BIM software

BIM software is a 3D design & modeling software that enables you to create virtual models of entire projects from conception to completion.

The visual models can easily be shared, reviewed, and updated by team members to enable analysis, new ideas, changes, cross-checking, and management.

The virtual master models created using BIM software are made up of various objects produced by applications that are plugged into BIM (such as Revit).

About Revit

Revit is one of the most popular applications built for BIM. Its used by designers to visualize, design, simulate, and work together.

The purpose of Revit is to create 2D drawings, 3D models and schedules, which are fed into the BIM software. Any subsequent changes are reflected automatically throughout the software.

  • Enhanced planning and collaboration
  • Easily shared 3D designs
  • Improved project quality
