Opening Views in 3D

Open/Load a View

Double clicking a View will load the View in 3D. If the models in the view are not loaded when clicking a View, they will be loaded accordingly. Any extra models that aren’t needed are just hidden, so that switching between remains smooth and doesn’t always require the model to be loaded/unloaded.

The latest version of the model is loaded by default.

Load a View with Original Models

Since there can be several versions of a model in the same project, there is also an option to load the view using the original model, meaning the model version used at view creation. Otherwise, the view will be loaded using the currently used version of the model.

To load a View with the original model versions

  1. Open your project in Trimble Connect for Windows.

  2. Navigate to the 3D viewer.

  3. Open the Views Strip (if it is not already open).

  4. Right click on the desired View.
    The context menu will open.

  5. Select Load with original model versions.

The saved View is reverted to use the original model versions that were used to create the View.
