Tekla just released a new BIM collaboration / Clash Detection program to compete with Navisworks and Solibri. It’s built around IFC, which is awesome. We need more programs that put neutral source IFC collaboration as a priority. Down with the walled gardens. It’s time to share.
You can watch the official video from Tekla here. And read some first impressions here (REVIT blog with strong feelings regarding IFC that I disagree with), here, and well not here, but it’s a funny cartoon that feels relevant.
Oh and did I mention BIMsight is free? Yup. A program to compete with Navisworks and Solibri that’s FREE. So download it today and start exploring. It’s not mac based at the moment (don’t know if it will ever be), so I hope you all have a dual boot machine–since I don’t.
