CVIE Implementation Testing: Solibri
Solibri Model Checker

The following table provides the analysis conducted to evaluate software manufacturer compliance with the Coordination View Information Exchange (CVIE) conducted for the 23-25 July 2008 Building Information Modeling Information Exchange Demonstration.
The CVIE requirements include provision of a clash detection report with each design deliverable. Hard- (physical co-location) and Soft- (using clearance distances) should be included in the clash analysis. To allow an independent analysis of clash detections the CVIE requirement also asks for a copy of the IFC 2x3 Coordination View file.
