How to Use Filter

Objective:
Use Filter to select the structural framing on 3/F and add the selected objects into a construction task.

Step 1: Open Menu



Step 2:
Method A: Click “Filter”


Method B: Click “4D Simulation” and click “Object Filters”



Step 3: Click “New” to create a new filter



Step 4: Click “New” to create a filter rule



Step 5: Click the drop down box and click “Category”



Step 6: Check the box “Structural Framing”. Click “Apply”



Step 7: Click “New” to add another filter rule for filtering the Level of the structural framing



Step 8: Click the drop down box and click “Parameter”



Note: You can check the parameter of an item by clicking it



Step 9: Click the drop down box for Filter By. Enter the first few letters of “Reference Level” and the parameter will appear in the middle of the drop down selections. Click “Reference Level”.



Step 10: Click the drop down box for Operator and click “Equal To”



> Equal To: the object will be selected when its value is equivalent to the filter value (please note that it is case-sensitive)
> Greater Than: the object will be selected when its value is greater than the filter value
> Greater Or Equal: the object will be selected when its value is greater than or equal to the filter value
> Less Than: the object will be selected when its value is less than the filter value
> Less Or Equal: the object will be selected when its value is less than or equal to the filter value
> Not Equal: the object will be selected when its value is not equal to the filter value
> Contains: the object will be selected when its value contains the same character or number in the filter value. e.g. if the filter value is “Wall”, objects with value “Wall Centerline” will be highlighted



> Within: the object will be selected when its object value is equal to one of the value in the filtered column. Please see the example below:

In this example, the value under the column “Text” are “A1010100” and “B2020200”, therefore the object with the Assembly Code “A1010100” which matches one of the value in the “Text” column is highlighted.


Step 11: Click the drop down box for Value. Enter the first few letters of “118976” and the value will appear in the middle of the drop down selections. Click “118976”.



Step 12: Click “Apply”


Step 13: Check the box “All Rules Apply”.
Note:
If the box “All Rules Apply” is unchecked, the object that fulfills only one of the filter rules will be highlighted.



Step 14: Double click the filter name to rename it.



Step 15: Click “Close”



Step 16: Click “Highlight” to check which objects are selected by the filter.



Step 17: Create a construction task in 4D Simulation.
