Get Simplebim Templates
Use this template to import your IFC file without grids. NOTE: You need to install this template and import your IFC model using the installed template.
This set of templates were created for Simplebim 6 and shipped also with Simplebim 7, but no longer with Simplebim 8. They are still fully functional and you can use them as-is, modify them or use them as learning material for templates.
This template demonstrates the IFC model editing capabilties of simplebim, like setting, copying, trimming and swapping property values.
This template demonstrates the IFC model validation capabilities of simplebim, like how to define objects and properties as required and set lists of allowed property values.
This template demonstrates the IFC model enrichment capabilities of simplebim, like how to add new properties to the model and set the values of those properties.
Get Simplebim Add-ons
With the IDA-ICE add-on for Simplebim 8.0 you can validate and prepare IFC files for use in IDA-ICE and merge the analysis result from IDA-ICE back to the IFC model for visualization and more intelligent HVAC design.
Prepare: Remove all irrelevant objects and properties, verify that all required objects and properties are present, move property data to where IDA-ICE expects to find it and flag objects to improve the building body and curtain wall detection in IDA-ICE.
Merge results: Import the analysis results from IDA-ICE to Simplebim for visualization in the context of the model. Export the merged model to IFC for use by HVAC design applications.
Version 8.0 (12.07.2019) / Requires Simplebim 8.0 / Documentation
We often get requests from customers for functionality that solves some specific problem. The Prototypes add-on is a place where we can quickly and easily implement and publish such functionality without cluttering Simplebim. Prototypes, like the name implies, do not go through the same testing process as functionality in the standard product. Often functionality matures in the Prototypes add-on and is then later included in some way in the standard product.
Version 27.8.2019 / Requires Simplebim 8.0 / Documentation
With the mvdXML add-on for Simplebim 8.0 you can create Simplebim templates from mvdXML files. This supports the vendor neutral OpenBIM workflow for validating IFC models against Exchange Requirements (ER) defined within the Model View Definition (MVD) framework. This add-on was developed in co-operation with Statsbygg. Please be sure to read the documentation before installing and using this add-on, especially the section about known limitations.
Version 2.8.2019 / Requires Simplebim 8.0 / Documentation
Space boundaries are special objects in IFC that connect a space to its bounding elements (walls, doors, windows, slabs). Most applications don’t need space boundaries, but for some energy and indoor condition analysis applications they are mandatory. This add-on allows you to generate space boundaries into your model with good consistent quality.
