Connects solid faces and edges of planar surfaces to other solids, planar surfaces or regions.
If the DELETEINTERFERENCE system variable is ON, the connected solid is subtracted from interfering solids.
Accessing the Command
Menu: BIM | BimConnect | TConnect
Toolbar: BIM Connect
Quad Tab: Model
Ribbon Tab | Panel: Model | Modify 3D - Connect
Select entities to connect [selection options (?)]: (Select solid faces or edges of planar surfaces.)
Entities in set: 1
Select entities to connect [selection options (?)]: (Select more solid faces or edges of planar surfaces. or press Enter.)
Select entities to connect to or [Connect to nearest/Disconnect/selection options (?)] <Connect to nearest>: (Select a solid face, planar surface or a region, or press Enter to connect to the nearest solid.)
Entities in set: 1
Select entities to connect to or [Connect to nearest/Disconnect/selection options (?)] <Connect to nearest>: (Select more solid faces, planar surfaces or a regions, or choose an option, or press Enter to create the connection(s).)
Connect to nearest
Connects the selected face(s) or edges of planar surfaces to the nearest regions, planar surfaces or face(s) of other solid(s).
Select the faces or edges of planar surfaces.
Right-click or press Enter to create the connections.
This option applies to solid faces only. The face is disconnected and made perpendicular to the adjacent faces, which results in a single edge or vertex connection.
Select entities to disconnect from or [Disconnect from nearest/Connect/selection options (?)] <Disconnect from nearest>:
LConnect - creates an L-connection between solids.
DmPushPull - adds or removes volume from a solid by moving/offsetting a face.
BimStructuralConnect - connects structural profile solids such as beams and columns.
BimFlowConnect - creates a connection between flow segments, such as pipes or HVAC ducts.
