With a week to go until Build Qatar Live 2012 (see post), the latest collaborative openBIM event promoted by London, UK-based construction collaboration technology vendor Asite, ten teams from across the globe have signed up (so far) to test their building information modelling and collaboration capabilities against each other. Observers can also follow the competition and view the 3D designs as they are uploaded live onto Asite. It’s also not too late to enter the event – you can register here for an opportunity to test your BIM skills against the rest of the AEC community.
And while on the subject of Asite, the company has announced an integration with US-based Tech Soft 3D whereby the latter’s HOOPS Exchange and Visualize products can be used to create and building information models. Asite CEO says Tony Ryan says:
“Tech Soft 3D was able to work with our software-as-a-service model to help us provide an immersive 3D experience to our cBIM users. … HOOPS Visualize and HOOPS Exchange had the functionality and reliability we needed to ensure the highest level of performance within cBIM.”
