Melbourne OpenBIM Event

SIAL (Spatial information Architecture Laboratory) at RMIT University in Melbourne have been very generous to host an OpenBIM event on the evening of Monday the 18th February.  

It's a great privilege to announce that Dr Thomas Liebich is also in Melbourne at this time.  Thomas is the leader of the IFC Development team for Building Smart International based in Germany, and also a director of AEC3.

Thomas will present on the IFC standard (past, current and future) including the imminent release of IFC4 as an ISO standard.

I will also present on OpenBIM workflows and the research/development I've done in the past 3 years.  This will include insights into project application of generative BIM workflows from Grasshopper to Revit and Tekla.  I will also be discussing why current IFC implementations by BIM software vendors have only utilized IFC to a fraction of it's capability and potential.   I will also demonstrate benefits design teams can realize from collaboration of model sharing using IFC including Fabrication, Analysis and Design ( Structural, Energy, Egress, Building Regulation compliance), Facility Management etc.

Please rsvp if you'd like to attend to jonm@geometrygym.com or contact me for more details.  We plan to start presentations at 6pm, but will be there from 5:30pm at the multi-purpose room of the Design Hub (Level 1).

Great that Thomas will be there as well, we actually talked for the 1st yesterday....I demo'd some GG based IFC models, and he seemed very impressed with your tools.
