New 'Section' Option in the Models Tool
Procore has added a new sectioning feature to the Models tool in the Procore iOS app. See Use the Section Tool on a Model (iOS). The Section tool in the model viewer allows builders and contractors to effectively visualise and analyse the internal structure of a building (such as the placement of pipes, ducts and electrical systems). Builders and contractors can identify potential clashes or conflicts between different systems before construction begins, helping to reduce errors and improve the overall efficiency of the building process.
The Section tool can also be used during the construction phase to perform virtual inspections of the building, to ensure that the building is constructed according to the design specifications and meets all safety and regulatory requirements. By using the Section tool, inspectors can identify potential issues early and make necessary modifications before construction is completed.
