HELSINKI, February 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To make BIM a tool for everybody, 3D modeling software provider Tekla launches BIM application for model-based collaboration. Tekla BIMsight is for everyone in the industry to share information for free. Now contractors, designers, architects, MEP detailers, fabricators and anyone who is interested can combine models, check for clashes, perform spatial coordination, and collaborate using Tekla BIMsight.
Tekla BIMsight allows anyone to combine and review building information models from all project team members. Everyone can check these models using clash management routines as well as manage and assign those clashes. Using the industry standard IFC format, Tekla BIMsight provides a 3D communication platform that makes sharing models and information clear and easy. And the real benefit - it is free.
"Tekla's mission is to enable BIM for everyone, multiplying the users' potential to think and achieve big in their projects and businesses," explains Tekla Inc. Managing Director Hans Ehrnrooth. "Leveraging BIM as a centralized process rather than 'just a 3D model' requires cooperation and goodwill between the construction disciplines."
Tekla BIMsight 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.

With its software, Tekla Corporation drives the evolution of digital information models and provides thus more and more competitive advantage to the construction and infrastructure industries. Tekla has customers in nearly 100 countries, offices in 15 countries, and a worldwide partner network. The company was established in 1966.
With an ambition to multiply its customers' potential to think and achieve big, Tekla provides an accurate, detailed, and data-rich 3D BIM (Building Information Modeling) software environment that can be shared by contractors, structural engineers, steel detailers and fabricators, as well as concrete detailers and manufacturers. The highly detailed as-built structural models created, combined and distributed with Tekla BIM software enable the highest level of constructability and production control. Centralizing building information into the model allows for more collaborative and integrated project management and delivery. This translates into increased productivity and elimination of waste, thus making construction and buildings more sustainable.
