Frequently asked questions about the License- and Price model


1. From which license is the import and export for Excel files possible?

The import and export of Excel tables is possible from the "S+" license model. This applies to all areas of the BIMQ user interface. An exception to this is the Excel export of the requirements table. The exported table shows a 1: 1 reproduction of the view from the area "Requirements" and is available from the license model "M". The Excel export of requirements offers an interesting possibility to pass on information to project participants who do not have access to the BIMQ platform. 

2. Do different software templates have to be booked separately?


Software templates can be created in BIMQ regardless of the booked license model. BIMQ currently supports the generation of software templates for the products ArchiCAD, Revit, ProVI and Allplan. All defined requirements, a specific project phase and application, are exported for the selected software as a text file or in XML format. These files can then be imported into the corresponding software and thus facilitate the dynamic process of information management. 

A definition of other software products such as Vectorworks or Civil 3D is also possible. However, no software templates can currently be created for these products. All defined requirements are therefore only documented in the PDF report, which is also generated from BIMQ. 

The development of new interfaces for the implementation of additional software products is a central task of the BIMQ research team. This results in a constant expansion of our product range. 

3. Can the requirements of the software templates created be checked?

All requirements that are generated as a template for the preferred architecture software can also be checked. For this purpose, BIMQ provides several interfaces for importing various checking tools and model viewers. The software products Solibri Model Checker, Desite MD and BIMcollab ZOOM are currently supported. Output of files in mvdXML format is also possible and can be imported into simpleBIM, for example. The BIMcollab ZOOM software interface also offers interesting options for testing in various categories. Further information can be found in the "News BIMQ V2.2". 

4. What services are offered in online training?

 The AEC3 team offers a two-hour basic training from the "S+" license model and a four-hour basic training from "M". The basic training takes place online and is carried out by one of our BIM experts. The two-hour online training focuses primarily on working with the cloud-based data management software BIMQ. Working and functional modes are explained and it is shown how reports, software templates or checking rules are created. The four-hour basic training is divided into two slots and is carried out on two separate dates. The first appointment corresponds to the online training of the "S+" license model. In the second appointment, the knowledge acquired is consolidated and deepened. The focus here is on answering questions and it is shown how the generated software templates are imported into ArchiCAD, Revit, Allplan or ProVI. Our BIM experts have a large and well-founded knowledge in dealing with the corresponding architecture software. This allows errors to be avoided and settings to be optimized. It will be also shown how the imported data can be checked or how an error correction takes place.
