BIMcollab BCF Manager for Revit Version 3.1

From the Autodesk App Store:

About This Version

Version 3.1, 4/20/2017
  • The new Revit add-on supports working in shared projects with multiple users. 
  • Handles Survey points correctly in projects with shared coordinates.
  • Dockable in Revit 2017 and later.
  • All issue properties and all features found in the web application (such as notify) are supported in all BCF managers. 
  • The new approval process is supported 
  • The issue-filter is extended with Area.


The BCF Managers by KUBUS add BIMcollab® connectivity as well as BCF file support to Autodesk® Revit®. It provides the ability to create and modify issues and communicate these through BIMcollab or via BCF files (supports version 1.0 and 2.x) directly from within Revit®.

Complete Issue Management Ecosystem

The BCF Managers are available for other popular BIM tools such as Navisworks, ARCHICAD, Solibri Model Checker, Tekla Structures and simplebim. Together with our web application, these form the BIMcollab® issue management ecosystem which provides an effective way to communicate BIM issues and thereby providing a more efficient workflow.

BCF files support is also included for working with BIM applications which support BCF natively such as Tekla BIMsight, DDS, MagiCAD and many more.

Issues will contain title, description, status, who's responsible, recommendations or suggestions, and whether a resolution has been implemented. Using BIMcollab® will additionally allow you to add area information, milestones, deadlines as well as implement a formal approval process.

All issues can contain viewpoints with camera position and relevant objects. This allows you to zoom-to the issue-location, highlighting the problematic components in whatever BIM-tool you are.

Snapshots can also be added to an issue or a photo taken at the construction site.

Free Bimcollab® account

A BIMcollab “Free” account is included with the BCF Manager. Here issues can be published and managed in the cloud and shared with others direct from the plug-in or using the web interface.

Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).

The BIMcollab BCF Manager for Revit add-in is brought to you by KUBUS BV. It's free. Pricing for the BIMcollab service is as follows:

This add-in is compatible with Revit 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2014.

There's more information available on the Autodesk App Store.
