Join Jim Cowan for an in-depth discussion in this video Search sets for Appearance Profiler, part of Navisworks Advanced.
- [Instructor] This is to show how you can use,…in Navisworks it's called the appearance profiler.…This is used to color code objects in the model.…For example, if you wanted your domestic cold water…to show as blue, and your domestic hot water…to show as red, you can create settings…and use them not just in this one Navisworks file,…but it's something you can save and reuse in the future.…
So I'm going to start by saying, I'm going to do this…for the school, if I say append,…school, Navisworks, NWC files, pushed out from Revit.…I'm going to use the project internal,…and I'm only interested in the moment…in the structure and the MEP.…
So I've got these here in my model.…I can look at the objects, and I can create search sets…to find those objects, but I've already got them,…and I want to reuse them in here.…So what I'm going to do is say, under the search sets,…import, search sets, look at the standards provided,…the one that says search sets for MEP,…Revit MEP search sets.…
Open, bring them in.…You see that what I can be doing here is I can be…
