PlanRadar’s BIM model viewer allows construction and real estate teams to gain BIM benefits on-the-go with smartly simple navigation. PlanRadar’s openBIM solution allows uploads of IFC files exported from Revit, ArchiCAD, AllPlan, Navisworks and more and enables PlanRadar users to work directly on the model.
Uploading, deleting and exporting BIM models works in the same way as using 2D plans in PlanRadar. Click here to learn how to do this. Please note that models and 2D plans can only be uploaded through the webapp.
NOTE! Use at least IFC 2x3 format to achieve the best results.
After uploading your BIM model, it is immediately available within your project.
To start working with your BIM model, navigate to the tickets tab via the navigation bar, switch to plan view and select your BIM model from the layer dropdown menu:
To create tickets on your BIM model, go to your desired location and right-click with your mouse on the point where you would like to create the ticket. You can then either accept or decline the ticket location. Accepting will allow you to select the form and create your ticket. This works the same as creating tickets on PDF plans.
On the left, you will see all the tickets created on your BIM model If you click on any ticket, it will automatically move you to that ticket location.
By clicking on any object, you will see the name and measurements of the chosen object on the right-hand side in the model tree.
(make sure you are in the Model tree tab on the right to view this information)
Double click to fly: Double-clicking on any object within your BIM model will automatically fly you towards it.
After uploading your BIM model via the webapp, it is available on your mobile devices immediately after you synchronise your device. You can access your BIM models just as you would with your 2D plans. Navigate to your project and then select the layer that contains the BIM model. Your BIM model will be easily recognisable with BIM MODEL written directly below the layers name.
Creating tickets in your BIM model is done the same way you would create tickets on your 2D plans. Click on the green create ticket button found at the bottom of the screen. This will then drop a pin onto your model which you can drag and drop to your desired location. You can then click the green tick to enter ticket creation.
When you click on a ticket you have created within your BIM model, you will see a new button appear at the top of the page. Clicking on this button (Fly to Ticket) will automatically move you to your position when you created the ticket:
After clicking on the Fly to Ticket button, it automatically moves you to where you were in the model when you created that ticket:
