The Green Building XML (gbXML) open schema helps facilitate the transfer of building properties stored in 3D building information models (BIM) to engineering analysis tools. Today, gbXML has the industry support of leading 3D BIM vendors such as Autodesk, Bentley, and Graphisoft. In addition, with the development of integration modules inside major engineering analysis tools, gbXML has become the defacto industry standard schema.
Its use dramatically streamlines the transfer of building information to and from engineering analysis tools, eliminating the need for time consuming plan take-offs. This removes a significant cost barrier to designing resource efficient buildings and specifying associated equipment.
