BIMcrunch sponsors Exactal have released a new video explaining the power of their estimation software, CostX.

CostX can be used in-conjunction with Building Information Modelling software to generate accurate, fast and smart complete BIM estimates by simply inserting a BIM model into CostX and extracting object properties. After a few short steps, quantities are generated instantaneously.

CostX can also be used to walkthrough a building without the need for a BIM software platform – a nifty extra functionality indeed!

The video also demonstrates CostX’s customisable report writer, electronic take-off tools, subcontractor comparison system and ‘View in 3D’ feature.

Take a look at the highly informative video below.
