I have a question on “Design Options Tool as a Hotlink Module Generator​” workflow.

William Yan

Hello everyone, after watching the “Design Options Tool as a Hotlink Module Generator​” video of BuildingTogether Learn event. I am very interested in the workflow demonstrated by Stefan. I tried it out and encountered a problem, and I hope to confirm it.


1. Do all the elements in the project need to belong to one Design Option? In the video, I saw a Design Option called "Main Model". Does this mean that all the element components, except for those that are repeated on floors, should be placed in the "Main Model" Design Option?

2. When exporting a mod file in plan view, besides using layer combs and Design Option settings to control the visibility of elements, are there any other methods?


Thank you!
