Several members of the Open Design Alliance (ODA) team arrived in southern Italy after ODA DevCon last week in Milan to give an update on ODA technologies, including Drawings, BimRv, and IFC SDKs, and also the ODA Technology Stack.
Sergey Vishnevetsky, ODA Director of Development, commented that it was great to see new ODA features already implemented in IntelliCAD. Also he was happy to report that they had been working on common properties functionality thanks to ITC requests. Common data access to all supported ODA formats includes access to both the model tree and properties. The model tree structure is still in-progress, but common properties are in production currently.
We also heard about ODA's strategic partnership with buildingSMART. This is exciting news for several reasons, one being that the ITC is in the process of transitioning to ODA IFC SDK for IntelliCAD's current IFC support.
