Project Preview

You can paste a PhotoRendered image as a Project Preview.

1.Create a Rendered view of your project and save the picture.

2.Go to File > Info > Project Preview & Architect Credits in BIMx.

3.Use Browse, Drag and Drop, or Copy-Paste to add the picture to Project Preview window:


Note: For best results, the image should be 320×240 pixels in size, a 4:3 ratio. If the image is another size, it will be cropped so as to achieve a 4:3 ratio and to fit the 320×240 pixel size.

Note: If you drag and drop, make sure you save the picture in JPEG format.

This preview is shown in the File > Open dialog box in order to make the identification of files easier. (This image will serve as the icon for the project file in Windows Explorer, replacing the standard ARCHICAD icon.)

On Mac:

The model’s preview picture, if any, will be visible in the Finder in the following locations:

•Finder window (Icon view)

•Finder window (Cover Flow view)

•Get Info window preview

•Quick Look window appearing for multiple selected elements (Thumbnail view)
