Filter BIM Profile

I have asked this in another post, however I am still unable to find out whether it is possible to filter and obtain a selection set based on the structural 'BIM PROFILE SIZE'.

I have also checked via lisp (entget (car (entsel))) to see if it part of the entity list but doesnt seem to be there.



  • I too would like to be able to do this. If I use BLADE's data inspector, I can get a list of all an entities dxf codes but I can't see the BIM data in there. Where is it stored?

  • Use the structural browser and in search field add $profile = xxxxx. This is a powerful tool BUT NEEDS ability to use wildcards for string filtering and logical operators

    Say $Profile = HSS* would filter all beams with HSS sections.

    I would love to know how to create groups and sets and hive them a name so we can also assign selection sets to them and use later

    Cool. I created a new Rule, then I right click Group and select Profile from Extensions - BIM. I can now see (and select) all the profile sizes in the structural panel.

  • That’s very cool - must try rules and groups out letter, thanks for sharing
  • Garry & tslewis,

    thank you for sharing that information. That is very powerful and also very helpful (yet another impressive Bricscad feature).
    Much appreciated.

  • Welcome yep if they can add filtering wildcards and logical even more so

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
