Accelerating BIM workshop

I got the chance to tell something about my Sketchup plugins at the “Accelerating BIM workshop” yesterday at the TU/e.

It has been a very interesting afternoon, my head is bouncing with ideas!

New menu + inches complete

The new menu based on SKUI is finally complete!
A little more testing and then it’s time to release a new version, that takes inches as input units(next to the good old metric system)! 😀

Rebuilding the menu

I have updated BIM-Tools to also accept values in inches. Yeah!(almost)

There is one problem that I still need to solve, the old menu does not properly recognize fractions in imperial unit’s, so all values get rounded up to full feet.

I’m currently working on a new menu based on SKUI.

So a little more patience… I’m almost there!

I’m currently working on support for inches!

Building IfcOpenShell

Yeah! I finally managed to build the source code for IfcOpenShell.
I am trying to improve IFC support using this tool, so my BIM-Tools would be able to export and import more IFC information than is possible with the official IFC import/export.

Let’s see where this might lead…

bim-tools 0.12.0 – It is stable!

Version 0.12.0:

  • The plugin is stable!
  • Improved IFC export(Walls/floor-slabs/roof-slabs, still needs work)

For the first time I encourage everyone to give it a try! 😀
It needs finetuning and a lot more features, but modelling and editing works nicely(without losing relations or crashing).
I will try to make a video and some documentation soon.

BIM-Tools website online

After over a year of working on this project I decided it’s about time to set up a dedicated project website.

Until now I have used Google code for all documentation purposes, it’s great for hosting code but does not seem the best place to create tutorials and the like.

I won’t start a forum here because the SketchUcation forum is such a great place!

So, if you’re looking for code or downloads, check:
