Project Browser

Last modified by Niklas Palmgren on 2018/09/11 09:12

The project browser organizes the project using a tree structure similar to what Windows uses in explorer. Nodes with an arrowhead in front of the name can be expanded to reveal additional nodes. 

The project browser consists of 5 main nodes which are: Model, Drawings, Element marks, Settings, and Components. 

Model

The Model node structures the model in buildings, floors per building and finally element types per floor. By double-clicking any of these nodes, the program filters out the associated elements in the model viewer and in the element id grid. 

Right-clicking on the nodes opens the context menu where it is possible to configure floor plans and phases of the project, export planning, and export elements as linked, also copy elements with or without their element marks to other floors.

Drawings

The Drawings node structures all drawings in the project. There are 6 subnodes representing different categories of drawings. Most of them are self-explanatory but the category 3D and Other are not obvious. The 3D category can be used to store large three-dimensional drawings of the model, for example, intended for export to the IFC format. The other category can be used for reference drawings.

Element Marks

Element marks node lists all the element marks in the project. They are categorized by element type. The context menu covers some options and actions related to linked elements. New linked element marks can be created and existing once imported. It's also possible to export any element mark as linked.
