What's New Version 20.6

Highlights June 2020

Minimal impact comes together with optimal usability having 5 quick-access settings available in the 3DM viewer. It allows the user to find easily the most commonly preferred/used settings without having to open the full settings panel. And parallel the administrator has the opportunity to select 5 settings per publication without having to allow the user to access the full settings panel.

Improved filter options in the Console, combined with expanded logging and improved usabilities when creating new entities like resources and publications make the work of the administrator much easier and efficient.

Go check out the new landing page of Orbit 3DM Cloud. All documentation nicely combined, in line with all Orbit products, and easy to use.

3DM Viewer

New Features

  • Configure up to 5 quick-access settings
    Choose the most commonly used or preferred settings to have easy access from the left-hand sidebar menu. This option allows you to optimize your workflow with a minimum impact. Per publication 5 settings can be selected. Only toggle options are available to select as quick-access settings. This new feature replaces the checkboxes from version 20.5 to overlay point cloud on the images and to display the basemap in 3D.
  • Set the photo search distance
    Reducing the maximum distance avoids opening far away images. The before hard coded distance becomes available as a slider in the Viewing Settings panel. This setting allows easy navigation in for example urban environment and indoor data.

    The chosen timeframe per view when the option Timeline is enabled, is now stored in the publication, bookmark, project and personal Viewer (3DM Cloud).
