BIM Vision is a freeware IFC model viewer. It allows to view the virtual models coming from CAD systems like Revit, Archicad, 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. BIM Vision visualizes the BIM models created in IFC format 2×3. It has many built-in features and is the first viewer with plugin interface.
BIM Vision is a tool extremely easy to use which will help you save time, money and energy invested in task implementation. Bim Vision 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 BIM Vision?
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).
- Optimization of time and effort
- Risk mitigation
- Improvement of quality
Extensive options for measurements module will provide you the possibility for quick checking of amounts for one or more elements (in any of declared unit: m, m2, m3). After two clicks you can get the knowledge about the area of cavity wall, volume of the concrete foundation slab or weight of the selected steel elements etc. Additionally, if you want to quickly and efficiently estimate the cost of the works you can use other tool offered by us - BIMestiMate.
- Optimization of time
- Full control over the data
- Improve communication between participants of the process
Change is an integral part of project management. We understand that and that is why we have equipped BIM Vision in an option dedicated to monitor and manage changes. The "Changes" identifies the changes in the new revisions of the model and automatically classifying them into groups depending on the type of change ( Modified, Not modified, Removed, Added, Layers, Properties)
- Increased control over project
- Reduction of time spent on analysis of changes
- Risk mitigation
The option allows to look easily around and walk inside the model from the first-person perspective. Camera rotates around the observer. This mode is useful to walk-through the infrastructure models as well as to navigate inside the buildings, especially in touch mode.
BVF format allows you to save all opened IFC files into one file (with plugin data). We can for ex.: open in one view some IFC files coming from different branches and dedicated for one object (using Multifile Module) than add comments and save all of these data into one file. Opening it again we find everything in one place, all IFC files as well as the applied previously comments.
Now you can add cutting plane of selected face (by default) or across selected Edge or an global axis. Moreover you can move cutting planes directly on model view with mouse move with Shift + left mouse button or Shift + mouse wheel.
BIM Vision has a new dimension. From today we have the opportunity to work based on files in the format IFC4.
Please be aware of the fact, that this range of functionality of the software is still in the testing phase. In case of any problems please do not hesitate to contact with us and sending us the file where the any problem occured.

EASY TO GET/LEARN/USE
BIM Vision 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.
Present the concept to your Client before construction of the building will rise. Any change at this stage costs less. Prevent changes later. It will allow you to avoid unnecessary stress and your Client will avoid unreasonable expenses.
Check designs prior to delivery to construction company or building owners. In that way you mitigate the risk. Moreover you can avoid the unexpected design revisions and consequently slowing the work or even the need to stop the work.
Make confident that all information reach the other participants in the proces. Place your comment and wait for a response. Fast, efficiently and without the need for additional, of useless papers. Now your caller can see not only what is the problem but the exact place where it occurred.
