BIMcatalogs.net Delivers Various Bradley BIM File Formats

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jul 12, 2016 10:17:02 AM

Bradley BIM is testing the BIM file format output and downloads of a new online BIM library BIMcatalogs.net.

Our initial focus is to provide our global clients with access to Bradley BIM product files in a variety of file formats used by the AECO community.

  1. Revit, AutoCAD, 3D Studio Max, Inventor
  2. ArchiCAD, All Plan
  3. Bentley AECOSim
  4. Trimble SketchUp and others
  5. IFC, DXF, SAT, PDF 

Visit Bradley BIMcatalogs Web Page

Secondarily, Bradley has been using BIM for our international products in the Middle East (UAE, Dubai, Saudia Arabia), UK/EU and Latin America. These regions use a variety of BIM file formats and work in metric rather than imperial units.

BIMcatalogs.net provides multi-BIM file support for a Bradley International Team that has served International, global projects with Bradley plumbing fixtures, washroom accessories and industrial fixtures for over 45 years. 

Bradley BIM is currently testing the delivery of BIM files for our Bradley Diplomat Series of Washroom Accessories

Here's an example of product download page; check out the 3D viewing, sectioning and visual tools at the bottom of the product page.

Bentley AECOsim Building Designer Reads Manufacturer Revit Families

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 6, 2016 7:23:00 AM

(March 2014) I'm pleased to publish Bentley's formal announcement of Autodesk Revit Family support for their new AECOsim Building Designer V8i (SELECTseries 5) BIM software.

Our thanks to Bentley for using the Bradley Revit Family Library (1,000 families) as part of their larger data set --to test Revit family import stability \ integrity in the new AECOsim Building Designer V8i (SELECTseries 5) software.

 

Bentley's Technical Manager (a former Revit Manager) for this project, focused on

  1. maintaining the Revit family geometry's dimensional integrity,

  2. retaining the Revit family parametric & visibility control behavior,

  3. retaining the embedded parameter data type values,

  4. retaining the Revit family types (embedded or family catalogs)

This new feature immediately provides Bentley users access to 10's of thousands of Building Product Manufacturers' (BPM) Revit families in their native RFA file format.

 Bentley will supports Revit family file formats for Revit 2009 through Revit 2014. When Autodesk Revit 2015 is released; Bentley will begin testing the Revit 2015 new features of the family file format (RFA).

It demonstrates Bentley's commitment to both interoperability between different BIM software tools --and the value of providing their users with pre-built BPM BIM content for their Bentley design projects.

Revit Family IFC Export Delivers Building Product Manufacturer Content

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Mar 12, 2016 7:57:00 AM

The use of BIM software, BIM Processes, BIM Execution Plans and Public & Private BIM Mandates has created a file format for the exchange of BIM Content.

Building Product Manufacturers (BPMs) provide their products in pre-built BIM file formats; to assist designers with creating their BIM project files. IFC, a software-independent file exchange format, emerges for sharing BIM content between different BIM software packages.

The Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) data model is intended to describe building and construction industry data. It is a platform neutral, open file format specification that is not controlled by a single vendor or group of vendors.

For BPMs an Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) file is a neutral exchange BIM file; that allows their BIM content to be exchanged between these different BIM software packages.
