    Grid Filter

    I thought this would work, but it didn't. It may not be possible, but here's what I did:

    I have 2 structural grids set up, one on the basement level and one on the finished floor level. In my basement section, I only want to see the grid bubbles associated with the basement. So, I set up a filter for grids set to Name is less than 7. My thought was that it would filter all the grid bubble with a name greater than 7. Well, it didn't work.

    I know I can just select the grids I don't want and hide them, but is there an easier, more automatic way to do it? What about a scope box? I've never used them before so I don't know much about them. Suggestion?

    I'll also need to do the same thing in the other direction, but those grids are labeled with letters instead of numbers.

    Grids show wherever the cut is...so if you have grids that don't want to show on level one you need to change the 3D constraints of the basement grids to be below the view cut of the next level. In elevations where you want to have all the grid bubbles aligned be sure you change the grid to 2D in those views so that they don't pop back up on your floor plans.

      Filters work fine with Grids. We use them all the time. I have Filters set up that read a Text Field parameter that goes in to all Levels and Grids... In the template.

        Scope boxes would work. But Aaron is correct that filters can be applied to grids. 2012-01-05_1054 - Alex_Cunningham's library even OOTB grids. Simply create a filter and make a new grid type. We use this method for Section, Elevations, Levels, and Grids for Arch vs Struct.

          Ahhh, new grid type. :banghead: Didn't even dawn on me. I already do this for sections and elevations. Thanks guys.

          Aaron, what's this template thing you speak of?? :hide: :laugh:


          Oooh, that filter works nice. :thumbsup:

            Ours filters for data in the grids, so you dont have to make new grid types....

                  Just testing myself here but those would be Shared/Project Parameters yes?

                    For us, yes. With grids, its less of an issue, since they arent Families that get built in the Component Editor environment. However, we want the same GUID in different projects, in case we want to filter in 3rd party apps downstream, so we use a Shared parameter.
