Hello Everyone:

I am excited to bring Trimble Connect for HoloLens v 3.2 release to our customers. This is a significant release that closes critical market gaps and addresses specific field/site connectivity concerns raised by our customers.

TCH v 3.2 is now available in the Microsoft Store and can be downloaded on your Trimble XR10 and HoloLens 2 devices.

Over the course of this year my team has reshaped the TCH application to take advantage of the new functionality enabled by Trimble XR10 with HoloLens 2 and by Microsoft HoloLens 2 hardware releases.

What's new in this release

  • Offline Mode (Phase 1) (Training Video)
    • Turn on the remember me feature during sign in to the app; download data locally onto the HoloLens in order to access and continue working during Wi-Fi disruptions on the site
    • Full Offline Mode: Will be available across several releases. In order to enable all features to work properly within the app in offline mode we will be building this feature in phases.
  • Aligning a model to site using markers
  • Fly Mode - Navigation through sparse models (Training Video)
    • Most MEP models don't have floors and/or walls. Teleporting through these models have been extremely frustrating for our users. We have enable both jumping between entities in the model with a single tap in teleportation mode and doing a fly through with a pinch and hold gesture to get around the model easily.
  • World Locking Tools
    • We have integrated world locking tools (WLT) in the model viewer to improve model stability.
      Public Demo Data
  • New improvements and additions to public demo mode models to make it relevant to our customer base.
  • Large Model Improvement - User setting to adjust performance : detail ratio
