6.1. First Row: Options
The term Skybox describes a sixsided cube that surrounds the 3D model in order to locate it in a environment, for example, with a cloudy sky, mountains on the horizon and a river flowing under the model. TWINSPECT® containt several default skyboxes from the categories default, clouds, space and terrain and custom skyboxes may be added aswell. The Show-Checkbox applies the selected Skybox to the model without closing the dialog.
This button toggles the transparency of the ground. Especially if a skybox with terrain is activated, the ground should be deactivated, otherwise it will hide the terrain surface.
This button toggles the visibility of the grid.
- Skybox with terrain activated, grid and ground deactivated
- Skybox with terrain and grid activated, ground deactivated
- Skybox with terrain and ground activated, grid deactivated
- Skybox with terrain, grid and ground activated
- Skybox deactivated, grid and ground activated
- Skybox and grid deactivated, ground activated
- Skybox and ground deactivated, grid activated
This button toggles the visibility of the axes X (red), Y (green) and Z (blue).
This button toggles the visibility of the pivot point which is the point in the 3D model around which all rotations, scaling and movements in orbital navigation are centered. If activated, the pivot point is visible when the left mouse button is held down and the mouse is moved.
If activated, instead of the 3D model a cloud of colored points in space will represent the 3D structure of the project.
If activated, instead of the 3D model a triangle mesh wireframe of the 3D structure where a line is drawn at the location of each edge connecting to another edge.
By default, the textures of the 3D model are one sided, so that they appear to be transparent from the inside. If Double Sided is activated, the texture will be visible from both sides.
Certain screens for desktop computers or notebooks with touch functionality cannot be reliably detected as non-mobile devices. Since mobile device navigation is activated under these circumstances, operation with mouse and keyboard, for example, may be disabled or incorrect. If desktop mode is enabled, the incorrect detection as a mobile device is overwritten.
