Exclude Far Away Objects

This tool scans the model for objects that are located far away from the main model and automatically excludes these objects.

This is useful when the model has objects that are so far away, that when the 3D window is zoomed to the whole model, nothing will show in the 3D window because all objects are smaller than one pixel. Excluding such objects puts them in the Excluded 3D bucket and because each bucket is zoomed separately the main model becomes visible. The far away objects also become visible and you can see what they are.

If the far-away objects are needed in the IFC export you must include them back before exporting.
