Meetup 2 – Generating Geometries Through BIMscript by Aida Ramić
Date(s) - 04/07/2019
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
BIMscript is a solution designed to streamline and accelerate the process of BIM content creation. This delivers both an open and freely accessible scripting language as well as a BIM object authoring solution. BIMscript includes not only parametric behaviors but also calculations, product logic, Level of Detail (with several levels of complexity of geometry and geometry combinations) and a huge range of properties and attributes. BIMscript is generated through the use of an authoring app for the mechanical 3D CAD system Rhino, which serves as a hosting platform. The solution works in combination with the modelling and optimisation features of Rhino. It allows for mechanical CAD geometry to be imported from most mechanical CAD systems, including industry-leading products such as Revit, CATIA, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, IGES, NX, JT, Inventor and Pro E. BIMscript requires the developer to have a commercial licence for Rhino 3D and an accreditation from BIMobject before being used. The solution is very user-friendly, with all syntax controls, testing, and creation of the generated BIMscript being carried out within the solution itself. The technology is freely available and enhanced continuously.
