Chicago, Illinois (March 21, 2013) – Plumbing engineering and design professionals are increasingly using Building Information Modeling (BIM) in their work.

To ensure the National BIM Standard–United States™ (NBIMS–US™) accurately references their needs, the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) recently signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the National Institute of Building Sciences buildingSMART alliance™.

“ASPE is thrilled to be offered the opportunity to join the other organizations involved in the buildingSMART alliance in helping to improve the already impressive and valuable National BIM Standard–US™,” says Jim Kendzel, MPH, CAE, Executive Director/CEO of ASPE.

“Our members are directly engaged in the use of building information modeling, and we are committed to contributing to the standards process and ensuring that the national standard meets the needs of plumbing engineers and designers."

Free Bentley MicroStation i-model Plug-in for Autodesk Revit | Bradley Revit Family Library

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Nov 17, 2012 6:07:34 AM

The Design Build Convention in New Orleans provided a great opportunity to engage the Bentley MicroStation representatives on the technical details of their FREE i-model plug-in for Revit.

Consider this option for for transferring and integrating Bradley Revit Family Library components into your Bentley MicroStation projects.

The US Army Corps of Engineers has been a major legacy Bentley client. USACE now includes Revit in their 2012 BIM Road Map of products. I am checking with my USACE BIM Practice Team contacts, to verify if the i-model plug-in may be an acceptable tool for their USACE Bentley deliverable.

For non-USACE projects, contact your project member(s) that are using Bentley on your team regarding the feature/functionality of i-model plug-in. The family model(s) that are exported from Revit to a Bentley format, are individual blocks; similar to an ADSK file.

I am confirming, whether these Bentley models can be edited by Bentley. The advice I received earlier today; indicates they are not editable in Bentley. Your project partners should be aware of this functionality in case it becomes a limitation for them.

WHAT is the i-model plug-in for Revit?

The i-model plug-in for Revit lets users save their Revit models to an i-model file from within the Revit application

The i-model plug-in for Revit allows users to save their Revit models in a way that lets users open them in MicroStation, Bentley Navigator, AECOsim Building Designer, and many other Bentley building products, retaining the Revit properties information from the Revit model.

The plug-in is designed to help teams working in a mixed Bentley/Revit environment to be able to reference Revit models into a MicroStation-based design workflow for coordination purposes, interference detection, and similar tasks.

The i-model plug-in for Revit works with the 2010-2013 versions of the Revit products, including Architecture, MEP, and Structure, and includes support for the 64-bit versions.

HOW does the i-model plug-in for Revit Work?

  1. Select and Download the i-model plug-in (app) for your Revit software version.
  2. Close Revit and Install the i-model app on your system
  3. Start Revit and the Bentley i-model pull down menu appears in your Revit software.
  4. The i-model plug-in exports the family content that is displaying in a Revit PROJECT file. (*.RVT) Does NOT work from a Revit family file. (*.RFA)
  5. For example, if you have a Revit family, with 5 family types; ALL 5 family types MUST be placed and displaying in the project file prior to exporting.

Bentley i-model for Revit Features

  1. One-step process that does not require MicroStation or other Bentley applications
  2. Integrated with Bentley Navigator for redlining, clash detection, and other federated information workflows
  3. Works with multiple versions of Revit products
