BIMmTool settings

PointCab Import

With the PointCab Import command, orthophotos, views, sections and more can be imported and placed directly from PointCab with just a few clicks.

Point cloud import

The point clouds are automatically clustered by bullet, made available in different resolutions and placed in ARCHICAD including the scanner locations.

Show in 3D

Shows the current scan in our 3D camera view.

Pick point cloud

With the Pick Point Cloud tool, point clouds can be selected in 2D & 3D and displayed in the BIMm Navigator.

BIMmTool standard functions

The standard functions are always available for each tool. However, depending on the tool you select, you can use different measurements adapted to the tool.

Measure elevation upper surface

With the function Measure Upper Surface Height, the ARCHICAD values are measured at the bottom / top depending on the selected tool. For more information, refer to the respective tools.

Measure Elevation lower surface

With the function Measure lower surface elevation, the ARCHICAD values are measured at the bottom / top depending on the selected tool. For more information, refer to the respective tools.

Measure distance

Measures the distance between two measuring points

3D value

Distance between 2 measuring points in 3D

2D value

Distance between 2 measuring points projected on the floor plan

Angle measurement

Measures the distance between two measuring points

The angle refers to the angle between measuring point 1 to the horizontal and distance measuring point 1 to measuring point 2 (horizontal reference plane)

Measure Z-Value

Height (Z Absolute)

Height value of the measuring point

dZ Value

Z distance between the last 2 measuring points. Measured with Z value.

Function > Set hotpoint

Sets a measuring point in ARCHICAD. No point measurement from PointCab 4BIM

Function > Snap Angle

Function > Save measuring points as XYZ values

Function > Create camera for point cloud

Function > BIMmImport Orthofoto
