iviva Smart BIM Featured among “10 Useful & Cool Forge-Powered Applications” at Autodesk University

Friday,22 November 2019

Our CTO Mr. Bandu Wewalaarachchi visited The Autodesk University in Vegas from 18-22 November. Bandu, who is the mastermind behind iviva’s Smart BIM, got the opportunity to deliver a lecture as well, during his time there. He spoke to a well-attended class to educate Forge developers and service providers about complications in enabling real-time monitoring and control of devices in large projects and presented a neat solution to the problem using Lucy.

A couple of key highlights of the visit were the keynotes delivered by the Autodesk CEO, Mr. Andrew Anagnost and Senior Director of Partner Development, Mr. Jim Quancy. They discussed the direction the Autodesk products and solutions are advancing toward in the future. The transition will be headed by breaking down operational silos in design, manufacturing and construction, Forge-data, and common metadata which are common to all Autodesk products.

It was also discussed that the building operations are not a focus area at the moment and Autodesk is expecting partners to fill the gap. iviva is playing two key roles in this: Smart BIM that promotes Forge in the building industry by enabling digital twins; and Lucy that augments Forge-data flow by extending it to devices, systems, and cloud services, and apply smart workflows on top of Forge solutions.

During the keynote, Autodesk presented iviva as one of the “10 useful and cool Forge powered applications”.

The keynote also announced some exciting improvements to Forge API. Some noteworthy ones were the performance improvements in the model translation process that significantly reduces the translated file size thereby considerably extending Forge’s ability to display very large BIMs preserving space/room data of Revit through the model translation process.

At iviva, we hope to continue to enhance iviva Smart BIM to take complete advantage of Forge’s awesome improvements to serve our existing iviva customers better, and to enable new customers while we continue to contribute to the Forge development community.

To stick to our word, and deliver the best support we could, we are extending an invitation to all the Forge developers to open and maintain a ‘developmental account’ of Lucy! If that’s you, and you would like to open and maintain a ‘developmental accounts’ of Lucy for backend integration for your Forge apps, please sign up with for Lucy account via the website, and send us a note with your account details. We would convert it to a development account with full functionality enabled, to make your Forge development journey easy and exciting.
