Create a 2D view of your 3D model! All items in the 2D are also selectable and can be filtered in the property view. You can also clip into the 2D with the sliding bar
See your 360 panorama images directly together with the 3D
See a full length video with an overview of all the functions
Bookmarks allows the user to jump to predefined areas in the model. These predefined areas may also contain measurement, clippings, groups and more.
It will also change the properties view, by showing the items that are selected in the current bookmark.
For every issue, all comments and resolutions are automatically retrieved from BIMCollab. You can also create/resolve/close issues and comments back to the BIMCollab platform. This creates a powerful visualization tool, where you can combine all your issues and comments together with the contextualizes 3D data. The two-way sync makes it possible to perform a thorough evaluation of decisions when needed.
Streamline the BIM communication, collaboration, and coordination processes with BIM Track in Novorender. Collect all comments and issues from BIM Track, and view them directly in Novorender for the whole team to get access. For every issue, all comments and resolutions are automatically retrieved from BIM Track. You can also create/resolve/close issues and comments back to the BIM Track platform. This creates a powerful visualization tool, where you can combine all your issues and comments together with the contextualizes 3D data. The two-way sync makes it possible to perform a thorough evaluation of decisions when needed. Get an overview at any time, from anywhere, even from your phone. Stop exchanging files with outdated lists and work seamlessly together from a single source of truth.
Use clipping to see section planes
Create different section views of your 3D model! Select any surface, and clip into the model with the “Position” sliding bar
Get a complete overview of every lifecycle of the project, directly inside the 3D model. Get an overview of all images, comments, issues and more.
Compare your as-built against the underlying 3D models. In the video example we display the geometric control with over- and underbreak, to validate the drilling and explosives work for tunnel work. Large point clouds are used to be compared against IFC/landXML files to validate the ongoing work.
Choose your landXML file in the widget “Follow Path” to get started
Create groups to allow the users in Viewer mode to automatically select predefined areas, based on searches, in the model.
Measure allows for detailed measuring show distances, differences, elevations and more.
When the data is parametric, it is also possible to get additional information such as slope, width, height, area and more.
Use Center lines to measure the closest distance to any point in the model.
Remember to pin the center line in the measurement tool before selecting another point.
When the data is parametric, it is possible to get additional information such as slope, width, height, area and more.
The buttons are in the bottom center
The speed button has three modes “normal,” “fast,” and “slow.” Each mode alters the movement/ camera speed.
Step back button steps the user back to the previous camera view.
Step forward button steps the user forward to the previous camera view.
The home button takes the user back to the initial camera view.
The fullscreen button makes the 3D fullscreen
Use the buttons on your keyboard to navigate in the 3D.
W = Move forward
S = Move backwards
A = Move Left
D = Move Right
E = Fly up
Q = Fly down
Shift = Speed up
Arrow down = Look Up
Arrow up = Look Down
Left arrow = Look left
Right Arrow = Look right
Hold down the left mouse button and drag the mouse.
Moving the camera
The easiest way to move is to scroll, and you fly to the mouse courser
Some users prefer WASD+QE to fly.
Rotate around object
Hold right-click mouse button to rotate around an object (360 view). Remember that the area where you point the cursor will be the center of the rotation.
Up, down, right and left
Hold scroll mouse button to move up, down, right and left
To select an object left click.
Phones and tablets
Hold one finger on the screen and drag the finger.
Moving the camera
Pinch in or out to move in the direction you wish to fly. The camera will fly towards where you are pinching on the screen.
Rotate around object
Hold three fingers on the screen to rotate around an object (360 view)
Tap an object to select it.
Select model tree to see the hierarchy of the 3D model from the input data. Users can either dig down or select an object and see where the item lays in the hierarchy.
Combine Orthophoto with 3D, lines and more
Find your position in the 3D according to your position in the real world
The property button displays all metadata/attributes of every element.
It can be used to view all of same type. See in the GIF below how all windows are selected.
Use the property tree to list all the properties in the 3D.
Use the search function to search for elements. You can search for any string, and it will return all objects that have part of this string as either name or in its metadata. For example: if you search for “column”, it will return all items with the column attribute.
By selecting “Advanced” it allows you to search for a specific property value.
If you select the = button it will return exact matches.
Use the Advanced search function to search for multiple elements.
You can do “AND”, “NOT” “OR” and many more searches.
When using the selection basket you can choose which items you want to display without selection color. When pressing “Add”, the item will be selected and displayed with the original color
The buttons are at the bottom left
Clears/unselects the current selected object(s).
Hides/disables the current selected objects(s).
When “Hide” is clicked, the button turns to “unhide.” Enabling you to unhide/enable the hidden objects.
When the button displays as “single”, Single selection mode is enabled, enabling you to select one object.
When “multi” is enabled, the user can select multiple items.
The “all object” button indicates if all objects should be shown or only selected items.
Chose the default color for selected items
- Enter “Graphic Settings” on your computer
- Enable “Hardware Accelerated GPU Scheduling”
- Under the “Choose an app to set preference” (in the second red circle), select the browsers and applications that you are using with Novorender, and set them to “High Performance”
