The only thing you need to do to use BIM Compare is upload your model to

The Steps:

  1. Go to your Project Settings page

  2. Go to the "Upload BIM" tab

  3. Upload your model!

We recommend uploading a single NWD (Navisworks Export) file that includes everything in your project - the coordinated model. The reason we recommend uploading the coordinated model is because only one model file can be added to each OpenSpace project.

Saved views in an NWD file will not be accessible in the BIM Viewer, so we recommend removing saved views before exporting the NWD file from Navisworks.

The BIM Viewer is built as an integration with Autodesk's Forge Viewer API, so any file type compatible with their Forge Viewer is acceptable (NWD, RVT, FBX, Etc.).

We cannot align your Model to a floor plan until you have performed a 360 Video Captures on that floor plan. If you add new floors, or if you perform 360 Video Captures on new floors, please reach out to to ask us to align your model to these new areas.

Please note - if you upload a new model to your OpenSpace Project, we will need to re-align it to your captures.
