I am very new to BIMServer and to OpenStudio, and I'm am trying to import an IFC file from BIMServer into OpenStudio. So, first, I start a BIMServer session (I mean, I launch bimserverjar-1.5.74.jar), and I click "Launch Webbrowser". Then I create a project, and upload an IFC in it, it is fine. Now, I open OpenStudio, click Import IFC, and I am prompted to enter:

  • BIMServer Address
  • BIMServer Port
  • UserName
  • Password

In the BIMServer starter window (the one from which I clicked "Launch Webbrowser"), I see address: localhost, Port 8082. So I put that as well in the OpenStudio window for importing the IFC. For the user name and the password, well I'm pretty confident I have these right (it's the "user" name, right? Not the "Server" name)... and basically, when I click Okay, I got the error message "BIMServer disconnected". "BIMServer is not connected correctly. Please check if BIMServer is running and make sur your username and password are valid."

What am I doing wrong? This is OpenStudio 2.1.0.

Thanks a lot for any help! Arnaud.

Hi! I'm unable to help with your problem bc I'm even newer than you to BIMserver... I wanna know what is BIMserver and how you find this information? It might sounds silly but would really be helpful to me, and then maybe I can help with your problem hhh.
