What is an .BSWX file?

.BSWX is BIMReview 3D Model

A BSWX file is a 3D model saved in the BIMReview BSWX format. It contains a model of a building, which includes the spatial location (X, Y, Z) and fabrication information for each part of the model.

You can view BSWX files in Windows using BIMReview, STRUMIS, and Autodesk Advance Steel. There is no known program for macOS or Linux that supports the BSWX format.

BSWX files are typically created using BIMReview. But they may also be created using Autodesk Revit with the BIMProject plugin installed.

NOTE: StruMIS was formerly known as AceCad.
