Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video The Selection Tree, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
…Look at the Selection Tree as our own private little explorer.…This is where every element in the entire model is stored.…You may already know that the Selection Tree can help us navigate…through the model and allow us to zoom in on specific elements.…This tree looks different between an NWD and an NWF file,…and we will look at the specific differences between the two.…The objective of this video is to explain how the Selection Tree…works, and what the differences are between an NWD and an NWF file.…To begin with, open up…the NavisworksEssential.nwd file and follow along.…
If our Selection Tree is not visible, go to the Home tab and click on Selection…Tree to make sure you either have a tab, or it's visible in your drawing window.…Expand the Selection Tree and we can see that we're in the standard view.…We can either go standard, compact, or the properties of the view.…Let's keep it at standard for now.…What I'd like to do is drill into NavisworksEssential.NWD.…See now that this is an NWD type file.…Our NWC files are out-cached inside of the main file.…
