Solibri Model Checker v8 brings BIM model quality into focus with its powerful rules-based checking and auditing tool
15 February 2013, AEC Magazine, Greg Corke
"In its simplest form, Solibri Model Checker can be used to perform clash detection — hard clash and proximity clash — but the software is so much more powerful than this.
Literally anything in the model can be checked — that all rooms have openings, that there are no duplicate components (e.g. an architectural wall on top of a structural wall), that there are no gaps between building elements (e.g. walls and floors), that a structural column goes through a slab, or that spaces are properly allocated within the model (a wall may have moved but the space not updated correctly)."

AECbytes, Lachmi Khemlani
"Only application that incorporates sufficient intelligence about buildings to check BIM models; powerful compression technology that reduces model sizes dramatically; ability to combine multiple disciplinary models in one file; well-organized interface that is easy to learn and use; excellent 3D visualization interface; extensive range of rulesets to check a model; dedicated Ruleset Manager to configure rules to desired standards and create new rules; ability to easily generate presentations and reports showing the checking results; extensive information takeoff capabilities with several customizable definitions to precisely control the output; new Hyperlink Manager that allows links to be added at any level; ability to automatically generate a section box to better visualize problems that are detected; good quality of built-in documentation and several online leaning videos."
BIM quality control at Multiconsult
AEC Magazine, Greg Corke
"Solibri Model Checker is a program which is able to automatically analyse the quality of BIM models and the designs. It uses so-called rules-based analysis, and is able to analyse both individual models and combined models, which can include multiple models by different design disciplines. Solibri includes (for example) rules for validating the quality of the BIM models, accessibility analysis and interference detection to name just a few. It visually presents all design issues found and gives a clear text description of the issue, as well as the physical location, making it easy to get to the bottom of the design issues."

A closer look at Solibri Model Checker
As software for BIM (Building Information Modeling) continues to gain prominence as a design and construction tool, it is enticing AEC companies of all sizes to at least become familiar with its promises. But a quick step into the realm of software that empowers BIM can leave one feeling a bit overwhelmed. The offerings are immense and it’s hard to quickly know which AEC players would use which products. This article provides a rundown of three key players -- Solibri, Bentley and Graphisoft -- as well as some insight into what each vendor's software helps the typical user accomplish.
