Open BIM add-in for Revit. Introduction.

Open BIM add-in for Revit. Introduction.

CYPE programs include an add-in for Revit from AutoDesk©, which facilitates the inclusion of Revit into the Open BIM workflow.

Since CYPE initiated the integration of its programs into a collaborative, multidisciplinary and multi-user Open BIM workflow, applications of other software manufacturers have been able to participate in this project development system by interchanging information using IFC files.

With the Open BIM add-in for Revit, communication between Revit and CYPE's group of specialised tools is improved. This way, the BIM workflow of projects modelled in Revit and analysed with CYPE programs, is optimised.

The following sub-sections describe the improvements this CYPE add-in provides for Revit:

Features of the Open BIM add-in for Revit

Open BIM workflow

With the "Open BIM add-in for Revit", users can directly begin an Open BIM project in Revit. This way the architectural model can communicate with CYPE's simulation programs, and so achieving a two-way collaboration in real time amongst the various disciplines of the project and Revit using IFC interchange files. This collaboration can be carried out locally (the IFC files making up the project are in a local or internal network directory) or in the cloud (using the BIMserver.center® platform).

Project modification updates

CYPE's Open BIM add-in for Revit informs Revit users of the modifications that have been generated in the projects of the different disciplines, allowing them to decide whether to update the information of the project or not. Without this add-in, i.e. with only the direct link to Revit using files in IFC format, users must update the project in Revit.

Native mapping of IFC entities of the project

The Open BIM Add-in for Revit allows the conversion of BIMserver IFC elements into Revit native elements by using a mapping table that matches the synchronised information of the Open BIM project with user entities and parameters. The mapping can be configured by IFC class and Revit types, has filtering functions, can be saved and loaded in multiple projects, and allows multiple conversion of BIMserver IFC links.

Automatic configuration of the export to IFC from the add-in

The export process to an IFC file using the Open BIM add-in for Revit automatically optimises the generated IFC file so that CYPE programs can interpret it correctly, as long as the modelling of the project in Revit has also been introduced correctly.

Collaboration in the cloud (BIMserver.center®)

Using CYPE's Open BIM add-in for Revit, the Autodesk application can directly use the BIMserver.center® service. "BIMserver.center®" is a service managed by CYPE to save, synchronise and share BIM project files. This service offers:

  • Safe storage in the cloud of BIM project files. All intervening agents can access it from any device and share them in a coordinated manner.
  • Acts as a collaboration platform to centralise and manage all files in real time.
  • Optimises the BIM workflow and communication amongst professionals.
  • Until now, only CYPE programs could use the BIM storage service for projects. Now Revit, using the new Open BIM add-in created by CYPE, can also use this service, regardless of whether or not there is a connection to other CYPE programs.

Open BIM add-in for Revit. Installation.

Installation of the Open BIM add-in for Revit

Users can install the Open BIM add-in for Revit from the CYPE program menu, by selecting the Install Open BIM add-in for Revit tool.

To be able to install the add-in, Revit (2015 version or higher) must be installed on the same computer where the installation of the add-in will run.

 

License requirements

The "Open BIM add-in for Revit" is a free access application. In order for it to operate users must have a Revit user license of version 2015 or higher, (with the IFC 2015 or IFC 2016 plugin installed – later versions of Revit already include this plugin).

If users also wish to include their Revit projects in the Open BIM workflow with CYPE programs, they must have a CYPE program user license (2017.f version or higher) that includes the programs they wish to collaborate with.
