Powerful data validation

Smart Views are filters to dynamically show and color-code components based on their properties. They enable you to quickly gain insight in the quality of the information in your BIM model. When the results of a Smart View identify a problem, the creation of issues is close at hand. 

Create insightful Smart Views

Just select the elements and properties you want to filter and define an action: hide, add, color, set transparent or even auto-color. Working on Smart Views is easy for everyone. To build generic Smart Views, you can use filters that automatically read the different values in the model and auto-color them. This way, Smart Views are not only powerful for data visualization, but can also be used in different projects without problem.  

BIMcollab Zoom includes several examples. You can find additional examples on our download pages.

Prepare views for stakeholders

Smart Views can easily be shared with team members via BIMcollab Nexus. Smart Views can define what to check and a description helps to document the purpose and application. The same applies to your clash rules. 

This way, you can easily ask third-party team members to pre-check their models against these BIM requirements, even with the Zoom Viewer, before sending them to the team. You can define Smart Views to be project specific or project independent. It’s up to you. 

Unique auto-coloring feature

The auto-color feature is unique and unparalleled. With this option, you can color-code components automatically based on selected properties, without having to specify them one-by-one. Use wild-cards or tokens to go beyond limited formatting of values. 

Additionally, a complete legend is generated that shows the values and corresponding colors for reference, counting and visualizing.
