New Feature - Model Explorer

Recommended Posts

A new feature in VentSim 5.2 is a new docking panel called "Model Explorer"

This is designed to quickly allow you to navigate to different items in the ventilation network.

To access this view go to Tools | Model Explorer Menu



This will open up the new docking panel, by default this is docked to the left of the screen.

The model explorer will list all fans, fixed flows, regulators etc.. that are currently being used in the model.
To quickly navigate to a fan for instance, you can double click on the fan and the 3D view will center on the fan.

 In the below image the AFN fan has been selected (double-clicked) and the 3D graphics has focused on the fan


To modify the display options right-click and the below context menu will be displayed


By default the list is sorted by elevation and grouped using primary and secondary layers

Model Explorer is a quick way to navigate around unfamiliar models, please let us know if you find this new feature useful.
