  • BIMserver.org introduction (including IFC)

    1. 1. Léon van Berlo IFC, BIM, BIMserver.org, etc… BuildingSMART
    2. 2. Previous: “event driven” informationexchange Contracter Architect HVAC Product supplier etc… etc… enz… etc…
    3. 3. Disadvantage <ul><li>Data errors </li></ul><ul><li>Not always the latest information </li></ul><ul><li>Bad change management </li></ul><ul><li>etc… </li></ul>
    4. 4. Ideal: Opdrachtgever Architect Installaties Toeleveranciers etc… etc… Aannemer etc… Own information BIM (server) Own information Own information Own information Own information Own information Own information Own information
    5. 5. Working with a central BIM <ul><li>Always the latest information </li></ul><ul><li>Better change management </li></ul><ul><li>Higher building quality </li></ul><ul><li>Shorter engineering process </li></ul><ul><li>etc… </li></ul>
    6. 6. Open Source BIMserver: Open source software to change a regular (internet)computer into a BIMserver.
    7. 7. Using the BIMserver software Bimserver.org software a b c d … Users (each using their own software)
    8. 8. The usual problems: Bimserver.org software a b c d … users each using their own Different software
    9. 9. Sollution: Open standaards <ul><li>IFC : Industry Foundation Classes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(or: BuildingSMART) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Bimserver.org also uses: W3C, SOAP, REST, Building Information Exchange protocol (BIM ExPro), ifcXML, etc.. </li></ul>
    10. 11. IFC History <ul><li>Industry Foundation Classes </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Open’ standard </li></ul><ul><li>Origin from the ‘CAD-world’ </li></ul><ul><li>Autodesk as driver </li></ul><ul><li>From the first days of STEP (1985) </li></ul><ul><li>Should be a standard for ‘downstream applicaties’ </li></ul><ul><li>Used as exchange format </li></ul><ul><li>Latest version: 2x3 TC1 </li></ul>
    11. 12. What is IFC? <ul><li>3D Geometry (object based) </li></ul><ul><li>BUT ALSO </li></ul><ul><li>Semantics </li></ul><ul><li>Relations between objects </li></ul><ul><li>Properties </li></ul>
    12. 14. What does it look like? www.ifcbrowser.com
    13. 15. What does it look like? www.ifcbrowser.com
    14. 16. Open standards <ul><li>All sofware uses the same open standard </li></ul>Bimserver.org software b c d … a IFC IFC IFC IFC IFC
    15. 17. How does BIMserver look?
    16. 18. http://www.bimserver.org/documentation/screenshots/
    17. 19. What kind of features does the BIMserver have?
    18. 20. The most valued ones… <ul><li>Merging IFC (sub)models </li></ul><ul><li>Early warning system (concurrent engineering) </li></ul><ul><li>User management and authorisation </li></ul><ul><li>Simple queries/filters </li></ul><ul><li>Rules checker </li></ul><ul><li>Version management – revision management </li></ul><ul><li>Change finder </li></ul><ul><li>Online viewer (O3D) </li></ul><ul><li>Clash detection (in next release) </li></ul><ul><li>Change alert / notification </li></ul><ul><li>More on www.bimserver.org /features/ </li></ul>
    19. 21. But also: <ul><li>Objects stored in database (no file storage) </li></ul><ul><li>100% open source (GNU GPL) </li></ul><ul><li>Export formats (CityGML, Google Earth, KML, ifcXML, enz..) </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Unlimited’ users, projects en objects. </li></ul><ul><li>Different interfaces (user, rest, soap, etc..) </li></ul><ul><li>Configurable queries/filters </li></ul><ul><li>Branching </li></ul><ul><li>GeoBIM export (geobim.org) </li></ul><ul><li>Model summary </li></ul><ul><li>Data checking (MVD?  in development) </li></ul><ul><li>Rich internal object model / application logic (ecore) </li></ul><ul><li>More on: www.bimserver.org /features/ </li></ul>
    20. 22. Tools / plugins <ul><li>Revit plugin (dead) </li></ul><ul><li>Clash detection (working on integration) </li></ul><ul><li>Client viewer </li></ul><ul><li>Linking alfresco/sharepoint (under the hood) </li></ul><ul><li>And much more… </li></ul><ul><li>Have a look at http:// www.bimserver.org /features/ </li></ul>
    21. 23. In short: a lot of features! Even more then a really expensive commercial solution… … but this one is free.
    22. 24. Work in progress <ul><li>Complex merging (difference finder) of IFC models </li></ul><ul><li>Complex querying </li></ul><ul><li>Complex concurrent engineering </li></ul><ul><li>Complex versioning </li></ul><ul><li>Complex user management </li></ul><ul><li>Intense documentation </li></ul><ul><li>Extending object with other data (Coins, PDF, PMO, Collada, etc..) </li></ul><ul><li>Other import/export formats (WebGL, 3D-PDF, OSG, etc…) </li></ul><ul><li>Parsers for import other data (Collada, CityGML etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Connecting to other initiatives (OSBim, IFC, Coins, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Etc… </li></ul>
    23. 25. How does it work?
    24. 28. Who’s involved?
    25. 29.

    27. 31. Main reasons for using BIMserver.org <ul><li>“ Tool to support dynamic collaboration” </li></ul><ul><li>Developed for one specific purpose: BIM </li></ul><ul><li>Open and free to use </li></ul><ul><li>Querying models (“only give me the walls”) </li></ul><ul><li>Open standards, so software-independent </li></ul><ul><li>Versioning your model (archive) </li></ul><ul><li>User management on model </li></ul><ul><li>Costumer view of the current state </li></ul><ul><li>Users think of new reasons every day…. </li></ul><ul><li>And of course (for the nerds): free to develop your own tools on top of it! </li></ul>
