bimsync has a range of APIs that makes it easy to embed and access BIM data in your software. We provide APIs for 2D and 3D visualization, issue handling using the standard BCF API and access to all BIM data through our intuitive REST API.
Auto-generated floor plans for all models as SVG files with relevant BIM information included
Interactive floor plans
bimsync generates floor plans for every floor in you building including symbols for doors.
Select, highlight and colorize
All closed polygons like spaces can be given a background color while all polygons can be given a ticker line and color to indicate selection.
Add your own symbols and graphics
Add symbols and signs to the canvas to indicate technical components or escape routes as on the example. Provide your own images.
Select and highlight spaces and objects
Select one or more spaces by clicking on the canvas or highlight objects on the canvas in the same way as highlighting objects in the 3D view.
Set and track the position
The built in position marker can be used both to sync position on a given floor and room with the 3D viewer or to navigate the model. Drag the arrow around to navigate. There is a separate API library to sync the 2D and 3D viewer with a few lines of code.
Our REST API gives you access to the information in your BIM files as well as members, teams and linked data.
Projects, organizations, teams and users
bimsync has a flexible model for handling projects, organizations, teams and users. Users can belong to multiple projects, teams and organizations and be managed through the API.
Models and revisions
Create, update and delete models. A model is a repository to track versions of BIM files. bimsync gives you access to the complete revision history for any given model.
IFC data for objects and types
Get access the I in your BIM. All information about the individual BIM objects, corresponding types and property values and units is available. Use queries to get the information you need, presented in a harmonized format.
Retrieve any of the existing structure in your BIM models. Structures are available using the composition relationship , component types, layers and groups ( generic grouping and zones )
OAuth 2.0 authentication
Create tokens for 2D and 3D viewer
Work with libraries. Libraries are any external information linked to objects in the BIM. It can be product information, documents and drawings, classifications, ontologies like bSDD or your own imported structure from a spreadsheet or comma separated file.
API v2 extends API v1 with a range of new features and is currently in Beta.
bimsync supports the BCF API specification from buildingSMART international with additional support for import and export of files on BCF 1 and 2 format.
Exchange issues from a whole range of BCF compatible tools using our built in BCF server. bimsync supports every available BCF version for file based exchange as well as the various versions of the BCF API.
