The planBIM plugin creates a new tab in Revit after installation, and you can access the Scoper module by clicking on its icon, as shown below.
- Access Level of Development (LOD) of all projects created using planBIM's Web or Mobile apps
- View LOD, LOI, LOA as well as assigned parameters of various Element Categories directly within Revit
- Associate objects inside the Revit BIM Models with defined LOD scopes
- Easily filter particular element categories from within the plugin
- A BIM Manager/Project manager can specify the scope of work and elements to be modelled using the LOD matrix functionality of planBIM's web/mobile apps.
Further, the BIM Modellers can directly view the scope assigned to them and develop their models accordingly within Revit.
- A BIM Modeller can associate various model elements with the element categories in planBIM. The associations can be made by Family or by the Type of element.
The BIM Manager can later quickly audit whether the various elements are modelled according to the correct LOD as specified in the Scope.
Once you log in your planBIM account, you would be able to see all the projects and can switch between workspaces.
All the projects in the chosen workspace would be visible to the newly added user.
The detailed scope of work for each element can be seen here for both, the modelling and auditing purposes. Elements can be easily filtered and sorted for each discipline, LOD, LOA, alphabetically, and so forth, as seen in the image below.
Projects can also be filtered and sorted similarly for discipline, LODs, amongst others.
The user can click on the project they are working on to view the scope of work and other information while they are working/modelling. Switching between phases is also really simple with this add-in.
The elements are linkable to the correct subcategories selected in the Scoper module on the app or the web. The add-in identifies the element category and shows only the relevant linking options as per the scope for any selected element.
E.g., as seen in the image below, the balcony railing has been selected, and the add-in shows two options for railings.
The add-in gives you the option of linking the element to its Family or Type as per requirement. The F stands for Family and T stands for the Type. Once linked to any one of these categories, the element is instantly observable by other team members of the project. Therefore, there is no requirement of synchronising the information you input. The Revit add-in would automatically sync your linked data via the cloud.
E.g., if you link the railing as an independent railing, the other person on the team would be able to see it as the image below when he logs in to the same project.
Parameters are foreseeable as per the LOI specification for the information the element should contain and can later be verified by the user auditing the project. Multiple selections are designable for parameters in the web app, and these parameters can also be added manually for custom ones.
The video below shows how the add-in works in detail -
