Adjust the 3D Model View

Reference

When you are working in Trimble Connect for Windows, you can adjust how 3D models are shown. You can either fit models or objects to the 3D View, change the perspective of the 3D View, or reset all selections, markups, clip planes and measurements in the 3D View.

Fit Models or Objects to the 3D View

To fit a selection to the 3D view

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

  2. Select the model or objects you want to fit to view.

  3. On the toolbar, select Fit to View.

Switch to Fullscreen Mode

To enter full screen mode

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

  2. If the Navigation Toolbar is hidden, click the middle of the Navigation Wheel.
    The Navigation Toolbar will appear above the Navigation Wheel.

  3. On the toolbar, select Fullscreen Mode.

  4. To exit full screen mode, click Fullscreen Mode again.

Change the Camera View

To change the camera view

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

  2. On the toolbar, open the Model Views menu.

  3. Select one of the model views:

      1. Default (Axon) view

      2. Top view

      3. Front view

Change the Model Perspective

To change the model perspective

  2. On the visibility toolbar, click the Perspective/Orthogonal toggle.

      • In perspective view, distant objects appear smaller than close ones.

      • In orthogonal, the object's size is retained independently of the distance to the view point. You cannot navigate through objects in the orthogonal mode.

Reset the 3D View

Reseting the model will reset all selections, object colors, visibility, markups, clip planes and measurements.

To reset the model(s)

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

  2. When you are ready to reset the view, on the toolbar, click Reset Model.

  3. The model will be reset to its original state.
