CAD Studio releases new cloud application which opens BIM data from Autodesk Revit for all types of users
Mar 23, 2016 --
CAD Studio Inc., specialized supplier of CAD, CAM, GIS and BIM solutions, releases a new advanced solution that helps investors, owners, contractors, managers and users of buildings to easily navigate in a building information model (BIM) and quickly find any requested information. BIMForMe does not require any knowledge of complex BIM authoring and 3D modeling systems and so it opens valuable BIM data not only to building professionals but to all non-technical users.
The application BIMForMe brings basic and advanced features for working with BIM data created in Autodesk Revit software and any accompanying documents - all in an intuitive and user-friendly environment suitable for both experienced professionals and laymen.
"The new cloud-based CAD Studio tool "BIMForMe" was first introduced at this year's conference BIM Forum 2016, and met with great acclaim among the participants. In my opinion, our market lacks this type of application connecting BIM data model, generated in the design and construction phase, with the real needs of the owner or operator of the building," mentions Peter Jirat, BIM consultant.
BIMForMe lets you browse the virtual 3D model, view 2D documentation and search for individual building elements using filters and reports. The user working in a cloud environment on attributes of model elements can not only view but also change and enter new properties. Documents can be attached to the individual elements, such as technical specifications or warranty certificates. For example, a technician can find a damaged HVAC equipment, verify its last inspection n the spot on his smartphone and find the nearest similar device.
"With our new app, users can be confident that their valuable information on the building will be always at hand and yet not fall into the wrong hands. All documents and properties are stored securely on the server and individual user accounts can be assigned to groups with different kinds of access rights," adds Martin Slanec, manager of the AEC division at CAD Studio. "The application, designed and developed by CAD Studio’s developers, is being enhanced rapidly. For example, we are working on a feature notifying about the important upcoming deadlines – planned inspections, warranty expirations, and other new functions for facility management (FM). We will also record incidents and attach them to the elements of the model."
With BIMForMe all the information about a building can be stored in one location accessible from anywhere. The user can access the information anytime and anywhere, including from mobile devices, without having to install any expensive and complex software. The application is currently available in the Czech and English language versions.
