Vico Office 4.2 is virtual construction software, augmenting 3D models with constructability analysis and coordination, location-based quantity takeoff, 4D (time) scheduling and production control, and 5D (cost) estimating that has just been released. This software is part of Trimble’s new data integration capabilities between a variety of its planning, estimating and management software applications.
See what the new interface between Tekla and Vico looks like in this video, narrated by Marcel Broekmaat, Market Manager of Project Controls, with Trimble Buildings’ General Contractor Division:
Updated Publishers: Tekla Structures 19, Revit 2014, AutoCAD MEP 2014, and AutoCAD Architecture 2014 are supported by new Vico Office publishers.
The Tekla publisher has been improved: you can now publish filtered views, which lets you only publish those parts of the model that have been completed; and it has added support for additional properties that are included in the publish operation. The Model Organizer information is included in the publisher to make it easy to prepare your model for use in Vico Office.
For all BIM formats, Trimble is introducing the ability to change the order in which properties are used to create Takeoff Items.
