|Abstract:||This guide describes how to use SteelVis and its associated programs. SteelVis has two main functions: (1) to translate a CIS/2 (CIMsteel Integration Standards) file into an interactive 3D model in the form of a VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) file that can be displayed in a web browser VRML plugin or VRML viewer and (2) to translate a CIS/2 file into an IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) file that can be imported into many BIM (Building Information Modeling) applications. SteelVis also includes a utility that converts a CIS/2 file into a spreadsheet that can be used for inspecting and debugging the attributes, values, and relationships in the CIS/2 file.|
