EINDHOVEN 29-06-2020 – As BIMcollab continues to expand their ecosystem through integrations with the industry’s most popular BIM tools, recent development efforts have been focused primarily on partnering with CDE platforms. The latest edition is the integration between BIMcollab and Trimble Connect.
Erik Pijnenburg, CEO – BIMcollab: “Our goal is to integrate BIMcollab with as many BIM tools as possible, whether they are model-authoring, model-checking or model-sharing solutions. We are convinced that with the Trimble Connect – BIMcollab integration we are offering our mutual users the best integrated solution available to share and improve models.”
Collaboration made easy
The Trimble Connect – BIMcollab integration provides a cloud-based, single source of truth solution for models, project documents ánd issues. It simplifies collaboration and coordination across each phase of the project lifecycle. From the office to the field, Trimble Connect’s powerful combination of client applications and workflow extensions allows quick, convenient access to the information you need, when you need it.
BIMcollab users, including those who do not have access to BIM modeling tools, will be able to view, edit and comment on issues in the context of the 3D models in the cloud. All of this can be done using the familiar Trimble Connect webviewer, making it easy to use with practically no learning curve. And finally, since the integration makes use of models stored online in Trimble Connect, there is no extra file management needed and users can be certain to use the latest model-versions.
Marcel Broekmaat, Product Director – Trimble Connect: “We are excited to be able to provide Connect’s Common Data Environment and BIM Viewer capabilities to BIMcollab users. BIMcollab and Trimble Connect share a common goal: to offer an open and performant environment for project collaboration with data made available in the context of the 3D design.”
