iConstruct 2017 is Here

iConstruct 2017 is Here

New for 2017, is the first release of iConstruct’s Model Compare tool. As with Zone Tools, this module leverages the nVidia CUDA framework to perform an Advanced Geometric and Data comparison between models to identify new, deleted and matching geometry.

Model compare also allows for property comparison and determines if an object has changed based on a nominated ID. The tool is exposed to BIMFlow, which allows overnight batch comparisons to be run so the results can be stored in a database file and used at a later time.

Key Enhancements Include:

2D Hidden Line View for Smart DWG Exporter

iConstruct’s 2017 ‘2D Hidden Line View‘ option in the ‘Smart DWG Exporter’ is a new feature which generates 2D DWG files from the top view of a model in Navisworks. It processes all the geometries in the model and produces a DWG file which is ready to print or export as a PDF to send to client.

Zone Grouper for Clash Manager

iConstruct’s ‘Zone Grouper‘ feature for Clash Manager overlays zone geometry within the model. With this feature configured, each clash will contain zone information that can be used for filtering and/or grouping. Save even more time managing your clash data.

Zone Slicer for ReConstruct

iConstruct’s new ‘Zone Slicer’ for ReConstruct enables even more control over your models. Either import your own cuboid zone NWD, or use the provided utility to create a zone volume NWD from your sectioned viewpoints, then enable in ReConstruct to export a sliced NWD for each viewpoint.
