OpenBuildings Designer Reviews & Product Details

OpenBuildings Designer Overview

What is OpenBuildings Designer?

OpenBuildings Designer is a multi-discipline building design application that enables BIM workflows to provide information-rich models for the design, analysis, simulation, and documentation of buildings. It incorporates OpenBuildings Designer computational design and energy services for building performance evaluation. OpenBuildings Designer immerses you in a 3D modeling environment and provides site content by referencing reality models. The application shares a catalog of design components across the project team. Built-in clash detection allows designers to coordinate building systems. The federated data approach to modeling and drawing management allows users to work on any size models simultaneously across distributed geographies. • Multi-discipline: Increase collaboration among architects, mechanical, electrical, and structural engineers with a shared set of tools and workflows • Interoperability: Integrate information you have from multiple formats and easily work on projects of any size • Information-rich deliverables: Clearly communicate your design intent with reliable deliverables that you can easily customize • Unrestrictive design environment: Model anything with total freedom from buildings with simple to highly complex geometry and designs • Building performance: Simulate buildings and predict real-world performance of the asset quickly and with precision to explore various options for iterative refinement
