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.

  • Seems to me, between price and features, that Tekla is throwing down the IFC and price gauntlet.

  • It’s built around IFC, which is awesome. We need more programs that put neutral source IFC collaboration as a priority. Down with the walled gardens. It’s time to share.
