Open Design Alliance (ODA) makes Revit file SDK available for general licensing
Teigha BIM, a stand-alone Software Development Kit (SDK) from the ODA for working with Autodesk Revit files, is now available for general licensing. The aim of the BIM Kernel is to allow CAD software developers to build in Revit RVT and RFA read and write capabilities into their applications.
“We are very pleased to offer Teigha BIM licensing to the general public,” commented Neil Peterson, ODA President. “Through the end of last year, Teigha BIM was only available to our top-tier subscribers. But import and visualization are now ready for production use—so it’s the right time to offer this technology to a wider audience.”
Sergey Vishnevetsky, Development Director at ODA, added, “Feedback from early adopters has been quite positive. A number of our customers are already shipping importers and visualization solutions based on Teigha BIM.
“Our focus this year has shifted to parametric entity creation, a feature that is in high demand from users looking to streamline their automation processes. We expect rapid progress in this area in 2017, and interested parties can register on the Open Design website to receive real-time progress updates.”
Last year Bentley Systems told AEC Magazine that it is testing Revit (RVT) file read capabilities inside Bentley AECOsim Building Designer.
