Using CG Visions’ BIM Pipeline™, BuilderMT users can now move design and option data from CAD and BIM systems directly into BuilderMT Estimating, even for home plans heavily customized in the options process.
CG Visions’ BIM Pipeline™ uses model dimensions to translate a home builder’s designs into the products the builder needs to build that home. Those products can then automatically appear in BuilderMT, where their data populates BuilderMT’s purchasing system, creating accurate purchase orders in the process.
BuilderMT purchase orders are tied to real-time pricing, so BIM Pipeline / BuilderMT users can accurately determine the costs of any home, even if they are building it for the first time.
With CG Visions’ BIM Pipeline, home builders can work entirely in digital design environments, through design programs like eTakeoff, PlanSwift, VisionREZ, Revit, AutoCAD and Vertex, saving time that used to go to redrawing plans or manually creating purchase orders to calculate costs.
