In Halocline Layout & Performance you have the possibility to import your hall environment or hall architecture in glTF format. This gives you a realistic image of your (factory) hall including steel beams, windows or ventilation pipes.
What is glTF?
glTF is a special format that describes VR & AR scenes. Typically, it includes geometric information as well as light sources and the like. It is a standardized file format for 3D scenes and models and is supported by many CAD and 3D modeling applications (possibly with plug-ins). So you have the possibility to convert and adapt the desired hall environments in-house or via a service provider in the future. After the conversion you can use them directly in Halocline Layout & Performance.
How do I prepare the data?
You can find instructions for data preparation here.
Feel free to pass this link on to the person who prepares the data. The preparation takes place before the import of Halocline and in third party software and is not a feature of Halocline.
You don't have any hall geometries, or you don't have anyone who can prepare them for you? No problem. We can prepare your hall environment as a service for you. If you are interested, please contact your contact person or firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I import a glTF file?
Whether you want to replace your old .assetbundle file with your new gITF file or add a new gITF file for the hall environment, you can import it into Halocline Layout & Performance as follows:
- Open Halocline Layout & Performance
- On the left side of the start screen, select the desired store floor from the drop-down menu.
- Open the "three-dot" menu next to the store floor name.
- Click on "Change Dimension" and select "Shopfloor environment" there.
- Select the desired file and confirm with "OK".
Your shop floor environment has now been successfully imported.
With the release of Halocline Layout & Performance in version 2022.4, only hall models in glTF format are supported. We no longer support the previous file format .assetbundle as of this version. An import of a CAD file is still possible.
If you currently have an existing hall model, we have converted it to the new gITF format for you and will make it available to you separately. If you have any questions, please contact our support team(email@example.com).
