Don’t let your business get left behind! Make sure your estimating software covers all the BIM (Building Information Modelling) bases. CostX is renowned worldwide as a leading BIM estimating solution and is used in a variety of industries for this reason.

Not only can you view and takeoff from 3D models / BIM (including IFC and RVT) within the program, you can support 5D BIM using information from the model live-linked to user-defined rate libraries and workbooks- all within the one program. A networked environment allows instantaneous information sharing with others working on the server. CostX also imports a multitude of drawing files and external rate information, and exports to a variety of formats, taking interoperability to a new level. It’s never been easier to bring BIM into your business with CostX.
