Follow the “ Edit > Preferences ” fields to make adjustments to the program.


  • You can make general adjustments about the program with “General”.

  • In the first person view feature, you can change the preference to pass through the window and glass structures in the Pass Through Windows / Glaze Panel Feature”

  • With “Camera Culling Distance”, you can adjust the distance of the object from the camera. If your camera distance is above a certain level, the camera will not show your subject.
  • You can select the format you want to see in the program from the “Date Format for Display” field.

  • You can change the file date format that you will transfer in the program in the “Date Format for Import” field.

Filter Settings

  • The filter settings tab lets you specify which ifc codes shall be omitted from filtering lists. These items are either always on or always off.

  • Default settings are as shown in the image below. New items can be added to the list ensuring there is comma between element names.
Warning: The codes are case sensitive. Important Note: Turning off Important IFC Elements in IFC Codes AlwaysON list (like Dynamic Model or IFC site) may cause unwanted results like the whole model disappearing. By default the IFC format creates all elements under these items.

Revised IFC Settings

  • Compare XBIM Data: If additional data is present on the IFC File (ifc properties or additional properties from the design software), this data can be compared as well when importing the revised file. It should be noted that this comparison can take an extensive amount of time depending the size of the original and revised projects.

  • Compare Visuals: This checkbox will include comparison of materials and colors for identifying differences. Warning: This is a very time consuming process and disable by default.

  • #of Vertices for Comparison: When identifying the changes to the current elements a specified amount of vertices are compared to identify changed elements. Vertice comparison is a processor intensive job and may take considerable amount of time when comparing two elements having vertices over 1000. To optimize comparison duration, BimCrone’s smart algorithms only compares the specified amounts of vertices and assume that meshes are identical if the specified amount of vertices are identical.
