Version 1.5.8 is out!
Posted on August 26th, 2020 in News by Mikael
-Updated IFC importer
-New dimensioning tool with center (c/c) snapping for pipes and rebars
(It is still possible to load .grx-files saved from a previous version of BIMXplorer. However, in order for the new snapping functionality to work corrctly, do a clean import of IFC-files!)
Note #1: VR-mode is currently only supported on NVIDIA graphics cards!
Note #2: "Motion Smoothing" in OpenVR (HTC Vive) may lead to "shimmering" effects. Depending on scene, it may be better to turn this feature OFF!
Note #3: Running BIMXplorer directly from Revit 2020 may lead to periodic frame rate drops (due to Revit background processes). Saving the file (.grx) and open in standalone version of BIMXplorer will solve such issues.
-Fixed missing fonts/icons for the VR GUI when BIMXplorer is started from Revit
-Simplified open/add/import interface. Regardless of file-type (IFC, grx, 3ds, etc.) you now have the option of:
Open - Select one or multiples files to view
Add - Select one or multiples files that will be ADDED to the current scene
-Coordinate systems should now align correctly regardless of file-type.
-Faster loading/saving of .grx-files (BIMXplorer's proprietary file format)
-Reduced file size on disk (.grx-files)
-Added a missing texture for the ruler
-New Tools Palette
-Move section planes interactively
-Turn filters ON/OFF in VR
-Turn shadows ON/OFF in VR
-Revit 2020 support
-Support for Oculus Rift S
