AS (Architectural/Structural) Isolator allows you to isolate specific AS items. You can isolate by:
AS Isolator gives you total control over how you view your model, allowing you to select the Categories, Families, or Types that you want isolated. You can select items from either the current model or any linked models by using the setting on the dialog.
Parts work seamlessly by using their original Category, Family, or Type!
For the isolated items, you choose the isolate color.
For the non-isolated items, you can choose whether or not to change the color of those items and which color to use. You also decide if you want those items hidden or transparent!
For MEP items, you decide if you want them hidden or transparent.
You can also apply your settings to either the active view or all open views.
By using the Load and Save icons at the top of the dialog, you can load and save isolate sets. Save a set called "Structural Columns" and quickly retrieve that set in any model!
You can quickly remove any isolation by select the "Remove Isolation" button from the ribbon. You can also quickly isolate any selected item's Category, Family, or Type by using the appropriate button.
Loading an isolated set is accessible from the Add Isolation button's pulldown menu. Selecting this will allow you to select a saved set stored on your computer.
The Remove Isolation button also has a pulldown menu. This menu allows you to Re-Isolate using the latest isolate settings for the current view. Great for toggling between an isolated view and the original view!
