MODEL CHECKING FOR QUALITY.
Solibri Model Checker is a BIM quality assurance software solution that analyses Building Information Models and architectural and engineering designs for integrity, quality and physical safety. In addition, Solibri Model Checker includes functionality for information take-out, analysing and extracting the information available in BIM models.
Solibri Model Checker targets zero design errors, producing cost savings in construction projects, and in more effective modeling and quality assurance. With a single mouse click, the system analyses the building information model and reveals potential flaws and weaknesses in the design, highlights the clashing components and checks that the model complies with BIM requirements and organisation’s best practices.
Check out the features and learn more about the interoperability between Solibri Model Checker and Archicad.
“The use of Solibri has provided us with a great platform to improve collaboration and coordination with building services and structural engineers.”
– Phillip Kempster, Senior Architectural Technician, Chow:Hill
The software that has revolutionised how we design, construct and maintain buildings.
Solibri Model Checker™ is an ‘out of the box’ software solution (Patent Pending) that analyses Building Information Models for integrity, quality and physical safety. The system offers easy-to-use visualisation with an intuitive walk-in functionality. With a single mouse click, the system X-rays the building model and reveals potential flaws and weaknesses in the design, highlights the clashing components and checks that the model complies with the building codes and organisation’s best practices.
SOLIBRI MODEL CHECKER
Solibri Model Checker is the Quality Assurance solution for BIM validation, compliance control, design review, analysis and code checking.
Solibri Model Checker™ adds value throughout the life cycle of the building.
It is being extensively used by a growing number of building owner and users, construction companies, architects and engineering firms. Solibri Model Checker™ is a valuable tool for:
- Building owners checking designs against program requirements
- Architects and Engineers delivering cost-effectively high quality 3D building information models
- Construction companies obtaining reliable and up-to-date cost estimates
- Facilities Management FM operations for checking material life-cycle and maintainability
INTEROPERABILITY BETWEEN SOLIBRI MODEL CHECKER AND Archicad
The Solibri Model Checker link for Archicad is an add-on which creates SMC menu. Thus, Archicad and Solibri Model Checker are directly integrated. Solibri Model Checker link for Archicad works via bi-directional connection with Archicad, making interoperability and quality control very efficient. In practice, the most effective way is to incorporate quality assurance into the design and modeling work flow. This yields the best results.
Because the model can be very easily checked with Solibri Model Checker, quality assurance also gives direct feedback on the quality of the model and expertise of the modeler enabling learning. This way, Solibri Model Checker is also a learning tool enabling organisations to create competencies in BIM. The model is transferred from Archicad to Solibri Model Checker with one click using SMC menu command “Export to SMC”. There are no extra steps or conversions. One click does it all.
Solibri Model Checker helps you find and visualise issues and problems before and during construction.
SECOND GENERATION CLASS DETECTION
Automatically analyse and group clashes according to severity. Find relevant problems quickly and easily. Investigate the quality of your BIM files.
Prevent issues in advance. Use SMC and its logical reasoning rules to search for components and materials missing from the model.
VERIFY MATCHING ELEMENTS IN ARCHITECTURAL & STRUCTURAL DESIGNS
Use SMC to locate flaws and exceptions in models made by different design teams. Avoid expensive rework by knowing both models match.
MANAGING CHANGE ORDERS OR DESIGN VERSIONS
Manage and track changes between two design versions of the same model. Save time with easy visualisation and verification of model changes.
INSTANT BIM DATA MINING
Be assured on the quality of information in BIM designs. Then use SMC for easy and instant information takeoff. Use multiple report templates that best suit your user role or create one yourself. Measure spaces and materials on the fly and share with others.

OPEN BIM is a universal approach to the collaborative design, realisation, and operation of buildings based on open standards and workflows. OPEN BIM is an initiative of several leading software vendors using the open buildingSMART Data Model.
OPEN BIM PROGRAM
The OPEN BIM Program is a marketing campaign initiated by GRAPHISOFT®, Tekla® and others to encourage and facilitate the globally coordinated promotion of the OPEN BIM concept throughout the AEC industry, with aligned communication and common branding available to program participants.
OPEN BIM Certification is a technical certification system to help AEC software vendors improve, test and certify their data connections to work seamlessly with other OPEN BIM solutions.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
OPEN BIM supports a transparent, open workflow, allowing project members to participate regardless of the software tools they use.
OPEN BIM creates a common language for widely referenced processes, allowing industry and government to procure projects with transparent commercial engagement, comparable service evaluation and assured data quality.
OPEN BIM provides enduring project data for use throughout the asset life–cycle, avoiding multiple input of the same data and consequential errors.
Small and large (platform) software vendors can participate and compete on system independent, ‘best of breed’ solutions.
OPEN BIM energises the online product supply side with more exact user demand searches and delivers the product data directly into the BIM.
Thanks to recent technological developments, professionals in building design and development increasingly rely on integrated architectural and engineering workflows. Using the IFC standard as a common language, architects and HVAC engineers can share and coordinate their projects, using the work of other disciplines as a reference.
Increasingly, new developments in Archicad emphasise effective collaboration between architects and structural engineers. This collaboration requires reliable methods for sharing and storing building model information, design solutions and proposals; it also requires a way to manage all the changes made to the building model by any of the participants, while also minimizing the possibility for human error.
Archicad supports all major model and data exchange formats and some specialised formats, including intelligent 3D modeling, universal 2D drawing, documentation and image formats.
