Renga Software Announces Renga BIM System

Renga BIM System from Renga Software was announced this summer and offers a new alternative to BIM solutions.


Renga Software has been advancing its BIM technologies. The Renga BIM System includes the components of Renga Architecture, Renga Structure, and Renga MEP.

The system supports new axonometric view tools and efficient new features that enable users to more reliably work in 3D viewports.

Renga BIM System

Renga now has the ability to generate 44 axonometric projections and insert them into drawings. The press release reads: “Designers can now use all axonometric projections as described in All-Union State Standard GOST 2.317-2011 ‘Unified system of design documentation. Axonometric Projections. No other architectural or civil engineering software has this feature set for designing.”

The Renga folks make the valid point that design engineers in MEP and civil utilize axonometric projection views the most in technical documentation—relying on them to show components and systems integrated together into assemblies for buildings and infrastructure. The new axonometric functionalities in making Renga MEP a preferrable choice for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing disciplines in AECO.

Renga BIM System consists of Renga Architecture, Renga Structure, and Renga MEP.

Axonometric projects are also very valuable to construction pros in the field. The value to communicate in various axonometric projections becomes self-explanatory in the experience of using them. (see images above and below). Unlike standard floor plans, elevations, sections, et cetera, these axonometric views allow more complexity to be understood more readily. Complex connection nodes, or elements of a building, can be communicated more visually and realistically.

Renga BIM System features extensive axonometric view support, highly useful for MEP and civil engineering documentation. In this view, an architect can copy both the wall and its openings in a single click and drag them to another level for full 3D view mode editing.

The Renga software development team has considerably extended the functionality of 3D modeling. You can now design objects at any given point in 3D space, copying objects on any plane and not only within the work plane. For example, users can copy the wall with window openings up the elevation in one click. (see image above).

The Powerful Role of PDF

Renga acknowledges the role of PDF in the AECO industry and contends that the BIM model is still rarely used at the construction stage, with the preference of data exchange happening with the PDF drawings themselves. This is arguably true and certainly might help explain the massive rise in the use of Bluebeam software by construction companies over the past several years.

Renga BIM System supports new PDF placement in 3D views that enable 3D modeling on top of the PDF.

In light of this, Renga has updated PDF insertion abilities. You can now insert PDF drawings into the 3D workspace in Renga and use them as the basis for 3D modeling in BIM workflows, saving time, improving accuracy, and increasing speed.

Renga has also implemented batch exporting for drawings into PDF, DWG, and DXF formats, for use when publishing document packages. Other new features include an updated Door Tool. The new tool features more BIM capable editing and creation features, including analysis for emergency exit requirements, and door-to-door swing overlaps. There are numerous improvements to Renga MEP and Renga Structure, as well.

Renga BIM System runs on the Windows and readers can download a full trial version here. You can read about Renga BIM System here.
