Introducing Solibri Inside: Allowing designers automated rule-based BIM quality checking as they model – Resulting in better BIM thanks to an integrated SaaS solution within Nemetschek authoring tools

Corporate News

Today Solibri is proud to introduce a new cloud-based service offering – Solibri Inside. Solibri Inside, a SaaS-based solution, provides in-design model checking for users of Graphisoft Archicad, Allplan, and Vectorworks.

Created as a solution for designers, Solibri Inside works as a native feature that can be used within the authoring tool and can run checks within a SaaS-based environment as and when the designer wishes. No longer does the designer need to export the model and open other software to perform basic model checking. This innovative solution comes inbuilt within Nemetschek authoring tools and can be easily accessed from a simple palette-like functionality in the UI of the authoring tool. Solibri Inside ensures that every model can be checked upfront before sharing within the workflow with other team members. The integrated quality checking is a time saver for the designer, ensuring the details are right, before submitting the BIM to the coordination workflow.

Ville Kyytsönen, Solibri CEO, stated, “Today sees another step towards ‘better BIM’. Solibri’s mission is to improve the quality of digital construction. BIM is essential in this mission - it is the ‘single source of truth'. Today, more models are created than ever, yet many lack the essentials of a good BIM: the information. This missing information makes Quality Assurance impossible to deliver. Solibri is improving the quality of models by bringing quality checking as part of the model authoring process. With Solibri Inside, we improve the process by enabling more QA early in the process before coordination takes place.”.

The first release of Solibri Inside allows the checking of Door & Window clearances and the supporting Level of Information (LOI). The service is a standard free package within Graphisoft Archicad, Allplan and Vectorworks. By registering, more features are unlocked, and the Premium paid package allows the customization of rule checks to suit a designer’s specific project need - ensuring everyone in the team works with the same requirements. The solution will continue to evolve in close cooperation with the users, further automating the QA process.

Yves Padrines, CEO Nemetschek Group “Shaping the world starts with integrated solutions based on open BIM standards that lead the industry. Here we see the strength that Nemetschek Group can leverage for the customer. Inbuilt checking within not one, but all three of our authoring solutions. Quality assurance where it matters, at the source of every construction project – in the design phase. The workflow continues to digitize, and we are doing our part to offer seamless, quality information to pass along the construction process in a uniform and efficient manner”.

Viktor Varkonyi, Chief Division Officer for the Planning & Design Division and member of the Executive Board at the Nemetschek Group, “Solibri’s solution offering in BIM quality assurance has always been pivotal in developing and promoting OPEN BIM. Today we see Solibri’s core value being offered, at source, to a large group of our customers. The idea that a designer can focus on their core work, and yet trust that their work is both buildable and ready for sharing is something that drives this industry in the right direction. Again, we see Nemetschek Group driving positive industry change.”

More information is coming soon on on the specific release dates per authoring tool.
