BricsCAD® BIM supports the BIMcollab issue management ecosystem

Eindhoven – Bricsys®
and BIMcollab are delighted to announce the integration of the BIMcollab BIM
Collaboration Format (BCF) Application Programming Interface (API) into
BricsCAD® BIM V20. A new BCF panel in the BricsCAD BIM product lets users
connect to the BIMcollab platform through this open API. The connected panel
allows users to see, open and manage BIM model issues directly inside of the
BricsCAD BIM product environment, while working directly with the BIM model.

The open BCF API has been recently released by BIMcollab. It is based on
BuildingSMART open standards, to better facilitate effective communications
across a variety of BIM tools and workflows. Bricsys is proud to deliver one of
the first application software products that uses this open BCF API to connect
with the BIMcollab platform.
Using the panel, the BricsCAD BIM user can select an issue and have the
relevant model elements automatically selected / highlighted. This workflow
enables efficient communications of design issues, without the added hassle of
sending emails and attachments back and forth via traditional channels. Also,
users can add comments to model issues stored on the BIMcollab server and can
change the status of issue notifications.

About BIMcollab

is an issue management system for BIM in the cloud and bridges the gap between
BIM applications by offering a broad set of add-ons for all popular BIM tools.
Part of its powerful ecosystem is BIMcollab ZOOM, a free model viewer to find
information flaws, communicate issues and verify solutions. Connecting
BIM-teams via the BIMcollab cloud means dramatically reducing time spend on
communication about issues and helping to improve model quality: less
construction errors, lower costs.
