Take your model on-site with mobile devices

There is also a separate tool for easy communication: Tekla BIMsight Note for iOS and Android.
Easy to get - Easy to learn - Easy to use
Being free and easy to learn, Tekla BIMsight couldn't be more suitable for educational institutions and students as well. Tekla BIMsight is the easiest way for academics and teachers to introduce their students to model-based design coordination.
I am quite impressed by Tekla BIMsight. Tekla manages to provide a fully functional model review solution without even making us pay for it, which is pretty remarkable in this market.
...the deal is that a 3D modeling software vendor is now distributing a powerful, free tool that users say rivals the for-a-price alternatives.
Tekla seems to be responding to users’ wishes on this product and I think it will continue to see nice improvements.
