    BIM data exchange doesn’t work, because of the model author tools
    In This Topic

    BIM data exchange doesn’t work, because of the model author tools are bad. The model author tools need to be fixed and then BIM exchange starts working on a larger scale. Then we don’t need Simplebim anymore. Totally wrong!

    First of all, the inconsistency of the data is not caused by the model author tools as such. The inconsistency comes from the diversity of the construction industry in general and especially the digital environment we are working in. In this environment model data is created by multiple different people, in multiple different places and roles, with a multitude of software tools. Trying to control the consistency of the data by each one of these players separately, in a distributed way, is madness. Improving a single IFC export doesn’t help. However, making the data consistent and fit for purpose in a centralized and automated way with Simplebim is the smartest way forward.
