Views Strip

Views

The Views Strip is used to save Views of the models from different camera angles and with different colors, object visibility, and markups. These Views are saved and can be reused and shared with other members of the project.

Using the Views Strip

  • When a View is created, it appears as the last one on the right side of the Views Strip.

  • If the Views Strip is full, it will scroll so that the newly created view is displayed.

  • When creating a view, the view name field is selected and it can be renamed directly after creation.

  • The default view name is New View.

  • The Views Strip can be reorganized if needed by drag and dropping Views. The view will move to where it is dropped.

Search Views

Use the Search function to search for a view. Searching Views will show results for Views that are grouped. Searching inside a group will only shows matching Views within that group.

Search parameters: View title

To search

  1. Open a model in Trimble Connect for Windows 3D Viewer.

  2. Open the Views strip.

  3. Click the Search field.

  4. Type the search word in the search field.


The views will be filtered.

Filter Views

The Views panel can be filters by:

  • Own views
    Default state of the Views Strip. This shows all Views you have created and that have been shared with you.

  • Shared with me
    This filters the Views to show only Views shared with you.

To know who has shared a view, hovering over a shared view will display the tooltip Created by <user name› (this is only shown when the list is filtered for Shared with me).

While in this filtered view, the only control the user can do is Load with Original Model Versions.
