What's BIM Track?

BIM Track is a web-based collaboration platform that empowers your team with better BIM coordination workflows. BIM Track becomes a central location for all the information, issues, and communications that team members need for a project: from design to construction. With information at your fingertips, you can review the project design at anytime, anywhere, either from a desktop or mobile device using a web browser.

BIM Track is intuitive and easy to use, ensuring quick onboarding and minimal training for users of all levels. In fact, even the most technology-phobic users become major fans of all that BIM Track has to offer!

BIM Track is an OpenBIM workflow solution and supports both IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) and BCF (BIM Collaboration Format).

BIM Track has 5 key features to help your next project:

01. Communication

BIM Track's easy-to-use issue tracking features help teams to get work done faster. BIM Track centralizes all BIM coordination information in one place and eliminates the inefficient use of email. Speed up collaboration, increase across-the-board understanding, and align the work of every team member with BIM Track.

BIM Track Offers:

  • Easy issue management
  • Location-based issue tracking for in-context discussion: view all issues in the model
  • Associating model elements toissues, without weighing down your models
  • Bi-directional issue tracking workflows
  • Cross-platform communication
  • Real-time notification system
  • Markup issues from models or plans on smart screenshots which can be retrieved in 2D and 3D
  • Markup issues from models or plans on smart screenshots which can be retrieved in 2D and 3D

02. Web platform

BIM Track’s web platform is a browser-based workspace where all of your projects' real-time issue information can be accessed by the team. The BIM Track web viewer allows you to import, display and navigate several IFC models from different BIM/CAD authoring software to create a federated model. You can also import 2D plans from PDFs and overlay them with the models. This gives your chosen users access to  an issue’s full context in the model, including all details, such as due date, person assigned, comments and much more. No expensive authoring software required.

  • BIM Track’s web platform is ideally suited for those acting as PM on a project like GCs or experienced owners. Users can see overall issue resolution progress, with the ability to drill down to issue specifics as required.
  • A user-friendly issue list with classification features makes it easy to prioritize and organize issues & helps you engage more people in the BIM process.
  • BIM Track’s web viewer is an IFC viewer where model management takes place, with all revisions of your plans and models in one place. You can open any revision to see its' original design state at that time and issues evolution can be seen in the different versions of the model and plans.
  • Use on the go: BIM Track’s web viewer can be accessed on any computer, tablet or handheld device with an internet connection. No software, no installs, and no complex IT deployment is required to get started.

03. Software Integration

Stay in your usual BIM software to track issues; use BIM Track directly in industry-leading design & clash detection software including Revit, Navisworks and Tekla Structures. BIM Track’s coordinates-based issues save you time by bringing you straight to the issue, with all of its’ data. Stop wasting time on non-interoperable software; BIM Track supports standard open file formats like IFC and BCF. You can also make sure hard-earned data isn’t lost using our API to connect your own custom systems or software programs such as Microsoft Power BI with BIM Track.
