General Information

General information shows basic data about the clashes. Parameters such as Name, Group, Status and Comments are editable, and parameters Element 1, Element 2, Location, and Distance are read-only, obtained from the clash job and cannot be changed. Comments can be added in the form located at the bottom of the General information.

To save changes we made, click Save and all edited information will appear in the clash detection list.


With the Viewpoint creation option, you can save the corresponding view for each identified clash. In addition to a better visual overview of clashes, the created viewpoints also facilitate sending clashes through the BCF manager.

An eye icon will appear next to all clashes for which a viewpoint has been created. To create a viewpoint for a specific clash:

Activate Clash View Mode → Select clashes from the list → Click Options on the right side of the Clash detection tab → Click Show Details from the drop-down menu → Select Viewpoint from the drop-down menu: General Information, Linked Documents and Viewpoint → Click Create.

At any moment, a created view can be removed using the Clear option or updated with a new one (From Current view) or a previously created one (From Viewpoint…).

Viewpoint will not appear when you select multiple clashes. It only becomes visible when a single clash is selected.
