Faster, smarter, easier

The free Viewer version of BIMcollab Zoom is the most powerful IFC viewer in the world. It enables you to find, visualize and communicate information flaws in federated models. It’s beloved by BIM professionals world-wide for a good reason: it’s faster, smarter and easier to use than any other free IFC viewer available.

Explore your model without delay

Enjoy fast loading, high frame rates and smooth navigation, no matter how big your model is.

Validate more efficiently with Smart Views

Check your BIM models with customizable smart views: easy filtering and coloring of objects you want to highlight.

Anyone can (re)view your model

No need for expensive tools. All your stakeholders can now view and evaluate your BIM models for free.

Check your models more efficiently with Smart Views

With smart views you can dynamically filter and color-code components based on their properties and quickly gain insight in the quality of the information in your BIM model.

Unique and unparalleled is the auto color feature. With this option, you can color-code components automatically based on selected properties, without having to specify them one-by-one.

Collaborate via BIMcollab

Team members without access to expensive BIM tools can download BIMcollab Zoom Viewer for free and connect to the BIMcollab Nexus project. Issues can be easily looked up in the model, commented on, assigned to a responsible team member, or marked as approved.

New issues are created in a heartbeat, with relevant viewpoints and new comments. Once done, synchronize your work with your team on BIMcollab Nexus with the press of a button.

What are you waiting for? It’s free.
