Key Features of Saving Viewpoints

In Navisworks, while saving viewpoints you can save more than just saving the location of camera. For example sometimes you need to save the certain objects highlighted with different colors, save the view with some hidden objects. To customize viewpoints there are some options available in the Viewpoint Defaults page of the Options Editor dialog box. In the Viewpoint Defaults page when you select the Save Hide/Required Attributes option then you can hide the objects and these objects will be hidden while navigating between different views. This option will also save the sectioning. Similarly, in this Viewpoint Defaults page select the Override Material option to save the material override information. Using this option you can create two different scenarios by changing object colors.
