Course overview
Learn how to use BIMcollab Zoom Smart Properties. Working with multiple BIM models from different authors can be a challenge. Combining models with different terminology can dramatically limit the flow of information and hinder model validation. With BIMcollab Zoom's Smart Properties this can be solved easily. Classify and restructure BIM data without the need of asking authors to change their models.

Structure BIM data to your needs.

Smart Properties also improve and speed up your workflow. Because Smart Properties structure BIM data centrally, they can be used everywhere. For example, to drive Smart views, Clash rules and Lists. Therefore, the data only needs to be structured once and not for every model check again.

Extract data with ease

It's impossible to include every detail in your BIM protocol to prevent modelers from unknowingly making mistakes. When adding data to a BIM model, different languages, abbreviations and typos are inevitable. In order to smooth out these differences, you can define Smart Properties, to get a predictable outcome for consistent model validation.
Another problem is that values can be found in different attributes for different elements. For example, for one element volume is defined in base quantities, and for another element it’s located under dimensions. With Smart Properties you can create a common value for each element, which will be easier when extracting data with Lists.
