Expand 'Local' or 'Shared' and select a smart view set in which you want to create the new smart view If necessary, you can create a new smart view set by clicking the [+] button, or by right clicking on 'Local' or 'Shared' and choosing 'Add smart view set'. The new set will be automatically selected once created
Click the [+] button again to create a new smart view in the selected smart view set
You can share smart views with your team by dragging and dropping smart views from 'Local' to 'Shared', or by immediately creating it in 'Shared'. When you want to create a smart view in 'Shared', make sure you are connected to the correct space and project, and that you have Zoom editing rights in the project. A Zoom license is also required to share, import or export Smart Views in BIMcollab Zoom.
Give your smart view a clear and unique name
Define a set of rules to define which elements will be shown and colored by the smart view. Add rules by clicking on the button, delete existing rules with the button, or duplicate existing rules by clicking on the button. By default, the first line adds all elements in the project to the 3D view. Each rule exists of:
An Element type you want to add to filter (e.g. walls, doors, columns)
A Property, Operator and Value to be used to filter out elements with a specific property value
An action which defines whether the elements found should be added or removed from the set, and if they should get an override
Test the set by clicking on the play button to show the selected set
Provide the smart view with a clear description so its purpose is easily identifiable.
If you have chosen the action 'Auto color' in the set of rules, you can also define an Auto color property listing(functionality under license) An additional numeric property is added to the autocolor legend when the smart view is executed. Choose the property to be listed as well as the desired value
Click on 'Save'
Once the smart view has been created, you can execute the smart view
By double clicking on it, the filter and coloring will be carried out on the model in the 3D view
Right-click to show for components in My view
The different actions
When creating a set of components to be shown by the smart view, you can perform multiple actions on the chosen components:
The components are added to the 3D view.
Make sure the first rule of the smart view always contains an 'Add' action, otherwise the view will be empty.
Remove The components are removed from the previously added set of components
Remove others All components, except for those with the chosen property, are removed from the 3D view
Set colored The chosen components get the chosen color override
Set transparent The chosen components are set transparent
Set opaque The chosen components are set opaque
Add & set colored Combines the Add and set colored actions into one rule
Add & set transparent Combines the Add and set transparent actions into one rule
And... Add multiple properties for the same elements. Only elements which meet all properties in the sequence will be added
Auto color Color code all the chosen components based on the indicated property. All components with the same unique value for the chosen property will get the same color The colors with the corresponding values will be shown in the auto color legend after executing the smart view
