Navisworks: Unhide before Clash Detective

A common workflow in Navisworks is to use 'Find Items' to make 'Search Sets' of similar items. Often, people will use 'Hide Unselected' to confirm that 'Find Items' worked. Problem is, the 'Clash Detective' will only find clashes in visible objects. To fix this, make sure that you toggle the 'Hide Unselected' button so that the entire model is showing before running 'Clash Detective'.

Autodesk should modernize the 'Find Items' tool to be more 'Google-Like' as well as more visual.

Revit Architecture 2013 Bundle Released!

Join me on this 18 hour journey of a Revit project. We will start with client sketches and a blank screen and then move right on to explore schematic forms, coordinate with consultants and produce construction documents. Along the way we use industry-tested Revit best practices to develop our design. Since collaboration is key to the BIM process, we will use worksharing for internal collaboration and file linking for external collaboration. You will not only learn to use Revit, you will understand the workflow and actually have fun on the way!
