  • Analyze numerical model data by using custom numeric property grouping
  • Get model elements with certain property values such as Autodesk® Revit® Ids, UniFormat and MasterFormat codes
  • Override element colors based on grouping results
  • Automatically save hundreds of viewpoints based on results
  • Save model breakdowns as customized selection sets
  • Save group elements rules as XML files to use it or another project or exchange with other users

• Added option to cache categories and properties and save that cache for later use. Using cache drastically speeds up searching progress within Group Elements module. • Added option to save and load clash detection matrix. User can now create clash detection matrix based on selection set folders as long as folder contains flat list of selection or search sets. • Removed support for Navisworks 2019. From now on, we are going to support last 5 versions of Navisworks.


• Support for Navisworks 2024 • Fixed bug affecting Navisworks 2023 HTML and Image reporting
