KUBUS has announced the new BIMcollab ZOOM, a popular collaboration platform for AECO users in the European and global BIM market. A big new feature is a connection to Power BI.
KUBUS says in its release the new BIMcollab ecosystem revolutionizes the way AEC professionals extract and share information from their BIM models. You can now create insightful overviews of your BIM data using flexible pivot grids using drag and drop. With this new feature, you can drill deep into your BIM data while interacting with your BIM model directly.
The new Lists features enable you to create multiple types of lists. Next to the standard property lists most BIM tools provide, ZOOM offers intuitive pivot grids, where data fields can be dragged & dropped across filters, columns, rows, and values with no limitations. The results are immediately displayed in an interactive overview, where every click visually shows you the related components in your 3D view.
All list views can be shared and viewed via BIMcollab Cloud (including the free version), to other BIMcollab ZOOM users in your team or exported to PDF, XLS, or CSV. And now advanced reporting is made easy due to a direct connection to Microsoft Power BI.
BIMcollab’s updated Power BI connector can directly access Lists data, allowing you to create advanced dashboards and reports with the world’s most used data visualization tool. This enables real-time insight into the progress and quality of your BIM model, even for the non-BIM users among your stakeholders.
Faster Model Loading
The latest BIMcollab ZOOM also offers several other improvements. Project setups, like model and folder structures, whether on local servers or file-sharing systems, can now be shared via BIMcollab Cloud, allowing team members to find and open the right models by simply connecting to a project. Like in every update the performance has been improved as well. From now on, BIMcollab ZOOM will load your models up to five times faster than other viewers on the market.
