Power bi integration
Vcad is the software that connects the world of BIM with the Business Intelligence tools of Power BI and with the Power Platform of Microsoft, in a unique and innovative way. This integration makes it possible to import, transform and link to the model, data from external sources and with different formats; it allows for advanced analysis this data, creation of reports and dashboards; it also allows distribution and sharing of the extracted data and of the model to a large number of users.
Vcad’s Custom Visual offers complete support for viewing and interacting with the 3D model and is able to automatically import the data present in the Ifc, Revit and Navisworks models into Power BI. Ready-made and preconfigured Power BI templates are also made available to the user; the templates allow you to have complete reports available in a few seconds.
AUTODESK FORGE OR OPEN VIEWER
The ability to choose the used technology – open source or Autodesk Forge – for managing and viewing BIM files has been developed to cover the widest possible range of configuration and use scenarios. Vcad also has numerous native features regardless of the viewer used.
With Vcad you can hide objects individually or by type, as well as filter the model by floor; you can group element using, for example, colors or specific characteristics; you can animate the model based on data in the reports such as dates of installation, delivery or maintenance of items.
The use cases are infinite, just think of the possibility of consulting the data of each individual asset in the model, or the possibility of highlighting, through colors, specific parts of the design and spaces, or the ease of querying the model, which the combination of Vcad and Power BI make natural.
This example is a comparison template between two different versions of the same model.
