About this app
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has become an integral part of the architecture, engineering, and construction industry, streamlining the design and construction process. However, ensuring the accuracy and compliance of BIM models can be a challenging task. That's where the BIM Model Checker plugin comes in. This powerful Autodesk® Revit® plugin offers an automated solution to run rule checks on your Revit models, providing instant results and error indicators. It is an indispensable tool for architects, engineers, and BIM professionals seeking to enhance productivity and achieve high-quality BIM models.
Effortless Rule Check Automation
The BIM Model Checker plugin empowers users to automate rule checks on their Revit models effortlessly. With the automation feature, a wide range of custom rules can be checked, including pipe slope checks, workset rules, mounted element checks, and clash detection rules. These rules ensure that your BIM models comply with industry standards, best practices, and project-specific requirements.
Comprehensive Rule Checks
This customized plugin allows you to perform comprehensive rule checks on your Revit models. Let's explore some of the popular rules available:
Pipe Slope Checks
Ensuring the correct slope for piping systems is critical in avoiding drainage issues and ensuring efficient performance. The BIM Model Checker enables users to check the slope for any selected piping systems. You can add, edit, or delete slope rules, and even specify a tolerance value that can be ignored. This flexibility ensures thorough and accurate pipe slope checks.
The BIM Model Checker plugin also provides workset rules to validate if each element is added to the correct workset. By selecting specific elements and the expected workset, users can easily identify any inconsistencies. This feature guarantees proper organization and collaboration within your BIM models.
Mounted Element Checks
Properly mounting elements on ceilings and walls is crucial for accurate representation and functionality. With the BIM Model Checker, you can verify if elements are correctly mounted or not. This rule check highlights any errors in mounted elements, allowing you to promptly correct them and ensure your BIM models are accurate.
Clash Detection Checks
Interference and clashes between different elements can lead to costly rework and construction delays. The BIM Model Checker simplifies clash detection by utilizing the Autodesk® Navisworks® template for various Revit elements from the cloud model. It generates clash results in NWF format and even exports the Revit file in NWC format. This powerful feature enhances collaboration and coordination among project stakeholders.
Efficiency is paramount when dealing with multiple BIM models. The BIM Model Checker plugin offers batch checks on any selected number of BIM models, whether they are local or from BIM 360. By executing all configured rules at once through the batch-run feature, you can save time and effort. The results are conveniently stored in a target folder, enabling easy access and analysis.
Easy Operability and Integration
The BIM Model Checker plugin provides a user-friendly interface and seamless integration with Autodesk® Revit®. It presents each rule check in a separate window, showcasing results in CSV format for easy operability. The compliance report generated by the plugin is comprehensive, allowing you to quickly identify and resolve any model issues.
Linking with Autodesk® BIM 360®
The BIM Model Checker goes beyond local Revit models by supporting rule checking for linked models from Autodesk® BIM 360®. This valuable feature allows users to fetch models from BIM 360 and perform rule checks on them. By enabling the batch run feature, you can effortlessly check all available BIM 360 files as well as local files, enabling efficient collaboration in complex BIM projects.
The BIM Model Checker plugin revolutionizes the way you check and validate Revit models. Its powerful automation capabilities, customizable rules, and comprehensive rule checks ensure the accuracy, compliance, and quality of your BIM models. By using this plugin, architects, engineers, and BIM professionals can maximize productivity, streamline workflows, and minimize errors. With its user-friendly interface and seamless integration with Autodesk® Revit®, the BIM Model Checker plugin is an indispensable tool for anyone involved in BIM projects. Embrace the power of automated rule checks and elevate your BIM modeling experience with this game-changing plugin.
