The Info tool works in conjunction with the Info view and allows you to interrogate any component in the model. For example, you can use the Info tool to find out which model a component is a part of, what the GUID of the component is, what are its dimensions or any number of property sets exported from the authoring tool.
To view component properties:
Select the Info tool from the main toolbar:
Click a component in the 3D view. The component is highlighted in green, and you can see its properties in the Info view:
The Info view shows the component data that has been exported to the IFC model. The level of details depends on the selected component and the IFC export level set in the authoring tool.
In the Info view, you can see the IFC class of the component above the tabs. The number after the component (e.g. Wall 1.2.34) shows:
Running order of the floor level
Running order of the listed component in that level
The version of the component
The Info view has three types of tabs. Each tab contains different information about components:
Basic data analysed and calculated by Solibri (plain black text).
All property sets exported with the IFC file (light blue).
Hyperlinks set by the user (grey)
Fields within the tabs can be highlighted and the data copied (Ctrl + C / Cmd + C) to the clipboard for use in other applications.
In MacOS, all the tabs are of the same colour. Only one row of tabs is visible but there is an arrow you can click allowing you to scroll sideways through the list. Alternatively, if you click and hold on the arrow a popup will appear allowing you to jump directly to the tab you require.
When component highlighting is ON, the component you select is highlighted in green. To turn the highlighting OFF, click . Only one component can be highlighted, but once you have highlighted a second component, you can scroll through the previous/next components you have examined using the arrows in the top right corner of the view.
