Supported Resources that can be read in the 3DM Viewer are supported as local resources. Select the + icon below the Resource Sidebar title block and add resources one by one.

Add local resources via:

  • Select local resource files: select the root file and corresponding files. For example, select the ovf, ord, olg and osl files to add a vector file.
  • Select local resource folder: select the directory to add the first found resource.


The legend can be edited per Resource Component and is automatically saved in the Workspace.

The Resource Menu (three dots right from resource name) gives short-handed access to edit Resouce Component Legend, zoom to Resource extent, order Resource Listing, display Resource Metadata, and close Resource from the current Workspace.
