HyperCast Integration for BIM 360

From the Autodesk App Store:

HyperCast is the world's most advanced weather-based decision-making tool. It features ClimaCell's nowcasting engine, providing pinpoint weather prediction down to city-block-level granularity in real-time and at one minute intervals 0-6 hours in the future. The HyperCast data quality is unmatched in the weather industry, achieving up to 90% correlation with ground truth, as opposed to 50% correlation achieved by other sources.

The integration with Autodesk® BIM 360® allows the user to import the project's location automatically into HyperCast app (assuming every project has a valid address).
For every project that has a valid address, HyperCast App will automatically create a pin so you can quickly find your project on top of the map and set alerts.

In addition, HyperCast features a new alerts tool (Weather Observer™). The alert system is designed to help you stay aware of the real-time and forecast weather events which affect you the most. The user can set thresholds for specific weather phenomena (i.e., rain intensity, or snow accumulation), and notify your team member via SMS or email hours before the event will take place. You can set the alerts, for specific pin locations, or for polygons.

HyperCast is featured as a web-based dashboard and is best compatible with Google Chrome browser.

BIMcollab BCF Manager for Autodesk Navisworks v4.0

From the Autodesk App Store:

About This Version

Version 4.0, 11/17/2017

The new Navisworks add-on offers a much better visual display of issues by their snapshots. With three possible snapshot-sizes and resizable panel-width users can choose how to use the available screen size. Also the issue history with comments is visually enhanced with their linked snapshots.

Extended filtering options
You can now filter issues on all properties. Especially when working in large projects with lots of issues it is much easier to keep an overview and find the issues to work on.

The way issues are created from clash detective or saved viewpoints is improved. It now supports workflows where users have their own model-coloring for disciplines or classifications. When the use of colors is switched off, model-colors are not reset when creating issues nor when zoom to issues.

List of new features
  • Issue list available as small, medium or large tile view.
  • Comment history visually enhanced with snapshots.
  • Issue-filter extended with all properties.
  • More clear user interface for usage of colors.
  • Updated logo’s and toolbar icons.

onTarget and Autodesk® BIM360® integration enables users to easily and efficiently draw upon 3D BIM data and consolidates the information across various teams, systems, and processes. The Forge platform is used to extract and translate the design data from the original file, so that dispersed teams in the construction process can collaborate in real time, track and update project progress with just a swipe.

Bottlenecks and issues can be immediately solved empowered by the real-time navigation in the model and access to right information about quality and quantity at the right time. for BIM 360 – Photo and Video Management Platform

From the Autodesk App Store:

If you’ve ever felt like the photos and videos in your company are getting out of control, you’re not alone. Based on input from builders like you, we’ve built a photo and video management platform designed for the needs of the AEC industry. One of our core features – “SmartTagging” – uses artificial intelligence to automatically tag content based on voice and image recognition. Set up the BIM 360 Docs integration in 90 seconds or less, and start analyzing your photos and videos using the SmartTagging engine right from BIM 360 Docs.

How it works: All photo and video content is pushed from BIM 360 Docs into for machine learning based analysis. Create one spot for all critical photo and video content for one and many projects., Inc. focuses on solving the management, collaboration, search and analysis challenges associated with industrial videos and photos. Its SmartTag Engine uses machine learning to support voice and image recognition to detect images in a video or photo and then automatically tag it according to defined terms. The platform saves significant time for teams, improves client communication, tackles the challenge of enterprise-wide media management, and provides a photo and/or video “insurance policy” that allows for easy retrieval of key imagery.
