Tekla – BIM application for Everyone in Construction

Tekla BIMsight is a new collaboration tool that lets construction industry professionals step into the BIM (Building Information Modeling) process for free. This software application makes it easy to combine and understand 3D models created by different AEC disciplines with different software, to interpret the design intent, check for clashes, and comment and mark changes. Tekla BIMsight presents a centralized way to maintain and communicate shared construction information: project participants can see the big picture as well as every important detail in the same, illustrative and easy-to-grasp 3D model. Tekla BIMsight can be used throughout the workflow of construction, from the design phase of the building to its erection and site management.

 

”Tekla’s mission is to drive the evolution to digital information modeling, multiplying our customers’ potential to think and achieve big in their projects and businesses,” explains Tekla Executive Vice President Risto Räty. ”Understanding BIM as a centralized process rather than ’just a model’ requires cooperation and goodwill between the construction disciplines. This is exactly what we want to achieve with the new Tekla BIMsight software, and our part of the goodwill is to distribute it for free on this Valentine’s Day for the whole industry to easily take into use.”


Tekla BIMsight has been described as ’the missing link’ BIM  software application because it enables accurate and effective 3D building information model-based project collaboration and management for everyone in the industry. BIM-based way of working supports the modern requirements of sustainability and green building, for example, by optimizing prefabrication and site management and enabling a paperless process. Accurate, model-based communication enables better constructability through finding, reacting to and correcting possible design errors early before on-site construction. All this motivates people working in engineering and construction to centralize their data and to make requests for information accurately and efficiently through one shared application that presents the combined model of a whole construction project from every possible angle.

Tekla BIMsight software is ready to download for free at http://www.teklabimsight.com/. Video tutorials and an online user community make it easy for anyone to get started visualizing and communicating with building information models. At the moment, Tekla BIMsight is only available in English.

The new Tekla Structures 17 provides even more interoperability 

Tekla is launching a new version of its main product Tekla Structures simultaneously with the launch of Tekla BIMsight. Tekla Structures 17 is ready to download on the Tekla Extranet February 15, 2011 at the latest. Tekla Structures 17 introduces many improvements for project collaboration, such as better project managing tools and even more interoperability with other software systems.


The most noticeable new features of Tekla Structures 17 are improved clash checking, organizing, viewing, snapping, commenting and project managing tools, including easy input to the free-of-charge Tekla BIMsight collaboration application.

Tekla Structures 17 provides even more interoperability than before with leading software systems, such as Unitechnik, BVBS 2.0, and BETSY for those operating in the precast concrete industry. For the steel industry there is now an improved DSTV connection to CNC machinery. Tekla Structures 17 allows higher accuracy with more customizable and automated drawings. Visualization of parts and objects in the model has been enhanced. Tekla Structures 17 functions are more and more Windows-like to make its use more intuitive and standardized. The development of user experience and assistance is continuous at Tekla. In addition, Tekla Structures 17 is now certified to support the use of 3Dconnexion mouse.
