AceCad’s BIMReview hits version 7.1

Design Data partner AceCad recently released version 7.1 of its software BIMReview. BIMReview is a collaborative BIM project review tool for use across the construction industry. The software helps consolidate BIM models from multiple sources at many different points in the construction and design process.

Because BIMReview is able to import IFC and CIS-2 formatted models, it integrates easily with SDS/2. In version 7.1, this integration with SDS/2 is getting even better. 

New for this version is that Grouped Member data is now imported into BIMReview as part of an xml export SDS/2. Users will now be able to get a hierarchical view of the grouped member and all the parts that are included in it.

Gathered sheet drawings will also be exported in the xml model data from SDS/2 in BIMReview 7.1. Now when a user chooses to view drawings of components, any available gathered sheet drawing will be shown.

Learn more about BIMReview and all its new features and improvements at AceCad’s website.

2014 NASCC Wrap-up

Last week the Design Data team headed to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for the 2014 NASCC. We had an awesome time demonstrating SDS/2 and catching up with our customers, partners and other members of the steel industry.

In booth #1503, we introduced the new How/2 series by SDS/2 where we show you how SDS/2 can help you reach your goals. To go with the theme, we handed out hockey pucks, symbolizing those goals.

During the conference we ran a contest giving away two SDS/2 swag bags during each day of the conference. Thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to the winners!

We’ve put together a photo album on our Facebook page highlighting our time at NASCC as well the booths of some of our customers and partners. You can view the album on our Facebook page.

A few of our partners have also posted photos and video from the conference that you should definitely take a look at. 

Peddinghaus has put together an awesome video from the conference, including live demos of their plate processor, band saw, etc., as well as clips from their special event. Make sure to head over to Peddinhaus’ website and check it out for yourself.

Our partner Controlled Automation has also compiled some of their best photos from NASCC into a Facebook album. See photos of the Revolution thermal processing machine in action, including live demos of marking & scribing, cutting, coping and processing all sides of material on their Facebook page.

For the ultimate photo recap of the conference, head over to AISC’s Facebook page for their collection of photos from the event with several shots of the exhibit hall, presentations and more!
