Solibri's new version 9.12.0 introduces the new BCF Live Connector, which comes with its very own layout. The new BCF Live will bring significant improvements to managing and communication of issues, making it up-to-date, effortless, and more reliable.
The BCF Live connector brings users a new, simplified BCF Live view, as well as a Live Issue Details view. The connection itself is more stable than the previous connector, and live, meaning that all users working on the issue management server project continuously have access to the newest information. We have also implemented a Conflict Resolution dialogue, to handle the issue of two users overwriting each other’s data. In the case of mid-air collisions, Solibri users will be prompted which version of data they wish to keep.
The Live connection will also avoid large transfers of data, but rather handle transfers in small bundles to make synchronization of issues seamless. BCF Live Connector is compatible with any BCF server that is compliant with the BCF-API standard, such as Aconex, BIM Track, BIMcollab and Bimsync.

The full feature-set of the new BCF Live Connector is available in the new version of Solibri Office and Site. Solibri's free product, Anywhere, will also continue to play a crucial role in the BCF collaboration workflow. Using Anywhere, users can view, comment and edit BCF Live Issues. For more information on using BCF Live Connector, please visit our Online Help.
The Check selected feature has been improved, and it no longer removes previous checking results links from issues. There is also a new notification, which informs users that checking results can become altered after making changes to the model or rule parameters when using only Check selected, and prompts the user to choose if they still want to continue with the operation. In addition to this, when an issue is created from a category containing results with several checking decisions, these checking decisions are now listed in the Issues table in the same way as they are in the Issue Details view. This better represents the issue states and also helps with filtering.
