Digital transformation is a way for the design, manufacturing, and AEC companies to offer significantly greater value to their customers, employees, and stakeholders by breaking down silos between departments and helping entire organizations work smarter together. It is about using a connected data platform to make better-informed decisions, drive more innovation, increase productivity, and create new business opportunities. As the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) & advanced Manufacturing world pursues digital transformation, a growing Computer Assisted Drawing (CAD), Building Information Modelling (BIM), Generative Design software ecosystem presents both challenges and opportunities. The increasing flow of digital data to connect tools, people, and processes through all phases of design. Nevertheless, with booming engineering demand research suggests inadequate software interoperability can impede project success and become a source of frustration for project teams and a real risk for production. Ensuring the availability, access and interoperability of project data, no matter the source, is crucial to reaping the full rewards of digital transformation.
More than ever, we need to work collaboratively across teams, tools, and industries to tackle the challenges of our present and future. With the increasing use of multiple projects-specific design and BIM tools, the need to exchange data between them has become inevitable within the AEC and Manufacturing industries. BIMDeX has been a pioneer in revolutionizing the data Interoperability between various such tools using our home bred BXF file format. Therefore, BIMDeX is committed to an interoperable software ecosystem defined by seamless data exchange between various tools such as SolidWorks, Creo, Inventor, Revit, SketchUp, Rhino, AutoCAD, AutoCAD Plant 3D, AutoCAD MEP and AutoCAD Civil 3D. BIMDeX provides and maintains an ecosystem of products to support better data exchange between designers, architects, engineers, contractors and all project stakeholders working in BIM.
BIMDeX enables universal interoperability across different Mechanical CAD and BIM applications and 3D ecosystem vendors. It provides efficient real-time data transfer and is based on the BXF file format. The BIMDeX Ecosystem is designed to act as a hub, enabling new capabilities to be exposed through its rich Data Repository, to be connected to other programs and applications.
As part of our long-standing commitment to cross-platform interoperability, we continue to ensure that our portfolio of products meets the rigorous requirements of design community across all the industries. This cross-platform data exchange is achieved through the proprietary technology that is BXF which is effectively a data repository of all the information, geometry and metadata collected from the various design and BIM tools. Real interoperability depends on the adoption and use of common data standards.
Better digital workflows improve industry collaboration, and adopters of the BXF technology do realize the benefits of digital transformation. We work with industry experts to improve the BXF functionality, leveraging their expertise and know-how to work collaboratively across vendors and practitioners towards the goal of a more open and digitally enabled ecosystem. Created around the BXF file format, BIMDeX transfers all the data between applications allowing for real-time interactions, for improved efficiency in collaboration and live sync between applications. The BXF platform is built on modularity and performance in mind. Create extensions or build complete applications using the BXF SDK Kit. As a result of its power and versatility, it is being widely adopted, not only in the manufacturing community, but also in architecture, design, engineering, construction, and other disciplines.
2D Viewer, is a used to view basic drawings which are exported from the models. Whereas 3D Viewer is used view 3D Models as well as Assets exported from the model.
Create and save markups from 2D Viewer, raise markups as issues and RFI’s are few of the key feature within the 2D Viewer.
Markups can be raised using 3D viewer and Issues created across all available platforms are listed for the user to visually identify which element needs attention.
