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.

The NL/SfB is derived from the international CI/SfB classification. With NL/SfB the BIM elements can be organised in Verifi3D based on standardised classification codes. Specialists can now leverage the NL/SfB template to simplify the model checking process by checking classification codes of a Revit or an IFC model and organize models by the NL/SfB system within Verifi3D.

When the NL/SfB template is imported into Verifi3D, specialists can run filters to show elements with specific classification codes, classify by running a single to isolate elements with a certain classification code, or run one or more filters sets to visualize multiple categories at once. By using classification filters, the BIM elements can be visually inspected to determine how the classification codes are used and if they are used as intended. Specialists can further validate by creating rules based on NL/SfB classification codes, checking if all elements have been assigned a classification code and if the classification code used is correct. Furthermore, it is possible to report and export results to Excel, CSV, or PDF file formats, and can create quantity take-offs based on NL/SfB classification codes!

The Verifi3D interface looks like the below:

With the NL/SfB template, professionals can leverage the solution and check the classification data of the model. It is possible to check project-specific requirements on elements filtered with NL/SfB codes. Users can download project templates that can be shared, amended, and taken into other projects and simplify the model-checking process. The interaction between user access roles & templates simplifies the data validation process.

In addition to NL/SfB, Verifi3D supports NAA.K.T., the Dutch material naming standard. Connect with Verifi3D’s model checking capabilities for a more efficient coordination workflow.

Met de hulp van duurzaamheidsspecialisten, leveranciers, ontwikkelaars, bouwers en architecten heeft BIM Loket een industrie brede materialenlijst voor BIM ontwikkeld, genaamd NAA.K.T. Met NAA.K.T. kunnen elementen worden georganiseerd op basis van materiaalnaam, eigenschap en toepassing. NAA.KT wordt ondersteund door het BIM Loket en de BIM basis ILS. Gebruikers kunnen nu gebruik maken van het NAA.K.T. sjabloon om het modelcontroleproces te vereenvoudigen door de materiaalnamen van een Revit of een IFC model te controleren en modellen te organiseren op basis van de NAA.K.T. classificatiecodes binnen Verifi3D.

NAA.K.T. biedt een oplossing voor verhoogde bruikbaarheid van BIM modellen voor alle belanghebbenden in een bouwproject; van ontwerp tot sloopfase. Met use cases zoals:

  • Visualisatie processen
  • Duurzaamheidsberekeningen
  • Hoeveelhedenafnames en schattingen
  • Kleur- en materiaalstaten en technische beschrijvingen
  • Werkvoorbereiding en inkoopprocessen
  • Beheer- en onderhoudsplannen
  • Lifecycle tracking van materialen tijdens ontwerpfase, bouw, beheer en hergebruik

Wanneer de NAA.K.T. template is geïmporteerd in Verifi3D, kunnen gebruikers filters uitvoeren om elementen met specifieke materialen te tonen, classificeren door één of meerdere filters uit te voeren om enkele of meerdere materialen tegelijk te visualiseren om te bepalen hoe materialen worden gebruikt en of ze correct worden gebruikt. Gebruikers kunnen verder valideren door regels te creëren op basis van NAA.K.T. classificatiecodes, controleren of aan alle elementen een materiaal is toegewezen en of het gebruikte materiaal correct is. Bovendien kunnen gebruikers resultaten rapporteren en exporteren naar Excel-, CSV- of PDF-bestandsformaten, en kunnen ze hoeveelheidsafnames maken op basis van de NAA.K.T.-classificatie!

De Verifi3D-interface ziet er als volgt uit:

Het aanhouden van een vaste volgorde in naamgeving zorgt voor betrouwbare data, en gebruikers kunnen de essentie van een materiaal duidelijk en ondubbelzinnig vastleggen. Dankzij de NAA.K.T. template kunnen Verifi3D gebruikers de oplossing gebruiken en de datakwaliteit van het model controleren door ervoor te zorgen dat het beste model het haalt tot de actualisatie van het project. Verder kunnen project specifieke classificaties zoals kamernummers en gebouwnamen ook worden uitgedrukt in een classificatie filter set en worden gebruikt als templates. Gebruikers kunnen projectsjablonen downloaden die kunnen worden gedeeld, gewijzigd en meegenomen in andere projecten en die het modelcontroleproces vereenvoudigen. De interactie tussen toegangsrollen van gebruikers en sjablonen vereenvoudigt het gegevensvalidatieproces.

NAA.K.T. is een goed uitgangspunt voor het standaardiseren van materiaalbenamingsconventies. Naast NAA.K.T. ondersteunt Verifi3D NL/SfB, de meest gebruikte classificatie voor bouwcomponenten in Nederland. Sluit aan op Verifi3D’s model controle mogelijkheden voor een efficiëntere coördinatie workflow.
