Just a short and quick note about the ‘common BIM files‘. Some websites are mentioning that they are on BIMserver.org, but this is not the case. Read the original, full story about the common BIM files on http://www.buildingsmartalliance.org/index.php/projects/commonbimfiles
As you will notice, the BuildingSMART alliance has used the BIMserver.org software to create a special (unsupported) version of BIMserver.org to support COBie data exchange. This feature will probably be in the next official BIMserver release as well. More on this in our next blogpost (in a few days).
For those of you who visit this site for the first time and want to know more about the BIMserver.org initiative, feel free to see what our users think of the project: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4-BIYP4jDs
