Open BIM Model Checker is an application developed to analyse and inspect BIM models. The aim of this programme is to help users detect issues in the models, locate clashes between the different disciplines and consult the project’s documentation quickly and easily.
Open BIM Carpentry is a program that has been created to help users to design and create the documentation of the carpentry of a building. In its initial versions, Open BIM Carpentry allows users to specify the design of exterior glazed windows and doors and obtain the corresponding drawings and documents with the specifications that are required for the development of the project.
Open BIM Site is a free application for defining the initial conditions of a project site. Using this tool, users can establish the geographical location of the models, manage different types of maps, enter topographic surfaces and add site-specific elements such as plots and buildings.
Open BIM Layout is a free computer tool, whose main objective is to generate views and dimensions and provide the layout of technical drawings using BIM models (floors plans, elevations, sections and axonometric perspectives).
Open BIM Water Equipment is a free tool that has been developed to introduce appliances and fittings, which require a water supply connection (bathroom and kitchen sinks, showers, bathtubs, toilets, bidets, dishwashers, washing machines… ), in the BIM model of the project.
Architectural modelling is the first step in most BIM projects. During this phase, the building concept begins to take shape, and the spaces, uses, ergonomics, configuration and aesthetics of the building are established. Within CYPE software, this task is carried out in CYPE Architecture, which allows professionals to develop an architectural model from the sketch phase through to the development of a detailed BIM model.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, most national governments in the affected countries have imposed mobility restrictions to prevent the spread of the disease. Open BIM COVID-19, a free tool developed by CYPE, allows users to establish and check the necessary conditions for reopening companies and returning to workplaces.
