NEW in Tracer V3 for Revit

Exporting Revit Data

This tutorial reviews the process for using Tracer V3 to export Revit data and connecting to the data with Power BI using the Tracer templates with the 3D Power BI visual.

Importing the Tracer 3D Visual into Power BI

This tutorial covers how to import the Tracer 3D Power BI Visual (*.PBIVIZ file) into a Microsoft Power BI report.

Updating to the V3 3D Power BI Visual

This tutorial reviews the recommended updating process for updating to the Tracer V3 3D Power Bi visuals in your reports. The V3 visual introduces numerous changes to the visual so it is recommended that users create a new V3 version in their reports.

NEW Power BI Format Settings in Tracer V3

This tutorial introduces how to set up and format the Tracer 3D Power BI visual to view 3D Revit data. The 3D Power BI visual included Tracer V3 contains numerous visual performance enhancements and formatting settings to improve the user experience for integrating 3D within the Microsoft Power BI environment.

NEW Support for Conditional Formatting in Power BI

This video covers how the 3D Power BI visual included in Tracer 3D supports Conditional Formatting for color coding objects in Power BI. Conditional formatting is a great way to create heat maps!

NEW Options for Multi-View Navigation

This tutorial covers new options available for leveraging the 3D visuals “view” input and displaying categorized model geometry within multiple viewports within the 3D Power BI visual. In V3, we introduced new options for independent camera navigation for multiple views.

NEW Context Geometry Inputs

This tutorial introduces the concept of using “Context” inputs to Tracer’s 3D Power BI visual. ‘Context’ inputs are a way to flag geometry to be behave as ‘background’ information with separate visualization settings. This example shows two separate models with elements from one model being used as ‘context” for coordination purposes.

NEW 2D Visual Conditional Formatting

Tracer V3 introduces updates to the 2D visual for displaying GeoJSON data records exported from Revit for use in Power BI. In addition to new formatting options, the 2D visual introduces the ability to use Conditional Formatting to control object colors and heatmaps

NEW 2D Visual Context Geometry

Tracer V3 introduces the concept of ‘context geometry’ to the 2D visual. Context geometry is a way to flag GeoJSON objects so they can act as “background” geometry with different display settings.
