More information about this webinar:

In this webinar we present the benefits of using Open BIM Systems for plumbing, wastewater and solar thermal collection to improve your designs. After Vicky Leung’s welcome speech and Wilson Li’s  presentation of “Hong Kong official launch. How Open BIM Systems help optimise your design”, María Adrián starts her presentation by explaining how IFC Builder and CYPE Architecture work, two CYPE programs that generate the architectural model used as a starting point in different projects. Paulo Alves then shows the full potential of CYPEPLUMBING Water Systems, CYPEPLUMBING Solar Systems, CYPEPLUMBING Sanitary Systems, and Open BIM aliaxis. María Adrián goes on to explain the Open BIM workflow and demonstrates how to log in at, create a new project, invite other team members to collaborate, and link an IFC Builder file to the project. Lastly, Paulo Alves discusses the plumbing and wastewater applications, and links  the previously created project.


New features in CYPECAD version 2022

Among the main new features of CYPECAD version 2022.a is the automatic import of existing beams into BIM models, optimisation of frame design times, and new possibilities for defining concrete crown beams. In this seminar, these new features will be presented as well as others from version 2022.a.

New features of CYPE Connect Steel

In this seminar, we present the new features implemented in version 2022.a of CYPE Connect Steel. The most important ones are listed below:
Connections library (importing and exporting connections)
Connection summary report
Optimisation of analysis time
Node management in the 3D view of the structure
Viewing options
Exporting connections to the BIM model

Discover BIM Essentials by CYPE

In this seminar, we will learn about 7 essential tools for designers who want to work with BIM. Based on an architectural model created with CYPE Architecture, we are going to characterise a building’s structural systems, develop an analytical model for the thermal simulations, calculate the cost of the project through a BIM budget, study the compatibility between fields with a clash detection analysis and prepare all the drawings of the project.
