Maximizing Solibri Model Checker Benefits

You have made an investment in the Solibri Model Checker technology and we wish to keep you informed about product enhancements, new capabilities and how we are addressing and supporting the ever growing number of BIM use cases. As Solibri Model Checker (SMC) usage continues to grow exponentially, mirroring the adoption of model-based processes, we are seeing more models with more data, which means quality of the design and the data is becoming a more critical consideration. We will regularly publish this newsletter, keeping the content fresh and relevant, so it becomes a valuable reference resource for you. We will explore roles, rules, and use cases, as well as Tips & Tricks, to make sure you are receiving the maximum ROI and positive user experience. As the market evolves, so too does Solibri Model Checker. Please enjoy this initial issue and feel free to suggest any areas where you would like to know more about SMC capabilities.

SMC and BIM Use Cases

Think of SMC as your 'Swiss Army Knife', with each blade addressing a different BIM use case. There's no need to buy a different technology each time a new requirement is identified. Just check the Solibri Solution Center (SSC) or use the ruleset templates included in SMC. If you need any help, contact us. One thing is very clear - today there is more data present in models, resulting in a very real requirement to manage, verify and validate the data, in addition to the model. What good is data if you don't know it's accuracy, completeness, or compliance with an established requirement? If you are modeling to support any of the requirements below, SMC should be part of your workflow. COBie Level of Development (LOD) Model QA/QC Code Compliance (AutoCodes) Construction Site Safety Owner Space Audits Coordination BIM Guidelines & Requirements Risk Mitigation BIM Validation GSA - BIM Spatial Validation Information Takeoff - Estimating Let's start with the COBie and LOD use cases: COBie - SMC enables a COBie workflow that includes checking for accuracy and completeness, a direct link between the data cells and the model for visualization, and reporting in multiple formats. Go to the SSC (solution.solibri.com) and download the COBie Platform and the COBie US Resources to get started.
