Today’s tool helps us quickly find the model we are looking for within InfraWorks.
When working in InfraWorks, the home screen lists and displays a thumbnail image for all of our models. If you are like me, the images are a lot faster to interpret than reading all of the model names. :)
Having said this, InfraWorks creates the thumbnail images automatically and usually at a very early stage of model construction. As a result, the image may not always reflect the current state of the model and/or a location that would make it easy to quickly identify.
That is the purpose of today’s tool!
Using the Thumbnail tool we can quickly capture the view state of our model and use that as the model’s thumbnail image.
Check out the video below to see how it works.
