Usage of data dictionary

Is anybody using the data dictionary in a real-world usecase? Or has implemented in their tool some way to connect to the data dictionary?

I am aware of an implementation in BIMSync. Any others?

Oh, also the bSDD API lookup links are broken in the latest IFC 4.2 online spec.

I am interested too.

Not sure if that helps but in the Infrastructure Extensions Deployment: Project Planning (Workshop 2) the implementation you are talking about has been shown in a video and uploaded here along with the other documents of the workshop.

I am interested too.

@Sigve ping.

An email was sent to sigve@buildingsmart.no and bsdd_service_support@catenda.no with no reply.

Who is the best person to contact?

Hi Dion, sorry you haven’t got a reply. I’m not working for buildingSMART anymore, so didn’t get that email.

Another company that are using bSDD in their software is coBuilder.

@chiholau or @berlotti could help you out if you have questions regarding bSDD.

bSI with other partners like GS1, and others like IBM and Oracle, and some others like coBuilder work on PDT which it seems that PDT/PDV will be an alternative for bSDD

As I mentioned in another post, almost 70-80% of IFC is related to IfcElement/IfcProduct and its presentation and representation

Kind of. DDS-CAD software use it, but not online.
