OverviewThe COBie Toolkit produces COBie v2 deliverables in conjunction with Revit model development. The template provides a non-automated means to capture COBie development in Revit, export data to a text file, and facilitate eventual intake into spreadsheets. The development of a data-rich BIM model for eventual FM handover necessitates grounded discussions and planning amongst the project team. The realm of digital, non-graphic data development and delivery in the AEC process is new and developing, and will evolve and mature considerably in the next few years. COBie is a general framework for data exchange or delivery. Each project must tailor its goals for the resources and requirements of the project, and for the continuing lifecycle needs and capabilities of the owner/operator.
Getting StartedThe download provides you with a zip format file containing an executable file (setup.exe) which will install the Revit COBie add-in application. It also contains a User’s Guide (PDF) which details how to use the application, plus a list of all the support files installed. Download and open the COBie zip file, extract the files to your computer, and run the installer. For more detailed instructions see the User’s Guide.
