to take advantage of intelligent building objects
in Building Information
Models (BIM), these solutions revolutionize the way AEC professionals
do business, and they effectively improve the communications
builders and clients. As
a result, these solutions enormously improve the productivity
and efficiency and effectiveness of project coordination, team communication, construction planning, quantity takeoff, and project estimating.
Getting the Most from Your Investment
Our goal is to leverage your IT investment by taking full advantage
of the software, skills, and experience you have already acquired. A general design philosophy for Innovaya software is “not
to reinvent the wheel”. Instead, the goal of the software
is to integrate the best off-the-shelf applications already used
the AEC professionals
and streamline the AEC processes, allowing
data to be shared, exchanged and applying new functions when
necessary. For example, Innovaya applications import Autodesk’s
Architectural Desktop® and Revit® objects
and deliver the complete building model to downstream applications.
offer primary functions for design delivery, communication, project
briefing and comprehension, scheduling, quantity takeoff to MS
Excel, and estimating using Sage Timberline technologies, all
on BIM with the data seamlessly shared between applications.
Innovaya applications are meant to support team work from design
to construction. The software benefits can be
fully realized when it's used in a team envionment, whether
virtually or in the same company. With this goal in mind, our
technologies are developed with two principles: 1. the project
data must be shared and exchanged by all of our applications
(see .INV Files).
Little altering of design data or reentering should be needed.
2. We intend to offer various applications
with features that
suit for different needs and different user types or companies.
Whether you are a design firm, a contractor, a design-build,
or an owner organization, you will find Innovaya applications
useful for your AEC projects. For example, the users
who find Innovaya software beneficial include:
- BIM designers, engineers, and 3D modelers
- Project Coordinators
- Project and Construction Managers or subcontractors
- Estimators and cost database experts
- and so on...
Innovaya Project Model Files (.INV
All Innovaya software works with data in .INV files. The name 'INV' is a file
extension name derived from the word 'Innovaya'. The .INV files are highly
also contain essential construction planning information such as cost and scheduling
tasks, and their association with the building elements. In other words, the
INV files represent a Project Information Model (PIM) for an AEC project. The
INV files are created by Innovaya composer applications for major CAD programs
such as Autodesk AutoCAD Architecture/MEP, Autodesk Revit, or generic 3D DWG files.
Additionally, an INV file can contain a complete project model by importing
multiple CAD files and syncronizing design changes. Once an INV file is created
for a project, it can
be used by all Innovaya visual applications.
