BIMcloud

BIMcloud allows secure, real-time collaboration between project team members regardless of the size or complexity of the project, the location of the offices, or the speed of the Internet connection. BIMcloud provides a platform for Teamwork projects with multiple members to work on a model and its documentation, both within the office and through the Internet.

Unlike other solutions on the market, only changes in the model are synchronised with the BIMcloud, dramatically reducing the amount of data being transferred. By reducing the file size of these interactions, your team can work together in real-time across your network and through standard internet connections from virtually anywhere in the world.

Roles and responsibilities

Fine-tune permissions for all team members globally or for a particular project, for the assignment of a task, work spaces and project administration.

Working as a team

A flexible instant reservation system with colour-coded workspaces enables multiple team members to work on a building model simultaneously while avoiding access right issues and conflicts.

Overcome data transfer issues

When transferring large amounts of data across a network, it can result in bottlenecks, slow data transfer and inefficient project workflow. With BIMcloud, only changed elements are transmitted to the central model from the local cache (delta server technology) resulting in reduced network traffic and increased working speed.

Real-time communication

Work from anywhere, without missing a beat. Instant messaging allows communication between all team members wherever their location, and to assign tasks to other members of the team. Instant messaging between Archicad and BIMx means you’ll never lose track of notes or changes to the model wherever you are.

Data security and project roll-back

Restore or revert to a scheduled backup or cached copy of the project at any time, to minimise reworking.
