Collectus is intentionally designed with building owners and facility managers in mind.
FREMONT, CA: CDV Systems and 26 Degrees Software trumpet the release of Collectus, a cloud-powered library of BIM Graphic, Asset & Project Management Standard for Revit customers in the AEC&O Industry. As an application used within Revit and fulled by 26 Degrees Software, the makers of ViewAQC, Collectus offers an all trades imperial and metric online library of thousands of families and types. Project templates, family templates, design, documentation schedules, and instructional documentation make Collectus the complete Revit Standards Package for BIM, from conceptual design to facility management.
Since 2005, the CDV Systems Revit Implementation Package has been developed, tested, purchased, and successfully deployed by the most prestigious AEC&O firms on hundreds of millions of SF of BIM projects across the world. Collectus marks the existing CDV Systems Revit Implementation Package culmination along with a 40 percent increase in recently created family content and documentation. The entire online package is developed for ease of use, mitigating model complexity, and maximizing shared parameter data across all project trade disciplines using a single, standardized shared parameter data set.
Instead of spending a long time building and maintaining BIM content and project templates, Collectus offers BIM project team members immediate access to a robust and vetted BIM standards package for their building model design, construction, post-construction, and Operations and Maintenance Revit needs.
For projects using Revit 2019, 2020, and 2021, Collectus is available. Content within this cloud platform is maintained and supported for future Revit versions and comprises submission requests for new and additional content directly within the user interface. These requests are offered through a yearly support contract included with the initial purchase and can integrate new families and/or types, parameter sets, schedules, and modifications of existing Collectus content. Technical support requests can also be made within the user interface. An added service found in Collectus is storing company or project-specific content in restricted-access areas within the interface.
