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

  • 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

Necessary connectivity properties of dynamic components to databases. Without the ability to update the properties of dynamic components from DB, BIMUp5d useless toy.

Thank you for taking the time to create so many videos. However without narration it is pretty hard to follow what is happening. I would love to hear the explaination that goes with it.

We generate drawings in Autocad, as DWGs. Is it possible to import these DWGs into Sketchup and get our Bills of Quantities, or would we have to fully re-draw in sketchup to get this plugin to work?

BiMUp 5D needs Groups or/and Components.

1. When 2D AutoCAD *.dwg is imported it is just a bunch of lines (no text, no dims, no line type).
2. When 2D AutoCAD *.dwg with AutoCAD blocks is imported, SketchUp will see them as Components including your block naming.
3. When 3D AutoCAD *.dwg with 3D Solids is imported, SketchUp will see them as Groups.

There is slightly more work to be done when imported to SketchUp from other CAD software, but some quantifying can be done immediately for example: Count and Volume.

Volume is quite interesting because it can be converted to the amount of bricks, blocks, insulation and so on.

We have tested BiMUp 5D with AutoCAD and ArchiCAD 3D models imported to SU and the results are impressive.
All it's down to the SketchUp's PRO importer which translates those models to Groups or/and Components.

BiMUp 5D was designed to quantify our early design stage models drawn is SketchUp PRO or FREE/Make.
You can easily try our 14 days, fully functional trial version of BiMUp 5D and see if it would work for you.

Wish I can say good things about this plugin, but there is no Mac version.....Please release Mac version soon.

Also considering PlusSpec. See who releases Mac version first.

You may want to mention somewhere in your literature that this plugin is only for PC.

Would love a Mac version some day.

1. The default path for BiMUp 5D installation with SketchUp 6, 7 or 8 is:
C:\Program Files\Google\and your relevant SketchUp installation

2. If you have SketchUp Make or 2013 please navigate to the relevant path during BiMUp 5D installation which is:
C:\Program Files\SketchUp\and your relevant SketchUp installation
