cmBuilder releases a game-changing feature, Multiplayer Mode, bringing unparalleled real-time collaboration to your construction site logistics planning and simulation workflow. By now, in 2022, most professionals have experienced working in a “multiplayer” environment. Whether in google docs or a product like Figma, where all users are in the same space at the same time, seeing changes live and collaborating efficiently with others. The traditional BIM and 4D modeling authoring workflows have always been single player mode, with the ability to share via web viewers for commenting on static information. But the changes need to be implanted back in single player mode (often in on-premise environments).
With the new multiplayer mode, cmBuilder is delivering a live authoring environment, inclusive of real time collaboration, commenting, feedback and the ability to make decisions and solve problems in a fraction of the time, driving value to every project planning process. No more disconnected file-based workflows where the project superintendent sketches up some 2D plans, the BIM/VDC modeler tries to create 3D views, then sends back static screenshots, only to have the superintendent change their plan...back and forth they go. Now they can simply join a cmBuilder SitePlan scenario link, model and simulate the site logistics in real-time and get the job done. You see all the individuals who are in the scenario, you can click to follow their camera and experience the 4D model in a completely new way.
cmBuilder multiplayer mode enables live collaboration for construction teams from anywhere on the cloud, facilitating communication between project stakeholders with unambiguous visual context and speeding up decision making and buy in from the team. All changes are added to the history log, so if there is a need to jump back to earlier options, you can navigate to previous iterations with a single click. The future is real-time, cloud, access from anywhere and bridge the gap between the office, the site and project stakeholders wherever they are based.
