The User interface have been simplified to make it easier for beginners to start using BIMFIRE Tools.

 

The methodology using BIMFIRE have been more streamlined to increase the design process.

 

New set of icons for all functions

 

 

General 

Default parameters to delivery to other stakeholders in the project, now have a prefix “FireReq_” instead of “Fire_”.

 

This should clarify that the parameters delivered are the requirement from the Fire Safety Engineer (FSE).

 

Parameters to control the dimensions on the families, GUID, info etc still have “Fire_” as a prefix to differentiate the two different parameters.

 

Content have been updated to be in three sizes, small (symbols are in general 500x500mm), Medium (1000x1000mm) and Large (1500x1500mm). The size is controlled by instance with parameters 1_S, 1_M & 1_L.

 

General update for the visual style of the content to mimic SS-EN ISO 7010:2020

 

Increased the number of families included in the installation.
