It was clear that several of the main speakers at the Nordic BIM Academy in Copenhagen emphasised the importance of information availability on the OpenBIM information platform.
REVIT MEP and BIMeye showcased in the process
With the focus on Revit MEP, our Symetri consultant, Pierre Gullander, showed how easy it is to work with Revit MEP and Naviate in an open BIM process together with several other BIM tools. In the demo, Symetri received the model from the architect as an IFC model and showed how the HVAC engineer can easily capture the model, work with it in Revit and pass it on as an IFC model, exported through Naviate IFC export – one of Symetri’s own customised solutions for Revit.
Thanks to Pierre Gullander’s ability to make something very technical almost fun, the demo was very well received by the audience, even if not everyone was used to working with Revit. The features from the Naviate IFC export also impressed the audience, especially those who know and work with Autodesk Revit.
BIMeye as a difference maker
Another Symetri solution shown in the process was the BIM cloud solution BIMeye.
BIMeye is all about the importance of making information available on an open platform and creating common ground where everyone can participate in creating working sets and methods (BIMeye Apps) that apply to him/her in his/her specific role or task in the project.
Our demo by our BIMeye consultant Petter Alm led to discussions around OpenBIM during the conference on broader aspects than ‘just’ IFC and CoBie; even if both of these are important ‘carriers’ of information between different systems in the BIM process.
”We are very happy that we participated at the Nordic BIM Academy. We had some really positive feedback and interesting dialogue at the conference we are looking forward to following up in separate meetings in the coming months,”
says Mats Persson, Business Unit Manager at Symetri Project Services.
As reported earlier this autumn, BIMeye has now reached a level of recurrent usage which means that there are presently more than 500 registered users in the BIMeye database, covering more than 150 clients and approx. 100 ongoing projects.
”Taking all this into account, we’ve now reached a comfortable situation with BIMeye as the difference maker for our customers, and with the requests that are currently coming in we feel confident that the success will continue,”
appraises Mats with a happy smile, after participating in the Nordic BIM Academy.
