Lobbyist Wars and the Development of BIM. Part 2: open BIM VS closed BIM. Revit vs ArchiCAD and Europe VS the Rest of the World

Which BIM software to use? Overview of tools for BIM planning.

Open BIM vs. Closed BIM

  • Closed BIM — Using a Single Software Vendor in Environment Planning
  • Open BIM — work with an open data format (mainly IFC), which (in theory, lossless) should be automatically read by other programs.
  • From 2000 to 2010, the CAD software (3D) market in all countries was dominated by ArchiCAD and Vectorworks of the Hungarian startup Graphisoft
  • After Nemetschek takes over ArchiCAD and Vectorworks, since 2010 (after the global crisis) there has been a surge of interest in Revit in all countries and a reorientation of planning towards the Revit product
  • In some countries Revit has completely displaced ArchiCAD from planning in a few years
  • Tekla and Allplan, which started in the same direction as Revit, cannot boast of the functionality and marketing that Revit and Autodesk have.
  • Revit holds the lion’s share (over 50–90%) of the BIM CAD market in almost every country in the world.
