It is our pleasure to announce the release of the much awaited Trimble Connect for HoloLens v 3.0 software!


This is our very first release supporting Microsoft HoloLens 2 and our very own Trimble XR10 with HoloLens 2 hardware that will be coming out later this year.  Since June of this year, our product and engineering teams have been heads down focused on revamping Trimble Connect for HoloLens to take advantage of the new functionality enabled by these revolutionary devices


The Trimble XR10 with HoloLens 2, for those unfamiliar, is the only fully-embedded mixed-reality device custom-built and certified for use in safety controlled environments in the world. The device leverages all of the benefits of the Microsoft HoloLens 2 - a larger field of view, updated cameras and processors, flip-up visor, iris detection and eye calibration, and 10-finger hand tracking - to provide you with the most advanced mixed reality tools right on your job site.


What’s new in this version


Trimble Connect for HoloLens v3.0 will host a wide array of new features and functionality:

  •  We’ve revamped the user experience design to take advantage of XR10’s improved capabilities, including near-touch interaction and eye-tracking.
  • New! Intuitive 3D User Interface 
  • New! Large Model Support: Section Box Tool, Automatic Model Optimization, and Fishbowl Mode to support any model at 60 FPS!
  • We have also added support for Sequencing workflows, which will allow users to load pre-made (in Trimble Connect Desktop) sequencing groups in TCH. The new Sequencing module will enable workers in prefab and pre-construction to step through assembly tasks in the factory or directly on-site, completely hands-free. 
  • Model Transparency: Adjust the opacity of your model for better onsite visualization, regardless of the ambient environment
