BIM Road Markings

18-11-2018

Over the last years we have seen a growing need for Road Marking software that can deliver in a BIM format (BIM is the process of adding data to assets for use when handed over to maintenance). Line Design Pro UK road marking software is up for that task. Transoft’s traffic management software delivers intelligent road markings and traffic calming measures in both 2D and 3D. It comes with automatic quantification and can be integrated in Civil3D.

The standard BIM format in the Engineering industry for the collaboration of data rich 3D models in design projects is called Industry Federation Class or IFC by BuildingSMART. Line Design Pro is a level 2 BIM product, road markings can be easily exported to .ifc format with a single button press, ready for importing into BIM Collaboration software such as Navisworks, BIMXtra or Clearbox for use in clash checks.

Road marking designs can also be exported to GIS (ESRI) format. This means that the whole design can be exported as .shp files complete with asset data and spatial information for accurate Geo-positioning.
