Blog Post created by Jari Juntunen on Nov 3, 2020

Today we launched a new version of the Trimble Connect for Browser 3D Viewer, available at  https://3d.connect.trimble.com. This update introduces the new perpendicular measurement tool toolbars. Highlights of the functionality are:


  • Use the perpendicular measurement tool to quickly take shortest perpendicular distances between points, edge lines and object faces: 




  • When starting the perpendicular measurement tool, the new toolbar allows choosing the snapping preference (snap to points, lines, or faces):



  • After the measurement has been created, the new toolbar allows choosing the alternate X / Y / Z dimension, switching direction, hiding units or changing the color of the measurement 


(Note that making the above choices is only possible before the measurement/dimension is saved into a view)
