Share information-rich models securely and in a relevant context for all stakeholders, providing a complete multidisciplinary view of projects. Project teams can capture and reuse information throughout design, construction and operations. You benefit from faster, relevant, accurate information access with all the details relevant for each stakeholder.
What is an imodel?
iModels help you share model and project information. Think of them as containers for exchanging infrastructure information. You can use iModels to exchange information for projects associated with the lifecycle of infrastructure assets. You can ensure that information flows easily, completely, and accurately between and within design, construction, and operations environments. Share all component information, including business properties, geometry, graphics, and relationships in a format that is open, providing standard interfaces for business, engineering, construction, and operations applications from multiple vendors.
Share any model
Publish models so that they can be visualized and interrogated with maximum precision by all participants, regardless of the authoring application.
The Right STuff
Customize models to provide the information each participant needs. iModels support unique workflows and standards with the level of detail that you decide.
Enable workflows for capturing information about models, including information provided by model consumers, while preventing changes to the original.
Why Use iModels?
Effective and efficient sharing and distribution of information is critical to the success of every project and when done well, this can reduce errors, compress the project schedule, and reduce project costs. iModels help.
Sharing and distributing information across a distributed project enterprise is difficult, given the diverse data sources and formats that are required to complete a project. iModels help.
You don’t need the authoring application to accurately display graphics and query embedded information.
iModels remember their origin. They retain knowledge about their source and the state of the information when they were published.
iModels are secure. They are read-only and support concepts like password and certificate protection as well as expiration dates.
iModels are geometrically precise and retain all business information.
iModels are open. A variety of applications, plug-ins, and interfaces are available for viewing, query, and integration.
