Why we are involved in BIMSie (and other AEC Hackathon presentations)

As most of our fans know, we are heavily involved in the ‘remote services’ part of BIMSie. During the AEC Hackathon we ‘finally’ had the chance to explain and demo why we spend so much time and effort on this. It is a hackathon presentation, so it is a bit technical.

The other two Hackathon presenations about ‘BIMserver when you first login (as administrator)‘ and ‘introduction to open source BIM tools‘ are also available.

Update: slides now available on slideshare http://www.slideshare.net/berlotti/federated-bim-and-bimsie

AEC Hackathon build

The AEC Hackathon 1.1 starts today/tomorrow and they made a special category for open source BIM tools. For that reason we had a close look to our current codebase and decided to build a new release candidate. This is the latest of the latest (it is still warm), but obviously not very well tested…. Find it on our github page. Best of luck to all the hackers! And thank you AEC Hackathon for this great initiative!

Update: have a look at this wiki page for a short introduction of some popular open source BIM tools.
