Save time and create high quality BIM models

Your team aims to create high quality BIM models without any issues. To do so, the entire project team should have access to the right BIM requirements and to all relevant issues which need solving.

BIMcollab ZOOM is easy to learn and helps to find information flaws, to communicate them in early stages via BIMcollab Cloud and to verify solutions. It's the only free model viewer and BIM validation tool that is fully integrated in issue management workflows.

Detect, share, solve.

Why you need BIMcollab ZOOM

Save time on clash management with Smart Issues

BIMcollab’s new Smart Issues know the clashes they represent, to which objects they belong, and when they are reported or solved. This intelligent solution prevents the overhead caused by redundant clash-reporting.

Even if you or your team members run other clash-rules, with different clash grouping, in a later stage, ZOOM will recognize the clash immediately and show its (color coded) status: reported, ignored or new. This enables large teams to divide the workload across multiple BIM managers.

Also, Smart issues can check the status of linked clashes automatically, without a user having to rerun clash-detection rules. This opens new, more reliable and smarter workflows, taking less time.

Lists: data extraction reinvented

BIMcollab ZOOM offer an unprecedented solution for extracting and sharing information from your BIM model: Lists. Create your own dynamic lists via drag & drop and easily drill down to the quantities you need. Lists has three options:

  • Easily define lists to combine BIM information that you need for your project. Just drag & drop.

  • Work with insightful property tables, Excel-like pivot grids or raw dashboard data.

  • Interact with your model while clicking results. Get to the bottom of understanding the design.

  • Share your lists with your team via BIMcollab Cloud to view online or with other ZOOM users (even those who have the free version). Start real cloud collaboration.

Fastest clash detection available!

The clash detection in ZOOM is amazingly fast and accurate for detecting clashes in your BIM models. Visualize, group and report issues with ease and share everything (including clash rules) with your team via BIMcollab Cloud.

Clash detection is only available in the paid version of ZOOM. We can show you in a free demo, but you can also test it yourself in a 30-day free trial!

Validate more efficient with smart views

With smart views you can dynamically show and color- code components based on their properties and quickly gain insight in the quality of the information in your BIM model. When the results of a smart view identify a problem, you can immediatly create an issue for others to solve.

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. 

You can easily share smart views with team members via drag & drop and define them to be project specific or project independent. It's up to you.

But there's more...

Share BIM requirements & project setup (free)

Allow team members to find and open the right models by simply connecting to a project. At the same time they receive BIM requirements in the form of shared Smart views, Clash rules ánd Lists.

Use clash grouping

Avoid creating multiple issues for comparable clashes by grouping them. Get more effective.

Check pointclouds against IFC models (free)

Load point clouds and combine them with IFC files to check for deviations between ‘as built’ versus ‘as designed’. You can open point cloud data from common used formats like .e57 and .txt.

Batch issue generation

When dealing with hundreds of clashes, the batch issue generation speeds up the proces of communicating clashes.

Single click annotations (free)

Add texts, arrows, dimensions, revision mark-ups or property-stamps to issue-viewpoints for easy communication.

Export BIM data to Excel or PowerBI

With Lists you can define any form of property list or pivot-table and export them to Excel or PowerBI for dashboarding

Load models five times faster

Using multi-thread technology, BIMcollab ZOOM drastically reduces loading times for large sets of models. Combined with quick smart views and fast data extraction via Lists, we’re fortifying our position as the fastest IFC validation tool in the world.

For this test we used a set of publicly available models like the BIMcollab example model, buildingSMART's sample test files and Open IFC Model Repository.
