BIMCAVE Auto Search Set



Search Sets are very powerful tool and can be used in many ways in Autodesk® Navisworks®. However it is generally time consuming to create multiple Search Sets for different value of a property. This App does the job for you and Auto creates the Search Sets.

The App creates multiple Search Sets in a very short time for using in Clash Detection, Auto-Attach to Timeliner, Create Viewpoints, Hide/Unhide Elements easily and even for many more function. You may simply use to create Search Set for every Element Type or MEP Systems. Moreover if you have parameters defined, you may create your Search Sets for BOQ items or WBS codes in one click.


You may create Search Sets for Entire Project or for only Selected Items. Also you can use the Contains option to create Search Sets that contains the value of the property.

    This is a must have and integral to many of my workflows.

    I am getting more than a little impatient waiting for 2019 version, but wouldn't want to rush this team.

    Thank you for this invaluable tool and for keeping it a free app.

    There is very little that I ever give 5 stars - anywhere - for anything.

    This is a great tool for Navisworks 2017 and of course I would like to use it with version 2018 as well. After installing 2018 I have realized that BIMCAVE Auto Search Set currently works only with 2017. Do you plan to update the plugin in the short future? Thank you in advance!
