In addition to this list of features, there are some general improvements:

  • The app is now iOS 14 and Android 11 compatible.
  • Faster start up and better response time on clickable elements.
  • Faster loading of issue details page

Add clipping plane

Select an object, then use the clipping plane tool to create a section. Use the clipping plane widget in the bottom right of the viewer to toggle the plane between active (you can slide the plane back and forth) and inactive (rotate and zoom in model as normal). You can also reverse the clipping plane.

Inspect properties of 3D objects

When you select several objects in 3D you now get a list of the selected objects by clicking on the blue button in the bottom right hand corner. In the list you can select an object and view it's IFC properties. You can also clear the selection when in the object list.

Improved 2D markers

It's now easy to identify a selected issue or a new issue in the 2D view from the issue icon. A new issue has a dashed halo, a selected issue has a full halo.

Norwegian language available

Where available, the app follows the language you're using on your phone (currently English, Norwegian and French). For telephones set up other languages, the app defaults to English. On iOS you can choose language for a specific app under General settings for that app. This means that you can run an app using a different language from the phone's language.
