"I don't know where my model is, why can't I just search everywhere?"

Often, we tend to think that the user knows what we know. In the old Physna app, the assumption was that the user will know where to look for the file/model.

Well, isn't it what search supposed to do? to flatten everything and elevate what you're looking for?

Physna Search page when I joined Physna

In the new Physna app, we put a few hint text and let users search by anything they desire, and Physna will surface anything that is relevant, by metadata, geometry, BBV (external size etc).
