SOLIBRI tips – Section Tool

SOLIBRI Model checker is there to improve BIM models for integrity, quality, and physical security. The model checker X-rays the building and reveals potential flaws and weaknesses in the design, highlights clashing components and checks that the model complies with the Building codes and organisations own best practices.

You can download the free version from the link below. It’s great for model quality assurance, issue management, and IFC model checking.
