Tekla BIMsight is a Windows-based construction collaboration solution for architects and construction industry professionals.

Tekla BIMsight lets users combine 3D models, add projects and allows project participants to identify or resolve conflicts in the design phase. Construction managers can also avoid conflicts by using an automated clash-detection tool.

Tekla BIMsight enables users to look deeper into 3D models by using a clip planes feature. Users can also take notes for issues and sort them by type.

The vendor also provides Tekla BIMsight Note, which is a mobile version of the solution and can be accessed on Android and iOS devices. Mobile app users can take notes from the construction site and then share them with other team members by using Dropbox or email. Support is offered via online forum and email.

    Pros

    Taking complex heavy models and allowing you to view on any lightweight machine with ease

    Cons

    Although the measuring tool is good, it would be great to be able to print a sectional view or have a section view with a limited far clip offset

    Pros

    This software does not require high specifications of pc and still run smoothly. The color render is like how you literally modeled on Tekla Steel modeling. Aside from the fact that it can be easily operate, bimsight can be navigate easily even you are not familiar with it.

    Cons

    I can't see any cons about this software. I will always choose this software than any other model viewer software.

    Draft the most accurate structural steel 3D model and get benefit of the reporting system.

    Pros

    If you want to make the most accurate 3D BIM, especifically when it comes with steel structure, this is the best want to use. You can model all the details of a structural steel building not only in a 3D format, but a comprehensive report that can be utilized as bill of quantity for and valuable for making any purchase order.

    Cons

    Although the software has many advantages, but in order to make an accurate draft, you need to spend time on learning the software and its tricks.

    It helps you in your presentation and design and materialize your projects.

    Pros

    This software helps the professionals in construction industries to solve and adjust their errors that is already in its design phase. And it can collaborate in any BIM software and combine them to produce one project. This software has a automated clash detection feature that can apply to all your models and pin point conflicts to help engineers.

    Cons

    A training is needed when you use this as a medium in structural design. And I notice in this software that, only solid shape items are can be cut or attached to another part. And also when you split the imported items it tends to create a duplicate and it is confusing when multiple splits are created.

    The coordination review is the best use that I can do with this software.

    Pros

    The power of the software are the IFC viewer and project control operations. It's very easy to program clashset between the elements and write the labels on the objects.

    Cons

    Clash detection report it's too complicate to governate but anyway it's clear. In my opinion, apart from this, the software has no defects.

    Pros

    Tekla Bimsight is great when hardware resources are limited, and peak framerate visuals are desired.

    Cons

    Some of the tracking or scaling / dimensioning tools may take multiple tries to get used though, though they are very accurate

    For the areas of the software that i have learned to use, it benefits me greatly. The time it takes to do the same work in a 2D software such as AutoCad is unbelievable. A simple beam/column setup or handrail for a set of stairs can be done in minutes rather than hours or days. Plus, the ability to export machine files such as NC1 and DXF has increased the speed of our shop.

    Pros

    The community items have impressed me the most. You don't have to custom model a lot of items due to the community has usually already done it and uploaded it for your usse.

    Cons

    Like any software, there is a learning curve. This one seems to be a larger curve than most. There are a lot of aspects to this software and multiple layers that have to be gone through to be able to understand how a single item operates.
