After uploading 3D models to the BIM Viewer, users can select any object within the model. From there, they can hide, isolate, or view the properties of any model object. Being able to access model properties such as material, height, type, etc. gives your whole team actionable, location-specific insight into the model and project.

Select an Object
To select an object, left-click on it. The selected object will turn yellow:
If a user holds down the left-click for longer than 2 seconds, the viewer will transition to navigation mode.
To see the properties of an object, right-click and select 'Properties':
This will reveal additional data for the selected model object. Fieldwire will display every property included in your model for that object, which ultimately depends on the type of object, the platform in which you created your model, etc.:
If you select 'Isolate' on the object, the viewer will zoom in on the specific object and hide all other objects.
Conversely, selecting 'Hide' will obscure only the selected object:
'Show all' will cause hidden objects in the model to be displayed. If a user right-clicks anywhere in the Fieldwire window (but outside of the model), the only selectable option in the menu will be 'Show All':
To de-select an object, click in the white space outside of the model.
Note: If you are zoomed in on a section of the model, you will first need to zoom out.
