ManufactOn BIM Viewer, English
General Usage Instructions
ManufactOn's Autodesk® Revit® plugin allows users to connect their model elements to ManufactOn backend. Users can publish prefab packages, associate model elements to the package and track the progress of prefab packages from planning to coordination to detailing, manufacturing, QA and all the way to install completely. For each of the stages, users can choose a color to indicate the stage and the model will show appropriate colors for the elements, all in real time. In addition, users may choose to see only those elements that are in a particular stage or by completion date etc. and the extension would then isolate and show only those elements, making it very easy for the user to visualize exactly where in the process a given model element is. Associated models are on BIM360 and ManufactOn uses Forge APIs and existing BIM360 credentials and permissions to allow the user to visualize the model.
The app works with Manufacton's Revit Plugin and will also work in the AutoCAD environment once the AutoCAD plugin is available.
