2016 BiMUp 5D for SketchUp
Quantity Takeoff with Reporting from SketchUp models
2016 BiMUp 5D for SketchUp

Quantity Takeoff in SketchUp 6/7/8/2013/2014/2015 FREE, MAKE and PRO

BiMUp 5D performs the Quantity Takeoff (QTO) = Bill of Materials (BOM) in US or Bill of Quantities (BOQ) in EU - All at a click of a button and at any design stage.

You can perform quite complex calculations using formulas and produce as many reports as required using bespoke templates:

  • Count of Groups, Components, DCs
  • Length, Width/Depth and Height Calculation (any element - beams, columns, windows, doors etc.)
  • Area Calculation (room/floor, cladding, roof tiles, intumescent paint, soft or hard landscape etc.)
  • Volume Calculation (concrete, insulation - can be converted to packs etc.)
  • Weight Calculation based on volume or length (steel, stone etc.)
  • Conversion of Volume (to bricks or blocks etc.)
  • Windows schedule
  • Doors schedule
  • Extra Information can be embedded (manufacturer, specification, contact details, location within building etc.)
  • Labour and contingency can be added
  • Price and Taxes can be added

Because of the SketchUp’s (SU’s) flexibility we have expanded the use into more specialized area in the UK housing sector.
We are checking some other aspects of our design such as:

  • Space requirements
  • Furniture requirements
  • Daylight factor and few more

All under the heading of UK HQI - Housing Quality Indicator.

BiMUp 5D - Enriched/Embedded Data

BiMUp 5D allows you to Enrich/Embed the Data behind any SketchUp 3D models by adding required, component specific information such as:

  • Manufacturer
  • Links to your or Manufacturer website
  • Product information
  • Links to product information website
  • Specification
  • Links to product specification website
  • Special requirements in relation to installation or maintenance
  • Links to special requirements in relation to installation or maintenance website
  • Contact details
  • Location within building

BiMUp 5D - Report Format

BiMUp 5D will produce Adobe *.PDF or MS Excel *.CSV file with information associated with 3D model.

Works great but I have one thing I have not been able to figure out. Is there a way when generating a report with the dimensions to also include a picture of the component?

Hi, does it work with Windows OS only? How about MAC?

Good News...

BiMUp 5D was shortlisted for the CIOB International Innovation & Research Awards 2015 in the Digital Innovation Award category.

Bonjour,

Un petit langage-pack FR pour les amis français, cela serai bien. dans l'avenir peut-être, sile plugin se diffuse bien!

Merci, à bientôt

Hello,

A small FR language pack for French friends, it'll be fine. in the future perhaps, sile plugin spreads well!

Thanks see you soon

Alexis C.'s picture

+ 1 Totally agree

Thank you for the excellent plug-in !
But with a french (and others) langage pack, it will be GREAT ;)
Thank you in advance

Best regards to all the team,

Hi Guys,
Mac version is a must. please, please, please,.. I don't know anyone who uses windows anymore.
I use sketch up because of the fact it is not as heavy graphic wise as Archicad, Revit etc.

I run a construction company and we design our own houses and export to Layout. we send these plans out to contractors for pricing. This plugin would be perfect for us.

I'm sure there are thousands of us out there on macs who have been hanging out for a plugin just like this. (and have no intention of ever going back to windows)

Regards

David

Dear David B,

At the moment we are not planning a Mac version.
You can always install Windows (through Boot Camp) on Mac as most of Revit users are doing at the moment to get the benefit of BiMUp's function and MAC's power.

Any plans for a Mac version yet??

BiMUp Team's picture

With regards to the Mac version - at the moment we are not planning a Mac version.

For PC users - we are planning to publish completely new set of HD clips with voice over - we will try to release one clip per week with the first available next week. Some of them will follow SketchUp's format called 'Tips and Tricks from Extension Creators'. We have some interesting projects to show.

Are you thinking to release this for Mac???
Even if plug-in does not work on Windows 7.
You have skipped "Alpha" phase!

I signed up and downloaded the program. Starting SU I got the message the BIMUP trail period was ended. Before I even started using the program. I then purchaced the program, but got no licence key och activation code. A really poor way of attracting customers.

And your Youtube videos have no sound!!!
