BIM vision of Matrix Software

Matrix Software develops software for structural engineers, steel manufacturers and windows & doors frame manufacturers. Each discipline has its own need for digital information exchange and working in a BIM. In recent years, Matrix has put a lot of time and effort into charting the need. This has resulted in a number of pragmatic software solutions.

Matrix considers the 3D design software as the central source for the digital building information. We consider the solutions Matrix provides for its target groups as BIM tools to better design buildings and to produce buildings more efficiently. Through these tools, the building information is detailed and enriched and given back to the 3D design software as a "block" of information..

MatrixFrame & BIM

MatrixFrame is the most complete computing software for engineers. It starts with the toolbox. A collection of 42 compact but extremely powerful detail calculations in concrete, steel, wood and masonry. MatrixFrame then supports 1D beams, 2D frames and trusses, 2D beam gratings, 3D frameworks and trusses and finally FEM panels and FEM walls.

MatrixFrame has various exchange formats: including DXF, MDB, XML and IFC. In the past year a lot of experience was gained with the model exchange in a project group with around 5 customers. IFC models from for example Revit Structure, Tekla Structures or Advance Steel can be opened within MatrixFrame in a Matrix IFC model browser. In this explorer selections can be made of 1D, 2D, 3D or FEM models. From these selections MatrixFrame is started up for the structural design.
