You can create selection rules that allow users to select specific groups of components based on component properties or relationships in Smart Construction models and drawings. These selection rules can be based on a combination of an interface definition and property definition, or they can be based on navigating a relationship definition or properties on a relationship definition. You can configure selection rules based on delivered interface definitions, property definitions, and relationship definitions. Or you can create custom selection rules based on custom interface definitions, property definitions, and relationship definitions.
The following topics describe how to configure filter categories based on delivered Smart Construction properties. For information on how to configure filter categories for custom properties, see Create a Custom Selection Rule.
