7 benefits of a 'connected' workflow when validating BIM models

In today’s BIM world, OpenBIM is a must in most projects. Delivering and receiving projects in OpenBIM ensures efficient collaboration between all stakeholders. BuildingSmart created IFC format as an open concept, so all stakeholders can use them without being limited to particular software. 

IFC file format was used as a delivery file, but we intend to use it in our everyday workflow. So regardless of the BIM modelling tool, you can always collaborate, and the whole team works the same way. We will use IFC to check what we are sharing with the team.

Nowadays, the role of a BIM manager or a BIM coordinator is getting more specialised. Model checking and validating are becoming increasingly complex due to the variety of tools and specialised disciplines. In this article, we want to compare two of the most known model validation tools: Autodesk Navisworks and BIMcollab ZOOM. The goal is to compare features and workflows. Are you familiar with any of them or both? Are you curious about the other one? Let’s get started!

Tegenwoordig is het delen van BIM-informatie essentieel voor succescvolle bouwprojecten. Teamleden in verschillende rollen vertrouwen in hoge mate op de informatie uit BIM-modellen. Maar omdat er doorgaans een groot aantal modellen wordt uitgewisseld tussen verschillende disciplines, kan de kwaliteit van data en modellen van anderen niet worden gegarandeerd. Het is dan ook onvermijdelijk dat bouwteams te maken krijgen met variatie in datakwaliteit.
