Join Jim Cowan for an in-depth discussion in this video Search sets for rendering materials, part of Navisworks Advanced.
- [Instructor] This is one example…of the application of search sets.…So in a new NWF file with the working workspace,…if I say append, and I'm using the project…that's called Conference Center,…Conference Center and NWC files.…These are actually delivered with the product…under the sample projects, but architecture,…MEP and structure.…
So if I open these, there's my building,…and what I was wanting to bring home…is the benefit of being able to reuse search sets,…so if I open the sets window, and I say import search sets.…I provided them under the standards and search sets.…
Under architecture, you'll find them in their…Conference Center Search Sets.…So if I select that, and bring them in,…you'll see that these are already defined searches.…For example, if I looked at the exterior brick,…if I looked under find items, you'll see that…what it's doing is looking for a category,…element, name, contains, exterior,…element, name, contains, brick.…
So it's looking at the data, and finding those objects.…Now what I want to show is that that was a quick way…
