||A BIM Based Collaboration Platform for Data Transmitting in Building Design
||Zhuohua Huang and Aizhu Ren
||BIM (Building Information Modelling) has gradually been accepted and applied by the Chinese engineers. In the meantime, the BIM software which suits the Chinese design process and satisfies the Chinese design codes have not been developed sufficiently. To meet the requirements of BIM based collaboration platform for fluent data transmitting in building design process which suits the Chinese building design practice, this paper presents the solutions on the development of a BIM based collaboration platform. 4-layer architecture is employed to make the function of each part of the collaboration platform clearer; a 3D space for BIM models with version information is created to record the model history and allow engineers to check the version difference; the authorization and certification managing algorithms are designed to ensure an ordered work status on the collaboration platform; the lock-switches and dividing of work sets are developed to solve the object conflict problems; message sending and receiving mechanism are formulated to get fluent communications among the users who are working on the same building project. A protocol of the collaboration platform has been developed on these solutions and shows the study results.
