Trimble Connect for Mobile 2.14

Jan 20, 2021
Trimble Connect for Mobile
Android | iOS | v2.14

Connect for Mobile v2.14  is now available. Our focus was to bring the new 3D viewer on par with the legacy 3D Viewer.

We have retired the legacy 3D Viewer with this release. Hence we request all users to move over to the latest version. After about a month from now (about 20-Feb-2021) , the models will not get processed or load in the legacy 3D viewer. NEW

New Features/Improvements

1. Layers

You can now see layers (option from left panel) for models in the new 3D viewer.  This will help you hide/unhide Layers and carry out further operations.

2. Automatic sums for favorite properties

You can mark preferred object properties as favorites in the new 3D Viewer. Upon multi-select, the favorite properties will add up (depending on the type of property. 

3. Categories Option

Categories from Tekla can now be seen and filtered in Connect’s new 3D Viewer. 

4. Views with latest File Version

1. Views will be opened with the latest file version 
2. However, if an older file version(for a View) is detected, you will be able to download the latest version.

5. Grids

Enabling/Disabling Grids is added in the new 3D viewer

Bug fixes

  1. On Enabling “Select assemblies” the objects will be displayed  instead of Assemblies when selecting an assembly.
  2. Linking a 3D Object to new Todo was not attaching embedded view. This is fixed now.

  • View parity issues exist across Connect clients. These are observed for markups, color, transparency, selection states, orthographic projection and global transparency.
  • Models with more than 2500 object links tend to make the model render slower. 
  • Views created using multiple models with show/hide model have issues.. There may be inconsistency when seen in other clients. User has to tap “Show all” to view all the models on screen.
