Easily create, classify and manage BCF files for each identified interference and inconsistency
Within any usBIM folder you can create a new BCF file that contains a folder for each of the detected interferences/inconsistencies.
There are three types of files, present in the archive, that need to be sent to identify any given problem in a unique manner:
- MARKUPS, i.e. a file containing textual information regarding the IFC file with the model, the author of the report, the entities involved and any comments useful to resolve the problem;
- VIEWPOINTS, views that pinpoint the problem directly on the digital model. They can be multiple and also be linked to the Markup comments;
- SNAPSHOTS, simple images of the issue being addressed and linked to the identified viewpoints within the digital model.
After creating a new BCF, by means of an issue, you can define its title, add a description specifying to which user the resolution of the issue is assigned; you can set a priority type using the "Priority" combo box (Label, Status and Type), and add the model view as an image (snapshot) and leave comments and remarks on the current issue.
The BCF file is matched to a specific point in the project, so at any time you can go back to the exact point in the model where the clash was generated via the browser with your preferred device.
All team members involved in the project can provide their feedback, either by commenting or by changing the priority status (open/in process/closed) or the notes and images in the issue/report. Once the changes have been made and the issue resolved, you can then move on to consolidating the new version of the document.
