Meet Trace Software International at the BIM World Paris
BIM World opens its door to the BIM professionals involved in the whole life-cycle of the building project on the 2nd and 3rd of April 2019 at the Paris Expo, Portes de Versailles in France. The event provides a strategic platform for business and innovation within the BIM industry.
Trace Software International, the leader in developing advanced engineering solutions, confirms its participation in the BIM World. The company will showcase the newest version of elec calc™ BIM, the world-class software providing a seamless integration of the electrical calculations into the BIM process at the stand E52/F53.
BIM World Paris
The value proposition of BIM World Paris is to create relevant business synergies in between all the parties involved in the whole life-cycle of the building project. By convening different needs and professions (design, construction, operation, real estate, urban planning, sustainable development, and smart territories), it will be possible to analyze the power of BIM in driving the digital transformation of the entire building ecosystem.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the digital management of the information processes for the design, construction, and management of building projects. The use of the digital model – the representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a structure – promotes interoperability and interaction among the various stakeholders.
BIM is a disruptive force which is establishing a new business model. It is changing the way buildings look, are built, and even function. To stay competitive, professionals are required to possess a new set of skills and tools. In such a changing scenario, characterized by new challenges and opportunities, BIM World is the perfect occasion to keep up with the advances in both technology and practices and gain a deeper understanding of the present and the future of the building industry.
elec calc™ BIM
elec calc™ BIM is the first software in the world that perfectly integrates the electrical calculation into the BIM process. With elec calc™ BIM, the user can design, calculate and size the electrical installation in the digital model in IFC 4 format, generated by any 3D architecture software (Revit, ArchiCAD, SketchUp …).
This state-of-the-art software allows information to be shared by different participants along the different stages of design, construction, and operation. From the aspect of cable routing, the user will calculate the length of the cables as objects in the layout. With elec calc™ BIM, 3D model updates are available. It is possible to import a review of IFC and receive a notification of the changes in the installation one-line diagram and export both IFC and BCF. Within the installation, the software can also build the one-line diagram from the explorer and also build the one-line diagram from the 3D mock-up. The compatibility with the electrical objects available on the BIM&CO platform is also an important asset for the integration and calculation of the products of manufacturers.
Electrical professionals can benefit from the latest in electrical calculation efficiency provided by elec calc™ within the BIM process. In fact, a more rigorous and integrated design leads to lower constructions costs, through less waste. Furthermore, the software allows improved risk management as it is possible to count on more reliable information.
