Search Presentation

In Solibri Model Checker (SMC), a presentation of issue slides may consist of hundreds of issues from checks of various rulesets. You may wish to focus on issues that are only in a certain location such as a specific floor, or issues that have a specific responsible party assigned.  The Search dialog will allow you to accomplish this and is the topic of this Tips & Tricks article:

Benefit: Use Search Presentation to quickly and easily locate issues based on specific issue information. This makes it possible to focus on those issues in the Communication layout or to generate issue-specific reports.

Please download the example SMC that is used in this article from the link below to follow along:

SMC Workflow with BCF

Solibri Model Checker (SMC) is able to generate a BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) file based on issues found in a model after running a rules-based check.  The BCF file includes the 3D locations of issues along with textual information.  In this article, you’ll learn the workflow of communicating issues back and forth via BCF between an SMC user and a user working in ArchiCAD to correct issues found in a model.

Below, is an issue that was found using an SMC out-of-the-box validation rule “Clearance in front of windows,” where the ceiling is visible through the exterior window. The SMC user wishes to communicate this issue to the designer (using ArchiCAD) to be corrected.

A window that is too tall, making the ceiling visible
A window that is too tall, making the ceiling visible

An issue is created by right-clicking the result in the Results view, and selecting “Add Slide.” In addition to setting the description, a comment “This window is too tall.” is added in the comments box.  This is a BCF comment, which also saves the date the comment was made and username of the user that created it. You can also set the “BCF Status” to one of the 4 options (Error, Warning, Info, or Unknown) in the Coordination tab

Creating an Issue Details slide with a BCF comment
Creating an Issue Details slide with a BCF comment

After creating several slides of other issues, a new presentation is created from the checking results in the Communication layout.  Once the presentation is created, a report of the results is generated. In this Create Report dialog, the BCF Report v1.0 option is selected and a report is saved, which can be sent to the user of ArchiCAD.

Exporting a BCF report

This BCF file can be opened in a standalone BCF viewer, or in a BCF Manager extension installed on the building authoring tool. KUBUS BV provides BCF managers for free for many applications including ArchiCAD.  For more information on the BCF Manager and to download, please click the link: http://www.bimcollab.com/en/BCF-Manager/BCF-Manager

After the ArchiCAD user installs the KUBUS BCF Manager over ArchiCAD, the BCF file that the user of SMC sent can be opened within ArchiCAD.

Opening the BCF Manager in ArchiCAD 19

Once opened, the ArchiCAD user sees a listing of issues that were found in Solibri. Below is the issue with the clearance in front of the windows. The issue includes the comment along with the author of the comment and the date the comment was created.

Viewing issues in the BCF Manager

By double clicking on the listed issue in the BCF Manager, the components involved are isolated in a 3D view within ArchiCAD and the camera of the 3D view is moved to the same location as that of the issue in SMC.  From here, the ArchiCAD user can make the correction.

Double Clicking an issue zooms to and isolates components with issues

The ArchiCAD user adds a new viewpoint along with a comment within the KUBUS BCF Manager, that they have corrected the issue.  The status of the issue changes from “Active” to “Resolved” by clicking the Resolve button.

Adding a comment about the fix and setting the status to "Resolved"
Adding a comment/viewpoint about the fix and setting the status to “Resolved”

The SMC user receives the BCF file that the ArchiCAD user updated along with the new model with the issue corrected. The issue presentation in SMC can be updated with the ArchiCAD user’s comments and viewpoint of the issue after it was corrected by right-clicking the presentation and selecting Update Presentation from BCF.

In order to add new issues to the presentation, but allow existing issues that were resolved to remain, mark “Add new issues from the results,” but leave “Remove issues that don’t exist in results” unmarked.

Add new issues from results, but leave issues that no longer exist.
Add new issues, and leave issues that no longer exist.

The presentation is updated and the clearance in front of windows issue remains in the presentation. Notice that the results link icon RESULTS_LINK no longer exists on the slide because there is no longer a result that exists, as the issue was fixed.  Since the issue no longer exists, the SMC user can set the status to closed and a BCF comment is generated automatically that saves the date and user that closed the issue with the comment “Status changed from Resolved to Closed”.

Printable Ruleset Descriptions via Result Summary Reports

The Result Summary view allows you to export a result summary report that includes the names and descriptions of your Rules and Rulesets along with a count of results and components based on issue severity and status.  As it includes the names and descriptions of rules, this provides a simple way to view this information outside of the ruleset manager in SMC.  The following steps will walk you through exporting printable ruleset descriptions as an XLS file.

  1. Open the SMC Building sample model, that comes with Solibri Model Checker.
  2. Click the Checking layout tab, and you should see the Results Summary view under the Checking view on the left. If this view isn’t open, click the ADD_VIEW Add View button to add the view.
  3. Select a Rule or Ruleset in the Checking View to view the related Result Summary.

ITO Report Templates

In a previous article, Coordination Report Templates, we explored how to create your own custom coordination report templates.  Similar functionality exists for Information Takeoff (ITO) reports, allowing a user to create an Excel template to organize and format ITO information of a corresponding ITO Definition. Reporting, which was only briefly mentioned in the article Understanding Information Takeoff (ITO), is the focus of the article below.  You can follow along using the SMC Building.smc model that comes with Solibri Model Checker (SMC).

Upon opening the SMC Building.smc model and selecting the ITO layout, you’ll find a takeoff of the Building Element Quantities ITO definition in the Information Takeoff View.

Information Takeoff View
Information Takeoff View

Click the Report ITO Report button to open the Report Information Takeoff dialog.

Report Information Takeoff Dialog
Report Information Takeoff Dialog

This dialog provides the options of either exporting a Plain Excel Report or an Excel Template Report. With the Plain Excel Report option marked, click the Save Report button and save an XLSX file. Once saved, excel will automatically open the exported report as below:

Plain Excel ITO Report
Plain Excel ITO Report

The result is similarly formatted to what is viewed in the Information Takeoff view of SMC.

Close the Excel file, and click the Report ITO Report button again in the Information Takeoff view.

This time, mark the Excel Template Report. The Template drop-down menu is now enabled allowing you to browse to or edit an existing template or you can create an entirely new template by clicking the Create Default Button.

ITO Report templates already exist for the out-of-the-box ITO definitions that reside in the Information Takeoff folder of the program, which is why the Building Element Quantities.xls template was found and is already listed in the drop-down menu.  With this template selected, click the Save Report button and save an XLSX file.  Again, Excel will automatically open the exported report as below:

Excel Template ITO Report
Excel Template ITO Report

You can see the same information from the Information Takeoff Window is now reported with some additional information at the top of the report along with visually appealing formatting.

Close the Excel file, and click the Report ITO Report button again in the Information Takeoff view.

With the Building Element Quantities.xls template selected, click the Edit option.  Excel will open the XLS template for editing:

Building Element Quantities.xls ITO Excel Report Template
Building Element Quantities.xls ITO Excel Report Template

The screenshot above is the resulting template opened in Excel with an additional color coding of the different types of keywords. Similar to Coordination Report Templates, in order to populate the report with specific information from SMC, keywords (e.g. <FILE_NAME>) are used in a Microsoft Excel template file.  When you view one of these templates, you can easily see the keywords as they are capitalized and surrounded by “<” and “>” characters.    As with coordination templates, ITO Report templates can include multiple keywords in a single cell along with other descriptive text.

General keywords provide general information about the report such as the title, user information, a company logo, etc.  As this information pertains to a single entity, namely the report, these are the only keywords that can span multiple rows within the template.  It is important to understand that the other three types of keywords relate to multiple entities. Your model can contain multiple IFC files, multiple rulesets, and multiple components with takeoff information.  Therefore, these types of keywords must be contained within a single row amongst themselves. When a report is being written, SMC will iterate through those multiple entities creating rows one after another populating the keywords with information.

The Model keywords row should be below the rows of General keywords.  Model keywords provide information about the IFC models that are open in SMC.

Below the line of Model keywords is the <EXPECTED_RULE_SETS> keyword, which is populated by ruleset tasks.

Click the Classification_Settings Edit Information Takeoff Definition button in the Information Takeoff view.

Tasks within the Information Takeoff Definition Dialog
Tasks within the Information Takeoff Definition Dialog

You’ll find “Check and go through results of ‘BIM Validation.cset’” listed as a task for this ITO Definition.  This is a Ruleset task that was added to warn the user that this check should be run and any results reviewed before running the Takeoff to ensure the reported information is accurate.

If you do not complete this task when attempting to run the takeoff, a pop-up window appears:

BIM Validation.cset Ruleset Task in the Tasks Pop-up Window
BIM Validation.cset Ruleset Task in the Tasks Pop-up Window

The <EXPECTED_RULE_SETS> keyword will report all rulesets associated with a ruleset task that haven’t been loaded, checked, have unhandled results, or rejected issues.

The lowest row contains Column Name keywords that correspond to the Names of the columns from the Information Takeoff Definition.  As they correspond to the column names, they can be anything; however, they must match exactly and reside on a single row, as SMC will iterate through each row mapping the value in each cell of the corresponding column from the takeoff in SMC to the report.

The following is a listing of keywords that can be used in ITO Report Templates along with their description and where these can be edited:

GENERAL KEYWORDS
KEYWORD DESCRIPTION WHERE TO EDIT
<PNG_IMAGE> Your company logo or an image inserted as a picture In the Microsoft Excel Worksheet template, insert the PNG image anywhere in the sheet, and it will appear in the cell that contains.
<CURRENT_TIME> The current date/time on your computer when the report is generated
<REPORT_TITLE> The title of the report In the Information Takeoff view, click the Report button to open the Report Information Takeoff dialog and set the Report Title.

<SMC_VERSION> The version of SMC you are using (e.g. 9.6)
<EMPTY> Use this tag to designate a cell as being empty. In the Microsoft Excel Worksheet template, insert this tag as a reference for where a cell should remain empty.
MODEL KEYWORDS
KEYWORD DESCRIPTION WHERE TO EDIT
<MODEL_DISCIPLINE> The discipline (e.g. Architectural, Structural, Building Services, etc.) of a model as set in SMC Right-click the model in the Model Tree view and select Set Discipline..
<MODEL_SHORT_NAME> The short name (e.g. A, B, C, ARCH, STRUCT, MEP, etc.) of a model as set in SMC Right-click the model in the Model Tree view and select Set Short Name.
<MODEL_NAME> The filename of a model
<MODEL_TIME> The timestamp of a model
<MODEL_APPLICATION> The name of the building authoring tool (BAC) that created a model
<MODEL_TYPE> The IFC Schema (e.g. IFC2X3, IFC2X2_FINAL) of a model
RULESET TASK KEYWORD
KEYWORD DESCRIPTION WHERE TO EDIT
<EXPECTED_RULE_SETS> Rulesets specified as Ruleset Tasks that should be checked and results resolved before running the takeoff.  In the Information Takeoff View, click the Edit Information Takeoff Definition button and add/remove Ruleset Tasks

Close the excel file, and click the Classification_Settings Report button again in the Information Takeoff view.

Click the Create Default button, and save to a new xls file.

Default Template for Building Element Quantities ITO Definition
Default Template for Building Element Quantities ITO Definition

SMC auto-generates an Excel template that includes the General, File, and Ruleset Task keywords formatted as above along with Column Name keywords based on every column name that exists in the Information Takeoff Definition.   If you wish to create an ITO Report Template for one of your own ITO definitions that doesn’t come out of the box, this is the recommended way.

Modify the template however you’d like and save it for your own use as a template.

In the example below, we’ve removed the right-most Color column, modified the column headers, and changed some coloring and fonts.  Notice that though we changed the column headers in the template, the keywords still must match the column names that exist in the ITO Definition.

Coordination Report Templates

Of the many features you’ll find in Solibri Model Checker (SMC), one of the most useful is its ability to communicate information about issues within a Building Information Model (BIM)  to a design team.  One method is through a Coordination Report, which uses a Microsoft Excel Worksheet as a template thereby allowing the user to either select from one of the out-of-the-box-templates or create their own custom template.  As a Coordination Report uses Microsoft Excel as the format, it in essence is a table of issues found in the model.  The information about the issues come from the slides you create for results of checks in SMC.

Example Coordination Report
Example Coordination Report

To create a Coordination Report, after you’ve created your presentation(s) of slides of issues, click the Report button in the Presentation view.  In the Create Report dialog seen below, you can select from one of the out-of-the-box-templates or create your own by clicking the Create Default… button.

Create Report Dialog
Create Report Dialog

There are three out-of-the-box templates found in the Report Templates/Coordination Report folder of SMC.  The difference between the three templates is the amount of information about the slides from the presentation that is included in the report.  The following lists what columns are included for each template:

  • CoordinationReportTemplateSimpleReport.xls:  Number, ID, Issue Title, Picture, Issue Description, Issue Comment
  • CoordinationReportTemplate.xls: Number, ID, Location, Date, Author, Title, Picture, Issue Description, Issue comment, Responsibilities, Action Required, Action Taken, Status
  • CoordinationReportTemplateDetailedReport.xls: Number, ID, Location, Date, Author, Issue Title, Picture, Issue Description, Issue Comment, Responsibilities, Action Required, Action Taken, Status, Hyperlink 1, Hyperlink 2, Components, Topic ID

If you would like to create your own, click the Create Default… button, and SMC will create a new template with the same information contained in the CoordinationReportTemplate.xls template and open this template in Microsoft Excel for editing.

In order to populate the report with specific information from SMC, keywords (e.g. <SLIDE_ID>) are used in a Microsoft Excel template file.  When you view one of these templates, you can easily see the keywords as they are capitalized and surrounded by “<” and “>” characters.    Coordination templates can include multiple keywords in a single cell.  Also, other descriptive text can be included in the cell along with keywords.

There are four types of template keywords: General, Model, Presentation, and Slide.  General keywords provide general information about the report such as the title, user information, a company logo, etc.  As this information pertains to a single entity, namely the report, these are the only keywords that can span multiple rows within the template.  It is important to understand that the other three types of keywords relate to multiple entities. Your model can contain multiple IFC files, a report can contain multiple presentations, and a presentation contains multiple slides.  Therefore, these types of keywords must be contained on a single row amongst themselves. When a report it being written, SMC will iterate through those multiple entities creating rows one after another populating the keywords with information.

The Model keywords row should be below the rows of General keywords.  Model keywords provide information about the IFC models that are open in SMC.  Below this, the single row with Presentation keywords should be above the row containing Slide keywords.  When a report is written for multiple presentations, SMC will iterate through each presentation, first writing the row containing the presentation information, and then the rows for the slides contained in the presentation.  This is one of the reasons you shouldn’t place any keywords in rows between the row for presentation keywords and slide keywords when creating a template.  This is also a reason why a single row cannot contain keywords of different types.

Below is a screenshot of the “My Coordination Template.xmls” default template with the four keyword types highlighted in different colors:

General, Model, Presentation, and Slide Report Keywords Categories
