  • Hello Su Nsr, The naming convention of generated section result blocks had indeed changed between V19 and V20. The reason of this change is to make sure that the section result block is not overwritten when two sections with the same name are gener…
  • @Camilla said: I need to export the data of the plies (price of materials, area of ply, volume of ply, cost of ply) of each material in order to estimate the cost of the building. Hi Camilla, WIth the current version of BricsCAD BIM, it is …
  • Hi all, Maybe the alignment tools in BricsCAD V20 can also be used. You start by defining the horizontal alignment. This is a 2D curve which is needed to precisely position linear objects in a horizontal direction. It is defined by the Points of In…
  • Hi Gary, The automatic generation of tags can be enabled/disabled using the "generate tags" property of a BIM section. If you want to disable the "generate tags" property for every new section, you can disable the property on the BIM section in the…
  • There are some default BIMTAGs available for walls, slabs, columns, beams, etc. but it is perfectly possible to customize the BIMTAG or to add new ones. BIMTAGs are created as multileader entities using multileader styles. The content of such multi…
  • Hello, At the moment, it is not yet possible, but (again) we are working on improving the compositions, so it will be possible to attach compositions to a cylindrical wall. Kind regards, Tiemen
  • Hello Pedroloureiro, At the moment, BIMTAG does not support tagging of composition information, but we are working on BIMTAG improvements for V20 that will allow you to do exactly this! Kind regards, Tiemen
  • Hi Davide, There could be several reasons why the IFC import is slow, and it is hard to tell without having a look into the specific IFC file. Could you please file a support request, and attach the file, so we can have a look on how we can improve…
  • Hello Michael, Thanks for the nice feedback! It sounds like Vectorworks exports multi-ply walls or slabs as aggregated entities, i.e. being composed by other elements and acting as an assembly. In this case, such entities are imported to BricsCAD a…
  • Hello Hans, Indeed, you heard it correctly. It was announced at the London 2018 conference that several new functionalities for using open standards are planned, including BCF support.
  • Hello Tomas, There is an option 'Interior' in the BIMSECTION command, which will ask you to select BIM Rooms to generate Interior Elevations. The interior elevations will then be created automatically for each wall of the room.
  • Hello, BricsCAD BIM contains keynotes according to Omniclass, Uniformat, Masterformat, and other standards, which can be imported via the BIMPROPERTIES dialog. These keynotes can be assigned to BIM building elements as custom properties (see screen…
  • Hello all, RFA import is a work-in-progress development. Please create a support ticket to report problems. Here are some general guidelines about the current V19 RFA import functionality: 1. We don’t support RFA files older than 2011. 2. Files…
  • The way Bricscad chooses Wall Directions by default, (inner/outer side), is still pretty random for my purposes. I could live much better with a simple strict rule, like, Walls outer side will be always "left" along drawing axis. In the current…
  • @Ricardo Cruz said: a) What's the purpose of having bimroom tags if they can't be displayed on a generated plans? If I want areas on 2d drawings I have to put them manually? that's crazy... The BIMTAG command automatically creates associativ…
  • Hello Steven, The custom properties should appear in the DataExtraction wizard, but it might depend on the selected entities to extract data from. IFC export of rooms should also be supported. Can you please file a support request for these two p…
  • Do you know if these also export to IFC? Yes, IFC export/import of custom properties is supported.
  • Hello Steven, There is a way to attach custom properties to objects. Open the BIMPROPERTIES dialog, and add a property set with some property definitions in the 'User' namespace. Choose the applicable categories for the property set (eg. all the bu…
  • Hello Steven, Although the 'reference' property is shared between different BIM classification types, it exists in different property sets for each BIM classification type; eg for wall the reference property is in Pset_WallCommon, for beam the refe…
