Add Geometry Tags
This tool adds a new Geometry Tag property (text) to all objects that have a 3D geometry. If two objects have a identical geometry they will get the same tag. This is true also when the geometries are rotated differently. As a result the Geometry Tag property will have a unique value for each unique geometry in the model.
This tool is useful for example when you trim unnecessary detail from a structural steel model.
- Create a Custom Quick Select that is not bound to any object class
- Activate the custom Quick Select
- In the 3D palette select one object you want to exclude, for example a bolt. This will automatically select all bolts with a identical geometry.
- Drag and drop the selected objects into the Excluded 3D bucket
