BIMcollab issue management integrated in latest release of Vectorworks

BIMcollab and Vectorworks have announced an integration to guarantee Vectorworks users direct access to the BIMcollab Nexus issue management platform.

Vectorworks is a world-renowned BIM application that provides extensive drafting, BIM, and rendering capabilities for architectural, landscape and entertainment design.

“Collaboration is key when it comes to BIM, and at Vectorworks, we strive to deliver improved ways for designers to work together. The BCF connection between Vectorworks and BIMcollab allows for a more streamlined information exchange process and issue management crucial for successfully coordinating Building Information Models.”

– Luc Lefebvre, Vectorworks Product Marketing Manager-Architecture

Faster connection

BIMcollab is used daily on thousands of projects worldwide to connect stakeholders using different BIM applications. BIMcollab provides a bridge for sharing issues found in model-checking software to BIM modelling applications. This solution results in faster time-to-close conflicts and better end results for projects and clients.

Direct access

With this latest integration, users of Vectorworks will now have direct access to the BIMcollab issue management platform with its trusted feature set, easy-to-locate viewpoints and components, and be able to comment and create issues on BIMcollab projects.

“BIM issue management can occur in real-time when using a BIM authoring tool like Vectorworks in combination with a BCF web service like BIMcollab, significantly improving the communication among BIM Collaborators.”

– Darick DeHart, Vectorworks Chief Product Officer

Up-to-date information

It is no longer needed to export and import BCF files manually. Synchronization will only take one click, and the user will see the latest information. This more reliable workflow eliminates the extra work of managing versions and ensures that the user is working with up-to-date information.

At BIMcollab, we are pleased that a leading design tool such as Vectorworks has joined the already extensive range of BIM applications with which BIMcollab projects can interact.

I am thrilled to have Vectorworks onboard as one of the main BIM tools to connect to BIMcollab. This live connection will boost our mutual users in creating better models.”

– Erik Pijnenburg, CEO of BIMcollab
