Debug log provides the detail report on every action happened in the export process
Error log provides information on any error captured during the Export the process.
Yes, we support exporting of Revit Link files
Yes, Tool will export all attached link files.
No, we do not support exporting 2D geometry
Only 3D elements that are visible in Project will get exported & Elements which are not visible or visible as 2D geometry will get ignored while exporting.
Yes, Tool will export the RGB materials applied to the family level.
No, we do not support exporting of the appearance of system family and in-place family
This may occur for Multi face geometry where the material have been applied to the individual faces.
No, Tool only supports RGB colors applied to family level.
Yes, the tool supports for both instance and type properties
Materials are not supported in the DWG file.
All created 3D views corresponding to the model will get listed and the user can choose the preferred view before performing the export. The components which are activated in the selected view will get exported. Suppose if there is any section box is set in the selected view then only the active components inside the section box will get exported.
All the parameters associated with the family type within the model are included for the export
In the tool, under the Others tab in the parameter option, select the Shared parameter to export only parameters associated with the current model.
No, the tool does not have option to exclude parameters manually
By selecting the exclude empty parameters checkbox in the parameter option, the parameters whose values are null will get excluded while exporting.
By selecting the Exclude Import Instance checkbox, the import instances get excluded while exporting the model.
Components imported from other software using the Import CAD option will be considered as Import instances.
By selecting the Exclude Revit Links checkbox, the Revit Link files associated with the model will get ignored during export.
Only the Revit & IFC file attached as a link will be excluded during the export
No, the tool doesn’t support that option. We can either exclude both or include both.
Grouping function helps the user to create a virtual hierarchy based on Revit Category and then by family type.
It will group all the selected categories into a single element in the BXF file. Category Grouping can be considered as Primary Level Grouping.
After grouping the category, the user can choose to group by family type by selecting the checkbox. It is to be noted that it is considered as Secondary Level Grouping.
The Grouping section gets enabled only when the Grouping checkbox is selected and followed by the desired selection.
Revit Hierarchy creation will be maintained as follows,
Grouping will not get disturbed with any import type.
Open the SketchUp, Under BIMDeX Tab, Click on Import option. Then in file selection browse for the BXF file and click on the import button. Now the BXF will be imported into SketchUp.
Import type is based on what type of hierarchy should be imported into SketchUp.
|1||Complete Assembly||By choosing the Complete Assembly, the entire model will get created in SketchUp replicating the BXF hierarchy structure.|
|2||Flat Assembly||By choosing the Flat Assembly, all nested level components in the BXF are created at the parent level and ignores all the sub-assemblies in the BXF while importing to SketchUp.|
|3||Flat Sub Assembly||By choosing the Flat Sub Assembly, the first level of the nested hierarchy will be maintained, and a further level of sub-assemblies and parts files will be collapsed to its parent level|
|4||Flat Part||By choosing the Flat Part, only the geometries from the BXF will get created within SketchUp.|
User can’t see the properties in SketchUp and this is software limitation
There is no such limitation on file size but for exporting bigger models, user need to have better system configuration to avoid the crash issue (Software might get crashed due to insufficient memory space)
For a system having low configuration (less than equals to 16 GB of RAM), we recommend users to split bigger models into smaller segments and export accordingly.
Export time depends on the number/type of components available in the model and it’s not based on model size.
The following information will help you to reduce the file size,
