BIM Collab – BCF
For every issue, all comments and resolutions are automatically retrieved from BIMCollab. You can also create/resolve/close issues and comments back to the BIMCollab platform. This creates a powerful visualization tool, where you can combine all your issues and comments together with the contextualizes 3D data. The two-way sync makes it possible to perform a thorough evaluation of decisions when needed.
BIM Track – BCF

Streamline the BIM communication, collaboration, and coordination processes with BIM Track in Novorender. Collect all comments and issues from BIM Track, and view them directly in Novorender for the whole team to get access. For every issue, all comments and resolutions are automatically retrieved from BIM Track. You can also create/resolve/close issues and comments back to the BIM Track platform. This creates a powerful visualization tool, where you can combine all your issues and comments together with the contextualizes 3D data. The two-way sync makes it possible to perform a thorough evaluation of decisions when needed. Get an overview at any time, from anywhere, even from your phone. Stop exchanging files with outdated lists and work seamlessly together from a single source of truth.

Checklist

Create checklists for all items in the 3D. You can even assign them to one or multiple attributes!

Clash Detection

Clash detection via Novorender helps in speeding up projects by identifying clashes between several 3d models and point clouds during the early phases of construction.

Simply add the values in the Deviations widget to get started

Clipping Box

Use clipping to see section planes

Clipping plane

Create different section views of your 3D model! Select any surface, and clip into the model with the “Position” sliding bar

The button is at the bottom right

Open functions

Click the functions button to open up all features

Geometric control

Compare your as-built against the underlying 3D models. In the video example we display the geometric control with over- and underbreak, to validate the drilling and explosives work for tunnel work. Large point clouds are used to be compared against IFC/landXML files to validate the ongoing work.

Choose your landXML file in the widget “Follow Path” to get started

Groups

Create groups to allow the users in Viewer mode to automatically select predefined areas, based on searches, in the model.

Groups exclude

Use Groups to only show parts of the model, and exclude everything else.

Height Profile and slope

Get the height profile and slope of a pipe, tubes and others. Click and get the break points between different slopes.

IFS

Go from IFS to Novorender or the other way around. Based on attribute ID, you can find documents andre more.

Manhole

Create custom measurements for manhole covers. It will give you various measurements such as Elevation for top and bottom, radius for inner and outer, elevation, x, y,z and much more!

Measurement

Measure allows for detailed measuring show distances, differences, elevations and more.

When the data is parametric, it is also possible to get additional information such as slope, width, height, area and more.

Measurement 2D

Use your 2D data from files such as DWG to do measurements with 100% accuracy!

Measurement Center Line

Use Center lines to measure the closest distance to any point in the model.

Remember to pin the center line in the measurement tool before selecting another point.

Measurement – Inner bottom, Outer Top

Click on any pipe to get automatic measurements showing slope, slope direction and more. In addtition, you are now able to see inner bottom and outer top measurements.

Measurement Parametric

When the data is parametric, it is possible to get additional information such as slope, width, height, area and more.

Microsoft Teams

Use your Novorender models inside Microsoft Teams, with all of the same functionality available!
