BIMcollab BCF Manager for Navisworks Version 3.1
The BCF Managers by KUBUS add BIMcollab® connectivity as well as BCF file support to Autodesk® Navisworks®. It provides the ability to create and modify issues and communicate these through BIMcollab or via BCF files (supports version 1.0 and 2.x) directly from within Navisworks®.
Complete Issue Management Ecosystem
The BCF Managers are available for other popular BIM tools such as Navisworks, ARCHICAD, Solibri Model Checker, Tekla Structures and simplebim. Together with our web application, these form the BIMcollab® issue management ecosystem which provides an effective way to communicate BIM issues and thereby providing a more efficient workflow.
BCF files support is also included for working with BIM applications which support BCF natively such as Tekla BIMsight, DDS, MagiCAD and many more.
Issues can be created directly from the Clash Detective as well as from Saved Viewpoints.
Issues will contain title, description, status, who's responsible, recommendations or suggestions, and whether a resolution has been implemented. Using BIMcollab® will additionally allow you to add area information, milestones, deadlines as well as implement a formal approval process.
All issues can contain viewpoints with camera position and relevant objects. This allows you to zoom-to the issue-location, highlighting the problematic components in whatever BIM-tool you are.
Snapshots can also be added to an issue or a photo taken at the construction site.
Free Bimcollab® account
A BIMcollab “Free” account is included with the BCF Manager. Here issues can be published and managed in the cloud and shared with others direct from the plug-in or using the web interface.
Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).

The performance has been improved dramatically, up to 50 times faster when zooming to issues and creating them, for example from the Clash Detective. Saved viewpoints are now supported to use in viewpoints. Colored components are also saved.
