By integrating with Revit, we are further demonstrating our commitment towards BIM workflow integration and the value of scalable BIM collaboration with a project’s entire ecosystem
Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) September 08, 2014
Viewpoint AEC customers across the globe will now have access to a new productivity tool focused on easily publishing critical BIM information from Autodesk’s Revit into Viewpoint’s 4Projects and Viewpoint for Project Collaboration project management systems. The Viewpoint Revit Plugin will streamline the ability to export Revit design information into the 4Projects and Viewpoint For Project Collaboration environments. The plugin also addresses the challenge of creating IFCs from Revit models, as well as improving the quality of the exported IFC file, refining the way entire project teams collaborate on the right data, when they need it.
“Today Viewpoint expands its integration capabilities to help the AEC sector move toward improved BIM interoperability and collaboration. By integrating Viewpoint’s globally scalable project management and collaboration products with Revit, one of the world’s most widely used BIM authoring tools, we are further demonstrating our commitment towards BIM workflow integration and the value of scalable BIM collaboration with a project’s entire ecosystem,” stated Matt Harris, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development. “We understand that a large majority of our customers use Revit by Autodesk to create building information models. By integrating Revit outputs in OpenBIM formats with Viewpoint’s project collaboration and management systems, we ensure that distributed project teams can effectively share and collaborate on models and BIM project information.”
Additional benefits of the new plugin include the ability to automatically authenticate team credentials to Viewpoint from Revit, the ability to export models, sheets and schedules from Revit to Viewpoint in one quick step, and users can now easily define which file formats they want to export to Viewpoint including RVT, IFC, PDF, DWG, XLS and CSV.
