With BCF import / export


Bimsync is 100% committed to open standards, and we have based on that implemented export and import for BCF (BIM collaboration format).

This means that the user can import and export issues from/to other software that supports this format (for instance Solibri, Navisworks and many others).

Click the button captioned “Exchange issues”. From here you can click the buttons under the heading “File based exchange” to import or export to BCF-files. When you export you can choose to export the whole issue-board, or only the filtered issues.

If you use Bimsync as a BCF-server you can connect directly to other software and send / receive issues from there to/from Bimsync -- without using files. This uses the standardized (from buildingSMART International) BCF API. Examples of software supporting this includes Navisworks, Revit, Archicad and Solibri. The menu included the url you have to paste into Solibri to connect Solibri to this project / issue board.

You can for instance import a file with collision control data for the same model created in another software application. This way you can continue your workflow inside Bimsync.
