Tridify Convert - Cloud based BIM conversion and seamless workflow to Unity application using automated tools Tridify Convert is a 2-part service that allows you to take 3D BIM & CAD models to Unity with BIM data attached! The first part is a Tridify Convert conversion web service where you if upload your 3D BIM file in an IFC format, we automatically convert it to a Collada (DAE) format and you get a UV mapped and optimised model with automatic polygon reduction for hidden face and database access to all the BIM data. This takes minutes not hours! The second part is our Tridify BIM Tools, Unity Editor plugin. Now that you can connect all 3D objects to the original BIM data, you can use an advanced search to group objects with specific data such as a construction phase or a building’s external structures. There’s material mapping that can be saved and used for multiple projects, and automatic lighting and light probe generation in a few simple steps. You can register for the Tridify Convert at https://convert.tridify.com/#/register?utm_source=assetstore&utm_medium=forum Once you have an account you can upload your models and get the Tridify BIMTools from the Asset Store: https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/tools/utilities/Tridify-BIM-Tools-125779 About input IFC: The IFC 2x3 is the open source ASCII format that transports 3D BIM information between programs; it can be be exported from almost any 3D BIM and 3D CAD program. The IFC file size depends on two things: the amount of 3D geometry data and the data attached to different elements of the model. The attached data can be information about the who is the manufacturer of the element to what is the purpose of the element. For example, the element is a door and it is going to be installed on phase x of the construction. This is the data that you can use in Unity. That is also the data that we use to provide you the functionalities in Tridify IFC Tools. Conversion Web Service: Just drag and drop your files to verify the suitability for conversion. Conversion Web Service: Start your conversion – depending on your file size, this can only take minutes You have different conversion options which can either be used separately or combined: - Convert by IFC type: Creates separate files for different object types. For example, doors, floors, windows, etc. - Covert by storey: Building will be separated to different files by storey. Tridify BIMTools: Import your converted models in Unity – with all the BIM data available, instead of searching game objects, you can now search IFC data types, attributes or properties! IFC data types can be for example door, floor, window, bolt, etc. IFC properties can consist of any data inserted into the original model; for example, when the related object was attached to the model, who actioned this, or whether the object is part of the external structure of the building. Tridify BIMTools: Access individual types in separate storeys – automatically divided into a hierarchy to make it fast to search and less prone to errors. Tridify BIMTools: Material mapper to map BIM materials to Unity materials – the mapping can be saved and used for all your projects.
