MODULE: COMPARE

The module is used for detailed comparison of objects’ geometry and properties. It allows you to compare any two objects in the model and see the differences between object’s revisions.

More

It lets you freely navigate between changes (rotating, moving, zooming, moving relative to each other along the x, y, z axes, as well as rotating one object relative to another). The generated table lists the properties of objects that expose their differences. Any such comparison can be saved to an Excel file. The resulting spreadsheet is identical to the view in the application window.

This module is a very useful tool for investors, general contractors as well as project managers. By allowing to easily distinguish differences between elements of one project or its revisions, it significantly accelerates the implementation process. Automatically obtained information facilitates communication between project team members, eliminates oversights and errors, and allows analysis of changes made in project revisions.

 

BASIC CLASH DETECTION BUNDLE

This is the best solution for everyone who needs to check collisions only internally (you do not need exchange the comments with other participants of the project).

More

This set of plugins allows you to:

  • identify geometric collisions between elements of one and between elements of several models;
  • perform the initial selection of items that are checked. You can define the elements for which you want to identify collisions (all, active, selected, custom selected, object list);
  • limit the scope of the search by defining Epsilon;
  • focus on collisions of the highest importance for the project, thanks to the Min. volume option;
  • accurately visualize the place of the collision, precisely show the place of intersection of the elements;
  • display several models at the same time
  • merge storeys by global ID, elevation or name
  • unload models
  • save views;
  • take screenshots
  • change color of elements

Save the file to * .BVF format which allows you to save all opened IFC files into one file and screens for all clashes exported to the Gallery. Opening it again we find everything in one place, all IFC files as well as the applied previously comments, except colors. This change is made only for time of viewing the model (unless you save it in view).

This bundle contains one license for plugins:

  • Clash Detection
  • Multifile Module
  • Gallery

CLASH DETECTION

User-friendly, practical solution that allows you to detect quickly geometric collisions appearing between elements in one model or between elements of several independent models*.

More

As you know clash detection helps in effective identification, inspection and reporting of interferences in a BIM model. It reduces the risk of human error which normally would have been discovered on the site and would most likely cause losses and often delays in the implementation of the task.

Clash Detection Plugin allows you to:

  • identify geometric collisions between elements of one model;
  • identify geometric collisions between elements of several models (for more than two models - use the Multifile Module);
  • perform the initial selection of items that are checked. You can define the elements for which you want to identify collisions (all, active, selected, custom selected, object list);
  • limit the scope of the search by defining Epsilon**;
  • focus on collisions of the highest importance for the project, thanks to the Min. volume option;
  • accurately visualize the place of the collision, precisely show the place of intersection of the elements;

*For more than 2 models please use Multifile Module;

**Selected = elements / objects indicated in the model and highlighted in green;

***Custom selector = here you can select elements/objects by using properties defined in model and exported to the IFC;

****Object list = list of specific elements, select elements/objects in model and choose option “add selected”;

*****Epsilon - measure of overlapping elements.

ADVANCED REPORTS

The plugin enables development of advanced reports. Select model elements (all / selected / visible) and properties that you want to analyze. Define the way of grouping and summing. Now you can save the file in .xlsx (Excel) format.

OBJECTS INFO

This BIM Vision extension allows you to search, group, filter and choose objects by name, type or property. Plugin adds a new button group “Objects” in ribbon tab “PLUGINS”.

More
Find

Allows you to identify the item by searching text in objects and properties. This option is especially useful in a situation where you need to quickly find an item or group of items, eg. a particular parameter.

Group

Function allows you to group objects by name, the name of the material, description, IFC type or user tag.

Filter

Allows to filter objects by name, description, IFC type , user tag and property values (eg. pillars higher than 4m). In a few steps we are able to find all the items with set of features interesting for us.

Choose

Show chosen properties of first selected object. The user selects a set of features that are the most important for him from the point of view of the analysis of the project. The user can define and save a few properties.

IFC COMMENTS / BCF

The main idea of the plugin is to create a workflow communication capability connected to IFC models and improving collaboration between the all parties involved in the investment process.

 Currently we support also BIM Collaboration Format  (BCF v1).

More

This BIM Vision extension allows you to add, view and share comments to IFC file. Comments are automatically saved and loaded with IFC model to/from BIM Vision File (*.BVF), or they can be manually loaded and saved to an external file - without an IFC model. Currently we support also BIM Collaboration Format (BCF v1).



MODULE MULTIFILE

This BIM Vision module allows to load and view multiple IFC files in one view.

More

The plugin allows us to:

  • display several models at the same time
  • merge storeys by global ID, elevation or name
  • unload models

Save the file to * .BVF format which allows you to save all opened IFC files into one file. Opening it again we find everything in one place, all IFC files as well as the applied previously comments.

GALLERY

Using the additional plugin "Gallery" you can optimize and improve the process the exchange of information between all participant of the process.

More
Saved view

When you save a view, main BIM Vision viewing options (camera position, display settings) and state of all IFC elements (active, visible, transparent, selection, colors) will be remembered. Plugin also makes a thumbnail and put it into gallery of views. When you choose this view, all saved data will be restored. Views are automatically loaded and saved in separate file with “.gallery” extension.

Take screenshot

Take screenshots - You can either take screenshots of current view and save it to PNG/BMP image file or directly copy to Clipboard. Now you can send the file with question to the designer.

 
Change color

For better coordination and control of the project we created a tool "Change colors" allows users to select colors for specific elements. Change is made only for time of viewing the model (unless you save it in view). You can also modify (remove or add) objects transparency.


IFC PREVIEW

Plugin installs in system preview handler. When you select an IFC file, it displays its preview in Windows Explorer preview pane.

More

Plugin adds also button in ribbon tab “PLUGINS”, which allows to replace default preview of opened file with custom/actual view.



STL EXPORTER

This plugin adds button in ribbon tab “PLUGINS” where you can export geometry from in STL format (ie. for printing 3D).

More
STL EXPORTER

The plugin allows you to choose: which objects you want to export (selected, visible all), what elements should be omitted and scale. Items can be exported to one or more files. You can also select the file type: Binary or ASCII.


BIMserver.center

Integration of BIM Vision with the BIMserver.center allows you to work with more than 50 different applications in an Open BIM Workflow (with open standards as IFC). Using plugin you can: login directly into the server, select current project, open IFC file and add it to project.

More
BIMserver.center

BIMserver platform allows you:

  • to implant a collaborative workflow for project development in the work methodology of all technical specialists which create the work team,
  • to improve the communication amongst project participants, as open formats can be used by most of the tools in the whole process,
  • to generate the architectural model with one tool, to develop the energy analysis with another and to check the visualization and BIM information with BIM Vision.

The BIMserver PLUGIN is for FREE.

MATERIAL TRACKING SYSTEM PLUGIN

This BIM Vision extension allows to group objects depending on items state or from data that comes from external CSV files. You can view, select, change visibility and color of each group. You can also edit groups and assign elements to them in BIM Vision. This plugin was created on the request of one of our clients in order to improve the management process in the design and manufacturing process for the realization of steel structures investments.

More

BATCHING

Objects are grouped depending on the value of property “USER_FIELD_4” in property group “BIM”. When object does not have such property if will be placed in “Un-batched items” group, otherwise object and all its children will be assigned to group defined in this property.

 

REAL TIME

Objects are grouped depending on CSV file. This is txt file that contains object’s guid and status. The guid is compared with value of property “GUID” in property group “BIM” (plugin adds “ID” prefix to each). When object does not belong to any group it will be added to “Unknown status” category. Only categories with objects that are present in IFC file are added. When CSV file is in the same directory and has same name as IFC file, it will be loaded automatically. You can also load CSV file manually.
