Many BIMserver applications during AECHack

At any AEC Hackathon BIMserver (and other open source BIM tools) are used to  improve the built environment. The AEC Hack event in the Netherlands took place in Eindhoven last weekend. Since this is the birth place of  BIMserver, many participants seemed very enthusiastic to use it.

The 45 participants from over ten different countries built their solutions to the challenges using multiple different open source BIM tools.  All the results from évery team have also been publicly published again. A great example on how you can make the world a better place when you put your mind to it.

Have a look at the results, pictures, and keep track of  the site for the 2016 event!


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.
