VIMTREK takes BIM to the next level of creating a revolutionary visualization and collaboration tool which produces a fully immersive, easily navigable, interactive Visual Information Model (VIM) environments from Revit BIM projects.
VIMtrek’s VIM Viewer, built on state of the art Gaming Technology, provides a virtual 3D Repository of building data which can be used for collaboration between the building’s Owner, Architect, Engineers and Contractors. VIMtrek is state of the art technology and a game changer for companies looking to save big money on construction time and change orders, create Sustainability and Whole Life Cycle Management. This Technology can be used for real time collaboration between Owners and other stakeholders to bridge communication gaps, while collaborating on a project in real time. VIMtrek offers complete immersion in the building environment and enables Owners, Architects and Stakeholders the ability to work smarter and more efficiently together within a single environment. VIMtrek’s application is able to rapidly convert Autodesk Revit® designs into immersive, beautifully rendered, and interactive environments, and then share these locally or over the Internet. VIMtrek changes the use of 3-D technology and makes it part of the daily creative process. Through rapid 3D rendering, VIMtrek’ offers a new way for Owners and the AEC industry, to experience Sustainability, cost effective and efficient buildings and Whole Life cycle efficiency. VIMtrek will dramatically improve collaboration while working towards lean and green principals.
