I was impressed with the capability that Bimify seemed to offer. However, it is not working as I had hoped.
I was hoping to be able to take existing "dead" or datum geometry created in a application outside of Bricsys and bimify it within bricsys to save time with my modelling. However, I can only get bimify to work if
1) the objects were created using Shape - that is create them in shape exported into BricsBim and then run bimify to convert the pipe datum solid object to a native bricsbeam object
2) the file i am opening is an IFC file
I have attached an example where i have imported a simple pipe shape created outside of bricsys - a AISC HSS8.625x0.625 round HSS stee section. Whenever i try to bimify the geometry it will not determine a profile to use, and hence it is never reassigned as a bricsbim beam object.
Is this the intended behavior in that Bimify can only work on solid geometry created in Shape or IFC? This is a real shame if so, thanks........
