SCOTTSDALE, AZ, July 9, 2019 – Open Design Alliance (ODA), leading provider of CAD interoperability and component technology, announced today the release of BimRv SDK 2020. BimRv SDK, formerly known as BIM SDK, is the leading stand-alone toolkit for interoperability with Autodesk Revit files.
“BimRv 2020 features the export of property and geometry data from Revit files, to JSON and OBJ, respectively,” commented Neil Peterson, ODA president. “These exports allow clients to access Revit file data from a wide range of applications, without the need to write complex code.
“In addition, significant progress was made toward our goal of parametric element creation. When completed, parametric element creation will allow clients to fully automate the generation of Revit models from any application.”
Sergey Vishnevetsky, ODA development director, said, “Version 2020 also features improvements to sectioning support, new parameter support for element sets, and new sweep and revolution elements. In addition, client applications can now add custom properties to elements, a useful feature for many types of applications.”
BimRv 2020 also contains fixes for several hundred member-reported issues. The SDK and release notes are available for download at www.opendesign.com.
