Tracer + IFC – Using Open BIM with Power BI
TRACER IFC enables users to process 3D IFC files for use in the Power BI workflow. IFC files are a ‘platform neutral’ BIM format and can be exported from various BIM applications including Revit, ArchiCAD, Tekla, Vectorworks, AECOsim, and more!
In this webinar, Nathan Miller will discuss how supporting IFC can enable building design and construction professionals to leverage a wider variety of BIM data for business intelligence.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- The advantages for using IFC as part of the BIM data lifecycle.
- How Tracer can process an IFC file to a relational SQLite database file.
- How the Tracer 3D Power BI visual can display IFC geometry and data
- How to join the BETA testing program

Business Intelligence for AECO
Business Intelligence (BI for short) refers to technologies and processes that provide historical, correlated, and predictive views of an organization’s data resources. As designers and builders create and leverage data-rich toolsets, the use of BI is becoming increasingly integral to leverage data among a variety of tools and resources.
This free webinar will feature a presentation, demo, and Q&A with Nathan Miller – CEO of Proving Ground. Nate will discuss and present opportunities for architects, engineers, contractors, and owners to take advantage of Business Intelligence. Nate will also demonstrate uses of Power BI-focused apps Tracer and Semantic for analyzing 2D and 3D data available in Revit and Rhinoceros 3D.
In this webinar, you will:
- Learn about the concept of Business Intelligence as a building data strategy.
- Learn about use cases for business intelligence in design, construction, and operations.
- Learn about 2D and 3D Power BI products supporting Revit and Rhino 3D.
- Learn about services for implementation and skill development.
