One of the key reasons for the increasing interest in CostX is its ability to work with BIM. As BIM becomes of more importance to the construction industry, people need to know that their estimating solution will be able to support them on the BIM projects they receive. CostX has a range of BIM compatible features, including support for Revit BIM files and IFCs, ability to automatically extract quantities or manually measure from the model, ability to add information to the model, ability to link 2D drawings to the BIM, and more. In addition, a variety of 2D drawings (scanned, PDF, CAD and more) are still supported.
