1.GETTING STARTED

1.1.Introduction

Welcome to BIMCRONE! The BIMCRONE platform combines the three-dimensional component of construction projects. These components are architectural project drawings with business plan, quantity and cost data. BIMCRONE aims to assist decision support processes by keeping the data flow accurate and up-to-date throughout the project.

With the data stored in a central database, all disciplines can access the same model and partially change them. The different teams of the project can be accessed from a single point and the most up-to-date version of the project.

By adding cost and time data to the architectural project, BIMCRONE permanently links and tracks the effects of these three important components throughout the project lifecycle. It allows the project to be animated in three dimensions with time and cost-amount information.

It is a control tool that will transfer the 2-dimensional Revit project to 3 dimensions and ensure that the points that cannot be joined correctly in the project are visible and corrected.
