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.
