Import/Export in the IFC format for sharing on collaborative platforms
EdiLus can import and export structural models in the IFC standard format. IFC is the "common" file format, an information model, which allows design team members (architectural, structural, plant engineering, etc.) to exchange their BIM models between each other regardless of the software they use. EdiLus's IFC 2x3 import and export features are both IFC Coordination View 2.0 certified by buildingSMART International.
With EdiLus you can, for example, import the digital model of the architectural project created with an architectural BIM design software (for example: Edificius, Revit, Allplan, ArchiCAD, VectorWorks, etc.) and continue to work on the structural design and analysis aspects in 3D in accordance with the design requirements as established by other design team disciplines.
Integration in usBIM.platform, the BIM collaboration platform
EdiLus integrates with a CDE collaborative platform usBIM.platform, to finally fulfil the idea of a unitary and shared design workflow.
Download the BIM models in the IFC format of architectural or plant projects from the cloud and proceed with advanced 3D modelling of the structure in a collaborative workflow; export the BIM model in the IFC format together with construction documents and calculation results back to the cloud choosing which folder to save the files setting the relevant file access permission levels for each authorized user.
The BIM collaboration platform allows all team members to have an open and continuous dialogue with each of the stakeholders involved in the construction during its life cycle as designers, construction companies, maintenance companies, plant and technical installation companies, customers, etc.
Seamless integration with Edificius
Thanks to the integration with the Edificius BIM software, it is possible to make Architecture designs and Structures interact, with the advantage of obtaining a simplified and rapid input of the structure (thanks to object recognition within the model) and a convergence of structural and design details.

But there are many advantages: optimization of operatiing flows, time, costs, design errors, unwanted duplications and interferences are nearly reduced to zero and, above all, high integration between the design phase and the execution phase.
