11. Select the processed ZIP file, click the Rebuild button, and confirm in the information window to accelerate and package the architectural scene file.

12. During the building process, the file status shows “Accelerating.” Refresh the page. When the status displays “Acceleration Completed,” the file is successfully built, and you can open this building scene using DataMesh Inspector.

In DataMesh Inspector, the Roaming mode allows users to freely navigate and explore the building scene to view different parts of the model and conduct inspections. Roaming mode helps users gain a better understanding of the architectural design and structure in the Virtual Building Information Model (BIM).

1. Log in DataMesh Inspector.

2. On the Architectural Scene homepage, click the desired scene. If no QR codes are added for positioning, the scene will open in Roaming mode by default. If QR codes are added, you can choose to open the scene in Roaming mode when accessing it.

3. Roam within the architectural scene using two joysticks and up-down arrows to adjust the camera height in Roaming mode.

    • Horizontal movement: Use the left joystick to pan and zoom the camera view horizontally, moving the camera position on the horizontal plane. By sliding the joystick, you can move the camera left, right, forward, and backward to explore different areas of the architectural scene.
    • Rotation and observation: Utilize the right joystick to rotate the camera, changing the viewing angle. This allows you to inspect the architectural model from various perspectives for a better understanding of its structure and design.
    • Adjust camera height: The up-down arrow buttons are typically used to adjust the camera’s height. This enables you to move up and down within the architectural scene to view different floors or heights of the structure.

In Roaming mode, you can add positioning QR codes for inspection areas. By configuring these designated QR codes, you can quickly switch the camera position to specific locations in Roaming mode. Moreover, you have the option to utilize these QR codes to place the corresponding architectural scene model in its real-world location, viewing the architectural scene in MR mode.

1. After opening the architectural scene, when roaming to common locations such as entrances, passages, or rooms, click the QR code list button  in the left-side functional navigation to expand the QR list.

2. To add a new QR code, click on the + Add button at the top, and a QR code icon will promptly appear at the center of the screen.

3. The QR code will automatically attach to the nearest model based on the camera’s position and angle. Use the joystick and the up-down arrows on the right to fine-tune the QR code’s placement to a recognizable location. Confirm its placement by clicking on the Drop button.

4. After placing the QR code, a pop-up window will appear for naming. It is recommended to provide a distinctive name for each QR code to facilitate easy identification of different locations.

5. In the QR list, you can perform various operations on the added QR codes, including renaming, adjusting positions, and deleting as needed.

6. In the QR list, you can perform various operations on the added QR codes, including renaming, adjusting positions, and deleting as needed.

Concepts

Architectural Scene: A large spatial project that includes the spatial data and generated record content that the user wants to view.

Annotation: A checklist composed of marks and recorded data generated by the user each time they view the architectural scene.

Architectural Scene Resources: The spatial data content that the user views, including all component models in the scene and their related information.

Architectural Scene Inspection: By scanning the QR code, the architectural scene data overlays onto the construction site, allowing for a visual comparison between BIM design and the actual conditions. The comparison process generates text records, image attachments, and color-coded marks, which are compiled into a scene annotation. This enables the retrieval and modification of historical inspections directly at the scene. The aim of scene inspection is to offer intuitive reference and guidance for the construction team or project supervisors, thereby minimizing rework costs and enhancing construction efficiency.

Overview

DataMesh Inspector stands out as a robust mixed reality tool designed for mobile devices, offering users a seamless mixed reality experience. Its significance extends across the entire building life cycle, encompassing design review and disclosure, construction plan simulation, progress management, completion acceptance, and post-operation maintenance. By leveraging mixed reality technology, the Inspector superimposes BIM files onto the real work site, facilitating 3D design visualization, cloud data transmission, and collaborative work aligned with business processes.

DataMesh Inspector facilitates digital transformation within the construction process, offering users a more intuitive and interactive work experience that enhances collaboration and communication across different stages. Users can seamlessly access and interact with digital resources in the real world, effortlessly monitor project progress, coordinate collaboration among various stakeholders, conduct quality inspections, and manage post-operation and maintenance tasks.

Reference

Every role in the scene has a 3D coordinate that tells us the location of its center relative to the origin point, which is at 0,0,0. The three numbers in the coordinate represent the X, Y, and Z axis values respectively. When facing the origin point from the front, the X axis spans from your right to your left, the Y axis spans from up to down, and the Z axis spans from forward to backward. In each case, the value of the axis increases towards the former direction and becomes negative and decreases towards the latter direction once it reaches the origin point. Keep in mind that these directions are liable to change based on the rotation of your perspective.

In the example below, you can see both the origin point and a point that is located at (7, 3, 4). When viewing the origin point from the front, the point will appear to be 7 units to the right, 3 units above, and 4 units in front of the origin point. On the other hand, if we were to see a point that is located at (-7, -3, -4), it would appear to be 7 units to the left, 3 units below, and 4 units behind the origin point.

Interaction position and assessment

When you have a DataMesh Learn license, you can use the location position and assessment features in DataMesh Studio to create training and assessment scenarios.

You can set up user interactions with the scenario by adding link actions or interaction position to characters, thus creating scenarios with assessment tasks and scoring. Through these interactive actions, users can complete assessment tasks, and their performance can be evaluated and assessed based on their actions.

This feature allows you to assess the viewer’s ability to move a role from a starting location to a target location while viewing the scenario in mixed reality, which can simulate machine assembly, disassembly, repairs, and more.

Add an interaction position

In DataMesh Studio, you can add interaction positions for models and tools, and configure relevant parameters to achieve precise interaction effects, such as initial position, target position, tolerance angle range, automatic attraction range, etc.

The steps to add interaction positions to roles are as follows:

1. Select the role, then press the white Enter Interactive Build button in the attributes pane.

2. A prompt should appear at the top of the workspace, which signifies that you have entered interactive building mode. From here, you can drag, rotate, and resize the model into your desired target location.

3. Users can set the interaction position in the attributes pane. For example, customize the interaction name, set the target position of the role, etc.

The Interaction pane is shown in the figure below:

    • Name: This is the name of the interactive position, which can be viewed from the Scene Attributes pane.
    • Initial Position: This parameter shows the starting position and rotation of the role and is grayed out during target mode. To change the initial position, exit target mode to move the role, then return to target mode.
    • Target Location: This parameter shows the coordinates and rotation of the target location. You can change this by dragging and rotating the model in the workspace, or by manually inputting the values.
    • Rotation Offset: This is an optional parameter that allows you to configure how similar the angle of the role needs to be to the target location in order to lock into place.
    • Automatic Adsorption Range: This is an optional parameter that allows you to configure how far away the role needs to be from the target location in order to lock into place.

4. Click on the top corner of the Interaction pane, click YES in the popping up box to save the operation.

Check the interaction position list

Click on the workspace and then select the Interaction dropdown icon in the scene, all the position interaction within the scene will be shown in the attributes pane.

The interaction position list is arranged in ascending order of creation time, displaying interaction order, name, description, and operations.

Operations supported by the interaction position list:

1. Delete: Press the trash can icon to remove the interaction.

2. Move up or down: Click the up or down icons to change the order of interactions.

3. Edit: Click interaction name to enter interaction edition mode to edit the position interaction.

A task refers to a specific objective that scenario editors can set for viewers in order for them to progress through the scenario. Tasks can be used to guide viewers through a simulated workflow, test viewers to see what they would do during certain situations and evaluate their performance. You can also set task categories in order to test for different criteria, and you can set numerical score values for each task in order to quantitatively assess the effectiveness of each viewer.

Create a task type

Steps for creating task types are as follows:

1. Click Assessment in the Menu and then select the Task option. In the toolbar, go to Assessment > Task.

2. In the Task List, click the Task Type Management link in order to manage your categories.

3. In the Task Type List, click the Add button to open the Task Type window.

4. In the pop-up window, set the parameters of your new type. Below is an explanation of each parameter.

    • Type Name: Enter the type name here. Each task that belongs to this category will display a label containing this name in the task list. The character limit is 18, with no restriction on character format.
    • Color: This changes what color the type label is. Changing this allows you to easily differentiate between categories in the task list. The default color is red.
    • Initial Score: This allows you to set the maximum score a viewer can earn for this category.
    • Whether to Participate in Scoring: If this option is enabled, you could enter a passing grade to easily see if viewers passed or failed in this category.

5. Click Confirm to add your new type.

Create a task

The steps to create a new task are as follows:

1. In the toolbar, go to Assessment > Task.

2. In the Task List, click the Add button to open the Task Template window.

DataMesh Studio provides two task templates for you to select:

    • Page redirect score: This type of task scores the viewer based on their progression through the scenario. This is effective when utilized in choice-based scenes that navigate to other scenes based on the viewer’s choice.
    • Interaction Score: This type of task scores the viewer based on them performing the correct actions in each scene. This is effective when utilized in hands-on scenes where the viewer must place a component in the correct location.

When a scenario is created with the purpose of testing viewers, some scenarios can have a linear progression through their scenes, while others may need to jump around between scenes using the link action. The navigation window allows you to control how viewers are able to navigate between scenes, ensuring that they cannot skip forwards or backwards in an unintended order.

To modify the scenario playback mode, you can click on the scenario menu, select Modify Play Mode.

In the window of Modify Play Mode, you have two options to limit or enhance the viewer’s ability to travel between scenes.

Whether to turn pages: If this option is enabled, viewers can freely travel to the next scene whenever they want. Disabling this option ensures that they have to fulfill any conditions you have set before moving forward.

Whether the stage list is required: When this is enabled, viewers can see the table of contents, and select any scene that it contains in order to travel to that scene.

Customize spatial positioning methods

In DataMesh One, users are able to view DataMesh Studio scenarios in Mixed Reality. To ensure that the digital objects are to the desired scale relative to the real environment, DataMesh One user can change the size of the overall scenario, and typically use all roles from the first scene in order to perform adjustments. To ensure that all digital objects are scale relative to each other, DataMesh Studio provides two tools to help scenario editors maintain spatial awareness while engineering their scenes: Reference Models and QR Marker.

Reference Models are transparent models that cannot be selected, edited, or moved unless you are in reference mode, and are completely invisible when the scenario is playing. They allow you to position your roles in relation to it, without interfering with your editing process.

Here is how to utilize reference models in your scenes:

1. To enter reference mode, select Scenario > Modify Scenario Positioning from the toolbar.

2. Find the model you would like to use as your reference model in the resources pane, then drag it into the workspace. In reference mode, you can freely position and adjust your reference model.

3. Once you are done, click the Quit button at the top right of your workspace to exit reference mode.

4. Play the scenario in DataMesh One and use joystick position scenario.

Note: In DataMesh One, the Position Reference setting needs to be set to First Frame, aligning with the first frame of the first scene in the script for positioning.

5. Click  to complete positioning.

QR Markers allow you to view your scenario in Mixed Reality through multiple locations in the virtual space. Each QR Marker corresponds to a QR code, and by scanning a physical copy of that code using DataMesh One, you can generate the digital roles found in your scenario. The layout and position of your roles depends on where you placed your QR Markers and which QR code you scanned. You can also toggle between horizontal markers for QR codes on the floor or a table, and vertical markers for QR codes on the wall.

Note: DataMesh FactVerse Services does not support downloading positioning codes from scenarios created using versions of DataMesh Studio prior to 5.5. To download the positioning codes, you need to open the scenario using DataMesh Studio 5.5 or above, re-upload the scenario, and then you will be able to download the included positioning codes from the FactVerse Service platform.

The steps for using QR code positioning are as follows:

1. Click the Scenario menu in the menu and select Modify Scenario Positioning from the drop-down menu to enter positioning mode.

2. Select the QR code (QR Code_ <number>) that needs to be positioned from the Roles pane and drag it to the desired location.

3. Click a blank space in the workspace to deselect the QR code. Then, in the attributes pane, click the Add Marker button under the Stage Attributes section to add a new marker.

Note: In DataMesh Studio versions 5.6 and up, the maximum number of markers you can add is 100. Otherwise, you can only add up to 10.

Clicking the Remove Marker button per time will sequentially delete a QR code within the scene from back to front.

4. Click the Quit button to exit the positioning mode, edit the scenario and save it.

5. Log in DataMesh FactVerse Services, find the scenario and download the locating code in the detail page of the scenario file.

6. Print the downloaded positioning code.

7. In the MR mode of DataMesh One, scan the QR code printed in step 6 and then the model will appear above the QR code.
