Tagging BIM objects

A little while ago I blogged about the new functionality available at NBS National BIM Library that allowed users to star their favourite objects.

This week, the personalisation features on the library have had another big enhancement.

The screen captures below shows how users can now group their favourite objects by a tag to allow easier re-use when searching or browsing...
Fig 1 - The user find an object they want to use and adds a tag (for example 'Retail')
Fig 2 - Later the user may search for content such as 'cubicle' and then refine the results by the tags
Fig 3 - Selecting the tag filter takes the search results from 33 to 1 
Fig 4 - If you have already added a tag, then these are available from a drop down list
Fig 5 - All of the objects that are tagged appear from the personalised home page
Fig 6 - By selecting a tag, all relevant objects may be seen
Fig 7 - The tagging feature also works for the users taking advantage of the NBS Plug-in for Autodesk Revit
Fig 8 - The above screen grab is a genuine example from our own refurbishment project for our NBS building
