Data Conversion from the Mechanical CAD System to BIM

Bridging two different CAD systems, CAD-to-BIM Translator transfers models and their properties from one format to another.

Bridging two different CAD systems, CAD-to-BIM Translator transfers models and their properties from one format to another.

The demand for digital product data in the construction sector is accelerating. Driving factors are increasing adoption of building information modeling (BIM), legal requirements for product traceability and commercial pressure to deliver fully specified technical designs of projects quicker and error-free. However, architects and mechanical engineers have different design needs, resulting in often non-compatible CAD tools and file formats. AMC Bridge suggests an example of a workable solution for that issue in the CAD-to-BIM Translator technology demonstration.

In this technology demonstration, AMC Bridge shows how to translate 3D CAD geometry and product metadata from the Creo Parametric 3D modeling software from PTC, a mechanical CAD tool, into the Autodesk Revit software, a tool for BIM and architectural design.
