  • Support for new model types: SketchUp (.skp), STEP and IGES
  • New supported languages:
    • Chinese (traditional)
    • Korean
    • Russian

Tekla BIMsight 1.9 strengthens design-build-operate (DBO) lifecycle

Tekla BIMsight now supports Trimble SketchUp (.skp) models to improve the design coordination process and BIM collaboration. This addition strengthens the links between two of the key software applications in the design-build-operate (DBO) portfolio offered by Trimble Buildings – a Trimble segment focused on making the construction industry significantly more productive through advanced, accessible, intuitive technologies for all project stakeholders.  

Improvements for concrete professionals

Tekla BIMsight serves all disciplines of the construction industry and this version delivers new functionalities for concrete construction professionals - engineers, fabricators and contractors. Thus some of the biggest new features of version 1.9 are selecting and measuring rebar and running conflict checks with reinforcement models.
