STREAMLINING AND ACCELERATING THE PROCESS OF BIM CONTENT CREATION

for Manufacturers

Are you a manufacturer who wants to be able to create BIM/3D objects for a number of different softwares from a single source?

for developers

Are you a developer who wants to use the most powerful BIM content creation tool out there?

for designers aND mechanical engineers

Are you a designer or mechanical engineer who'd like to produce not only construction drawings, but also BIM files with little extra effort?

Choose between three high-quality environments where your BIM objects are placed and the interaction is programmed according to your requirements.

What is BIMscript®?

We developed the scripting language BIMscript® to give users the right tools for the creation of parametric BIM objects. Combined with the plugin BIMobject®, BIMscript® offers a smooth transition from mechanical CAD to intelligent BIM objects in cloud-based environments.

The plugin BIMobject® works as an authoring app for the mechanical 3D CAD system Rhinoceros 5, which in turn generates BIMscript®. Using this CAD data as raw material, BIMscript® allows you to make your own digital building objects.

cad/bim developers

BIMscript® opens up a new world of opportunities for digital content development. Creating parametric BIM objects to digitalise your product catalogue was never easier. Give your developers the right tools to bring your building or interior design products into the digital era with a clever and efficient solution.

BIMscript® makes the digital versions of your products available for the most popular programmes in the industry.

Whether you're a small, independent developer or part of a large, in-house mechanical CAD department, BIMscript® gives you everything you need in order to develop your own BIM objects, compatible with all of the most common BIM platforms.

Using BIMscript®, you'll be able to build BIM objects for programmes such as ArchiCAD, Revit, and SketchUp, as well as formats like IFC, DWG, and 3DS.

Powerful scripting language

BIMscript® is as powerful a scripting language as they come. It includes not only parametric behaviours, but calculations and product logic as well. Of course, BIMscript® also provides Level of Detail with several levels of geometry complexity and combinations alongside a whole range of other properties and attributes.

Advantages of using BIMscript®

GO GET ANOTHER CUP OF COFFEE. HAVE A STRETCH.
BIMscript® Lets you create nine native file formats to use in a multitude of softwares from a single source – saving you both time and effort. 

BIMobject® is directly connected to the BIMobject® Cloud, which guarantees seamless transitions and an industrial workflow when you publish the BIM objects you have created.

The business model is the perfect fit for smaller developers. Needing only one licence for Rhinoceros (64-bit) and BIMobject®, you'll be able to develop multi-usable content with rich properties in a wide variety of languages.

BIMscript® lets you build BIM objects for the industry's most popular standards: ArchiCAD, Revit, and SketchUp as well as IFC, DWG, and 3DS. New formats are added continuously.

DOWNLOAD BIMSCRIPT 3.0

The plugin and the language now both just go by BIMscript® – faster to say, just like working with it. Let me give you a quick overview of the new features: 

New parameter user interface
You don't have to copy/paste the code to create parameters anymore. A user interface takes care of that!
Material groups
Creating an object with material and geometry choices can become quite complex. We decided to create material groups to make it easier. Instead of applying a single material to geometry, you can now apply several at once for simpler script creation!
Range parameters
Until now, your content creation was limited to discrete parameters – set value parameters. With the updated version, you’ll be able to define a number parameter that the user can specify within a set range also.
Extrusions
Use BIMscript to create extrusions of 2D profiles and design windows, doors, and other products that benefit from extrusions.
Transformations
You can attach range parameters to scaling*, rotation, and move actions for geometries and extrusions. 
*Scaling only for extrusions and cubes.
Add cube
The cube feature allows you to add a one-by-one-by-one cube to your product. That cube can then be scaled, moved, and rotated with transformations.
Formulae and calculations
This feature lets you more advanced calculations to control geometries in your model. For example, you can take a range parameter, divide it with a default extrusion height, and then use the result to scale the extrusion.

From now on, anyone with a BIMobject account can try the plugin. If you’d like to create files, you need an accreditation with us. Read the accreditation section to learn more about how to get accredited.

FAQ

HOW MUCH is IT?

BIMscript® is free of charge to users. Publishing the created files in the BIMobject® Cloud is payable for brand manufacturers according to our price list.

Native BIM objects – ready for publishing

BIMscript® generates native, intelligent BIM objects in a number of formats compatible with the most popular BIM applications from Autodesk, Graphisoft, and Trimble, with new applications added constantly. The objects can also be created in common formats like IFC, 3DS, DWG, STL, FBX, WebGL, and WebGL VR.

BIMscript® is connected to the BIMobject® Cloud, providing a seamless workflow when you publish the BIM objects you have created.

Using BIMscript® is free of charge.

How does it work?

Scripting language meets plugin in one powerful solution. 

BIMscript® consists of the scripting language BIMscript® and it's plugin. The solution is used in combination with the mechanical 3D CAD system Rhinoceros.

Rhinoceros is utilised as a hosting platform for the authoring app BIMobject®, which in turn is where BIMscript® is generated. BIMscript® makes full use of the modelling and optimisation features of Rhinoceros. The resulting solution allows for mechanical CAD geometry to be imported from most mechanical CAD systems, including industry-leading products such as CATIA, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, IGES, NX, JT, Inventor, and Pro E.

BIMscript® – a clever creating solution.

Turning mechanical CAD geometry into intelligent BIM objects.

A SCALABLE, INTELLIGENT SOLUTION

Offering scalability alongside intelligent product and component description, this clever solution is a lot more powerful than it looks.

BIMscript® creates configurable objects with parametric variations and different Levels of Detail. BIMscript® is a subset of the C programming language. It allows for the creation of smart objects in BIMobject® which are then hosted and managed in the BIMobject® Cloud. Objects created with BIMscript® can be equipped with properties and metadata from BIMobject® Properties (BOPC).

Easy to use

To use BIMscript®, you need a commercial licence for Rhinoceros and an accreditation from BIMobject®. BIMobject® is designed to be user-friendly and syntax controls, testing, and creation of the generated BIMscript® takes places within the system. The technology is available free of charge and continuously developed and enhanced.

BIMscript® Academy events

BIMobject® AR is based on the Microsoft Hololens, a holographic computer and head-mounted display, considered to be the best mixed reality solution on the market so far.

Reusing the intelligence and objects from the BIMobject platform, this solution allows your customer to place your digital products in their actual environment.

The system is very user friendly and navigation is intuitive - once an object is placed somewhere it can be moved around and properties like colour and size can be changed.

Imagine what it would be like if your prospects could…

  • ...put virtual versions of your products (BIMobjects) in their actual surrounding
  • ... drag and drop objects around the actual space
  • … display the BIM parameters of each object, using BIMobject Graphical User Interface (GUI) or additional “floating in space” information panels.

The system is very user friendly and navigation is intuitive.
