Overview & Background
Users can select any objects included in the 3D models that are uploaded to Fieldwire's BIM Viewer. Users can hide, isolate or view the properties of any model object. Being able to access model properties such as material, height, type, etc. provides your team with actionable, location-specific insights into the model and project.
Keep in mind, the 3D Models tab will not be displayed on mobile if there are no 3D models already uploaded to your project. This is due to the limited size of mobile device screens.
Note: To view larger 3D models, we recommend having at least 4GB of RAM on your device.
If you are trying to view a larger model on a device with less than 4GB of RAM, Fieldwire may crash.
To remedy this, try the following:
- Clear any background apps to free up memory.
- Split a model into smaller models to view on mobile.
- Upgrade your device with more memory/RAM.
Select an Object
To select an Object, tap on it. The selected object will turn yellow.
After you select an object, you'll see a menu with four actionable items.
Tip: To deselect an object, tap anywhere outside of the menu. The object will stay selected/highlighted. Once the menu is closed, tap the object again or outside the model to deselect.
This option provides additional metadata about the selected object. Fieldwire will display every property included in the model for that object. This ultimately depends on the type of object and the platform in which the model was created.
Selecting 'Isolate' will hide all other objects within the Model.
Selecting 'Hide' will hide the selected object.
Selecting 'Show all' will display all objects that were hidden in the model.
