MALMO, Sweden, Oct 14, 2016 – BIMobject AB announces its plans to release the cloud based development platform BIMscript and LENA to the Autodesk Fusion 360 solution. The first version of BIMscript and LENA for Fusion 360 is planned to be launched in Q1 of 2017.
Fusion 360 is a cloud-based 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE platform for product development. It combines industrial and mechanical design, simulation, collaboration, and machining in a single package. The tools in Fusion 360 enable fast and easy exploration of design ideas with an integrated concept-to-production toolset. BIMobject’s strategy with BIMscript and LENA is to make it available for as many as possible to enable a fast and effective way of producing parametric BIM objects.
More than 100 external developers have received their accreditation and develop today in BIMscript and LENA, that currently exists on top of 3D CAD system Rhino. To broaden the usage of BIMscript, BIMobject will make it available for Autodesk Fusion 360.
Autodesk Fusion 360 is the first 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE tool of its kind. It connects the entire product development process in a single cloud-based platform that works with both Mac and PC. The added capabilities in Autodesk Fusion 360 means that in an intelligent way, a BIM object is created directly from the product design and manufacturing solution. In a smart way the digital product is published on BIMobject.com to enable it to be downloaded into building projects as a part of a BIM model. This will shorten the cycle from design to market considerably, and allow, product development and manufacturing to be in sync with digital marketing, product information and configuration. The solution will also support e-business with BIMobject’s newly released BIMsupply platform.
Fusion 360 with BIMscript and LENA has the potential to open up a whole new target group of product designers and developers that directly can launch their products digitally, be specified and even sell their products on-line through BIMsupply.com. A digital flow from design to market.
“The support for Fusion 360 with BIMscript and LENA will make it much easier for designers and developers to develop, maintain, publish, distribute and sell their products as BIM objects on-line. BIMscript with LENA simplifies the use of Fusion 360 to create smart, parametric BIM objects in multiple languages, level of detail, with all classifications and standards for properties,” says Jim Quanci, senior director partner development at Autodesk Inc.
“As BIMsupply has many components from Autodesk Forge, there will be very interesting synergies to use LENA on top of Autodesk Fusion 360 to keep a consistent information flow between product development, BIM integration and later supply management with fabrication, orders and maintenance,” says Ben O’Donnell CTO of BIMobject.
“It’s all about connecting things, as we go fully digital, every connection point to another saves time, makes it easier to use, and in the end provides a single source of truth in an information infrastructure. Connecting the Autodesk Cloud solutions together with BIMobject Cloud solutions will create a seamless flow for digital products through the life cycle, connecting both BIMobject Cloud and BIMsupply. This is the future of digital development and product information delivery”, says Stefan Larsson, CEO and founder of BIMobject.
