Introduced in 12d Model 15, MetaConnex is a suite of tools for creating, editing and manipulating attributes.

When used alongside other 12d options like mapfiles and the attribute manipulator, MetaConnex’s power lies in not just helping to meet your projects BIM and Digital Engineering requirements, but ensures that required attributes on your data exist and checks that the values meet a specific schema.

Watch the video below to get an idea of the functionality of the MetaConnex Tools.

  • MetaConnex Validate
  • MetaConnex Apply
  • MetaConnex Set
