UL just launched SPOT, a web-based product sustainability information tool that will simplify the process for choosing credible green products and facilitate the design community for using that information into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow. Presently, there are over 40,000 products and SPOT database will provide huge benefits to the architects, designers and specifiers to recognize products through sustainable attributes, MasterFormat product codes and building rating system credits like LEED v4 and the WELL Building Standard. The app version of Spot is also available in the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Besides, UL is going to create an add-in that will allow AutoDesk Revit users to obtain product data from SPOT and allocate it directly to their project. This will provide exceptional perceptibility into authentic green product information, allowing superior precision in green building reporting and certification to regional, national and international building standards.
Spot integrates various product attributes to make the selection method simpler for architects and designers, and will change the way certification data is transmitted into BIM project designs.

CADfix is the newest CAD software that allows the engineers to smoothly shift files amid various systems as well as adjust and correct the organized model devoid of reproducing support for all systems from the source.
By using CADfix, Engineers get the ability to import models in various file formats. Once the model is delivered into CADfix, users can start repairs or amendments to the model, correct resolution and accurateness, make analysis and translation, and then adjust and export the model in diversified formats.
A CAD model can be imported into CADfix and rectified, changed, translated, and then the file is adjusted to diverse formats to port it to various systems.
CADfix facilitates the users to part curved facets for exact boundaries in 3D printing. There are tools to rectify and export STL files.
Additive Manufacturing: CADfix is also very useful for additive manufacturing. Simplification, translation, adaptation and redesign are all the essential parts of additive manufacturing methods like 3D printing. CADfix additive manufacturing and 3D printing tools can form STL file, extremely perfect slice as well as perform a part scan-to-source model comparison and component placement.
STL Files: The users can keep complete control over generating STL file with CADfix. Choose minimum settings controls chord variation from the original CAD model to create a compact STL file for fast viewing and packaging. Choose superior quality STL output to make an analysis style equilateral triangle mesh where the user can manage facet length, turn angle and growth rate.
Users will be able to import faceted model representations in other formats from other CAD tools and sources, reverse-engineer those models into general CAD BREP models and then export an STL file. CADfix automate the process to part and cut regions in the model to generate the BREP CAD geometry and topology. Users can easily rectify these features, export the model to a CAD format for design study, or export the model to a CAE format for meshing analysis.
Morphing: The CAD model is also perfectly deformed to match displacements which may happen in CAE. CADfix creates authentic model geometry to be exported back to CAD as a model or back to CAE for making analysis again. Engineers apply CAE analysis to decide the deformed shape of a model under load, transform the deformed model to a CAD model, and then accomplish secondary CAE analysis on the deformed model.

Create Bill Of Materials, Tenders, Bids & Direct Orders Inside A BIM Project In Autodesk Revit With BIMsupply
BIMobject just declared the availability of BIMsupply, a cloud-based program that can be used to generate bill of materials, tenders, bids and direct orders effortlessly inside a BIM project in Autodesk Revit. It is possible to distribute the lists of products and materials through cloud with Building Product Manufacturers (BPMs) with the aim of obtaining pricing, quotes or placing direct orders.
It is the world's first ever O2O (Online to Offline) solution for BIM. It completely supports with Autodesk Revit, BIMobject Cloud and the newly released cloud platform Forge from Autodesk. Beside, all Revit contents which are already published on Autodesk Seek, will also be well-suited with BIMsupply, following a very small update.
BIMobject also declares BIMobject SpitFire, that refers to the back end and chargeable license system for the BPMs to facilitate business matching and business intelligence on projects, products and materials from the BIMsupply solution. BIMobject SpitFire facilitates the BPM's sales and support staff to be involved with a cloud-based BIM project environment in complete 3D spaces.
The information will be delivered in an uninterrupted format from BPM's digital products downloaded from bimobject.com, included and configured into the actual BIM project in a BIM software like Autodesk Revit, and then reverted to the bimsupply.com cloud in the form of bill of materials and a completely interactive 3D virtual space, delivered with properties and production information.
The first version of BIMsupply will launched for Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Revit project files. BIMobject is planning to support numerous BIM applications and formats in the near future.
