COBie federation has been reintroduced in this release with improvements that should save you time and give you more control over the items included in the federated data set.
The redesigned Federate COBie screen lists items from the selected model in a tree view that can be expanded or contracted to show or hide the parent-child relationships. Items in the list are automatically filtered by assigned role (if set), but you can use various other options to filter the list according to your needs and make additional selections. Enter a specific filter value, or use one of the available filter types to display items based on IFC/COBie classification. You can additionally include unclassified items in the list.
For a complete description of COBie federation, go to the Federate COBie topic in the Viewpoint For Projects User’s Guide.
