Using the Data Table

What is the Data Table?

The Data Table is a tool that allows to colorize, sort, order and filter objects based on object attributes.

Use Data Table to display model properties, including the custom properties, in a grid view for reporting purposes. The Data Table allows grouping objects by different properties, configuring visible columns, seeing quantities and exporting to a spreadsheet in CSV format.


Choosing What to Display in the Table

Selected Objects vs. All Objects

Selected Objects
Only the selected objects are shown in the table.

All objects
All objects are shown in the Data Table, independently of their visibility in 3d view.

Parts vs. Assemblies

You can choose to show Assemblies in the Data Table by enabling the Assembly Selection mode in the toolbar.

Selected objects + Assemblies or Parts

When in the Selected objects mode, the table shows properties of currently selected objects which can be both assemblies and individual objects.

All objects + Assembly Selection Mode Enabled

All assemblies (and their properties) are shown in the Data Table, independently of their visibility in 3d view.

All objects + Assembly Selection Mode Disabled

All parts/objects (and their properties) are shown in the Data Table, independently of their visibility in 3d view.

Search for a Property Value

Use the search function to make queries against the visible data listed in the Data Table. This is a quick and easy way to search for Rebar marks or any other property values that may be of interest to you.

  • The filter will search any of the object’s attributes, not just the ones used to group or sort the objects.

  • The filtering can be cleared by clicking the Remove button next to the filter field.

  • Once the filter field is cleared, all objects are grouped and sorted as prior to filtering them.

Select in 3D

To select objects in the 3D Viewer from the Data Table, first select a row and then click the Select in 3D button.
