Release news Naviate Cloud solutions

Naviate Simple BIM 10

Updates include Smart Derived Objects, Boxify, and Colorize.

Smart Derived Objects

Derive objects and data from original models.

Simple BIM 10 - Smart Derived Objects

  • Automatically create new derived objects based on quantities, object clashes, and existing geometry
  • Use their own geometry to visualize for example space coverings, formwork, or even duct, pipe, and electrical penetrations
  • Use their data, for example, in production planning and scheduling, cost estimating, tendering, procurement, or even monitoring, and managing the interior works of a project
  • Export derived objects to IFC for further use in any IFC supporting application

Boxify - Geometry simplification

Boxify simplifies object geometries in a smart way and thus reduces the model size of unnecessary detailed models significantly.


Colorize anywhere

Redesigned Colorize functionality. You can colorize basically any data in Simple BIMs UI. All the basic Palettes support these features: Objects, Properties, Containment, and Table.

SImple BIM 10 Colorize anywhere

  • Use colors in BIM models to make it easy to understand and read the model data
  • Colorize based on any data: object classes, object types, object groups, systems, classifications, containment, or even building element properties of any type
  • Export colorization back to the IFC so it can be used in any downstream application later in the project

Quantify Calculations (QTO)

New ways to calculate quantities.

Naviate Simple BIM 10 - Quantify Calculations (QTO)

  • Calculate any quantity to any selected set of objects, instead of being restricted by the object classes
  • Calculate any quantity to different levels of object hierarchy – for assemblies and/or parts
  • Calculate quantities for space surfaces
  • Calculate the quantities needed for complex geometries like hollow-core slabs and corrugated iron
  • Create derived objects based on the quantities

Automate BIM Model Data Exporting

Minimize the size of BIM models.

Naviate Simple BIM 10 - Data Export

  • Decrease the model size by up to 90 percent of the original
  • Simplify the selected object geometries to boxes
  • Export back to IFC and use in any downstream device or application

Automation Scripts

Write automation scripts.

  • Batch process models and export the data automatically formatted
  • Connect BIM data and Excel together to create Bimsheets to automate workflows
  • Export data to CSV files
  • Gather data like product information from other parties and enrich model data in an automated way from a Bimsheet
