This is a document that will explain the optimal workflow when working with the BCF-server
between Solibri and Bimsync.
1. Start with connecting with your Bimsync project. ( see here )
2. When connected, start by running your clash detection in Solibri and create a
There are several ways of creating a presentation in Solibri, But I will explain the best
type for communicating with Bimsync.
A. Run the check with your ruleset.
B. Find an issue you want to add to your presentation.
C. Instead of going to communication and adding the slide to your presentation there,
right click on the issue in the checking results and press the button “Add slide”. By
doing it this way, all objects in that issue will automatically be included in the issue in
Bimsync and easier to locate. This combined with hide others, make others
translucent in Bimsync is a good way of never losing track of which objects are
included in the issues.
When creating a slide this way, you will still get the same type of issue layout as in
communication where you can add a title, add a description, add extra pictures and
comments. The same goes for assigning people to the issue.
D. When you are done with your checking, go to communication and create a
presentation from “checking results”. Then all the issues you created in the checking
results will appear in your new presentation. If you want to add these slides to an
existing presentation you can right click on that presentation and press “update
presentation from results”, this way all the slides created in results will be included in
3. Now after you have created the presentation you can start syncing with Bimsync.
When you press “Synchronize presentation” a pop-up menu appears. In this you can
check boxes to decide which way you want to synchronize. If you go to “Value
Conversion” you can set different values to match the values in your Bimsync project.
4. Value Conversion.
If you for example have assigned an issue to a person directly in Solibri and it doesn’t
assign the issue in Bimsync, the reason is that the value conversion is not set
These responsibilities set in the issue, can be set to match the users in the Bimsync
project. This is done in value conversion here:
The value conversion button appears in the pop-up menu when right clicking the
presentation and pressing “Synchronize presentation”.
When these issues are assigned in Solibri and synchronized with the Bimsync
project, the users assigned will receive notifications if the notifications are turned on.
This way you don’t have to assign the issues manually in Bimsync after syncing with
