Building Information Model Service Interface Exchange

 The bimserver.org team and our core partners TNO and Eindhoven University of Technology are closely involved in the new BIMSie standardization initiative from BuildingSMART. Together with software vendors and research partners from all over the world we are working on a “Building Information Model Service Interface Exchange”-standard. A first version is in review by the core team at this moment. Bimserver.org is now creating a prototype showing some new opportunities that will be possible thanks to this standardization initiative. The demo will be shown at the US Building Innovation Conference in January 2013. We hope to see you there.

 

BIMserver pilot info

Returning readers of this blog have noticed the start of a BIMserver Pilot 2010 in the Netherlands. This bimserver pilot is not limited to just the open source BIMserver, but it will probably have a strong focus.

The kickoff meeting of the pilot has taking place at TNO. During this meeting quite a large number of participants elaborated on what they expect and want to contribute in the pilot. TNO is now working on a projectplan to set off with this pilot.

For those of you who want to keep up with things going on in the pilot, or even want to participate: join the special mailinglist at http://bimserver.org/mailman/listinfo/pilot2010_BIMserver.org
This is the only form of communication about this pilot. The projectplan will be send to participants using this mailinglist. Most of the conversations will be in Dutch, but most Dutch people speak pretty good English, so feel free to join in.

BIMserver.org in core of Dutch BIMserver pilot

The Netherlands organisation for applied scientific research TNO and the Eindhoven University of Technology just released a call for participation (Dutch PDF) on a BIMserver pilot project.

The open source BIMserver project will become a core element of the pilot. The pilotproject has a strong focus on the Dutch AEC industry, but is also open for international participants. You will find more info (in Dutch) in the pdf of the original call.
