Filtering a 3D model helps you easily visualize your project data details. On the 3D controls tool bar, click Filter and select only the filters you are interested in viewing.

To view only these model elements

Do this

That are in a specific model file, such as architecture, HVAC, etc.

On the FILES tab, select only the files that you want to view. You can see only model elements that are in the selected files.

That are on a specific level or floor

On the LEVELS tab, select only the levels that you want to view. You can see only model elements that are on the selected level.

Such as slabs, walls, etc.

On the TYPES tab, select only elements that you want to view.

That are planned or scheduled

On the WBS tab, select a WBS item. If the work packages under the selected WBS item have model elements, you can see them in the 3D space.

Based on their properties, such as area, code, volume, etc.

On the ADVANCED tab, define a condition using the model element and related property. If there are model elements that meet the condition, you can see them in the 3D space.

You can add multiple conditions.

You can apply a combination of filters

For example, let's say you want to see all the round-columns on first level. In the following sample procedure, we will see how to combine level and property filters to see only the round-columns on first level.

  1. On the LEVELS tab, select only the first floor.

    You can see that only the model elements on the first floor are visible in the 3D space.

  2. On the ADVANCED tab, click Add and select Column from the Classification list.

  3. From the Property list box, select Family.

  4. From the Condition list, select contains.

  5. For Value, type round.

    You can see that only the round columns on the first level are visible in the 3D space.

Similarly, you can combine the filters and see only those model elements that you want to see.
