Our team, and the Speckle community itself, are very excited to be announcing three new connectors that will soon be enriching our ecosystem of open source data tools for the AEC industry, and beyond!
As you know, part of our core mission is to democratise access to data, we want to empower you with the data you produce, and most importantly that you own.
Let's have a quick look at these connectors!
Note: These connectors are all still in WIP (work in progress) and feedback is very welcome, go ahead try them and let us know what you think!
QGIS is a free and open-source cross-platform desktop geographic information system application that supports viewing, editing, and analysis of geospatial data.
This connector is still in the early stages of development and currently we're currently focusing on the “data extraction” (sending from QGIS to Speckle), improving supported layer geometry types, stability, and other basic things before we get to the good stuff!

Power BI is a Microsoft business analytics service. It provides interactive visualizations and business intelligence capabilities with an interface that Microsoft says is simple enough for end users to create reports and dashboards. It is part of the Microsoft Power Platform.
Being Speckle a data platform, it follows quite naturally that you might want to analyze streams and commit coming from it. Power BI is a powerful and commonly adopted solution to wrangle various data sources together. That's why we are developing a Power BI connector that will let you pull data from Speckle in few easy steps!

TopSolid is a fully integrated CAD/CAM software that allows users to design and manufacture their parts (by programming numerically controlled machines) using the same software.
This connector is currently being developed by the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).
