BIM For The Brave

There is a lot of files flowing between cloud, office desk and construction site. Increasing quantity and variety of data makes it hard to meet custom project’s demands with traditional BIM tools. A next generation solution and flexible process are required to solve this.

 

We will present our recent research project into the ability to manipulate BIM information stored as raw data in database. The problem with traditional data validation and model checking in a BIM process is

 

1) It is carried out on local machines

2) It is not collaborative

3) It is file based and cannot give insight across numerous projects

 

Our research has shown how using open source software and open data schema (IFC), hosted in a cloud environment, we can provide a collaborative platform for team members to validate and verify data residing not only in the BIM model but also from other external sources.

 

During a live demo opensource graphical scripting editor NodeRED will be used to connect with 3D Repo APIs, manupulate IFC data from opensource Mongo database and visualise results in 3D Repo’s cloud based Unity viewer. This pipeline can be utilised for:

 

Model checking

Metadata differencing

Data sharing
