New updates are available for BIMscript, the exclusive content creation solution by BIMobject

New updates are available for BIMscript, a solution for generating digital building products. The updates provide a superior grade of flexibility and features that unveil the solution for improved product configuration for more product categories, along with a larger scope of products having complicated parametrics, and the complete sector of windows and doors.

With BIMscript the users will be able to make their own digital building products, also mentioned as BIM objects.

Users can create parametric, native BIM objects in a series of recognized formats for industry-leading BIM applications like Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD, 3DS, Graphisoft ARCHICAD, and Trimble SketchUp, as well as AR and VR formats. These BIM objects are then gathered on the platform BIMobject Cloud, which act as a Single Source of Truth for its over 650,000 professional registered users and in excess of 1,000 represented brands.

The updates significantly enhance the number of product categories that can be formed. These now comprise of windows, doors, and customizable products. The users get the ability to set the parameters according to their choice rather than selecting among a limited number of preset options.

BIMscript now becomes an established scripting language that contains numerous developed BIM objects. The new updates practically eliminate the few remaining restrictions to what can be scripted. Define any building component you like and receive full support for all market standards throughout the BIM process.

These custom parameters are further used in various intelligent processes to workout, adjust, and produce BIM objects on the basis of the information provided early. The processes improve the user’s workflow both via significant savings in time spent, and through the extra scopes.

The new features will be useful for doors and windows manufacturers as they can access the tools to convert their products into parametric BIM objects. The updated version of BIMscript is free for accredited BIMscript developers.

BIMscript automatically generates several parametric BIM and static formats from a single source of development. This accelerates the formation of various formats by 400% compared to traditional methods. Besides, the solution eliminates the requirement for buying multiple CAD/3D/BIM software for development, as well as the requirement for expert knowledge in several systems, because the making of native formats is accomplished by the BIMobject Cloud. With quick hosting, publishing, maintenance, and version handling, the development processes become protected and manageable.

he BIMobject Cloud can produce BIMscript as a batch process. For static file formats formed with BIMscript, such as IFC, DWG, 3DS, and OBJ, BIMobject also creates a 3D-configurator. The users can configure the object in the BIMobject Cloud and then download the consequential version of the product.

How to use revit for finding out the pipe sloping in isometric drawing

This revit video tutorial is presented to teach you how to view isometric drawing of piping and determine the measurement map of pipe as well as identify the material symbol of pipe isometric drawing.

You will also learn how to determine the sloping of pipe in isometric drawing, types of valves in piping, types of vales in piping joints, types of pipe fittings materials.

Slope Editor in Revit can be used to assign a slope to whole system or to particular parts of a system. In case of using large slope values, it becomes easier to draw the piping at the preferred angle in a section view or an elevation view.

Watch the following video tutorial to learn the detail process.

Bring your Revit model into Lumion with Revit exporters add-on

The Revit users can apply Revit exporters add-on for Revit to save any model in such a format so that it can be read directly in Lumion. Once it is installed, it can be accessed in Revit’s default (3D) view through Add-ins tab -> Export To Lumion

This Revit add-in doesn’t support Autodesk Revit LT versions.

It becomes difficult to seamlessly transmit the materials of your Revit model into Lumion through a normal FBX export.

This Revit add-in is considered as a perfect tool inside your Revit program to bring your Revit model into Lumion. The plugin can easily export any 3d view according to your choice as a collada file that can be imported into Lumion.

Datakit expands its BIM offer with a Revit format reader

Datakit, a leading company in CAD data exchange, unveil its brand new interface: a library to read Revit files (*.rvt), the native format of the well-known Autodesk’s BIM software.

This new interface expands Datakit’s BIM offering, begun in January 2017 with an IFC reader.

“Following our arrival into the BIM world one year ago, and following the positive feedback from our customers regarding our IFC reader, we have decided to expand our offer in order to also satisfy their native BIM data import needs.”, Explains Olivier Rigollet, CEO of Datakit. « As Revit is the most popular BIM software presently, it was natural to complete our range with this format. After one year of work, we are now able to provide a first version to our customers. »

As the other Datakit’s interfaces, this reader is independent of any external API, so it does not require a Revit license to work.

This new interface has been integrated into CrossManager, the standalone software of Datakit. CrossManager’s users are thus able to convert .rvt files to IGES, STEP, PRC and 3DPDF. New combinations will be available in the future.

Software vendors can also take advantage of this new interface in order to provide their users with interoperability with Revit format.

This is possible thanks to CrossCad/Ware: a SDK that can be integrated in a third-party software. By integrating CrossCad/Ware in their own application, software vendors benefit from Datakit’s technology, enabling them to access to Revit format data. They can thus read geometrical data along with colors and instancescontained in Revit 2017.x files. The API integration is easy and is seamless for end users.
