I have eagerly reviewed the student projects and I have a very important recommendation: they should audit the published BIMx files because they have publication or layout errors.
thank you

In the large scale residential model I can only see a part of the building. See the snapshot (with all layers activated). I wonder if this is intentional or maybe an error?

@benedek thank you so much for asking !

Checking the project .pla - you can actually see the whole 3d model - show all in 3D and in the BIMx file you can also check the full model in BIM view.

So i think it is a visibility issue, hope this helped 🙂01 copy.jpg

@IMBC-1974 Thank you so much for being keen about checking these projects .

We highly appreciate your interest and your positive recommendation, the idea was to post student's .PLA and BIMx work in the way they sent it to us for BIM Project 2020 Winner and the way they wanted us to see their work. 

 

But we will make sure to edit their work more and take your review into consideration for future students sample project articles, so thank you !
