Tech Soft 3D and Asite™ Announce cBIM™ Built with HOOPS® Software Development Toolkits

HOOPS Visualize and HOOPS Exchange power visualization and IFC import functionality within latest version of building information model tool.


Bend, OR, USA and London, UK – November 19, 2012 – Tech Soft 3D, established leader in engineering software development tools, and Asite, a collaborative cloud provider, announce that Tech Soft 3D’s HOOPS software development toolkits provide key visualization and data import capabilities for Asite cBIM.


cBIM centralizes information, knowledge and design in a collaborative online environment, allowing all stakeholders in a project to coordinate design in real-time from anywhere in the world. HOOPS Exchange enables cBIM to quickly and accurately visualize the popular IFC file format, creating a shared Building Information Model to coordinate design components before construction is even started. The Large Model Visualization (LMV) capability of HOOPS Visualize works within Asite to allow real-time 3D viewing of extremely large datasets. cBIM users are thus able to visualize their design within the context of the overall model, reducing the risk of onsite problems.


“Tech Soft 3D was able to work with our software-as-a-service model to help us provide an immersive 3D experience to our cBIM users,” says Tony Ryan, Asite CEO. “HOOPS Visualize and HOOPS Exchange had the functionality and reliability we needed to ensure the highest level of performance within cBIM.”


“We’re happy our technology is being used in an efficient, customer-centric way that emphasizes collaboration in engineering,” says Tech Soft 3D VP of SDK products, Gavin Bridgeman.
