Navigating the BIM Editor
The BIM Editor allows you to set up the BIM origin. When the BIM origin matches the Reference Plan origin(s), the as-built digital twins are synced to the BIM in SiteView. This allows SiteView users to view digital twins and BIM side by side and transport and overlay 3D objects on panos.
Navigate BIM Model
The BIM Editor offers basic navigation option such as pan, zoom, and orbit around a BIM model.
Pan allows you to move the entire BIM model around on the screen. To pan the BIM:
- On the bottom tool bar click Pan.
- Click and drag on the BIM viewer to move the BIM in any direction.
Zoom allows you to view details on the BIM, making plane selection during origin point setup a breeze. To zoom in on the BIM:
- On the bottom tool bar click Zoom.
- On the BIM viewer, click and drag your mouse up or to the right to zoom in, and click and drag to down or to the left to zoom out.
Orbit is the current default navigation mode in the BIM Editor and allows the user to rotate the BIM model around the A 1 point. To rotate the BIM:
- On the bottom tool bar click Orbit.
- Click and drag on the BIM viewer to rotate the BIM around the A 1 point.
The BIM Editor offers basic tools to allow the user to measure objects, perform sectional analysis, or view the BIM in exploded view.
This is the cutaway view tool. Can cutaway along the X, Y, or Z axis.
- On the bottom tool bar click Sectional Analysis > Add X Plane, Add Y Plane, or Add Z Plane to cut away the model on the X, Y, or Z axis.
- Click and drag the yellow arrow along the axis to view the cross section of the BIM.
- Click Sectional Analysis icon again to revert to normal view.
