BCF Managers

BCF Managers

BIMcollab plug-ins for all major BIM tools

BCF Managers for all BIM tools

The BCF Managers enables you to create, filter and lookup issues within your BIM model. Save and load issues with BCF files or synchronize them in BIMcollab. Share issues with team members whether they are working with the same or different BIM tools. 

Start in model checking and clash detection software (like Solibri, Navisworks or BIMsight) and lookup issues in BIM modeling tools like ARCHICAD, Revit and Tekla Structures. Review solutions, follow mark-ups, or provide feedback.

All features of BIMcollab are supported from the BCF Managers, like private issues, notify, approval-workflow.

Efficient interface

The interface offers you more information about the issues in one clear overview. When creating or editing issues all issue properties can be accessed. A more transparent way of connecting to the cloud and filtering or synchronizing issues.

Insight in viewpoint content, quick zoom and bounding box for fast creation of clipping planes makes you more productive.

Camera positioning

Finding the location of issues in your model is an essential part of the system. Camera positioning has been improved a lot and even takes into account the possibilities with different BIM tools coordinate systems like survey points in Revit. Component highlighting is improved and a Quick zoom helps working with very big models.


High performance

Speed is essential when dealing with large models and large numbers of issues. Connecting, downloading and publishing issues is very fast due to the improved background loading and caching. Automatic notifications for slow viewpoints prevent you from creating bottlenecks.

Nick Reynolds, BIM Manager at Bouygues UK, about BIMcollab: "Love it already!"

Make issues even on 2D documents

Create issues in 2D floor plans, sections, elevations and detail drawings. Even create issues within your 3D model. They are easily located because every issue automatically opens the right drawing, zoom and view in your BIM model. Use this functionality for BIM tools that include 2D documents like Revit and ARCHICAD.


Navisworks and Revit BCF Managers

In addition to great performance, the BCF Managers allows you to generate BCF-issues from saved viewpoints. And you can select multiple clash-tests to generate issues from.

Shared coordinates and survey points

Another great feature is the support for moved ├índ rotated survey points for both Revit and Navisworks in projects with shared coordinate systems. Watch the webinar about working with BIMcollab and Navisworks >
The Revit add-on also supports working in shared projects with multiple users.

Merge BCF files

When you want to merge BCF files use the smart merging of BIMcollab which takes care of comments in the right order and a history log of the work done. Use the BCF managers to preview BCF files and filter issues before uploading them to BIMcollab.

NavisWorks Clashes

You can use the clash-results from Navisworks Clash Detective to generate issues in the BCF Managers or BIMcollab. The generated issues can be automatically set to resolved when the clash was solved in new model-versions.

Connect to BIMcollab

Use the BCF Managers to connect to BIMcollab and you will experience up-to-date information and fast communication. It speeds up the process and improves the reliability of your issue management. It bridges the gap between the used BIM tools.
