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.
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 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 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).
