bimsync is about ...

Powerful visualizations
Visualization of information is a core feature of bimsync. Combine our high performance 3D viewer with auto generated 2D floor plans to get a full overview of all of the models in your project.

Collaborating on issues
Add, import, organize and collaborate on issues. We support all of the BCF versions as well as the BCF API.

Useful dashboards and stats
Get a quick overview of the latest updates and changes as well as key performance indicators for your project.

Sharing information
Share models, drawings and documents with other project members. We keep track of revisions and changes.

Model centric information handling
We believe the best possible structure for the documents and drawings in a project is the BIM itself. Attach documents, issues, classifications and product information directly to the BIM objects.

Connecting your BIM to external information
Extend your projects with libraries. Libraries let you link BIM objects to external sources. For example documents in Dropbox, products in CoBuilder or links to any website.

Notifications and updates
Select what you want to be notified about and follow the project online, by emails or direct notifications sent to Slack.

Unlimited members and teams
 Invite anyone you like into your projects. All they need is access to a browser.

Intuitive APIs and toolkits
Embed 3D or 2D viewers in websites or other software and get access to all of your BIM data through our APIs. bimsync is among the first to offer access to issues through the standardized buildingSMART BCF API.
