Manage User Permissions for BCF (BIM Collaboration Format)

The purpose of this article is to explain how to manage user permissions for BCF. 

BCF (BIM Collaboration Format) is an ‘open’, industry-standard file exchange format.

BCF allows project teams to exchange issues, comments, and review items (created in one BIM application) with other BIM applications that support it.

We have to set user permissions in Kairnial in order to enable and set up BCF exchanges:

  1. Click Setup
  2. Click ACL
  3. Type 'BCF' in the search field
  4. Enables the following permissions for the corresponding teams/roles:
    • bcf:Import_bcf_archive
    • bcf:Export_bcf_archive


  5. Once done, it is possible to import/export BCF in the Models & Plans module
