What is the difference between a ``pilot`` and a ``passenger`` ?

We offer two types of annual licences : 

  • A NEXT-BIM Explorer pilot licence: to pilot the NEXT-BIM features.
  • A NEXT-BIM Explorer Passenger licence: Allowing you to join a pilot session to collaborate with multiple Hololenses. 

What formats can I convert?

We convert .ifc files and formats supported by Navisworks ( )

Data exchange formats are .bcf or .xslx + .jpeg

How many users can collaborate in the same session ?

The collaborative mode allows you to add as many “passenger” users as you wish.

Who can use the solution ?

Our solution is easy to use for everyone. Our users are mainly BIM managers, BIM coordinators, construction managers, project managers, engineers, technicians, architects etc…


Is the solution easy to use ?

Generally NEXT-BIM users  are 100%  comfortable piloting the solution after a 2-hour training session on NEXT-BIM Explorer and a 3-hour training session on NEXT-BIM Configurator.

This is then followed by a half-day training session in the field.

The solution is easy to use for everyone with almost immediate familiarity. 

What is the software compatibility?

  • Our NEXT-BIM Explorer immersive software is solely available on Microsoft Hololens devices. 
  • NEXT-BIM Configurator can be used on Windows operating systems.

How is the solution positioned on my environment? How is the drift effect cancelled out?

Our solution has automatic, markerless and continuous scanning. No preparation of the site or the model is necessary.

How does your training work ?

We offer a personalised support service to make your experience unique.

Our training service includes a 1 on 1 call for the NEXT-BIM Explorer module of approximately 2 hours, and a 1 on 1 call for the NEXT-BIM Configurator module of approximately 3 hours.
