The app gives even those without BIM or CAD capabilities a possibility contribute to BIM projects. Using Tekla BIMsight Note is as easy as sending a text message or email. In the office and in the middle of mud and dust misconceptions are less likely to happen if you can actually see an image of the problematic part that needs to be discussed. Now a tool for seeing and discussing the exact matter fits into your pocket.
