»Hello Twyn!« – For the hot summer season we are back with a fresh release and new features:
Release 1.5 brings several updates: interactive clipping and annotations in the AR view, as well as an improved UI in Twyn Studio that makes working more intuitive and faster.
The new versions of Twyn Studio and View are available for download. Get them now.
Clipping & Annotations In AR
Interactive Clipping Area
To get even better insights about the differences between target and actual of an inspected object, the Lens Tool now offers a clipping mode that crops the augmented 3D data in a freely adjustable area.
This allows to perform a target-actual comparison along the clipping, or to inspect the real object behind the augmentation more closely. By interacting with the clipped area, the real part can be compared even faster and more directly against the CAD specification – detail by detail.
Starting with version 1.5, Twyn enables to create and present annotations. With them, additional information can be displayed and spatially located in relation to the physical component.
Besides geometric data, 3D models often contain additional information. This can be detailed metadata such as the torque of a screw, production notes or the material properties of an object. Since such information often cannot be fully represented in AR, annotations are used as an interactive reference for the representation.
As of version 1.5, annotations can be created in Studio and positioned in relation to the CAD/3D model. In Twyn View, these can then be viewed in AR, spatially located at the exact position on the real component. Detailed information can then be shown by simply clicking on the corresponding annotation.
Updates in Twyn Studio
In the project view, you can now switch between a list view and a »grid view« with thumbnails. Small thumbnails provide a preview of each project and make it easier to keep track of them.
»Duplicate Project« enables to create a 1:1 copy of an existing project, in order to either build a new one out of it, or to make modifications to the copy without overwriting the original project. This saves tedious click work, because all settings and data are is duplicated as well.
»Add as Reference Inspection…«
This functionality uses the selected project as a reference and creates a template from it as a blueprint for future inspection projects of the same pattern or type. Meta data, such as the deviation characteristics and inspection steps, are as well transferred to the template.
When creating a new project, you can then choose to create it from a template or as a blank project.
»Hallo Twyn« – Docs now also Available in German
