October sees the launch of Version 9 of the Solibri Model Checker. Local rule sets are enhanced, easier to find and configure. Different rule sets can be applied to different parts of the build, so additional checks can be performed as the build develops. Licence management has also been updated, with a new cloud-based licensing system.
Easy Access and Management
In the UK, COBie regulation has led to a need for specific rule sets, classifications and add-ons. To assist with the delivery of new rule sets, the Solibri Solution Center has been set up to quickly access and add available rules to current projects from within Solibri Model Checker.
Users and administrators can now directly access licences and any selected add-ons with the cloud-based licencing system. Updates can be activated more easily and you do not need a separate licence server. Solibri Solution Center also allows flexible licence management on the fly.
Enhanced Rule Systems
In the early stages of a project, rule sets required cover basic quality needs, such as spatial arrangement. During later development phases, more demanding rule sets are required, which deal with the complexity of the situation. Version 9 allows self-configurable rule sets for better control throughout a project.
Improved Checklists and Information Provision
Version 9 now allows ‘remember to check’ rules, which assist in reminding of tasks that improve QA/QC but may not be directly related to the BIM file. Combined with deeper analysis of a particular problem, Version 9 allows more problems to be found early in the build process.
With the latest version of Solibri Model Checker, you are able to check what else is happening with the components involved. Instead of reporting hundreds of interferences, we are able to find the one problem that caused the issue.
Faster and Simpler Issue Handling
Content can be automatically included for issues by selecting the default content box, and issue descriptions can then be added. You can include rule name, description, category name, issue name and description to default comments automatically.
Hyperlinks can now also be included with rulesets, enabling quick references to relevant BIM standards or building code.
