||Object oriented communication with NICC (neutral intelligent CADcommunication)
||NICC is a recommendation of the Swedish construction industry forNeutral Intelligent CAD Communication. It will make it possible for differentparticipants in the industry to exchange information in a standardized way,independent of which CAD-system they have chosen. As NICC describesbuilding objects (walls, windows, doors, etc) it makes it possible to transferuniform and structured information during the whole process. The descriptionof the building objects in NICC is based upon a simplified geometry. NICCcan manage GEOMETRY OBJECTS (building objects and spaces),SYSTEMS (logical groupings of geometry objects), CONNECTIONS(between geometry objects) and LOCATIONS. The idea behind NICC is totransfer information about Ilintelligent " building objects classified after astandard, in Sweden the BSAB-system. Each CAD-system, drawing or modeloriented, has to map its own structured data to the minimal meta model ofNICC.
