Tim Jones - Autodesk COBie

Announced at this years BuildingSMART BIM Prospects in London. 3Squared are collaborating with Autodesk Inc. to bring COBie support to Navisworks and BIM 360 Glue.

The collaboration aims to bring COBie management into the construction phase of the project, supporting COBie data management beyond just the design phase and widening the COBie data contributors.

Making it possible to federate, validate and publish construction phase data such as commissioning and testing data to the COBie file without the need for complex workflows involving other platforms.

It was clear from reactions by the BIM Prospects audience that this was a welcomed initiative.

Autodesk Inc. and 3Squared plan to release further information soon and Autodesk customers will get invited to by involved with technical previews during late spring 2015.
