DigiPara Liftdesigner BIM Features
Level of Information (LOI)
LOI information can easily be added by chosing from predefined property sets like COBie and IFC4.
Each relevant component, like doors and hall buttons, has a dedicated set of BIM properties to fill. Many of the property values are preset: For example values like door width and door height are automatically filled in.
Level of Development (LOD)
DigiPara Liftdesigner comes with a predefined configuration for each typical LOD value 100,200,300,350,400 and 500.
Moreover there is a LOD MAX: In fact this is no real BIM level, but it helps DigiPara users to export the “maximum” geometrical detailed model where required, e.g. for visualization.
LDBIM Export for Autodesk® Revit®
The DigiPara LDBIM file format makes sure that all important elevator components become individual families in Revit. The LDBIM format has been improved in Version 2020 and supports the new BIM properties. As a result this makes sure that the architect can build schedules about the elevator products.
The architect needs the newest free DigiPara Elevatorarchitect update, to support the new file enhancements.
The architect relies on your BIM model. Very important is the location of wall openings: IFC 4 and LDBIM files contain all required wall openings and pockets of the elevator.
These might be door openings, pockets for hall buttons or ventilation openings, etc.
For example, this feature allows the architect to safely integrate openings into the building design.
