Understanding Rule-Based Organizer and Formula Rule-Based Organizer Features

The Rule-Based Organizer feature stands as a user-friendly and adaptable tool designed to arrange model objects efficiently to cater to diverse requirements. It addresses a crucial challenge: dealing with BIM models containing a multitude of objects, each defined by numerous properties. The primary conundrums it tackles are swift identification of pertinent objects and seamless sharing of discovered objects with fellow project collaborators. The Organizer finds application in various scenarios, not confined to:

The Formula Rule-Based Organizer feature represents an enhancement to the existing functionality of the Rule-Based Organizer feature within Trimble Connect for Browser. This tool empowers you to craft intelligent rules for the purpose of efficiently arranging your model objects. Furthermore, we've introduced a feature that allows you to incorporate object visibility within these rules, providing an added layer of versatility.

Formula Rule-Based Organizer is “accent mark agnostic” and employs advanced algorithms that are trained on a wide range of accent mark data. These algorithms are designed to recognize phonetic and linguistic variations across various accents, allowing the software to accurately interpret spoken language in the context of naming conventions in models. The Formula Rule-Based Organizer feature is not case specific and will create groups based on "fuzzy" word matches.
