You can query linked elements by category, but they don’t relate to the host view visibility. The recommendation that i’ve seen so far is to intersect/bounding box filter, although i haven’t had time to read through all the links here yet…
If I use a phase filter it returns all of the elements but then I would need to filter by category. Is there any easy way to select multiple categories (or even reference from a view template)?
Using a bounding box filter is only working on one of the linked files. I suspect it is because the bounding box doesn’t intersect Building B because of a different coordinate system. Not sure how this can be fixed.
Yes, the process seems to work for me. I do not see the things that are hidden in the view. In the example below I can switch between views in the linked model and the hidden objects will toggle on and off depending on the view that I use:
@scottd I’ve managed to replicate this and I just wanted to confirm something.
Your method is getting all of the geometry from a linked model based on the LINKED MODEL’S view, correct? So for this to work, each model would need to have the view setup and filters applied within that model.
What I was after was using the active’s model view settings (inc filters and hidden elements) to return the linked geometry. Does this make sense? It sounds like it might not be possible.
