BIM Information Panel

Overview

Enscape has a BIM information panel that opens within the Enscape window itself and which allows easy selection and inspection of all BIM information within a project.

NOTE: this feature is currently only available in Revit and ArchiCAD. 

You can open and close the BIM Information panel by pressing the [B] key on your keyboard when the Enscape window is in focus. The BIM Information panel will open on the left hand side of the Enscape window and can be opened in all Projections.

All BIM information is listed and categorized according to how it was entered in the CAD. The BIM Information in Enscape allows you to display and to a certain extent browse BIM Data specified in your project. This information is not editable in the Enscape window and any alterations to the BIM information must be performed in the CAD that you are using Enscape with.

Selecting BIM Information

You can select the element that you want to view the BIM information for in several ways.

You can directly select the element in the project in the Enscape window by moving the mouse over the area of interest, whereby each element will be highlighted as shown below.
