Building Information Modeling (BIM)

BIM Interoperability & Building Information Modeling 3D Software Toolkits

A Comprehensive Solution to Bring Seamless Data Interoperability to Your BIM Process

Spatial's integrated BIM interoperability solution reduces sources of complexity and increases the accuracy of your translations through an integrated programming interface fully compatible with major industry formats.

Our BIM Interoperability Solution Delivers:

• Support for major industry formats such as Revit®, IFC and DGN
• Accurate import of geometry and metadata of project designs
• Digital Twin/Virtual Construction capability
• Easier identification of design flaws
• Simple and complete data manipulation
• Guaranteed updates and regular maintenance

3D Software Data Interoperability for Your Building Information Management Software

Be it helping your Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry end-users with new-build construction projects or ongoing maintenance, you can provide them with BIM applications that enable interoperability and multi-platform (desktop, web and mobile) usage.

Leverage The Benefits Of Building Information Modeling With The Following:

Precise Translation

We’ve taken care to ensure that our building information modeling 3D software solution is fast and easy to use while giving you the power and accuracy that you need. 

Our 3D Modeler (CGM Core Modeler and 3D ACIS Modeler) and 3D InterOp SDKs provide all of the data libraries you need to cover every end-user 3D modeling requirement. We’ll handle the maintenance and upgrades so that you maintain a faster development cadence as well as cut you development costs and risks. 

Painless Data Manipulation

The BIM data programming software toolkit we’ve developed allows you to easily and quickly make changes to your planned structures and other projects. 

We’ve created a simple and intuitive portfolio of APIs in our BIM interoperability tools that your engineers can use to access the information they need quickly (e.g., model checker configurator and classification manager model checker). 

You’ll equip your end-users with the ability to review and edit a diverse range of 3D modeling data by leveraging Spatial’s 3D Data Translation, 3D Modeler, and 3D Visualization SDKs all out-of-the-box. We’ll maintain and update these core technologies so that you can deliver fast and timely feature updates to your end-users. 

Universal Format Support

We’ve taken special care when designing our building information modeling 3D software to ensure that it works with major industry formats used. This includes, but is not limited to:

By leveraging Spatial’s SDKs, you can create BIM applications for a wide range of users and workflows, giving you access to a much larger market than compared to competing solutions.

In addition, you’ll give your end-users the ability to work with any team or workflow (no matter what BIM suites they’re using), but without the costs of licensing from the leading BIM vendors.

Design Support

Equip your applications to import a range of 3D modeling formats as well as create and edit geometry in those formats (including Autodesk Revit® and CAD).

Analysis Support

Provide a robust BIM experience to your end-users with an Automatic Feature Recognition system that streamlines your mesh generation and structural, thermal and fluid simulations.

You can also enable Topology Editing and Optimal Mesh Generation.

Construction Support

Your application end-users will have complete Read and Write capabilities for Revit, thus enabling specified end-users to track changes, status developments and changes during the construction phase. In addition, the ability to publish 2D and 3D views at an appropriate Level of Detail allow for mobile distribution of only the requisite data and detail.

Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Support

Equip your end-users to document changes in BIM formats as well as STEP and PDF. You can also enable them to view BIM information on the web and through mobile applications.

Spatial also enables for Augmented Reality through an integrated Visualization Toolkit.

Facilities Management

You can also develop BIM applications for facilities management. This can include applications aimed at identifying and removing sources of waste in process, increase efficencies, cut risks to safety, and other risk-factors for maintaining and renovating facilities.

Support the Full BIM Process Lifecycle

3D models are one of the primary data sources in BIM processes. You must ensure that your software is able to support different 3D modeling file formats and workflows, which is common given the collaborative, multi-stakeholder nature of BIM.

Spatial’s 3D InterOperability provides a simple interface to access 3D data from different file types for use in geometric applications. Be it from architectural applications such as Revit® or Bentley MicroStation®, standard formats like IFC or detailed design models from traditional CAD systems, 3D BIM InterOp will provide high quality geometry through a single programming interface.

The use of geometry in software applications varies from discipline to discipline and Spatial’s geometry kernels offer a wide range of operations to satisfy every requirement.  

From operations like clash detection, generating 3D visualization and levels of detail, or generating inputs to analysis packages, our geometry kernels can do them all.

We combine our industry-leading expertise with powerful solutions that empower your business to manage construction projects of all shapes and sizes.

Our BIM solutions have been carefully designed to meet your needs. Contact us to start with a BIM component that’s been purpose-built to power your BIM application.
