Open BIM Systems: a BIM consulting service and implementation of products into Open BIM technology
The software developer CYPE has expanded its range of services to companies with the creation of Open BIM Systems, a new area aimed at companies and manufacturers in the architecture, engineering and construction sector interested in integrating their products in BIM projects and improving their prescription among the professionals of the sector. For this, CYPE performs BIM consultancy with the manufacturers to subsequently develop highly specialized tools for their products that assist users in the layout of selected 3D elements, based on calculation criteria, regulatory checks and interaction controls.
Inmesol, a leading manufacturer of electric generators and generators, was the first company to implement part of its products in the Open BIM workflow thanks to CYPE’s new Open BIM Systems service. Currently, CYPE is working with other companies from different disciplines to adapt their products to Open BIM technology.
To carry out the development and programming of these tools, CYPE has structured the work in two phases to achieve a completely customized product adapted to the needs of its customers. At first, CYPE experts carry out a BIM Consultancy of each company, analyzing in an individualized way the characteristics of the manufacturer and their particular needs.
After this initial consultancy, CYPE offers customized programming so that the products of the manufacturers are perfectly defined with standard and open formats, achieving their compatibility with any modeling software. The specialized software developed by CYPE assists the user in the arrangement of the elements within the BIM projects, enjoying the added value of working in a coordinated manner with the rest of the disciplines, thanks to the interactions offered by this technology.
These programs integrate the products of each manufacturer, allowing the generation of a three-dimensional model of each element, placing it in its exact spatial position and visualizing its digitized appearance in the environment of the building. In addition, and through the integration in the BIMserver.center platform, manufacturers enable their products to be seen and used by the more than 30,000 users currently registered in the platform and who maintain real execution projects in different design phases.
In addition, the BIMserver.center allows the monitoring of a manufacturers product range through the supply of information given to each manufacturer, contributing feedback for future production lines. All the information of the projects is accessible from any mobile device, the visualization of the products is possible within the three-dimensional model as well as the related data in the generated documents.
The BIMserver.center Team is a group of specialists dedicated to different areas of the architecture, engineering and construction sector. Together, they discuss, promote and disseminate the technology Open BIM around the world.
