About BIMvision

BIMvision is a freeware IFC model viewer. It allows to view the virtual models coming from CAD systems like Revit, Archicad, BricsCAD BIM, Advance, DDS-CAD, Tekla, Nemetschek VectorWorks, Bentley, Allplan and others without necessity of having commercial licenses of these systems or having each of particular vendor’s viewer. BIMvision visualizes the BIM models created in IFC format 2×3 and 4.0. It has many built-in features and is the first viewer with plugin interface.

BIMvision is a tool extremely easy to use which will help you save time, money and energy invested in task implementation. BIMvision allows project participants to identify the problems and solve them still during the design phase. More efficient than ever circulation of information between the participants of the investment process and the optimization of working time are the biggest advantages of working with this tool.

What you can do with BIMvision?

Our browser offers you many opportunities to validate the model for eg. using options such as “Storey Slide” or “Filter” (plugin). In this way, you check eg. whether the elements have well defined parameters, or implementation phase (eg. Floor).

BENEFITS:

  • Optimization of time and effort
  • Risk mitigation
  • Improvement of quality

Multiple measurement module options will provide you the possibility for quick checking of the quantity for one or more elements (in any of the declared units: m, m2, m3). After two clicks you can get information about the area of the cavity wall, the volume of the concrete foundation slab, the weight of selected steel elements, etc. Additionally, if you want to quickly and efficiently estimate the cost of the work, you can use another other tool offered by us – BIMestiMate.

BENEFITS:

  • time optimization
  • full data control
  • improving communication between process participants

Full freedom of model presentation: sections, projections, views of any planes, presentation depending on the user’s preferences in a full, semi-transparent view …

BENEFITS:

  • present your strongest points to your client
  • analyze, communicate and collect opinions in an extremely accessible way

Change is an integral part of project management. We understand this and that is why we have equipped BIMvision with the option to monitor and manage changes. The “Change” option identifies changes in subsequent versions of the model, at the same time classifying them automatically into groups depending on the type of change.

BENEFITS:

  • increased control over the project
  • reduction of time spent on the analysis of changes
  • minimizing the risk of errors at the implementation stage

The option allows you to easily navigate in the model from the perspective of the first person (e.g. free walking around the building). The camera rotates around the observer.  This mode is useful for navigating within infrastructure models or for indoor navigation, especially in touch mode.

This format allows you to save all opened IFC files to one file (including plugin data). We can, for example: open several files for different industries for one object (using the Multifile module), add comments and save everything as one file with the BVF extension. When you open it again you will find everything in one place, both all IFC files and previously made comments.

Now you can add a cutting plane of the selected face (by default) or a selected edge or the global axis. What’s more, you can move the cutting plane directly on the model view with a simple mouse movement (Shift + left mouse button) or using (as before) the Shift + scroll option of the mouse.

BIMvision has a new dimension. From now on we have the opportunity to work based on files in IFC4 format.

Note the fact that this range of software functions is still in the testing phase. In case of any problem, feel free to contact us and send us the file where the problem occurred.

Main Benefits:

EASY TO GET/LEARN/USE

BIMvision is free and extremely easy to use. This highly intuitive tool will help you to present your work to all participants of the process. Please do not forget that they also have easy access to it.

COST SAVINGS

Present the concept to your client before the investment is completed. Any changes at this stage cost less. Prevent changes at the later stages of the investment. This will allow you to avoid unnecessary stress and unreasonable expenses for your client.

TIME OPTIMIZATION

Check if the project is correct before passing it on to the General Contractor or Investor. In this way, you will not only minimize the risk of detecting errors at the stage of investment implementation. Thus you will avoid the need for unforeseen revisions and corrections of the project, as well as slowing down the pace of work or even the need to suspend works.

COMMUNICATION IMPROVEMENT

Make sure that all information will reach other participants of the investment process. Place your comment and wait for a reply. Quickly, efficiently and without the need to create additional, unnecessary documents. Now your caller can see not only what the problem is, but also the exact place where it occurred.
