Federation of models | usBIM.clash | ACCA software

How to run a clash detection of BIM models created by different designers and software vendors

usBIM.clash is the clash detection BIM software on federated BIM models certified by buildingSMART international®.

It doesn't matter which design software you or your design and construction team use.

With usBIM.clash:

  • open and view BIM models or objects in the IFC standard format and also in many other 3D formats (.SKP, .DWG, .3DS, etc.)
  • perform BIM clash detection tasks on projects created with Edificius®, Revit®, ArchiCAD®, Allplan®, Tekla®, VectorWorks®, AutoCAD®, SketchUp®, 3D Studio Max® and many others.

Thanks to the BIM clash detection functions, you can start from a single federated model that integrates the different design aspects (architectural, structural, plant engineering, MEP clash detection, etc.).

Detect interferences automatically | usBIM.clash | ACCA software

Hard clash or soft clash? You choose the most suitable type of clash detection to perform on your BIM models

From the federated model, identifying clashes is an easy task with entities such as:

  • elements of separate models that occupy the same space (hard clash), for example a pipe duct that crosses a beam;
  • elements with incompatible parameters (clearance clash), such as two elements that are too close to each other for assembly or maintenance purposes.

Just define simple ruleset parameters (type of comparison, type of collision, tolerance values) to automatically check for interferences based on the required analysis type (hard clash, clearence clash, etc.) and the degree of precision that you want to get.

Interference check process | usBIM.clash | ACCA software

IFC entity selection groups and filters help you to set up powerful clash detection rulesets available whenever you want

usBIM.clash allows you to choose BIM models and the elements to be analysed with maximum flexibility.

You can select objects directly on the model (visually and graphically) or use advanced features such as "Selection Groups" and "Selection Filters" which allow you to specify the files and entities on which to perform conflict analysis.

Advanced features such as "Selection Groups" and "Selection Filters" allow you to specify the entities upon which to perform a geometry conflict analysis.

The chosen analysis criteria can be stored as a template and therefore used as a meta-process analysis that can be repeated each time on the updated models.

The Clash detection results are dynamically updated not only at every model change, or models that have already been analyzed, but also in case new BIM models are added.

Life Cycle Management of each collision | usBIM.clash | ACCA software

How to see clash Detections with clear and comprehensive reports

usBIM.clash provides an overall and concise picture of the entire set of conflicts, their state together with an overall view of the design phase evolution.

Detected clashes and interferences (Issues) are organized in an accurate but easy to read clash report with a matrix structure in which you can easily identify:

  • objects that collide
  • the type of collision found
  • the state of the conflict (date of verification, resolution, etc.)

Thanks to the dynamic link between Issues and BIM, you can immediately identify and visualize interfering objects directly in the model.

By clicking on the collision, usBIM.clash automatically brings you back to the IFC model entities involved and highlights the collision points.

Deal with Clash detection with BCF, PDF, XLS and resolve conflicts dynamically and collaboratively

With usBIM.clash, conflicts in the design process are managed collaboratively between the different designers involved.

Enrich individual issues with notes, comments and screenshots of conflicting objects and optimize the BIM clash detection procedure.

You can export the BIM clash detection report:

  • in the standard BCF (BIM Collaboration Format) of buildingSMART international®, in line with the IFC-Open BIM philosophy
  • in many other standard operating formats: PDFXML, HTML, CSV, XLSX.

Using the BCF standard, the individual BIM designer can view each issue, the elements affected by the interferences and any other useful information necessary to solve the problem in their BIM application.

Integrate clash detection with the entire construction process

The entire collaboration process can be managed by integrating usBIM.clash with the usBIM BIM management system and the other BIM integration tools.

You can:

  • coordinate multidisciplinary project teams, professionals and companies located in different places and working with different software
  • engage in instant messaging sessions with advanced team working functions
  • organize online meetings and conference calls with work colleagues
  • Share BIM data, construction documents and 3D models in the cloud
