Extract & Convert BIM Data

Read data from common BIM formats like IFC, Revit, BCF and SketchUp and extract only the details you need like 2D floor plans, 3D shells, or specific attributes. Export to any of the over 400 formats supported by FME including 3D, CAD, GIS and those of commonly used databases. Share, leverage and store BIM information however it is needed.

View All Supported Formats

Share BIM Data

Distribute BIM data in more widely accessible formats like 3D PDF or Esri Geodatabase. Control what parts are converted to present the level of detail required.

Leverage BIM Data

Make the most of your BIM data by transforming it into the schema or model most useful for the work you do. FME lets you remap attributes and transform geometry to create models for routing, space or facilities management applications.

Store BIM Data

Extract and store BIM data using a range of different databases supported by FME including Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, Geodatabase, MongoDB, and more.

Process BIM Data

Manipulate and inspect BIM geometry and attributes to ensure it will work properly and help you meet objectives in the target system.

Transform BIM

Access tools that let you alter BIM geometry and attributes to fit any data model requirements.

Integrate with Other Data Types

Blend data from other sources with BIM to produce more informative mashups. For example apply raster textures to surfaces.

Validate BIM

Use the GeometryValidator transformer to check BIM for erroneous or missing geometry and optionally repair it.

Calculate Physical Properties

Calculate distances, areas, volumes and statistics for BIM components from within FME workflows.

Automate BIM Processes

Ensure systems across your enterprise are always up to date with the latest information, including that derived from BIM applications. By deploying BIM processing workflows via FME Server or FME Cloud, you can automate them to run at scheduled frequencies or in response to real-time events.

About BIM

Building information modeling - or BIM - involves the creation of complex 3D representations of structures that include highly descriptive information about dimensions, materials, manufacturers, and more. BIM models are increasingly the best way to exchange information through the lifecycle of an asset but interoperability between disciplines and organizations is a key challenge. FME allows you create automatic conversions of BIM information to suit the needs of any asset stakeholders throughout its lifecycle.
