My recent post "What is Clash Detection" triggered some customer feedback, one of which I consider worthy covering in this article.
Here is the question submitted by the reader: "Is there any way to get the various reports to list a Revit's model's Element ID of a clashing object?"
Very happy to share that we can answer the question with "Yes it is possible".
Users need to set up "Smart tags" to show the element ID. "Smart tags display property information in a tooltip style window as you move your cursor over objects in the Scene Area. By default, smart tags show the name and type of the object, but you can use the Options Editor to define which properties are shown. Each definition that you configure enables you to display an additional category/property combination in smart tags. You can choose whether to hide category names in smart tags or not."
Then export the report as normal and the Element ID should appear in the report.
Please share any feedback, comments or suggestions you may have.
