Solibri Model Checker – a solution in alignment with the ever evolving potential of BIM
This article is a short abbreviation about the new happenings of the BIM community and about the continuous identification of new BIM use cases which should be considered while exploring the right solutions and checking how to apply QA/QC in any BIM process.
The Solibri Model Checker is a good solution for multiple BIM Use Cases and verifies the different needs and requirements. Let’s have a look on that.
BIM is growing a daily basis and there are millions of models in currency till now and more being activated every day on a global basis. Although there is are some arguments as the majority of these are actually Building Information Models or just ordinary models. There are some acutely knowledgeable people and improved companies since many years who identified that BIM could be used in other various purposes. To prove this, there had to be some harmony on that information needed to accompany the model components. The great examples are Energy Analysis, Acoustic Analysis, Facilities Management, Level of Development, QA/QC, National BIM Standards etc. and many more. As a result, there are some excellent actions for defining and delivering a common data structure for addressing the needs of the different project owners.
This Model checker is a unique solution for multiple BIM Use Cases by design but not by stretching the technology and become an excellent solution for very real use cases and flexible for adapting as increased requirements. As per the more data present models, there is a very requirement that sometimes may be ignored for both managing the data and verifying and validating it.
Data is not good without knowing its accuracy, completeness etc with an established requirement: The taken decisions that are depended or unchecked or unverified data can be resulted inaccuracies when the project progresses (???). This wrong decision adds time and cost and introduces more risk. Each BIM Use Case presents a range of various different requirements. But the most common and essential thing is to verify and validate data as per the requirement.
Solibri Model Checker provides the users an extremely powerful and capable solution with its ‘core capabilities’. There are many software applications (paid for and free) which can find or prevent a clash. The industry spends so much money on coordinating trades from a structural perspective so they should give the data coordination the same importance. This Model Checker is a guide for the design through the operations for the buildings’ life cycle with the ability of defining custom checks, run the checks and measures a wide range of behaviors. These checks can be used to make geometry, spatial information in the models which is critical for many of them.
This Model Checker is a bridge between:
• Design> Review for planning, compliance with codes, requirements or regulations
• Design> Construct where checks done prior for construction to ensure model quality and integrity
• Construct>Operate where the spaces and their associated requirements and behavior are defined
Solibri measures the quality of the geometrically modeled things and also allows measuring the quality of data which accompanies each model object. BIM cannot deliver data of poor quality.
