Search in 3D

UniversalPlantViewer’s search function is especially adapted for working with 3D and 2D drawings. Therefore there are two sets of results:

Hard results that exactly match the entered criteria. Displayed in light grey.
Soft results. Characters after the search string or those that are commonly added or dropped when converting data to another format are not considered during the search. (“slab 1 0002” or “slab-1-0002”). Displayed in dark grey.

Make sure there is enough room for the display of your search results by dragging the bar under the search box downward. Otherwise maybe only Please select from search results will be visible.

Wildcards

You can add wildcards to the start or end of your search term:

  • ? stands for any single character or number

  • * stands for any number of characters or numbers (a* matches a, abc, a-12, …)

  • With >, <, =, => and =< you can search for attributes that start with a number. All numbers after text strings will be ignored.

Search Tools

Use the search tools under your search results for easier identification and selection of objects.

Highlight all objects of the selected category: Objects not belonging to the selection are greyed out and opaque, selected objects remain fully coloured.
Show only objects of the selected category: Objects not belonging to the selection are hidden, selected objects remain visible.

Disable / Enable automatic zoom on selection

Dis- or enables the automatic camera-movement when changing selected objects.
Go to previous/next group: Selects the previous/next group of objects in the selected category and focuses the 3D view on those objects.
Go to previous/next part: Selects the previous/next part in the selected category and focuses the 3D view on those objects.

Search in P&ID and Isometrics

You can also search a P&ID drawing / Isometric for characters and strings but without using wildcards.
