Create Space Folder - Intergraph Smart 3D - Help

Intergraph Smart 3D Space Management

Intergraph Smart 3D

Creates a new hierarchical folder for organizing your space objects. You can create an indefinite hierarchy of spaces. You must create space folders in a permission group with write access or more in order to be able to add volumes to the space folders.

You can create folders to provide a hierarchical storage system for the space objects that you create in the Space Management task, just as you use folders to organize information in a filing cabinet.

The Space tab of the Workspace Explorer displays all the volumes in the workspace in a classification hierarchy that reflects the various relationships defined for the space objects. The content represents the current space objects loaded from the database into the active workspace. When you select a space object in the Workspace Explorer, the object appears highlighted with the select color in the active graphic view. Additionally, the software defaults to edit mode and displays the Edit Volume ribbon, which you can use to modify the selected space object.
