Caneco 2023 - all new features

Caneco BIM 2023 within the BIMelec solution

Caneco BIM 2023 is integrated into the new BIMelec solution and is a complement to the 2023 versions of Caneco Implantation and Caneco BT.

Caneco BIM 2023 and Revit®

Caneco BIM 2023 is compatible with the 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024 versions of Revit®.

Cable calculation engine version 2

Suitable for complex models with multiple distributions and cable path systems
Up to 90% faster processing time
Example on a project with 10,000 cables and 10,000 cable trays: Reduction of processing time from 30 minutes to 3 minutes i.e. 90% time reduction

New export

New export in CSV format of the following elements:

Terminal devices
Cable trays

Bi-directional dialogue with DIALux Evo

Bi-directional dialogue with DIALux Evo:

Room exchange
Illuminance calculation
Creation of luminaires (*)
Parameter sets shared with important concepts from DIALux Evo (*)
Installation of new luminaires, updating and replacement during iterative calculations (*)

*Requires the export option to CSV format in DIALux Evo

Multi-source – Macro-source

Improved multi-source processing:

Caneco BIM allows you to define up to 6 sources in parallel without the need to connect them
These sources are supported by Caneco BT with their operating mode


3 sources installed, operating mode min 1 and max 2
The Caneco BT sizing takes this parameter into account

Advanced routing and wiring functions

New functions for routing cables in paths and terminal devices wiring in a circuit:

Creation of cable routing points in paths
Creation of cable output point from a path

Caneco BIM Launcher

Complete redesign of the Caneco BIM and Caneco Implantation application launcher:

Creation of a launching profile for a product
Licence configuration test
Support for Caneco BIM 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024
Update notification

Reorganization of ribbons

Improved general ergonomics by integrating the new functions of 2023 version:

• Caneco BIM: Grouping the Wire and CBIM Data functions in Calculation and Display
• Caneco Tools: Grouping of Caneco Analysis, Caneco Openings and Database
• Path: Old Size ribbon renamed
• Wiring: Old Wire ribbon, also includes the new wiring functions
• Routing: New ribbon


General improvements in performance and minor corrections.
Corrected path altitudes for the cables in the supply circuits of the distributions.
Added technical documentation for starting a new project.
Increased number of characters for circuit marks to 25 characters.
Added function to delete a circuit in the Caneco browser

Caneco 2022 - features

Improved exchanges between Caneco BIM and Caneco BT

Support for multiple sources from Revit to Caneco BT.

Integration into Revit of the notion of Normal – Backup for sources and distributions and downstream powered circuits.


Automated creation of a synoptic of high and low currents

Automatically generate synoptics from Revit's electrical systems.

Caneco BIM allows you to obtain different synoptics such as:

Power synoptic with only distributions
Power synoptic with all or part of the high current circuits of your project
Synoptic of your low current installation, fire alarm, computer, etc.

Customize labels & symbols by replacing them with your own.

Production of new technical documents

Automated creation of a cable book and a cable pull book.
You will find in HTML or CSV format all the characteristics of the cables, such as their length, their path, their refmark and all their crossing points.
These technical documents can be used in your Excel spreadsheets or by using your own CSV file templates to change the format.
By combining the automated routing of the cables and their calculation, you have the possibility to edit a cable path cutting book to know at each section the exact content of the cables that pass through them such as the congestion of the cables, their layout, the circuits present...

Improved pathway cable tray's content

Now view the contents of a cable tray section: the circuits present, their technical data, their congestion.

General features of Caneco BIM

Key Features

A digital collaborative platform

Caneco BIM performs the exchange of electrical data between Revit®, and the rest of the BIMelec solution

It enables the import of the positioning and the references of lighting features from Dialux®.

Sizing of an electrical installation

Caneco BIM enriches the digital model with the results of calculations carried out in Caneco BT, such as cable cross-sections, protective devices and short-circuits

Model and calculate the busbar trunking systems

It performs automated cable routing inside Revit®

Calculate cable tray footprint rates

Size cable trays

Complementary applications

Additional tools will help you control and validate your electrical installation in your model
Caneco BIM allows the import of the cable types, as they are described in Caneco BT, 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

Integrated electrical calculation boxes

Caneco BIM converts electro-technical units

It also calculates the react power of condenser batteries


Multiple data entry operations avoided:

Caneco BIM allows you to work just as well in Revit® as in AutoCAD® thanks to its communication interfaces.

Security and compliance:

Caneco BIM guarantees the compliance of your digital electrical model with the applicable standards, thanks to its interface with Caneco BT.

Optimization of work:

The numerous integrated utilities allow an optimized project.

Time saving:

Caneco BIM allows the easy and rapid enrichment of electrical documentation in a project.
