Nueva herramienta de diseño de sistemas de aire acondicionado

As part of its commitment to facilitate the work of planners, architectural studios and engineering firms, in addition to being aware of the importance of creating a future in which collaboration, cooperation, optimisation and ease of working are key for the construction sector, the Commercial & Industrial Division of Bosch Thermotechnology, part of Bosch Group, has launched its own customised version of the CYPE Open BIM Systems tools: a software that facilitates the BIM design, calculation and modelling of Bosch VRF systems.

And so Open BIM BOSCH was conceived, a free air conditioning system design tool for its VRF range (Variable Refrigerant Flow), which is integrated into the CYPE Open BIM workflow via the BIMserver.center platform.

Thanks to this technology, Bosch is able to implement a collaborative, cross-disciplinary and multi-user workflow, resulting in open, coordinated and simultaneous project development. This workflow offers iterative project planning, progressively resolving its different aspects and components.
