The September 2020 Model Coordination update provides additional filters for targeted coordination review. Building on coordination Views, the clash matrix can now be filtered by these pre-defined project subsets. Using Views to load all relevant models into the viewer, you can now choose which models to view clashes between, whilst retaining other models for context in support of resolution decision making. Rounding out this month’s update, Model Coordination now provides localization for Norwegian, Polish and Czech.
Filter Clash Matrix by Coordination View
This latest enhancement enables users to efficiently focus clash review on curated model content. Coordination Views can be used by coordination leads to aggregate model content, focusing on a specific location, such as level, then sharing these with the wider coordination team. Rather than looking at clashes for the entire project, users can now choose an appropriate View and see the filtered clash data requiring review, thereby helping to prioritize their workload.
Selective Model Clash Review
Having opened a curated View to load multiple models, Model Coordination filters automatically-detected clashes to those loaded models. You can now choose whether to further filter clashes down to specific models, whilst retaining the viewing context of the other models. For example, you may choose to only review clashes between Structure and HVAC, however you need to see the context of other surrounding disciplines to decide how those clashes could be resolved. These decisions and actions can be tracked and assigned using the existing issues capabilities. Alternatively, this filter could be used to identify clashes between models which you wish to bulk-categorize as ‘not an issue’.
Model Coordination is now localized into three additional languages: Norwegian, Polish and Czech. These are in addition to those languages already supported: Brazilian Portuguese, Danish, Dutch, French, French Canadian, German, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and Swedish.
