COBie Data

COBie data is information on a building's facilities, floors, spaces, systems, equipment, and so on. This information is stored in a simple and structured format, separate from the geometry.

In the IFC Viewer, COBie data displays in a tree view in the COBie tab of the Model Information panel. The tree view contains nodes for each maintainable asset of the model, organized by parent-child relationship. For example, the tree view contains a node for each floor in a building, and you can expand the node for a floor to see nodes for each space it contains.

You can use the tree view to interact with the model. For example, you can hover your cursor over a floor in the tree view to highlight the floor and its spaces within the model. You can also use the tree view to view and edit asset data. See Edit COBie Data for more information.
