About Tekla BIMsight


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.

Reliable software for structural designs.

Overall experience while using this software were better than using our traditional method in designing a structure it reduces our work load and can easily edit the parts that have been misplace.

Pros

I like using this software especially when I have to design a certain building. And as well as making computation of loads that I will have to apply. It's easy to use and convenient in presenting for meetings of what building or structure that you and your team were planning to build.

Cons

Maybe the least thing of this software was you have to be knowledgeable first in using this 3D software. If your not familiar or it is your first time using it, you'll encounter a lot of trial and error. and supervision is advice when using it as well.

In the line of my job, I used this software everyday. It is easy to operate and easy to navigate...

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.

At first, it's a little bit confusing to use but it helps me a lot in my building presentation.

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.

One of the best 3D drafting 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.

Great structural steel modeling software

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.

They understand the world of construction

This software takes me step by step throughout the construction process helping to program each task with precision, efficiency and reliability. There can be no other result than optimal quality and significant savings of resources and time.

Pros

Even though a construction project can be seen as a whole, in reality it is a lot of processes that must be analyzed separately and Concrete Contractors do it for me, saving me a lot of headaches and money.

Cons


Actually I like to do things the old way and I would like to say that this can not replace the valuable experience of the construction worker, but the reality is that this valuable work tool has no weaknesses.

Tekla BIMsight it's an easier BIM viewer that allows to understand building's geometry.

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.

Tekla BIM Sight is a great visual review tool

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

Gets the job done!

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
