Free Spools To Search Sets Add-in for Navisworks


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.
