It is the first calculation software in the world that perfectly integrates elec calc ™, electrical calculation software used in sizing projects, in an Open BIM process. With elec calc ™ BIM, the electrician can base his calculations on a digital model in IFC 4 format, generated by the various 3D architecture software (Revit, ArchiCAD, SketchUp…).
elec calc™ BIM offers unique cable routing possibilities. The user calculates the cable lengths which are generated in the digital model. Multiple simulations can be performed to compare routing scenarios. The 3D model allows the detection of conflicts and the BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) technology, which is integrated into the software, makes it possible to manage communication and alerts with other trades. For REVIT users, the elec calc™ BIM plug-in optimizes collaboration between the two software. Compatibility with electrical objects available on the BIM&CO platform is also an important asset for the integration and calculation of manufacturers' products.
