Tekla BIMsight has proven a useful tool for all building and construction disciplines, including architects, to collaborate by and share. Built on Tekla's advanced modeling technology and revolutionizing the way companies license and utilize 3D modeling solutions for construction, latest version Tekla BIMsight 1.2 is still offered as a free downloadable application. 

Everyone from small to large construction companies can download Tekla BIMsight for free and begin to utilize their design files for 3D project collaboration purposes, for example, to detect clashes. Most importantly, with the software its users will be able to easily share these coordinated models necessary to collaborate with team members effectively.
