iConstruct 2016:  Leading the way in BIM Technology

iConstruct 2016 is an advanced BIM Management Solution that utilizes the collaboration and review technology provided by Autodesk Navisworks. A powerful information management tool, iConstruct enables the vast array of information stored in the latest generation of BIM models to be extracted, organized and used in an efficient and logical way. 

In collaboration with Autodesk Navisworks, iConstruct allows information stored in BIM models and project management systems to be extracted, organized and integrated into one intelligent, multi-layered virtual model. iConstruct models transform a 3D visual with the critical 4th and 5th dimensions of time and cost. This means greater accuracy, powerful reporting, lower costs, and scheduling benefits across any construction project.

 

The latest iConstruct release offers the following key features:

Smart IFC Exporter V2.0

Zone Tools

A revolutionary new tool allowing the user to apply properties from object volumes such as room geometry to the objects contained within the volume. This module leverages the nVidia® CUDA® GPU platform in ‘Quick’ or ‘Intensive’ modes to improve the performance of calculating the room contents when using a compatible nVidia® card 
and driver.

 

Model Compiler

Model Compiler

A new feature designed for model reviewers utilizing Navisworks and needing the ability to load models in each area of a project. Model Compiler bases itself on a user-customizable excel file to organize model paths into a user-friendly UI. Including maps support for advanced location visualization.


 


Some of the enhancements to the existing modules:

Smart IFC Exporter V2.0

Clash Manager

Clash Manager has been further improved in this release with significant performance gains when using proximity grouping and general loading of Revit models when using the new ‘Exclude Attributes’ feature. Also performance improvements when creating viewpoints with ‘Auto Reveal’ enabled.
 

Model Compiler

ReConstruct

​​A breakthrough enhancement for ReConstruct in response to user requests is the support of section planes/box, the exported geometry is hard-clipped against the section for a much cleaner model. A new ‘Turbo Mode’ in the BIMFlow activity results in approx. 30% faster file creation.
