From VisualARQ to PetroBIM

Last 26th November 2015, the application PetroBIM was presented at the MUAR (Museo Arqueológico de Asturias, Oviedo) and launched to public.

PetroBIM is a virtual platform for management, study, intervention, maintenance and sharing in the field of cultural heritage conservation.

This tool, developed by Alberto Armisén (BIM consultant) and Luis Valdeón and Félix Javier Mateos (both Phd In Geological Sciences and geological consultants at GEA company), lets the user work on a 3D virtual model of any building and select all its building elements in order to validate their status, characteristics or conservation interventions applied throughout time. PetroBIM also lets you add information to any part of a 3D model and share it with other managers.

We at VisualARQ have been collaborating with the PetroBIM team to test the application with architectural models created with VisualARQ. The result was very positive.

The process is very simple: you just need to save the project created with VisualARQ - the  ".fbx" file format (MotionBuilder) is the most recommended, although the model can be also saved in .3dm, .dwg or .ifc. Then, run PetroBIM and load the project to start managing it.
The model is saved and kept available in the cloud so other users can check it out and work on it.

We are also keeping track of a similar platform, also developed by the PetroBIM team, which is focused on landscape models: something that will be really interesting for the projects created with Lands Design.

Get into PetroBIM and try it out with your projects!

 


Free seminar of BIM architecture with VisualARQ and 3D printing

SEMINAR ASUNI BIM  20150917.

  • Where: Cooperativa Jordi Capell. COAC Barcelona (Col·legi d’Arquitectes de Barcelona. Plaça Nova, 5. 08002 Barcelona)
  • When: Thurdsday, September 17th, 2015. From 11am to noon and from 5pm to 6pm.
  • Duration: 1 hour
  • Price: Free

If you missed the seminar held on the last July 14th 2015, you have a new oportunity to see how to convert a BIM architectural project into a 3D printable model.

You will see the complete process, from the creation of the building design with Rhino and VisualARQ to the preparation of the 3D model to be printed with the Felix 3D printing machine.

The presentation will take place next Thursday September 17th at COAC Barcelona. It will last about 1 hour and it will be done in two separate sessions (11 am and 5pm).

The seminar is free but space is limited.

BIMscript™ Hackathon 2015

bimscript_lena_3

  • Dates: 1-4 September 2015
  • Place: Beton Studio, 1031 Budapest Emőd u. 10 Hungary

BIMobject® proudly presents the first BIMscript™ Hackathon event in Budapest, Hungary. Come and join us and learn to master BIMscript™ and the LENA solution for Rhino. The Hackathon will be lead by our core developers. You will have a unique occasion to learn from the masters.

This will open up vast opportunities for you to develop your own content for most of the BIM platforms with one single script.

There will be also an introduction of the BIM features VisualARQ adds to Rhino.

What is LENA?

BIMscript™ and LENA is a technology solution designed to streamline and speed up the process of BIM content creation. This delivers both an open and freely available scripting language as well as a BIM object authoring solution.

Powerful scripting language

BIMscript™ includes not only parametric behaviors but also calculations, product logic, level of detail (with several levels of complexity of geometry and geometry combinations) and includes a huge range of properties and attributes.

Import mechanical CAD geometry

LENA is an authoring app for the mechanical CAD system Rhino that will generate BIMscript™. It is a solution in which mechanical CAD geometry can be imported from most mechanical CAD systems, including industry leading products like CATIA, Solidworks, SolidEdge, IGES, NX, JT, Inventor and Pro E. Rhino is the host platform for BIMobject® LENA in which BIMscript™ is generated and works in combination with the modeling and optimization features of Rhino.

Generate native BIM objects

Operating in the cloud BIMscript™ generates intelligent, native BIM objects in a number of formats for the most popular BIM applications from Autodesk, Graphisoft, and Trimble -- and with the potential for more in the future. It also generates objects in commonly used formats such as IFC, 3DS, DWG and WebGL.

Connected to BIMobject® Cloud

BIMobject® LENA is directly connected to the BIMobject® Cloud providing a seamless workflow to publish objects. It includes a connection to the corresponding product information stored in property sets in the BIMobject Cloud.

Scalable and intelligent

The solution is scalable and can describe products as well as components in a very intelligent way, creating configurable objects with parametric variations and different levels of detail. BIMscript™ is a subset of the C programming language and enables smart objects to be created in BIMobject® LENA and then hosted and managed in the BIMobject® Cloud.

Easy to use

BIMobject® LENA requires the developer to have a commercial license of Rhino and an accreditation from BIMobject® before it is used. BIMobject® LENA is easy to use and within it all syntax controls, testing and creation of the generated BIMscript™ take place. The technology is freely available and will be enhanced continuously.
