Model Component - Type
Model Component is a generic term for the following component types in BIMQ: models, elements, groups, geometry, properties, values.
“Model” refers to a model of a certain discipline that is created by the responsible specialist planner in his BIM software. Each specialist model is used like a container for model elements. It is necessary to define the models required in the project so that each element can later be assigned to one or more specialist models.
“Object” or model element is a digital representation of a real component in a model. The objects are assigned according to an element classification or an element catalog, under models. This includes element classifications such as Omniclass or DIN 276-2, and others. Elements are defined as an type "Object".
"Group" can be used to group elements, geometries or properties.
"Geometry" is the definition of the geometric level of detail of an element. The term Level of Geometry (LOG) is used to describe the level of detail.
"Property" or attribute or parameter is an indication that reflects the physical, functional or other properties of a model element.
"Value" is the information entered for a property. The values can be created in the sense of a selection list for the individual properties, e.g. if a selection set with specified values exists, for example for the compressive strength class "C20 / 25, C25 / 30, ...", or the conversion status "new, existing, ...".
