StruBIM Uploader

Incorporation of structural models to Open BIM projects Request more information about CYPE programs

StruBIM Uploader has been designed to incorporate structural models, generated by programs not included in the Open BIM workflow, into an Open BIM project stored on the platform.

StruBIM Uploader. Description



"StruBIM Uploader" is an application developed by CYPE, with which structural models can be incorporated into Open BIM projects that are located on the platform, and this way enabling a connection with visualisation, analysis and post-processing programs of other developers.

Compatible structural models

In its first version, "StruBIM Uploader" allows users to incorporate models, which have been generated in the following formats by structural design programs, into Open BIM projects, including their design results:

StruBIM Uploader. Compatible structural models

StruBIM Uploader. Compatible structural models

  • IFC produced with Advance Design®
  • "Advance Design®" is a registered trademark of GRAITEC Innovation SAS. When selecting this option, the program requests two files to be selected, an IFC file and another results file in TXT format, both generated from Advance Design®.

  • XML produced with ETABS®
  • ETABS® is a registered trademark of Computer & Structures Inc. Currently, the possibility of including XML produced with the versions ETABS 2016 and ETABS 18 has been implemented.
    "StruBIM Uploader" generates, based on the information contained in the ETABS® XML, the information required to design shear walls in "StruBIM Design Shear Walls", and also incorporates the XML into the Open BIM project. It can be imported in "StruBIM Design", "StruBIM Analysis" and "StruBIM Foundations".

  • Other applications
  • In the initial home panel of "StruBIM Uploader", other applications can be seen (whose connections have not yet been implemented), that users can select to request CYPE to include in a future version. In this way, the needs and preferences of users can be identified.

The selected structural model can be incorporated into a project on (new or existing), automatically generating files in GLTF format that can be viewed both on the platform as well as the rest of the applications integrated into the Open BIM workflow.


Open BIM workflow

"StruBIM Uploader" is integrated into the Open BIM workflow via the platform. The program currently exchanges the following information with the linked Open BIM project:

  • Imports
  • The data and results of a job from the selected application (Advance Design®, ETABS® etc.).

  • Exports
  • "StruBIM Uploader" exports to an Open BIM project on the platform the IFC file containing the necessary information on the imported structural model, so that it can be interpreted by other Open BIM applications and its 3D view (GLTF)can be generated.
