Applications with a "Bill of quantities" tab
In version 2023.b, job certificates were included in the “Bill of quantities” tab of the applications. However, the only way to produce a certificate was to indicate a value for the quantity executed in each detail line. This could be a problem when a certificate for an item or a complete work section was required.
To improve this aspect, in version 2023.c a “Certify” button has been added to the “Certificates” section of each concept (the root of the bill of quantities, work section, item and detail line). When clicking on it, a panel with the following options is displayed:
- Certify by percentage of partial measurement
- Certify by quantity of partial measurement
- Certify by partial amount
- Certify by percentage of measurement at origin
- Certify by quantity of measurement at origin
- Certify by amount at origin
Once the panel has been accepted, the result of the concept is then passed through to the certified quantity value associated with the detail lines.
As of version 2023.c, the job certificates defined in the “Bill of quantities” tab of the applications can be exported to the BIMserver.center project. The job certificates are generated according to the FIEBDC-3 standard (.bc3). Consequently, each certification is contained in a file with a different “.bc3” extension. The name of the file that includes the certificate (at source) appears under the same name as the bill of quantities file, adding (by concatenation) “#certificateNNNN”, where NNN is the number of the certificate.
As of version 2023.c, the graphic information and attached documents associated with the concepts that make up the bill of quantities can be exported to the BIMserver.center project. The linking of these documents with the concepts is carried out in the standardised file FIEBDC-3 (.bc3) according to its specification.
Open BIM Quantities can read the graphical information and attached documents from BIMserver.center project bills of quantities that come from the “Bill of quantities” tab in applications that include it. These can be added to the bill of quantities in Open BIM Quantities using the “Bills of quantities included in the BIM project” option available from the toolbar in the “Quantities of the BIM model” tab.
A new button has been added to the detail lines of the bill of quantities tree. This allows the BIM objects associated with the detail line to be framed in the 3D view. As a result, it makes it easier to locate the components in space.
This feature is equivalent to “Zoom into component” from the BIM model which has been available in the “Quantities of the BIM model” tab of Open BIM Quantities since version 2023.a.
The “Filter” tool available in the “View” group of the toolbar has been improved. In previous versions, only a list of labels could be entered and the program displayed the quantity detail lines that contained them all. Now, logical operators (AND/OR) can be used, as well as different types of conditions (equals, does not equal, is greater than, contains, etc.).
The “Filter” tool is also available when generating documents and exporting them to the standard FIEBDC-3 format (.bc3).
