Appearance Profiler & AutoCAD?

177 Views, 2 Replies

I'm researching the appearance profiler, and I am liking what I see. However, right now I do a lot of coordination using AutoCAD, not Revit. Is there a way to create selectors using the properties (rather than sets) with AutoCAD objects? This would go for all trades.

 

Thanks,
Shawn

Please refer to the image attached for an explanation on how to set your appearance profiler to search for CAD elements.

 

Also, this link has great information:

I will have to give this a try when I get in the office in the morning.
