Verifi3D deepens integration with Autodesk BIM 360 to streamline model coordination and collaboration for construction teams!

Xinaps is thrilled to announce that Verifi3D, the cloud-based model checking solution for the AEC industry is tightly synced with Autodesk® BIM 360®, now part of the Autodesk Construction CloudTM. With Verifi3D’s latest release, customers can now integrate with BIM 360 Issues, taking issue management to a whole new level for mutual customers.

 

The construction industry is going through a digital transformation journey, leading to rising demand for better model coordination between teams and better-integrated workflows. A significant part of the classification and checking of building models is still performed manually, costing significant time and effort and leading to errors. Although every project is different, common challenges include model coordination and the lack of interdisciplinary coordination between designers, engineers, and contractors.

 

Verifi3D bridges gaps between design and the construction stages. It is a dedicated model checker that lets the teams work more collaboratively and gets more done in the cloud in real-time. As an agnostic solution, Verifi3D is integrated with Common Data Environments (CDEs), such as Autodesk Construction Cloud and BIM 360. It also now integrates with BIM 360 for issue management and tracking.

 

What does the integration with BIM 360 mean for you? 

 

Teams can easily create and assign issues and then track them to resolution, allowing them to instantly view all constructability issues in real-time in the cloud.

 

Regardless of place, time, or solution you’re working with, you get the most up-to-date, most accurate models and issues in BIM 360 and Verifi3D. The BIM 360 integration provides Verifi3D users with a centralized issue hub for clashes discovered during model coordination, enabling them to visualize, investigate and manage issues without needing to switch between software applications. Users can generate issues from both BIM 360 and Verifi3D, making updates easy to share and providing relevant stakeholders access to more up-to-date and accurate data.

 

Effective model coordination and collaboration is essential on modern construction projects,” says James Cook, head of integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions. “Our new integration with Verfi3D further streamlines model coordination workflows for project teams so they can improve model quality and reduce potential downstream risks and rework.

 

Frank Schuyer, CEO of Xinaps quotes, “This integration helps our clients identify and resolve issues in a faster, more traceable way. It takes the user workflow for design evaluations to the next level. Gone are the days when you had to export reports and send emails back and forth just to get reviews done, which invariably resulted in data and time loss.

 

Connect Verifi3D’s model checking capabilities with BIM 360’s issue tracking platform for a more efficient coordination workflow.
