Analyzes the model and runs automatic classification and spatial location assignment for the entire model. Creates new buildings and/or stories and spaces if necessary. Optionally creates plan sections and elevations.
Accessing the Command
Quad: BIM | Bimify
Ribbon: Home | Classify | Classify | Bimify
Toolbar: BIM Classify | Bimify
You are prompted:
Run Bimify on entire model or [Advanced] <Model>:
Running Bimify on the entire model will classify objects, assign spatial locations, detect spaces and create elevations and floor plan section planes in the model.
BricsCAD reports in the Prompt History panel:
BIM data assigned to 27 of 27 object(s), skipped 0 pre-assigned object(s)
Time taken to classify 0.10 s
Building 'Building-2': <Created>
The spatial location has been assigned to 27 element(s).
Time taken for creation of hatches 0.02 s
Time taken for creation of volumes 0.06 s
Successfully created 3 spaces*.
Time taken in total: 0.11 s
Determined outer walls
Time taken in total: 0.08 s
Creating Sections **
Choosing for the 'Advanced' option will display the following dialog:
Determines to what discipline the model belongs to. This improves the accuracy of the automatic classification.
Assigns columns, beams, members or flow segments profiles that are available in BricsCAD profile library.
If no match can be found for a profile element in the standard library, Bimify creates a new custom profile in the project's library.
Assigns spatial locations (buildings and floors)
Detects external walls and sets the property Wall Common / Is External = ON.
Creates BIM Section entities.
Sections: Creates a plan section for each floor.
Elevations: Creates four elevations (Front, Back, Left and Right).
BimAttachSpatialLocation - Allows to attach or remove a spatial location to a selection of entities.
BimClassify - Classifies an entity as a Building Element and get a name and an internal GUID (= globally unique identifier).
BimSpace - Creates BIM space entities.
BimSection - Creates a BIM section entity.
BimSpatialLocations - Opens the Buildings & Stories manager. This explorer allows to create and edit site, buildings and stories.
