Geometry Distance


This filter element defines a filter based on the distance of the plot item from a selected geometry object. To use, specify the desired geometry object(s) from the list provided in the “Geometry Set” attribute (this will be empty if no geometry sets exist in the model; see the geometry import command). The “Dist” attribute specifies the part(s) of the plot item to include, based on their distance from the geometry object. The distance to the nearest point on the geometry is used for this determination.


Not: Invert the filter element’s selection.

Extent: If checked, only include the item if its entire extent fits within this filter element’s definition. If not checked, the item’s centroid is used to determine the location of the item and whether it is within the filter element’s definition.

Distance: Specify the distance to use as a tolerance; objects within that tolerance are selected.

Geometry Set: Select the geometry set(s) to use from among those listed.
