Global provider of design software Bricsys, part of Hexagon, is collaborating with virtual reality platform VREX to improve model exchange workflows, allowing users to create detailed models in BricsCAD BIM and export to Vrex Virtual Reality (VR) platform with minimal effort.
The enhanced workflow enables architecture, engineering, construction and operations (AECO) companies to streamline collaboration between the multiple stakeholders working together on a project in a VR environment.
The BricsCAD BIM solution leverages OpenBIM and certified IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) workflows, enabling Vrex subscribers to virtually meet inside the model, perform visual inspections and exchange buildings and project data in a compliant manner from any location.
“BricsCAD BIM equips Vrex users with an AI-powered design tool supporting flexible workflows, and feature-rich tools that have an IFC-first approach, paving the way for successful projects and better products,” says Rahul Kejriwal, CEO of Bricsys.
Easy to use, both platforms support the exchange of BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) issues via interface services such as BIM Track, BIMsync and BIMcollab to allow easy communication of issues emerging during the virtual meeting to be resolved within BricsCAD BIM.
“Vrex integrating with BricsCAD is another step towards the global BIM integration we want to achieve,” Hans Fredrik Johansen, CEO of VREX says. “With Vrex-BricsCAD anyone, regardless of their experience level, can step into the 3D model and understand them instantly.”
