To access SiteView Settings menu, click the icon at the left of the top Toolbar:
Here you can see information on the 3D tour and access options for viewing, such as:
- Project Name
- Address of the Project
- Short list of Levels
- Show Capture Table
- Unit of Measure
- Limit Widget Control
- Walkthrough Search Range
- 3D Object Transparency
- Point Limit per Frame
- Point Size
- Point Color Mode
- Point Cloud Silhouette
The options for 3D Object Transparency to Point Cloud Silhouette only appear if BIM Model Files and Point Clouds have been imported into CupixWorks.
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.
This shows the address for the Project location.
This shows a few of the Levels from the Project shown in the 3D tour.
Show Capture Table
This table shows captures for different Levels and different days.
Unit of Measure
If a tour has Measurement enabled, you can choose from six different units of measure here.
Limit Widget Control
You can limit the ability to add new widgets as well as remove the close button from all viewers by turning this on.
Walkthrough Search Range
When using Walkthrough Mode, the field may become cluttered with pano bubbles and 3D BIM objects. You can use the slider to limit the amount of information shown using the Unit of Measure you previously chose.
3D Object Transparency
If a BIM or 3D model is set up and displayable in a SiteView, you can transport individual 3D objects from these models onto the 3D tour. This allows you to place 3D objects in the 3D tour, making it easy to determine if objects at the actual jobsite (tour) correspond to their planned locations in the architectural designs (BIM/ 3D model).
If you have overlaid 3D objects onto 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.
Point Limit per Frame
This option allows you to set the maximum number of points to be loaded per frame. There is a cost in browsing speed as you increase the point density.
Choose between Fixed and Adaptive (the default) point sizing. Fixed renders all point at the same selected size, while Adaptive will render points based on density per region.
Point Color Mode
With Point Color Mode, you can select from four different color modes:
- RGB uses the colors (Red, Blue, Green) specified in the source file.
- CMY uses the colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow) specified in the source file.
- Elevation uses a gradation (Min Elevation to Max Elevation) of color between two colors chosen in the source file.
- Intensity uses a gradation (Min Intensity to Max Intensity) of color between two colors chosen in the source file.
Point Cloud Silhouette
Turn the Point Cloud Silhouette on and off.
Once you are done making changes, click on the Settings icon to close the menu.
