RIB CostX® is fully integrated 2D And 3D estimating software

With BIM (Building Information Modelling) fast emerging in the construction industry and various estimating software packages claiming to support BIM, you need to make sure your software will cover all the BIM bases. RIB CostX® is renowned worldwide as a leading BIM estimating solution and is used in a variety of industries for this reason.

Not only can you view and takeoff from 3D models / BIM (including IFC) within the program, you can support 5D BIM using information from the model live-linked to user-defined rate libraries and workbooks- all within the one program. A networked environment allows instantaneous information sharing with others working on the server. RIB CostX® also imports a multitude of drawing files and external rate information, and exports to a variety of formats, taking interoperability to a new level. It’s never been easier to bring BIM into your business with RIB CostX®.
