Linking Model Objects to Topics
Link Model Objects to a Topic
If a Topic is relevant to a particular model object or objects, you can associate the object(s) to a Topic.
In addition to View based model object linking, it is possible to save model object identifiers as references / attachments into the Topic data.
Important: When using the “Link selected” objects feature, the model object identifiers are saved into the Topic data as references / attachments. This is different from the Topic views based model object linking which is the primary way to link model objects in the BCF standard. If the intended workflow includes exchanging BCF Topics with other applications using the import & export feature or via a BCF API integration, it is recommended to use the Topic View based object linking instead.
The objects will be linked to the Topic. The total number of linked objects can be seen in the Linked model objects section title.
Remove Linked Objects
The objects will be unlinked from the Topic. The total number of linked objects can be seen in the Linked model objects section title.
Alternatively, you can unlink all model objects by selecting the objects in 3D and clicking “Unlink selected”. All linked model objects can be cleared by selecting the “Unlink all” option from the context menu.
