Frequently Asked Questions
BIM is made available to clients on a per-project basis.
Speak to your Aconex representative to discuss BIM activation on your project.
In Aconex BIM, the design team shares models with rest of the project team through model “stacks”.
You’ll create a model stack for each model. Each stack contains the current version of the model, plus any previous versions.
You can load the current version of the model in the 3D BIM viewer, but if you need to view previous versions, you can download them from the model stack. You’ll need to upload these downloaded models back into the model stack to view them, as the viewer only shows the current versions of each model.
BIM supports IFC 2x3. So if your software can export to IFC 2x3, you will be able to view your models in Aconex.
You can. Discuss this with your Aconex representative to configure the setup for your project.
No, currently models are uploaded one by one.
Not yet. If you want to alert colleagues to a new version of a model, you can send them project mail using BIM or Aconex mail.
If your recipient’s organization hasn’t had BIM enabled yet, they’ll need to contact their Aconex representative to do so. Until then, they won’t be able to view models in Connected BIM.
