iConstruct 2013: The Most Powerful BIM Tool Yet
iConstruct 2013 is now available and ready to deliver increased efficiency and quick results in an easy to use format. The upgraded user interface has a host of new and enhanced features making it the most manageable and multi-user product yet. Featuring a range of new modules and options, iConstruct 2013 is more powerful than ever before, which means even greater project solutions and benefits.
With support for Navisworks 2013, the latest iConstruct release offers the following:
A powerful new tool providing the flexibility to reorganize the structure of your models to suit your specific needs and leverage the maximum advantage from iConstruct. Select a property to group by and this tool will export a new reordered nwd file. Optionally ignore hidden geometry to create 'crops' of models, or merge the contents of groups to reduce the number of objects in the model.
Manage your viewpoints and comments from one centralized location with iConstruct ReviewTRACK. ReviewTRACK allows multiple users to simultaneously share a Navisworks model's viewpoints hierarchy and comments from remote sites across the internet via a data source. Instantly re-build viewpoints with redline markups, comments plus as many custom fields as you want.
Center of Gravity
A new tool for construction professionals allows an accurate Center of Gravity to be calculated and displayed in the model for dimensioning using Navisworks redline markup tools and producing reports via iConstruct's Export View report engine. Given accurate geometry and nominating a mass property, this routine calculates the center of gravity for estimation purposes prior to site work.
Clash Results Manager
Improve the efficiency of managing clash results with this tool which complements Navisworks Clash Detective to easily isolate clashes in particular sections of a model by clash status or level. Clashes can also be sorted by clash count, so objects with the highest clash counts can be investigated first. Finally the clash information can be exported to Excel or alternatively registered as a view with iConstruct ReviewTRACK for further management.
Revit Data Switchback
Enable bi-directional communications with your Revit models by appending user data from a Navisworks model back into the native Revit model. Export your model to pass to subcontractors or other 3rd parties, have their data appended to the Navisworks model and then import back into Revit - useful for notes taken on site, hold notifications, clash management etc.
