Building Information Model Extended Markup Language (BIMXML)


BIMXML describes building data (sites, buildings, floors, spaces, and equipment and their attributes) in a simplified spatial building model (extruded shapes and spaces) for BIM collaboration.

The XML Schema was developed as an alternative to full scale IFC models to simplify data exchanges between various AEC applications and to connect Building Information Models through Web Services.

It is currently used by the Onuma System (Onuma, Inc.), DDS Viewer (Data Design System), vROC, Tokmo, BIM Connect, and various Plugins for CAD Applications (Revit, SketchUp, ArchiCAD).
