What is Tridify BIM conversion service?

Tridify BIM conversion service is a virtualisation cloud service that delivers automated end-to-end workflow for Unity developers, architects, visualisers and BIM modellers.

By taking your 3D BIM & CAD models to Unity via Tridify BIM conversion, you get automated lighting, automated materials, automated colliders and BIM data attached. The automation reduces errors and speeds up project delivery so that you can showcase stunning VR models for all kinds of scenarios easily!

To get started, we upload your BIM into Unity as fast and effectively as possible…

When you upload your 3D BIM file in an IFC format, we automatically convert it to a Collada (DAE) format and you’ll get a UV mapped and optimised model with automatic polygon reduction for hidden faces, and database access to all the BIM data when you take it into Unity.

Depending on the size of your model, this takes only minutes!


Tridify BIM Tools, Unity Editor

Now for the best part – with Tridify BIM Tools you can automate many of the standard functions. 

Through the conversion process, you can now connect all 3D objects to the original BIM data in Unity. This means you can use an advanced search to group objects with specific data such as a construction phase or a building’s external structure. Imagine, instead of hundreds of clicks to find 3000 windows in a large complex build, you can find and change elements in just a couple of steps!

There’s automatic material mapping that can be saved and used for multiple projects, and automatic lighting and light probe generation too. Your model can be ready for sharing in next to no time.


Don’t do it!

Converting architectural models to virtual models has previously been an uphill struggle and error-prone work. Tridify has developed an easy and fast workflow for Unity developers to use their preferred 3D modeling software, export to an IFC file format, and import BIM models and data to Unity Editor for all kinds of use cases, from simulation through to XR applications.

Architects typically have all the BIM data contained in their models, and historically whilst transfer to developers and modellers takes place, this isn’t seamless and easy…  


...Don’t do it the old way!

The idea behind Tridify BIM conversion service is not only to make the process less cumbersome, but to keep all the data connected to its geometry for easy manipulation through powerful search functions. We’ve selected an IFC format as the input because of its open standard and global use across most AEC tools like Autodesk Revit and ArchiCAD.

With no need for manual remodelling, the ability to locate and group objects in only a few clicks and some standard functions automated, you will reduce errors and free up time to be more creative!
