    Tekla BIMsight

    We have been playing with it for the last few days, so far it seems pretty incredible.

    Fairly easy to use interface, streamlined, lightweight, and navigation is a breeze... Both through the model and the program.

    It has an Add-in exporter, but all it is doing is kicking out to IFCzip. But, when the exporter does it automatically, it seems to export very well. Even Model Groups show up as *elements* in it.

    So far the one caveat is Curtain SYSTEMS dont seem to show up, but i havent even tried tweaking any settings. Just grabbed a model and plopped it out. No issues with wall attachments, etc, like i would typically see from IFC.

    Pretty cool!

    Havent downloaded it yet, and couldnt see on the website. Seeming that the download is so small, is it a standalone exe program, full install, Or is it web-based? (similar to Solibri)

    From the screen shots it does look good

      Local Hardware based, it installs. (Oh, forgot the important part: Its free.)

        Thanks for the heads up Aaron!

        I´ve installed it, but can´t figure what you mean by a "Add-in exporter" ? Do I need to install that separately ? Or am I just not seeing it ? Thanks :beer:

          You have to install that seperately. BIMsight and the exporter are two different downloads...

              What is everyone's thoughts on this? There is Navisworks, Solibri, Synchro, Constructor, Primavera, and BIMsight...what all do they have compared to each other? I have always liked Navis and have been using it since Autodesk bought it out, but what does everyone else think on the subject?

                I think something like BIMSight *could* have enough functionality to replace Navis, for us. The two things we dont use in Navis are Presenter and Timeliner. (We use Revit/DWF/Max, and Synchro, respectively). So if the two features missing are what justifies the costs of Navisworks....

                But we are still in early testing. It may turn out to have other shortcomings.

                  Teresa Martin with Ideate in San Francisco wrote a pretty objective review of it the other day on her blog a [BIM] New World. Since Tekla is using it as their 'bully pulpit' for IFC it will be interesting to see how it affects the authoring tools like Revit.

                    Great review, I think the inability to support point coulds is a really big set back. Although point clouds are not vastly used yet, they are something that will be up and comming quickly.
