Nine O’Clock Banana

12.04.2018

Welcome to Nine O’Clock Banana. The blog about the final and conclusive truth about BIM!

Now you may wonder about the connection between bananas and BIM, and why on earth nine o’clock? Well, when we founded Datacubist in 2009 with my colleague Sakari Lehtinen, he took the habit of eating a banana every morning at nine o’clock, and we had many of our best ideas on his daily banana break.

One obvious banana related feature we came up with early on is peeling, the functionality of dragging and dropping objects from a 3D window such that they disappear from that 3D window and appear somewhere else. Peeling is still one of the unique key features of simplebim®, but most ideas were naturally not even remotely banana-related.

Many of our ideas are implemented in the Simplebim® application or enabled by it, but this blog is not only about Simplebim®. We hope you find our ideas interesting and that we can even help you gain a deeper understanding of BIM, IFC data exchange and all the things around them. Ultimately to empower you with the knowledge, that working and reliable data exchange can create for you.
