# Group Clashes by Properties
The following steps will show you how to group clashes using properties in Navisworks.
# STEP 1:
In the Selection Tree and Properties dialogue review which Read Level contains the information you need for grouping your clashes.
# STEP 2:
Go to Standard tools in iConstruct panel and run the Clash Manager tool.
# STEP 3:
Click the Options icon in the dialogue.
# STEP 4:
Go to Data tab and set CR 1 Property Read Level and CR 2 Property Read Level. Click OK.

# STEP 5:
Click on the Column Chooser tool in the Clash Manager ribbon.
# STEP 6:
Drag and drop selected property from Column Chooser to the tree structure in Clash Manager dialogue.
# NOTE: In the Column Chooser you will find all the properties in the Navisworks model.CR1 are the properties from Selection A model (Structural in our case) and CR2 are from Selection B model in Clash Detective (HVAC in our case).

# Note: Saved layouts can later be reused with other clash tests and models as well as used in BIMflow. You can switch between different pre-saved layouts from the drop-down menu. To switch between Layouts, at least two are required.
