All Elements in Active View


#1

Hello! I’m trying to find a way to isolate the exterior curtain walls on a large project. I was expecting the “All Elements In Active View” node to do the trick. In order to do a test I created a new 3D view and isolated (“hide element”) all but two small curtain wall elements. What’s confusing to me is that the “All Elements In Active View” node is pulling all 13,000 curtain wall elements and ignoring the hide function. Is there a way to pull data based on a 3D view that only shows the items in the view? Thanks!

Try the following. It searches all wall types for “curtain” and anything that comes up true gets isolated in the view. Requires clockwork to be installed.
