SolidWorks & BIM

SolidWorks is a BIM-ready tool!

SolidWorks creates intelligent 3D models supplying BIM objects that can be integrated into the overall build.

Manufacturers who build products & components for the buildings and construction industry can quickly and easily prepare their SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD models for use with AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) design tools. Proper preparation and simplification of the models is critical to save their customers time and expand use of product models in building designs.BIM wheel.png

Pentagon Solutions is the leading BIM Implementation Consultancy Service provider in Northern & Southern Ireland. Let us show you how you can use the SolidWorks 3D CAD platform within the BIM environment.

Prep Your Designs for AEC - SOLIDWORKS provides a simple workflow process to guide you in preparing 3D models for use with AEC applications: 

  • SolidWorks has contained the ability to export IFC formats since 2007 which allows you to share data across other BIM platforms (such as Autodesk Revit, Bentley, ArchiCAD etc)
  • Guides orientation of the model in the alternative coordinate systems used in AEC software
  • Enables selection of appropriate location surfaces in the model for positioning in the AEC models
  • Helps simplify the existing 3D model to protect IP and reduce file size using SOLIDWORKS Defeature technology
  • Provides preset Level of Detail (LOD) control option to further speed the simplification process
  • Displays a preview of the refined 3D output as you progress
  • Saves the model in familiar ACIS (*.SAT) format – which is familiar to most AEC applications
