The Inspect Element tool now helps users better explore their model and BIM data, and easily document actionable items. The Inspect Element tool provides much of the information necessary to quickly get back into your model for revisions. When inspecting an element, it will temporarily turn green until it is flagged, deselected, or another element is inspected.
With the Inspect Element tool selected, users are able to point at any individual element in their model and pull the trigger to inspect that element. Some basic information about that selected component, such as element and family name, will be displayed on the menu (we'll be adding more to this with later releases).
If something is incorrect or needs revision, it is easy to flag that element and turn it red.
Our recommendation is to switch to the camera tool after you've finished flagging elements and marking up the model. You can quickly grab some images and use our template to organize thoughts and revisions.
Additionally, when you've finished reviewing your Revit file in VR, you'll be able to export a report of all flagged elements as a CSV file. This helps users to quickly and easily go back into Revit to make any necessary changes, based on Element ID. Full details on this workflow available here.
One of the pieces of information made available to you when inspecting an element is the layer that element is on. You can easily turn off that element/layer from the inspect element menu.
