In order to synchronise information from the BIM model to Bimeye and back, an addin / client needs to be installed in the design tool used for the design of the person(s) to be responsible for the model and database being updated with current information.
In Archicad and Revit, Bimeye creates a BIMEYE ID which is the connection between the data in Bimeye and the objects in the model. Therefore, it is important to make the connection with Bimeye to the production model and not a copy of the same.
As for the connection to Simple Bim and IFC files, it is IFC-GUID that is used there and therefore you can update with copies as long as IFC-GUID is kept from exporting design tools every time.
Supported Design tools and versions:
Autodesk Revit 2019, 2020, 2021
Graphisoft Archicad 22, 23, 24
Simplebim 8 (handles IFC together with Bimeye)
The Bimeye Design Tool Client is a native Windows application and cannot run directly on Mac OS X.
