Rhino.Inside® brings the power of Rhino to BricsCAD® BIM V20

Bricsys®, a Hexagon company, has partnered with Robert McNeel & Associates of Seattle, Washington, to leverage their Rhino.Inside® initiative. Bricsys is using Rhino.Inside® to bring the full power of the Rhinoceros NURBS modeler to BricsCAD® BIM V20.

Rhino integration enables a new workflow that fills the gap between early-stage conceptual design and Building Information Modeling. Using Rhino’s built-in Grasshopper visual programming language, users can create parametric concept models inside of BricsCAD® BIM.

“Algorithmic modeling tools are often used in the conceptual design phase before BIM tools are involved in the design process. The BricsCAD – Grasshopper connection bridges this gap. Then, using the A.I. functionality in BricsCAD BIM, it’s simple to convert the Rhino model into a full BIM in just a few seconds,” commented Tiemen Strobbe, BIM Product Owner at Bricsys®.

Once a design concept is approved, the Rhino model can be “baked” in BricsCAD® BIM, generating native BricsCAD® geometry. This geometry can be converted into a full BIM model, including automatic classification of model elements, using BIMIFY, and the automatic attachment of compositions using the AUTOMATCH tool.
