You can build on us
We believe software tools should be build on a robust base. We believe that, in a fragmented industry like the AEC, there is no one tool or platform that can do everything. We believe in focussed applications that do one or two things very good. That is why we created a robust platform that provides developers a solid foundation for their tools. This is how we lower the threshold for developers to build stable applications fast and reliable.
Learn how to use BIMserver to build an application, or how to connect your software to a BIMserver-based tool.
The Building Information Model server (BIMserver.org) platform enables you to create your own BIMserver. The software core is based on the open standard IFC and therefore knows how to handle IFC data.
IFC data are interpreted by a smart core and stored as objects in an underlying database. Everything is based on plugins in an open framework.
BIMserver.org is part of the open source BIM collective. We collaborate with other open source BIM software developers to improve the quality of the build environment. We believe the collaboration with others allows us to focus and improve our mission and the mission from others. Have a look at opensourcebim.org to meet our friends, or watch this video for an introduction of the projects.
