Automatically harmonize the Architect's BIM for Building Performance Simulations
Top companies optimize their workflows with abstractBIM
Building simulation is a very helpful tool for Anex in dimensioning and optimizing building services equipment. We see that more and more architects can provide BIM models and we are committed to a better information exchange through modeling. For this reason, we have optimized the BIM2SIM process, where Abstract has helped us to improve the workflow.

You are a true wizard. It is the first time that I was able to import a complex IFC model into IDA ICE without any problems. I am thrilled and can recommend abstractBIM without reservation.
I had great expectations from abstractBIM and I was not disappointed. The program takes a lot of extra manual work from us and does it in a very short time. Nevertheless, I had to realize that even with abstractBIM a very bad and faulty architectural model does not get better. Thanks to Simon's great support, we were still able to overcome this challenge.
Abstract's adaptation algorithm closes the existing gap in the consistent use of BIM models for simulation purposes.
This simplifies the simulation of large and complex projects many times over. You also become more flexible and faster in the simulation, as you can add or remove geometries (zones) with just a few mouse clicks.
The use of abstractBIM was the "enabler" to be able to evaluate competition entries from different architects with our "Early Stage Design" tool. This allowed us to benchmark the projects regarding return on investment, construction costs, comfort, energy consumption, and daylight use within a few days. A solid basis for decision-making for the building owner - with minimal manual effort! That is digital process intelligence.
We are currently testing abstractBIM for the model import into the Lesosai tool 2022 for calculations according to SIA382/2 / MB2044.
This allowed us to import a large complex project for the first time.
Room geometries, windows, orientation, etc. were transferred correctly. Accordingly, our effort is reduced since we do not have to enter everything manually from scratch. Thus, we see great potential in the use of abstractBIM. We are also pleased with the uncomplicated interaction with the abstract team.

Introducing the abstractBIM
abstractBIM is the automatically harmonized Architect's BIM. It has a low level of geometry but a high level of data consistency.
Why do you need the abstractBIM
The effort to clean up inconsistent BIMs prevents the efficient automation of processes based on BIM.
Eliminate model preperation time and get the abstractBIM in three minutes.
Focus again on optimizing the project with Building Performance Simulations. The computer takes care about BIM data quality.
Trust the data
Automatically generated means automatically consistent. No human-induced data mistakes.
Lower entry barrier to BIM
The model requirements to generate the abstractBIM are so low, every architect can fulfill them.
Simulated buildings are more comfortable, cheaper and more sustainable.
Create new services
Being able to do things that took days in minutes, gives you the opportunity to create new scaleable business models.
What can you do with the abstractBIM
Use the architect's BIM in your preferred software, without manually preprocessing or redoing the models.
How do you get the abstractBIM
It's just three steps for you - no complicated BIM tools with a steep learning curve required.
Upload the Model
You only need an architectural IFC file with modeled Spaces
Take a 5 minutes break
Take a break and we automatically generate the abstractBIM
Download the abstractBIM
The abstractBIM can be an IFC, CSV, or JSON file
Save time by eliminating manual labor
When purchasing BIM modeling tools you pay for the right to use the software, but you have to do the work yourself. With abstract, the computer does the job automatically for you.
