At NBS we are committed to supporting open standards for BIM. Furthermore, we have been one of the most active organisations in the UK involved in developing these standards and encouraging their use. Here we explore just what that means in practice.
Discover how NBS Create has been designed to enable you to quickly and easily specify construction products either generically or by using manufacturer and product references. This guide also illustrates how to export a full list of all the manufacturers and product specified in your NBS Create specification, plus how to output into a COBie format.
Recently presented at the BIM Show Live 2013, Dr Stephen Hamil, NBS Director of Design and Innovation, discusses how NBS Create and the NBS National BIM Library can be used to enable information flow throughout the entire BIM process, thus maximising the benefits of BIM. The features shown in the NBS Plug-in for Revit including Autodesk Revit 2014 compatibility will be available with the next version, scheduled for release in June 2013.
When documenting a building project there are huge benefits around using a consistent approach to structured data.
