Dimension annotations can be added to Interactive 3D and Virtual Photography experiences!
Threekit can measure models in realtime and display measurements in a variety of units or can refer to imported Catalog metadata for the measurement value. They an be displayed conditionally using Attributes like any other product option.
To add Dimensions to either your model or scene assets, use either the new
Box Dimensions or
Line Dimensions annotations:
Box Dimensions can be used to display the overal dimensions of one or more products in a stage. For example, you can measure one sofa, the size of a modular sofa as it's configured, or the overall floor space needed for a living room arrangement:
Target Nodes to select what you want to measure, either by node names or node tags. Note that node tags can be used to measure tagged nodes within an asset reference. For example, a scene can measure between tagged nodes within a model placed in a scene.
You can configure the unit type and rounding. You can also select which dimensions to measure:
Length. Within each dimension, you can select the annotaiton placement, use a custom label, and control the annotation offset.
Line Dimensions can be used to measure any two points. For example, you can measure the seat depth of a sofa, the arm width, or the clearance of one part to another:
Start Node and
End Node to select what you want to measure, either by node names or node tags. Note that node tags can be used to measure tagged nodes within an asset reference. For example, a scene can measure between tagged nodes within a model placed in a scene.
Dimension annotation styling includes color, font, line thickness, and font size:
Note that you can upload Fonts to Threekit as Assets and use those with annotations.
Dimension annotations will render as you see them in the player with no additional set up. Adding dimensions at scale to virtual photography is as easy as adding Dimensions to a
Scene, selecting the associated
Stage at render time along with the
Items you'd like to measure:
Render results can then be fetched using the Threekit API or downloaded from the Render results page:
Dimension Annotations now have more styling options to replicate technical drawings.
New Dimension Annotation styling options include:
- Start Endcape Shape
- End Endocarp Shape
- Endcap Size
- Line Style
- Label Vertical
- Label Horizontal
- Label Rotation
- Label Orientation
