Tiempo estimado de lectura: 2 minutos

We released OpenProject BIM 10.6. The new release contains improvements for BIM project management for the building industry, especially with improved features for BCF Management.

Overview of new features

Improved BCF XML Import

The import of BCF XML files will check the version to be 2.1 before importing. If it’s an older version the import will not start to avoid errors.

Maximum size for IFC files increased

The maximum size for IFC files has been increased to 500 MB.

Improved permissions for BCF Management

We introduced a separate permission for deleting BCF issues.

What is on the Roadmap?

We continuously develop new features for the OpenProject BIM Edition:

Plugins into common BIM tools

Plug-ins into the common BIM tools (such as ARCHICAD, Navisworks, Solibri etc.) make the exchange of BCF issues from the central BCF management system even faster, easier and more transparent. The next step on the roadmap is an integration with Revit.
