SiteView Settings

Access the SiteView Settings from the upper right hand of the top menu. 

Hover over the menu for the options to display - click the SiteView Settings icon.

The SiteView Settings displays information on the displayed tour including:

1) Basic information like

    - The Project under which the current tour is filed

    - The address of where the tour was taken

    - The level of the building that you are currently viewing

    - The date that the current tour was taken on

If you have a Cupix account, you can click on the Project name to view the Dashboard of that Project.  From the Dashboard, you can access Project Data like captures, project setup, reports, and other finished 3D tours.

The Clipping Radius

When viewing a 3D tour, visual indicators such as other 360 photos (bubble mode), pins for annotations, and 3D objects are displayed onscreen in the 3D tour viewer.  However, these objects may be located far away from your current position in the building, contributing to visual clutter. For instance, an annotation pin may be viewable from one of the buildings when the pin is located at the other end. 

To adjust the distance of the farthest visible object, use the Clipping Radius slider.  You can adjust the Clipping Radius value by clicking and dragging the slide or by using the left and right arrow keys on the keypad.  The Clipping Radius ranges from 0 to 100 ft and can be set in increments of 1 ft. Objects located beyond the Clipping Radius are invisible from the 360 photo you are currently viewing.  Adjust the Clipping Radius to reduce visual clutter from 360 photo bubbles, pins and 3D objects, and to help with navigation in the 3D tour.

NOTE: The Clipping Radius only works properly with tours that have been scaled correctly.  Tours that have not been scaled will show no objects at a clipping radius of 0 and all objects starting at a clipping radius of 1 ft.  Incorrectly scaled tours will begin showing objects at distances that do not make sense. For example, if an object at the end of a long corridor is viewable at 5 ft, or an object in a small room is only viewable once the radius is set to 50 ft, the tour is probably not scaled correctly.

If you suspect the tour you are viewing is not scaled correctly, contact the creator of the tour to have them apply the correct scale factor.

3D Object Transparency

If a BIM or 3D model is set up and displayable in this SiteView, you can transpose individual 3D objects from these models to the as built 3D tour.  This allows you to place 3D objects in the 3D tour of the space, making it easy to determine if objects at the actual jobsite (3D tour) correspond to their planned locations in the architectural designs (BIM/3D model).

If you have overlaid 3D objects on the 3D tour, you can adjust the transparency of these 3D objects by using the slider. 

A transparency of 1 (slide is fully to the right) means the 3D objects are completely opaque.

A transparency of 0 (slide is fully to the left) means the 3D objects are completely transparent, making them invisible on the 3D tour.

The transparency value is graded in increments of 0.1, meaning there are a total of 11 levels of opacity that you can set the 3D objects at.

You can adjust the 3D Object Transparency value by clicking and dragging the slide or by using the left and right arrow keys on the keypad.

If you have transposed multiple 3D objects, displaying them as translucent objects eases identification of the objects as well as navigation through the tour.

3D objects that are not affected by the 3D Object Transparency include pins for annotations such as markups and forms.
