More Control over GraphicsUsers now have more control over the graphics, including - member coloring, transparency and toggling on specific elements. This allows users to visualize the structure exactly how they need or prefer:
Transparencies can now be controlled by elementsThe user also has a number of different representation styles they can control based on preference. For instance, member coloring, edgeline displays and graph floors to name a few:
The new renderer now includes more visualization options, including wireframe, solids and edgesFinally, sunlight and shadowing can now be controlled to bring your structure to life, with realistic shadowing for your screenshots and other sunlight analysis!
Enhanced PerformanceThe renderer has also undergone extensive improvements, under the hood! The renderer can now handle more members, more plates and more elements as a whole. The smoothness and responsiveness of interacting with the renderer has also improved.
Easy QueryingUsers can now quickly and easily query parts of the model, including:
- Measuring distances between nodes
- Hovering over plates for node and element information
- Hovering over members for section info
- Hovering over plate and member analysis results to query that result:
API AccessWant to use the Renderer for your own solutions? The new renderer is also now available via the SkyCiv API - build your own custom solutions and make the most of the SkyCiv Renderer in your tools. Save yourself the time of building a 3D graphic system, with SkyCiv you can use ours directly! We're excited to release this new functionality to all users. As with all of our core upgrades, this is included in your subscription and we hope you continue to enjoy the software!
