Solibri Model Checker


Solibri Model Checker, the model-checking application for BIM models, actually pre-dates the term “building information modeling”—I was introduced to it at an “interoperability” workshop all the way back in 2001 when the term “BIM” hadn’t even been introduced yet. Since then, the application’s repertoire has been expanded to include a much wider range of capabilities in addition to model-checking, including multi-disciplinary coordination, clash detection, model comparison, quantity take-off, and issue management. This review takes a detailed look at its interface and functionality, and some examples of how it is being implemented by AEC firms all over the world.
