 IFC-Road Working Group

APLITOP formalized its commitment in the working group to define the new IFC-Road format for the exchange of BIM road project data at the Standards Summit in Barcelona organized by buildingSMART International. The document defines the scope of collaboration for this project, involving public and private entities from Korea, Germany, France, Sweden, Finland and China.

This participation is part of the activities of the ROADBIM project, a R&D initiative whose general objective is to achieve more efficient development of road construction projects throughout their lifecycles through the application of BIM in information management processes.

 Exchange alignments with IFC Alignment

At this conference, we also realized the first live demonstration of a commercial application capable of importing and exporting files in the IFC Alignment format. This format allows the exchange of data from surveying surfaces and alignments in plan and elevation through an extension of the IFC standard, which facilitates the exchange of BIM data with open and independent formats.

Now you can easily import points and breaklines from a survey done with Magnet Field and export a network or segment of MDT in order to trace it in situ.

Importing surveys

To import into MDT a survey done with Magnet Field of Topcon, we must first export the points, lines and areas of the project in LandXML format with the application wizard included.

Then within MDT, you just need to run the import command of the LandXML format in the Utilities menu, selecting all components.

See technical note and video in the following links:

Export Segments

To export a road or a route segment developed with Topcon Magnet, you first need to execute the command to export to LandXML from the Utilities menu by selecting the segment file and choosing Topcon Magnet 3.0 export mode or higher.

In Magnet Field, we must use the wizard to exchange data from the file, selecting all its components which, when completed, will allow us to trace the road.
