Solid Edge compatibility to BIM?

Creator
Creator

UK requirement to supply all building information modeling (BIM) for public works to be in 3D by 2016. The required standard for BIM compatibility is ITC. This format is supported by AutoDesk and Solid Works.

When can we expect SE compliance?

Solid Edge features such as this are scheduled based on user demand across the user-base. Thus far, we have not seen sufficient demand to justify spending our customer's money on this. However, it does seem to be increasing in interest, so we have it on our radar. What would be your particular use-case? What do you produce and what would you need to exchange with whom in IFC format?

BIM is to civil and architecture what is PLM is to mechanical design.

 

BIM is based on the 6D concept where each D add a dimension to a project,

 

Generally speking:

1D is the idealization phase

2D is the is a study phase.

3D is the model it self (BOM)

4D is the time  apply to the 3D model ( the schedule)

5D is the $ dimension of a project

6D construction, delivery it may also include operations and dismantle

 

Where information need to be exchange is when you reach the 3D as you need to send the model for planification and cost evaluation.

 

Ultimaty the model can be use by any goverment and public services.

Siemens doe snot seems to officially support the standard but in the list we see Bentley. And lately Bentley and Siemens anounce strategic alliance

The Siemens Industry Automation Division and Bentley Systems announced today at the Hannover Messe that they are stepping up their strategic collaboration, focusing on the process industry sector in fields such as chemicals, energy, pharmaceuticals, and oil and gas. Both companies are targeting increased interoperability between the Comos engineering software solution from Siemens and Bentley's OpenPlant 2D/3D system for plant design and construction.

Not directly AEC but the industrial side EPC as ramification with AEC.

 

My personal opinion as SE get more market share it would be inevitable to have multiple development team like AEC; ECP; Mechanial to answer specific industries needs. It is a whole new game getting in place on the check board ...all this because 3D was push 30 years ago  Smiley Happy and slowly we will pass the 50% market share for 3D that will be the tipping point.
