If you haven't tested our Demo Dashboard yet, we recommend you give it a go before exploring other possibilities for our custom visual. In the Sample Dashboards folder, you'll find the following sample files:

  • Example - Model Data and Custom Visual

  • Example - Smart Groups Data Validation and Custom Visual

Model Data and Custom Visual

The above sample dashboard shows you an example of how our custom visual can interact with the graphs built using model data. Here are the API requests used to achieve this:

  • idmap is an API query to 3D Repo to retrieve the Unity_id values. We use them as values for our custom visual to know which model elements to highlight.

  • metadata is an API query to 3D Repo that retrieves object parameters and their values. Also known as BIM Data.

Smart Groups Data Validation and Custom Visual

The above sample dashboard shows you an example of how our custom visual can interact with the graphs built using the Smart Groups data. It's a great way for you to visualise where specific data resides in the context of your model. Alternatively, you may use it to check your model's compliance against the information deliverable requirements on your project. Here are the API requests used to achieve this:

  • idmap is an API query to 3D Repo to retrieve the Unity_id values. We use them as values for our custom visual to know which model elements to highlight.

  • groups is an API query to 3D Repo that returns a list of all the groups attached to the model.
