BIM Queries

Query models with our query language and export the data to JSON, CSV or Excel. You can also quickly visualize the results of queries in the 2D and 3D viewer components (link). Results of queries can also be downloaded as IFC or glTF.

Export provides many methods of exporting your models to other (open) formats.


You can always download the original IFC file. One of the advantages of OpenBIM is that you are never locked-in! In addition to that can export the results of BIM Queries to IFC as well.

2D SVG (scalable vector graphics) can be exported from your BIM models.


Generate PDF files from your BIM models with vector graphics.


Results of Queries can be returned in many formats, allowing any data that is stored in to be extracted to other databases (ETL).

Integration is typically deployed in complex environments, so integration is key.

Model Checking

Different types of model checking are provided. Model checks are highly configurable to allow for context-specific rules.


BIM Base was involved in the development of the buildingSMART IDS standard. implements version 0.9.

Clash Detection

Check for clashes in multiple models, you decide which objects should be tested by providing the Queries.
