Integrated issue management and model checking in the cloud with the BIMcollab-Verifi3D link
BIMcollab and Xinaps announce an integration in one of the least digitalized parts of late design and pre-construction stage. The newly introduced interworking between Xinaps’ model checker, Verifi3D, and BIMcollab’s issue management software, brings to the AEC industry a seamless, comprehensive workflow within the model checking process.
Erik Pijnenburg CEO of BIMcollab: “In order to stimulate BIM collaboration, it’s our vision to integrate BIMcollab with as many solutions as possible. That’s why we offer open source API’s, which are now successfully used by Xinnaps to build an easy to use integration between BIMcollab and Verify3D. We are very happy to welcome Verify3D users in our eco system.”
Empowering project collaboration
The issue management system in the cloud operates across applications, empowering project collaboration. BIMcollab is designed to manage issues during the design and construction phases where BIM is used. Verifi3D empowers designers and general contractors with the right tools to validate their BIM data, automate hard clashing checks and mitigate risks during the model checking process real-time.
Bringing these two workflows together helps bridging the differences between BIM tools and targets the multidisciplinary cooperation between companies working on construction projects. Now, issues found with the Verifi3D Model Checker can be published to BIMcollab real-time. The BIM modeler will be automatically notified and can immediately locate the problematic objects in their BIM Model whatever the authoring tool (Revit, ArchiCAD, etc). Once a solution is found, a simple click allows the issues to be reported and resolved.
Frank Schuyer, CEO of Xinaps: “We’re excited to announce a new integration that makes the model coordination and the issue tracking process easier and more efficient for everyone. By using the integrated processes of BIMcollab and Verifi3D, all project stakeholders from the field to the office can participate in issue tracking and resolution throughout the project life cycle.”
“Model coordination may now become a full-team effort, providing accessibility to team members who have little or no experience with data validation software and processes. This provides value to our clients, allowing them to easily harness the power of their models and communicate the project design, check model development, and resolve issues quickly and easily. By bringing together BIMcollab’s issue management abilities and Verifi3D’s data validation and model coordination features, we are providing the best of both products.”
Combining the cloud-based structure of Verifi3D and the powerful BIMcollab workflows users already know and love results in a time-saving, seamless integration. Interworking between Verifi3D and BIMcollab allows project teams to save time by automating clash detection, increase the quality of their models by early data validation and create a single source of truth for issue management across the entire project team.
