  4. Connect with BIMcollab Nexus issue management

Model checking

        Smart  Views 
  1. Create basic and advanced Smart Views for visual model validation of IFC model only in the local folder 
  2. Fast visual checking by showing, filtering, hiding, and coloring different elements according to their properties
  3. Auto colour classification of IFC elements based on their properties such as type, fire rating, etc

Model viewing

  1. Set up a Project folder to link shared files to a project

Model checking

       Smart  Views 
  • Create and share clash rules using either a local or shared folder
  • Run geometry clash checks within one or multiple IFC models
  • Check your model against an IDM (Information Delivery Manual) using Smart Views and create issues from the results
  • Check your model against an IDS (Information Delivery Specification) and create issues from the results
  • Explore different ways to visualize the clashing elements
  • Organise conflict results by grouping clashes either by element type, storey level, grid, etc
     Smart Issues
  • Batch generation of issues from clashes
  • Automatic update of issues according to their latest status
  • Manage the status of conflicts with Smart Issues
  • Monitor the progress of Smart Issues in BIMcollab Nexus

Model Data

  • Extract information from IFC models using Lists
  • Quantity listing and property counting
  • Employ the power of Smart properties combined with Lists to maximize the data extraction potential
  • Share Lists and their results online with all project team members (possible after connecting to BIMcollab Nexus)
  • Summarize large data sets and visualize the relationships between components using a Pivot grid in Lists

  1. Share smart properties among the team. 
  2. Structure and re-organize BIM data in your IFC models
  3. Create custom classification systems for your IFC elements, such as the NL-SfB codering
