and clear format for delivering assets data. It's an Excel spreadsheet file with some rules on the structuring and content of the provided data. It contains tabs which list information on the products or building and much much more.
BIM object data in COBie format should be able to be imported into proprietary facilities, asset and property management systems to create assets for ongoing operations management.
