BIM is not just a software. What is BIM? it is a process and a software. BIM tools interface design now has some capability to import and export models from sketchUp in a user friendly way. Google sketchUp and BIM have the ability to undertake early performance analysis on the designers model and then bring the model forward into a more intelligent analysis environment without reproducing the drawing.

The full realisation of the process is continuing and will change the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry (AEC).
