Documentation of layout & equipment
Images are particularly helpful when the scene is captured from different angles and in varying degrees of detail, depending on the work step. With the camera perspective "free camera", for example, you can first give an overview of the shop floor before showing the process in detail in the work area.
For the conversion of work areas and equipment, you can share the dimensions with other departments or colleagues in various ways. Our export functions allow you to output 3D data and 2D sketches. You can read the dimensions directly from the PDF export.
Another way to make it even easier is to place the dimensions directly in VR and create screenshots of them. This way you can clearly display all relevant dimensions. Place the dimensions with the ruler tool and create screenshots from different perspectives. The camera view "top view" is particularly suitable for dimensioning distances.
In the "Adjust Outline" function, you can save the dimensions of your work area as a screenshot.
