From the Autodesk App Store:
Search sets can provide useful tools to help the personnel in
the field locate a piece of fabrication in the model. In
order for this workflow to be used, the spool names must be
located on a property that is exposed in Autodesk® Navisworks®.
An example of this would be on Fabrication CADmep+ parts.
The actual “Spool Name” data is not exposed in Navisworks
as a property, but the “Notes” data is. The same workflow
can be used for Revit Elements or any other part that has the
spool name on a property exposed in Navisworks. For more
on how to make this process work for you, and for a tool to
automatically put the data in the “Spool Name” field into the
“Notes” field for Fabrication MEP, see the post
“Creating Navis Spool Search Sets”. The “Spool To
Search Set” tool will go through the model and find the unique
property values on different parts in the model. This can
be done either through a selection, or on the entire model.
