Can you tell me whether Archibus can work with Spaces and property sets attached to space objects ? right now our FM dept does polylines, and in our architectural phase we use Spaces and it would be nice to have the Archibus connected to spaces rather than polylines.
I like to believe that Autodesk FM is the right tool, however I will not put money into it unless Autodesk provides specific seminar or presentation of the System working Together with the Revit BIM System.
The fact is that currently many of the Archibus user, if not all, are still using AutoCAD drawing files, with polyline to classify areas per BOMA, however with the New National BIM Standards, and BIM becoming the main platform for Building Design and Construction any FM solution needs to be working with a BIM Model.
So I would like to See Autodesk FM with Autodesk Revit in action, in a case study, or a sample project shown by Autodesk.
If you are referring to Autodesk FMDesktop, an FMDesktop specialized reseller in your area should be able to show you Revit and FMDesktop integration. I would suggest you contact Matt Davoren at CADD Microsystems in the DC area.
