Features

Simplebim is a revolutionary Open BIM IFC application. It has all the tools you need for standardizing and enriching your IFC models to fit for your purpose and to maximize your BIM value. Trim and clean models. Merge and split. Calculate normalized quantities and resolve locations. Add your own property sets. Classify. Enrich models with data from outer sources and much more…

Standardize

Standardize your IFC2X3 and IFC4 models, so that they are easy to understand and use. Clean-up and focus the data by removing unnecessary objects and properties. Add your own standardized properties to the model. Map properties and their values. Combine and derive property values. Automatically classify and group objects with you own classification systems. Move models to project coordinates. Manage element assembly structures. Normalize containment structure. Change object colors. In other words: Make BIM normal.

Enrich

Enrich your IFC models with data, which doesn’t come from the designers. Support all of your BIM based processes with the exact data they need. Add properties. Merge data from outer source to the model. Calculate consistent and normalize quantities with our industry leading Basic Quantities tool. Resolve locations with Simplebim’s unique Location Editor. Merge models and their data and structures. Or split the building elements.

Automate

Automate your standardization and enrichment process with Simplebim’s rule based editing, enriching and batch processing features. Make your IFC data exchange processes as interactive as possible. Whether you have one or multiple models. Whether the models are updated on daily or weekly basis. It doesn’t matter. Rules are easy to create and apply – no programming is required. The same rules and automation can be used in multiple projects.

Validate and Communicate

Validate your IFC models with Simplebim’s powerful real-time data validation. Make sure that the models you get or models you produce contain only reliable information. Use build-in BIMCollab BCF Manager to communicate issues and notes with other parties in the most effective and centralized way.

Visualize and Use

Use Simplebim’s powerful and unique multi-viewport 3D window to navigate the model. Organize, use and visualize data with the intuitive Table Palette. Simplebim’s fast to learn and customizable user interfaces gets even beginners started with BIM in no time.

Export Data to Excel

Export data to Excel . Create rule based and smart views in the Table palette to extract data exactly as you like. From any model. In any project. Any time you need.
