Labraries are becoming overwhelming

Recommended Posts

I love all the content and items to use while designing projects BUT I the amount of content we have look through is taking up too much time and yes I use search engine. Anyone have a different approach or method handling of library inventory?

They're not unknown methods or anything, but have you tried:

  • Setting up some Custom Filters?
  • My new favorite method...right clicking on the desired Folder(s) and clicking Search Folder(s)?
  • Using warehouse plan(s) for commonly used items where they call all be viewed as though you were walking down a grocery store aisle? This one can be used for materials and symbols alike.

See this post for a quick material warehouse plan starter kit.  There are different ways to set up a material warehouse but this is one...

Also, adding search attributes

HA! I'm not the only nut with "warehouse plans". I made myself a Boulder Lot plan that shows my boulder and rock models displaying various available texture options...

I am probably in a slightly different boat as virtually all of the brand specific library items are no use to me. So I mainly use my user library, then if I gave to go find something specific I also place a copy in my user library for future use. For details I have 1 or 2 details per plan in carefully set up folders where I make use of the thumbnail feature.
