Viewer Settings

This page documents the 3DM Viewer Settings.
Orbit 3DM Viewer > Sidebar > Settings icon

General

Viewer

Show Focus Position

The focus position is displayed in all view with a green cross.

Show Hover Position

The hover position is displayed in all views with a red cross.

Reference Ground height

Allows picking the ground height value by clicking in one of the 3D views.
The value is used for displaying 2D resources and is calculated as follows:

  • On any image view: Z coordinate of the photo position viewpoint minus the height offset of the camera above ground, see Orbit run configuration.
  • 3D point cloud view: Z coordinate of the 3D viewpoint downwards intersection with the point cloud. This technique will only be used if no image view has been opened.

Set the position of the Sidebar, the Viewer Menu is placed at the opposite side of the Viewer.

View Menu Position

Set the position of the view action menu to the center top, left top or left middle.
