Most interaction with the plugin happens through the main window, the “BIM-Tools menu”.
At the top of the window there are buttons for the most basic actions
Toggle between source-faces and BIM-geometry.
Remove BIM-geometry and all associated data. Only keep the original faces.
Below are the different menu sections
Some sections expand automatically based on the current selection.
Entity Info: View and change properties of selected BIM-objects. Usage is similar to the main SketchUp “Entity Info”-window.
Create walls from edges: Expands when the current selection contains “edges”. Places vertical walls on top of the edges.
Create thick faces: Expands when the current selection contains “faces”. Converts the selected faces into building objects.
Edit project properties: Here you can enter the project-name, description etc. Mainly for usage with IFC-export.
Export to IFC: Creates an IFC-file containing the building elements in the same folder as the SketchUp file.
