Developers please use https://api-stage.bimplus.net/v2 (stage version of Bimplus API) and http://portal-stage.bimplus.net/ (stage version of Shop/Portal) for testing purposes. The production version of the portal is located under https://portal.bimplus.net/  and the base url of the API is different for the production version.

Postman examples

  1. Please install Postman and import attached postman collections
    BimPlus.postman_collection.json

    postman_globals.json
    Production.postman_environment.json
    Stage.postman_environment.json

    if you don't know how it works show this video
    PostmanCollection.mp4

  2. Example for Ifc Import, creation of new revisions and final revision compare
    IfcImportWithRevisions.mp4

  3. Example for creating Modeldata 
    by using Geometry templates controller, objects controller and geometry types
     install additional postman collection 

    Create Modeldata.postman_collection.json
    Some mp4, which shows usage of geometry templates, csg and mesh data
    CreateMeshdata.mp4

PHP Rest Client

BimplusRestClient.php (PHP REST client)

// Example 1: Hello function (no accessToken needed)
// ---------------------------------------------------------------------
$url = 'https://api-stage.bimplus.net/v2/hello';
$verb = 'GET';

// Create object
$request = new BimplusRestClient(

    $verb
);

// Execute
$request->execute();
$response = $request->getResponse();

echo '<pre>';
print_r(json_decode($response));
echo '</pre>';




// Example 2: Get user data
// ---------------------------------------------------------------------
$userId = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'; // Bimplus userID
$url = 'https://api-stage.bimplus.net/v2/users/' . $userId;
$verb = 'GET';
$accessToken = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'; // accessToken

// Create object

    $accessToken
);

// Execute
$request->execute();
$response = $request->getResponse();

echo '<pre>';
print_r(json_decode($response));
echo '</pre>';



// Example 3: Update user data
// ---------------------------------------------------------------------
$userId = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'; // Bimplus userID
$url = 'https://api-stage.bimplus.net/v2/users/' . $userId;
$verb = 'PUT';
$accessToken = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'; // accessToken
$requestBody = array(
