To reuse the existing models you have drawn or received from others, you can use the Import Model function.
- On the BIM Model tab, in the Cubic Model group, click Import Model.
- In the Import Model File box, you can see the procedure of importing model files: Select File > Match Settings > Import Scope > Complete.
(1) In the Select File page, select the project file you want to import, and then click Start.
(2) In the Match Settings page, select the zone to which you want the project to import, and then click Next.
(3) In the Import Scope page, select the zones, floors and elements you want to import, and then click Next.
(4) In the Complete page, click Finish, and then you can view the imported project in the drawing area. To know the import details, click View Merge Log.
- With Import Model, you can import files in the formats of *.cubic, *.TAS, *.TRB2, *. TRBMod.
- Except rebar, you can import all models and entities in TRB C into TAS C.
- When loading the project file, the version number, version number, and measurement rule will be checked. Please make sure they are consistent with that of your project. If not, the import will fail.
- If the floor heights are inconsistent, the Match Settings page will be shown as follows:
Please select Reversely Create or Import by floor height of current project based on your own needs.
If the file you import is exported by entity, there will be no constraints on floor height when importing it.
- If the entities imported are overlapping with existing entities, the following prompt will appear in the Complete page:
Please select the corresponding options based on your own needs.
- If the file you import is in the format of *.TRB2 or *.TRBMod, the Import Scope page will be shown as follows:
Please select the zones, floors, and element types you want to import as needed.
- If the file you import is in the format of *.cubic and the *.cubic file is generated by exporting model by entity, the import procedure will be much simpler. After clicking Start in the Select File page, the entities to import will appear in the drawing area temporarily for you to specify the insertion point. Once the insertion point is determined, the model import is completed.
- To import a whole TAS project regardless of floors, open the TAS project to import, go to Start > Options > File > File Security, select Save model files when projects are saved, and then save the project. After that, open your own project, and use Import Model to import the corresponding TAS project file.
