BIMobject AB: BIMobject adds 3D-printing and VR formats to its content creation solution
BIMobject AB ("BIMobject") today announces that the 3D-printing format STL and the Virtual Reality-format FBX have been made available for BIMscript ® & LENA, a solution for creating digital building products. As of today, products created in BIMscript ® & LENA will automatically be available in these file formats, adding value and possibilities for manufacturers, developers, and designers.
The BIMobject® content creation solution BIMscript® & LENA is enhanced with two additional output file formats: the STL format optimised for 3D-printing, and the Virtual Reality format FBX. The two new file formats are generated automatically in the content development process, creating direct links to be used for 3D-printing and Virtual as well as Augmented Reality solutions. Existing content can be updated to include the formats.
The stereolithographic STL format is the basis for all 3D-printers and is integrated into BIMscript® & LENA as an additional file format. This means that scale models and prototypes of parametric BIM objects can be printed more easily from a single source, without any file conversion. This will in turn improve the workflow for designers, who use 3D-printers to create physical models for presentations to building owners and building developers.
"Our unique development solution has taken a huge step forward: The new file formats add value to the process without meaning extra work for content developers. For manufacturers, offering a downloadable scale model of the building or interior product for 3D-printing is a great way to support designers and engineers in their work", says Ben O'Donnell, Chief Technology Officer at BIMobject.
FBX is an adaptable file format that was originally developed for 3D-animation software. Integrated into BIMscript® & LENA, it allows users to access the created BIM objects directly from within a VR application such as BIMobject® VR and BIMobject® AR. The format thus offers manufacturers easier integration of their products into any VR solution, saving time and money, as well as maintaining an unbroken flow for all content creation. The content is made available to more designers for more types of possible use in the design, visualisation, user engagement, and sales processes.
"We already know that VR and AR are the next big thing, but the technology needs reliable product information and geometry. FBX turns it into a standard part of the process that can then easily be explored by solutions for real-time visualisation, online configurators, and walk-throughs in 3D. I think we'll see a surge in the number of BIMscript developers and manufacturers using the technology", says Ben O'Donnell.
BIMscript® & LENA consists of the scripting language BIMscript® and the plugin LENA, which let 3rd-party content developers and manufacturers create their own digital building products by importing native, mechanical CAD geometry and optimising it for BIM objects. Developers can generate parametric, native BIM objects in a number of popular formats for industry-leading BIM applications. These BIM objects are then hosted on the platform BIMobject® Cloud, which serves as a Single Source of Truth for its more than 500,000 professional registered users and over 1,000 represented brands.

Jumio Introduces Liveness Detection for Web to Better Deter Fraud During Account Onboarding19.7.2018 14:00 | Pressmeddelande
New identity proofing functionality ensures that the person behind a Web upload verification is present and the person actually creating a new online account PALO ALTO, Calif., July 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jumio, the creator of Netverify(TM) Trusted Identity as a Service (TIaaS), today announced the addition of Liveness Detection for Web to better thwart fraudsters' evolving and sophisticated attempts to assume another individual's identity. With identity verification, Jumio's approach is to first verify the government-issued ID (e.g., driver's license, passport or ID card) and ensure that it is authentic and has not been doctored. For mobile SDK customers, Jumio then requires the user to take a selfie which enables the company to compare the person in the selfie to the person pictured in the ID document. Since Netverify is an omnichannel solution, Jumio also supports identity verification via desktop webcams. This channel enables our customers to reach large market segments who a
