Revit App: Autodesk COBie Extension

 

Lowdown

This free tool will allow you to set up your Revit models to capture COBie
data and then export that data to a COBie compliant spreadsheet.

Features

  • Simple setup and use allows anyone, even those not Revit savvy, to produce COBie-compliant deliverables.
  • A dynamic Zone Management tool lets you visually assign your Rooms/Spaces to Zones.
  • Custom Parameter Mapping lets you use your own parameters to speed up the data collection process.

Description

The COBie Extension for Revit is organized into three steps; Setup, Modify, and Export. A typical COBie project workflow will follow this basic sequence, with most of the day-to-day management tasks utilizing the tools found within the Modify step. Beyond the documentation for each of these steps, the Revit Parameter mapping tables defines which Revit Instance and Type parameters map to each COBie Worksheet field.

Step 1: Setup

Manage project contacts, and learn how to configure the COBie Extensions default parameters for mapping model data to the COBie data structure.

Step 2: Modify

Manage the relationship between Revit Rooms and Spaces and COBie Zones, specify which families, types, and elements are exported, and perform batch operations on the current model.

Step 3: Export

Configure the COBie export by specifying the worksheets to include, creation method, template, and export location.

Revit App: Autodesk Model Checker

 

Lowdown

This free tool will automatically check your Revit models based on a
set of BIM requirements and generate a compliance report.

Features

  • Multiple configurations are included: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, COBie, overall reporting, and many more coming soon.
  • Instant feedback is given via reports as project teams run checks at any point to gauge their compliance.
  • Direct model integration allows reports to be saved in, and travel with, the models for all to review.
  • Configure your own model checks using the Model Checker Configurator tool.

Description

The Model Checker automatically checks Revit models and assists with verifying compliance to BIM Requirements. The add-in is designed to quickly identify possible conflicts or areas of non-compliance in a model by running several standards checks which can be viewed or exported for analytical review.

While the Model Checker should not supersede the rules or recommendations put forth by any authority having jurisdiction, it does provide useful guidance for BIM compliance throughout a project’s development.

You can configure your own model checks using the Model Checker Configurator tool.
