BiMUp Ltd’s first product, is called BiMUp 5D which directly relates to the day-to-day use of BiM. It is simple, but quite remarkable, software that enables quantities to be taken off any SketchUp model (The technicalities of this are contained in the product details and demonstrated in the video presentations).
We have brought this to market because it is the crucial ‘missing part of the jigsaw’ that enables BiM using SketchUp to become a reality.
It means that cost-modelling can be auto-generated from the earliest design models and that each time there is a change, the spreadsheets are also updated automatically.
We are aware that this is quite a provocative step. It may mean that 95% of construction projects can be BiM Compliant without the need for the expensive software, hardware and training implications of the alternatives.
Because of the inherent adaptability of SketchUp and the millions of users, we consider
that it will only be a matter of time before the ‘missing 5%’ is also covered.
BiMUp 5D - Enriched/Embedded Data
BiMUp 5D allows you to Enrich/Embed the Data behind any SketchUp 3D models by adding any required, component specific information such as:
BiMUp 5D - Quantity Take Off
BiMUp 5D performs the Quantity Take Off (QTO) = BOM in US or BOQ in EU/UK
All at a click of a button and at any design stage.
You can perform quite complex calculations using formulas and produce as many reports as required using bespoke templates:* Count of Groups, Components, DCs
and many, many more...
Because of the SketchUp’s (SU’s) flexibility we have expanded the use into more specialized area in the UK housing sector.
We are checking some other aspects of our design such as:
All under the heading of HQI - Housing Quality Indicator.
