Shapes Panel

The Shapes panel will show all of the shapes available in the loaded IFC plan along with the other shapes drawn in the viewport for standard PDF or DWG plans.


The Shapes can be grouped with "by Type" (result type) or "By hierarchy" (Level) by selecting the option from the drop-down menu at the top of the panel.

Mapping Attributes 

The BIM Shapes from the imported IFC plan can have their shape attributes mapped to particular result types, at any time, or when the BIM Shapes are dragged onto the Estimate panel.
This allows the correct information to be displayed on the jobs Items in the Estimate panel.
