Tracer Tutorial – Troubleshooting Large Mesh Strings in Power BI

Power BI reports have a known character limit of 32,766 characters which can make it problematic to load very large text strings into the report environment. This can have impacts on the Tracer visuals ability to parse larger Revit mesh strings (gLTF) that Power BI has automatically truncated in the report environment.

This video demonstrates a workaround for working with large strings of data and getting them to display.

– Understand Power BI’s text character limits
– Show a workflow for splitting strings into multiple columns
– Show how to recombine (concatenate) mesh strings as a custom column
