Can words be excluded when searching the 3D Warehouse?
It appears you can use the word
NOT to exclude terms. Capitalization of the word “NOT” is required.
Ex1 - Searching for a clock that is not a wall clock:
clock NOT wall
Ex 2 - Searching for a clock that is not a wall clock and not a small clock:
clock NOT wall NOT small
Quotation marks can be used to search and exclude exact phrases:
clock NOT "travel alarm"
Just a minor afer-thought here. To me it is intuitive to use the
- symbol to exclude search terms. So using the previous example:
clock NOT wall NOT small NOT "travel alarm"
should also be allowed to be written as:
clock -wall -small -"travel alarm"
Thanks for considering.
Jim, thanks, as always for the feedback!
Agreed. I searched for
"trailer chassis" and I see some but also a bunch of trucks.
So I naturally try to use modifiers that the major search engines allow like “+” and “-”, ie:
"trailer chassis -truck" but only get MORE trucks!
This has been rolled out to a percentage of users, with NOT. You can also use AND or OR for trailer, chassis. For example the most limited search result would be via
trailer AND chassis NOT truck
