Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Appearance Profiler, part of Navisworks 2017 Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] Here's the thing.…A lot of times, you want specific objects…to be a specific color, always.…The problem is, when we export or open a Revit model,…it's going to view whatever color Revit…feels like making it.…We can change that.…But the cool thing is,…we can set a profile so when we bring in another item,…if it matches the profile,…it'll automatically update to that color.…Let's get started by jumping into Navisworks.…On the Quick Access Toolbar,…I'm going to click Open,…browse to where you're keeping your Revit models,…and I'm going to grab the Structural model.…
Now I'm going to click Open.…It takes a little longer to open a Revit model…because what it's doing is actually making an NWC model.…There we go.…Now I'm going to pan around…so we can see it like this.…I'm going to go to my Selection tree,…I'm going to expand Structural,…I'll hold down my Control key…and select everything that says Analytical.…I'm going to right click, and I'm going to Hide.…Now what we need to do is go to the Viewpoint tab…
