3D Repo, a provider of cloud software solutions for collaborative Building Information Modelling (BIM), has signed up to the Open BIM Programme. Designed to provide a universal approach to the collaborative design, realisation and operation of buildings based on open standards and workflows, Open BIM is an initiative of leading software vendors using the buildingSMART Data Model based on open standards such as Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and BIM Collaboration Format (BCF). Through the use of its award winning open source software solutions, available to try free of charge at www.3drepo.org, and its support of the Open BIM programme, 3D Repo joins other members of the growing Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) community in promoting successful and streamlined collaboration on BIM projects anywhere in the world.
“Open BIM supports a transparent, open workflow, creating a common language and allowing end users to communicate with potential suppliers and procure projects with transparent commercial engagement, comparable service evaluation and assured data quality,” commented Dr Jozef Dobos, CEO of 3D Repo. “The aims and objectives of the Open BIM programme are so closely aligned with our own ethos that joining the community, and hopefully contributing to its growth and success, was obvious.”
