MR Mode

In MR mode, you can explore architectural scenes using your mobile device. MR mode comes with scene settings that let you adjust object opacity and the dynamic loading range.

Opacity: You can adjust the opacity of objects in the scene, making them appear semi-transparent or completely see-through in the MR environment. This allows for clearer views of the surrounding environment and other objects while navigating the scene, improving object visibility and user-friendliness.

Dynamic loading range: This feature ensures that, in MR/3D mode, models are displayed based on your actual spatial location within a certain range. It caters to the needs of frontline business applications by allowing for the viewing of 3D models, real space, and their fusion. This setup limits the total size of models within a given space and continuously updates the models within a certain range as you move, ensuring smooth operation of the Inspector during business tasks and delivering a stable interactive experience for users.

Geometry

Geometry refers to the structural hierarchy of all components in the architectural scene. When you select a particular component model, it becomes visible, and deselecting it hides it. For instance, some walls situated in construction paths might be built in the later stages. During inspection, it is important to hide these yet-to-be-constructed walls for a clearer view. Therefore, selectively hiding certain components becomes essential.

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.
