4.0

The new Navisworks add-on offers a much better visual display of issues by their snapshots. With three possible snapshot-sizes and resizable panel-width users can choose how to use the available screen size. Also the issue history with comments is visually enhanced with their linked snapshots. Extended filtering options You can now filter issues on all properties. Especially when working in large projects with lots of issues it is much easier to keep an overview and find the issues to work on. Navisworks The way issues are created from clash detective or saved viewpoints is improved. It now supports workflows where users have their own model-coloring for disciplines or classifications. When the use of colors is switched off, model-colors are not reset when creating issues nor when zoom to issues. List of new features - Issue list available as small, medium or large tile view. - Comment history visually enhanced with snapshots. - Issue-filter extended with all properties. - More clear user interface for usage of colors. - Updated logo’s and toolbar icons. - Improved performance and reliability.

3.2

The performance has been improved dramatically, up to 50 times faster when zooming to issues and creating them, for example from the Clash Detective. Saved viewpoints are now supported to use in viewpoints. Colored components are also saved. You can select multiple clash-tests to generate issues from, If needed you now have the possibility to cancel any long lasting operation. Another great improvement is the support for moved and rotated Survey points. From now on all issue properties and all features found in the web application (such as notify) are supported in all BCF managers. The new approval process is supported and the issue-filter is extended with Area.

New interface
The new interface offers you more information about the issues in one clear overview. When creating or editing issues all issue-properties can be accessed. A more transparent way of connecting to the cloud and filtering or synchronizing issues.
Insight in viewpoint content, quick zoom and bounding box for fast creation of clipping planes makes you more productive with this new version.

Better Camera positioning 
Finding the location of issues in your model is an essential part of the system. Camera positioning has been improved a lot and even takes into account the possibilities with different BIM tool’s coordinate systems like survey points in Revit. Component highlighting is improved and a Quick zoom helps working with very big models.

Performance optimization
Speed is essential when dealing with large models and large numbers of issues. Connecting, downloading and publishing issues is up to 100 times faster due to the improved background loading and caching. Automatic notifications for slow viewpoints prevent you from creating bottlenecks.
