  • Visualize data as 2D or 3D overview
  • Full synchronization with latest design iterations
  • Instantaneous feedback
  • Report the results to relevant institutions or building owner
  • Enhance internal collaboration and external communication

Financial Simulator
Fast, accurate and reliable financial analysis for better decision-making.
  • The plugin evaluates construction costs updating as you change the design
  • See the business case of the building – annual cashflow, Return on Investment and Net Present Value
  • Create cost scenarios for different design options

Financial Simulator of Xinaps enables the AEC professional to estimate the cost and profitability of the building and see how changes in design affect it. Is also makes it possible to present cost scenarios options to the building owner, helps making  well-informed decisions regarding design.
