3. The Analyze Wizard will display.  Click Next on each tab to move through the process.


Helpful Tip!

If your file exceeds 300MB,  you'll receive a pop-up giving you the option to analyze the parameters only.  We recommend trying the Full Analyze first, but if it's taking too long, use the Parameter Analyze instead.

Archicad parameters

If you select to do a Parameter Analyze, it will not include a 2D or 3D view in the Visualizer. However, you will still see yellow highlight changes in the Door & Frame Schedule and have the ability to map.

5. The Uploads tab allows users to browse and select any files to be included, e.g. floor plans, door schedules, door and frame elevations, life safety, and security plans.  These are necessary for the specification writers to proceed. If they are not ready, please send them to your ASSA ABLOY Consultant when they are available.
