Incluí aqui somente software que tem suporte ao formato IFC (tanto leitura como gravação). Sem isso, acho que concordamos que não podemos chamar algo de BIM. Também retirei as soluções restritas a um certo tipo de construção (como DDS-CAD). As aplicações abaixo são as... FreeCAD and BIM FAQ http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=76 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=76 Sun, 28 Jun 2015 18:34:40 -0300 A couple of FreeCAD architecture/BIM related questions that I get often: Is FreeCAD ready enough to do serious BIM work? This is a very complex question, and the answer could be yes or no, depending on what's important to you. It of course also depends on what is BIM for you, because clearly enough, there isn't a universal... My FreeCAD talk at FOSDEM 2015 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=37 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=37 Sat, 21 Mar 2015 22:46:06 -0300 This is a video recording of the talk I did at FOSDEM this year. Enjoy! The pdf slides are here. Enjoy! FreeCAD talk at FOSDEM 2015 from Yorik van Havre on Vimeo Old projects, new images http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=26 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=26 Mon, 16 Feb 2015 21:35:20 -0200 We use to make 3D images of old projects of some of our clients, to give their websites a bit of a refresh, and we don't do it for ourselves? No sir, no more! Here is a bit of revamp on two oldies but goodies of our projects, Casa GL and the PACE ONG. ... FreeCAD, Architecture and future http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=22 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=22 Tue, 10 Feb 2015 14:15:15 -0200 There is quite some time I didn't write here about FreeCAD and the development of the Architecture module. This doesn't mean it has stopped, but rather that I have temporarily been busy with another project: The Path module, plus there has been my FOSDEM talk, and finally we're on the verge of releasing version 0.15... About panels and blocks - new elements for FreeCAD http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=156 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=156 Sat, 13 Sep 2014 16:57:01 -0300 I've more or less recently been working on two new features for the Architecture workbench of FreeCAD: Panels and furniture. None of these is in what we could call a finished state, but I thought it would be interesting to share some of the process here. Panels are a new type of object, that inherits all... Ideal kitchen? http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=150 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=150 Sat, 23 Aug 2014 18:44:47 -0300 I'm always quite fascinated by medieval-like kitchens, I'd like to have one for myself one day... But until the moment one is rich enough to buy an old medieval farm-castle in France, one must stick with dreaming. I also happened to need a new background for the Inventriode receitas. So (after I saw this amazing... DXF export of FreeCAD Drawing pages http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=125 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=125 Fri, 15 Aug 2014 22:43:54 -0300 I just upgraded the code that exports Drawing pages in FreeCAD, and it works now much better, and much more the way you would expect: Mount your page fully in FreeCAD, then export it to DXF or DWG with the press of a button. Before, doing this would export the SVG code from the Drawing page,... ProjectPier http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=117 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=117 Wed, 13 Aug 2014 21:24:35 -0300 I should really write more about all the little open-source tools we use everyday here in our architecture studio. There are your usual CAD / BIM / 3D applications, of course, that you know a bit of if you follow this blog, but one of the tools that really helps us a lot in our... A bit of FreeCAD BIM work http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=116 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=116 Sat, 09 Aug 2014 02:50:24 -0300 This afternoon I did some BIM work in FreeCAD for a house project I'm doing with Ryan. We're using this as a test platform for IFC roundtripping between Revit and FreeCAD. So far the results are mixed, lots of information get lost on the way obviously, but on the other hand I'm secretly pretty happy... FreeCAD Spaces http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=110 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=110 Tue, 05 Aug 2014 19:36:30 -0300 I just finished to give a bit of polish to the Arch Space tool of FreeCAD. Until now it was a barely geometric entity, that represents a closed space. You can define it buy building it from an existing solid shape, or from selected boundaries (walls, floors, whatever). Now I added a bit of visual goodness.... Prefeitura de Belo Horizonte http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=106 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=106 Tue, 29 Jul 2014 01:29:47 -0300 This is a project we did for a href=http://portalpbh.pbh.gov.br/pbh/ecp/comunidade.do?app=concursocentroadministrativo>competition for the new city hall of Belo Horizonte (Brazil). It didn't win (The link shows the winning entries), but we are pretty happy about the project anyway. The full presentation boards are at the bottom of this article, as well as the blender model. Below is... FreeCAD release 0.14 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=80 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=80 Mon, 21 Jul 2014 22:07:19 -0300 This is certainly a bit overdue, since the official launch already happened more than two weeks ago, but at last,here it goes: The 0.14 version of FreeCAD has been released! It happened a long, long time after 0.13, about one year and a half, but we're decided to not let that happen again next time,... Invert the colors of qcad3 icons http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=65 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=65 Wed, 09 Jul 2014 22:21:27 -0300 QCad is an open-source 2D CAD program I've already been kind of fond of. It runs on Windows, Mac and Linux, its version 2 has been the base of LibreCAD, and version 3, which is a couple of months old already, is a huge evolution after version 2. Their developers have always struggled between the... FreeCAD and IFC: sticking to standards http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=40 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=40 Tue, 29 Apr 2014 01:57:03 -0300 After my last post about IFC support in FreeCAD, I worked a bit further in order to make the test house behave better when imported into other IFC-capable applications. This is basically the first steps of FreeCAD into the big boys playground. I already leaned a few tricks on the way, that are worth sharing... IFC support in FreeCAD http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=37 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=37 Tue, 15 Apr 2014 16:46:35 -0300 We have recently reached a very important point with the Architecture module of FreeCAD: Import and export of IFC files. The support to IFC is not fully compliant yet, but I believe it is stable enough so I can talk about it here. The IFC format is a very important foundation of any decent BIM workflow.... FreeCAD Architecture tutorial http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=27 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=27 Fri, 14 Mar 2014 16:50:58 -0300 This is a copy of an href="http://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/index.php?title=Arch_tutorial">original article I wrote on the href="http://www.freecadweb.org">FreeCAD wiki, about doing BIM modeling with FreeCAD,that I copied it here for archiving purposes. I advise you to read the original article, the quality is much better. Introduction This tutorial aims at giving you the basics to work with the Arch Workbench. I will... Quantity survey in FreeCAD http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=24 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=24 Tue, 11 Feb 2014 18:26:53 -0200 Today a friend quantity surveyor gave me this idea, that resulted in this quickly made but, I think, fast and useful tool, now available from the Arch workbench: The idea is simple: you press the tool, then you pick edges, faces or whole objects (by double-clicking them). Each time, a label is added, a line is... Reuso dos recuos http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=23 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=23 Tue, 11 Feb 2014 01:12:02 -0200 Uma dessas coisas pssimas que fazem as construtoras de prdios de alto padro, quando conseguem juntar vrios terrenos, descartar as frentes de rua que no so a entrada principal. Resultado, como aqui (rua Augusta, a altura do n 852, fundo de um prdio na rua Bela Cintra n 201), temos uma fachada de fundos,... IFC browser in FreeCAD http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=20 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=20 Fri, 07 Feb 2014 13:10:47 -0200 A little addition for FreeCAD, is this IFC browser (Find it under the Arch->Utilities menu). It simply allows you to read the contents of an IFC file in an easier way than a text browser. This is above all useful for testing purposes, when you want to chack if some object was imported or exported...
