May 2, 2016 | WiseBIM converts 2D drawings into 3D drawings in minutes

Wise BIMList, a CEA Tech institute, recently developed software, WiseBIM, that generates 3D building drawings from 2D paper drawings in just a few minutes.

WiseBIM rapidly generates 3D drawings from BIM (Building Information Model) files for real-estate sales (virtual tours), emergency response preparation, thermal renovation projects, and property management.

Users simply upload a scan of their 2D drawings or upload an existing 2D drawing file to WiseBIM, which automatically extracts the information required to identify the 3D geometrical elements of the building, detect potential errors, and recommend corrections. The 3D plan is then produced in .ifc format, a standard file format compatible with BIM software.

Manual conversion of drawings from 2D to 3D is time consuming. With WiseBIM, conversion is fast, simple, and cost-effective. In addition, there is no need to go to the building site, even for large numbers of drawings.

This novel approach will be of interest to businesses in the construction industry as well as to building end-users.
