Invisibility Advisor - A New CTC BIM Project Suite Tool

I got a brief demo today of the now available new Invisibility Advisor by CTC Express Tools.

I just give installed the update and give it a quick spin, here are my results...

I opened the furniture plan and the main floor plan views. Let's see if it can do a simple one; select the chair in the view I can see it, and then select the view it is hidden in...


Good job... as seen in the next image, the Revit Category is turned off. Now I have...
Fix and Show options to facilitate changes.


I click Fix and get this helpful message:


Now the chair shows up... and, of course, all the furniture.


This action can be undone.


Next test - open the HVAC plan and see why it thinks the air terminal is not showing in the main floor plan.


It is a View Range issue... yep, correct.


Click Fix and the air terminals now show up, along with other stuff. But the tool did what I asked it to do!


How about phasing? Select a demo'ed wall in an older phase, and then point the tool at a newer phase where the element is now visible.


Phase Filter settings are hiding this element. Correct again.


Pretty nice. More testing to follow!
