Caneco BIM is a Revit® plugin for designing electrical installations while ensuring compliance with electrical calculation standards.

Caneco BIM enables electrical information to be exchanged between a digital model and the Caneco software range.

Caneco BIM enriches a project by providing all the properties required to build an electrical installation.

Caneco BIM is based on the same principle of linking the digital model to a high-performance calculation core and transfers it to the BIM context.

Caneco BIM builds upon Revit® to seamlessly integrate electrical design into BIM projects.

Key Features

  • A digital collaborative platform:
    • Caneco BIM performs the exchange of electrical data between Revit®, and the Caneco solution
    • It enables the import of the positioning and the references of lighting features from Dialux® Evo Pro
  • Sizing of electrical installations:
    • Caneco BIM enriches the digital model with the results of calculations carried out in Caneco, such as cable cross-sections, protective devices and short-circuits
    • Model and calculate the busbar trunking systems
    • It performs automated cable routing inside Revit®
    • Calculation of cable tray footprint
    • Sizing of cable trays
  • Complementary applications:
    • Additional tools will help you control and validate your electrical installation in your digital model
    • Caneco BIM allows the import of the cable types, from Caneco directly into Revit®
    • It analyses the objects and groups of objects and adds electrical parameters such as voltage, apparent load, load class, etc.
    • Create your electrical circuits with advanced tools
Caneco BIM 2023 - Revit



  • Increased Productivity​ & Quality
    Automate, streamline and in effect accelerate the design process while reducing manual inputs and according risk of errors. Save valuable time while being BIM-ready and future proof.
  • Improved Specifications
    With the multi-manufacturer database for electrical equipment allows you to design systems for new or existing installations and to account for each manufacturers’ characteristics.​
  • Security and compliance
    Caneco BIM guarantee the compliance of your digital electrical model with the applicable standards, thanks to its interaction with Caneco´s calculation engine.




Designing electrical installations requires specifiers and contrac­tors to use several different applications for electrical calcula­tion and design. An integrated software environment frees users from the challenge of entering the same information multiple times in different software packages.

By ensuring data integrity throughout the entire design process, Caneco addresses the most significant challenges in electrical design, while enabling automated cable routing (and more, see "Key Features"), ensuring compliance with standards and regulations, and allowing for the generation of precise reports and a comprehensive documentation.
