Using the additional plugin “Gallery” you can optimize and improve the process of exchange of information between all participants of the process.
When you save a view, main BIMvision 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 puts it into a 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.
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.
For better coordination and control of the project we created a tool “Change colors” which allows users to select colors for specific elements. The 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.
