Vcad for BIM 360® is the integration between Autodesk’s Document Manager, BIM 360®, and the Vcad platform, that allows the easy and immediate creation of reports and dashboards in Power BI, using the data and graphic elements of your BIM files.
ALL OF THIS IN SECONDS!
Vcad for BIM 360® can manage IFC, REVIT®, and soon NAVISWORKS® file formats too.
WHAT IS VCAD FOR BIM 360®
This integration will allow users to access their models stored on BIM 360® directly from the Vcad for BIM 360® web app. The data extraction and normalization, report creation, etc. will all be managed by the Vcad for BIM 360® app without the need to copy files to an external repository or process the models again. This also means that there will no longer be the need to create a dedicated Forge account for the file conversion.
The use of the Autodesk authentication system, a low level of required read-only authorization (BIM 360® document management), and the saving of processed data in the Autodesk cloud all contribute to making this integration easy, safe, and fast to use.
PLANS, PROJECTS AND DATA EXTRACTION
Vcad for BIM 360® can use the models saved in the parent folders PLANS and PROJECT FILES.
The models contained in PLANS are divided into multiple BIM 360® documents which contain a single view each. In this case it will be possible to create one or more reports that focus on the document.
The models contained in PROJECT FILES may have multiple views.
In any case, Vcad will be able to use the views defined in the models: when operating in PLANS, Vcad will point to the document representing the single view; when operating in PROJECT FILES, it will be possible to decide which view to use each time a report template is being generated.
With Vcad for BIM 360® it will be possible to create report using different versions of the model. The user will in fact be able to create different reports based on different versions of a same model.
Moreover, it will always be possible to easily update an existing report to use a different version of the same model.
With Vcad for BIM 360® we decided to give our users extreme levels of flexibility and convenience when occupying slots with their models.
In fact, a single slot occupied by a model can generate an infinite number of reports. The report can use any view or phase of a model as well as any version present in BIM 360®.
This is true also for the documents defined in the PLANS folder. All the documents generated by the partition of the views from a model will be counted as occupying a single slot for the model they derive from.
