Watch VR-interface

-3D snapping (vertex, edge, and plane) during distance measurements

-Section plane outlines

-SketchUp importer

-Better hide/unhide in VR (support for undo)

-Improved performance/smoothness with HTC Vive

-Automatically detect NVIDIA graphics cards on Optimus (laptop) systems

 

Note #1:

"Motion Smoothing" in OpenVR (HTC Vive) may lead to "shimmering" effects. Depending on scene, it may be better to turn this feature OFF!

 

Note #2:

VR-mode is currently only supported on NVIDIA graphics cards!

 

Fixes:

Some reinforcement bars from IFC-files we're not correctly imported. This is now fixed!

 

 

 

Version 1.4.6:

-New Filtering Manager: Control visibility/color on objects based on type/properties/rules

-Save 3D-labels (separate file, no need to resave complete model)

-Faster loading of .grx files

-Faster loading of IFC-files with Property Sets

-Load multiple IFC-files at once

 

Fixes:

-Properties now show up correctly for all objects in VR

-Deleting/removing a link will now correctly update graphics

 

 

Version 1.4.5:

-New, faster rendering engine

-Sun shadows and HDR

-Revit 2018 Support

-Faster export from Revit

-More interactivity in VR:

Create 3D-labels with measurements and properties

Create section plane

Hide/unhide objects/links

Take snapshots

-Native support for Oculus Touch (no need for SteamVR)

-Updated IFC-import with full support for object colors (and reinforcement bars from Tekla) 

 

Note:

VR-mode is currently only supported on NVIDIA graphics cards!

 

 

Version 1.3.4:

-Initial support for floating licenses. Contact license@bimxplorer.com for more information.

-Added a ray for the teleport navigation in VR to make it more clear for the user where he/she is pointing at.

-Added a Graphics Settings Dialog to enable/disable SSAO and sky. Both are now on by default if the OpenGL version is at least 4.3. These settings are saved.

-Fixed a bug that made the Vive controllers not show up on some NVIDIA Quadro cards as well as improved rendering performance in VR on NVIDIA Quadro cards.

-Fixed a problem that made the trigger not work on Oculus Touch when both triggers on the Touch were pressed.

-Added possibility to hide/unhide selected objects by pressing h/u on the keyboard.

-Fixed a bug in the IFC-importer that made some models not align correctly.

 

Note:

On laptops with multiple graphics cards (integrated + NVIDIA) you should select "High-performance NVIDIA processor"  as Preferred graphics processor for best performance/quality (Right-click on desktop and select NVIDIA Control Panel and go to "Manage 3D Settings").

 

 

Version 1.3.3:

-Improved performance when starting BIMXplorer from Revit (especially for linked files)

-Removed a bug that would make BIMXplorer crash on some systems with low-end graphics cards

 

Known issues:

The progress bar will not always update correctly during IFC-file import
