Architosh Analysis and Commentary
KUBUS, which happens to be the exclusive distributor for GRAPHISOFT and Solibri solutions in the Benelux, continues to expand its global partnerships for its BIMcollab Cloud and BIMcollab ZOOM solutions. The former tool is focused on “issue management” helping teams and collaborators work through design and engineering issues in BIM model workflows in AEC. The solution has been mentioned in several firm profile stories of architects in Europe, for example, in our case study feature on Assael Architecture, a 100-person Vectorworks Architect-based practice in the UK.
BIMcollab ZOOM on the other hand is a BIM model validation software solution. Then there is a free version (ZOOM Free) and a full paid version. The solution offers clash detection, requirements validation, smart views, color-coding workflows, BIM data extraction, and list generations. Naturally, it works with issue management via BIMcollab Cloud. KUBUS is focused on Open BIM workflow technologies and they support the BCF (BIM Collaboration Format) for Open BIM workflows.
BIMcollab’s latest partnership with BIM6x will certainly help bolster and support GRAPHISOFT’s US-based BIM users, as well as provide access to expansion for BIMcollab, which continues to grow into one of the top first-class BIM collaboration solutions in the global market.
