Building Information Modeling (BIM) has become increasingly important in the construction industry. With the right tooling and processes, it allows architects, engineers, and contractors to create federated BIM models of a building project, which can be used to visualize, analyze, and simulate the performance of the building before it is even built. However, with the increase in BIM and the complexity of so-called capital projects, it’s becoming more and more important to ensure that the BIM data is available, accurate and compliant with industry standards. This is where Dropbox and Verifi3D come in.
Dropbox, the global content collaboration platform, is a cloud-based data storage solution that allows users to store, share and collaborate on files from anywhere.
Verifi3D, developed by Xinaps, is a cutting-edge technology that specializes in providing a comprehensive 3D verification solution. The team really understands the challenges that come with checking BIM model data. Verifi3D is designed to automate the verification process, helping general contractors and designers ensure that all BIM information is accurate and compliant with industry standards.
Sometimes it can be difficult for an SME to afford the costs of a full-fledged common data environment (CDE) that supports BIM models and workflows. This is where the integration with Dropbox comes in. By integrating Verifi3D with Dropbox, you will turn your Dropbox account into a fully cloud-based, BIM-capable CDE based on ISO19650 standards.
This integration gives you the opportunity to access the advantages of a cloud-based CDE for a fraction of the cost of traditional CDE solutions. With Verifi3D and Dropbox, you can start to automate the process of BIM data model checking, ensuring that the BIM data is accurate and compliant with project and industry standards.
Additionally, the integration allows you to collaborate and share files with their team members and stakeholders, just like they would with a traditional CDE.
One additional benefit of the Verifi3D and Dropbox integration that should not be overlooked is that Dropbox has a wide range of security features, including two-factor authentication and encryption, to ensure that your data is always safe and secure. As Dropbox is compliant with industry standards and regulations, this should give you the peace of mind that all your project data is shared, safe and secure.
This a game-changer for SMEs in the construction industry as the integration ensures that their BIM data is available, accurate and compliant with industry standards.
