Building your as-is state is possible via the following ways or tools:
When building in VR, you can use the 2D templates to align objects correctly or to recreate them. Using the 2D template, you can place image files, such as JPG and PNG formats, on the ground. Use this feature to place existing 2D layouts or photos from the top view. You can also convert existing 2D DWG data into an image file, e.g. with AutoCAD, and use it in Halocline.
Use the notepad to call up photos of your existing work area and place them in your mind's eye. Put a tape measure in the picture to get a better idea of the dimensions. Of course, you can also call up other images here, such as technical drawings and screenshots of orders or material lists.
Existing 3D data
You can import existing 3D data via the CAD import. You can convert existing point clouds or 3D scans into a supported format and bring them into Halocline. Make sure they are not too large, because the larger the amount of data, the more processing power is required. This can lead to bad experiences (long loading times and jerking of the image).
To get customizable objects from the imported models, choose the "Boxes" import option. The boxes generated this way depend on the construction of the source data. If the result is not satisfactory, you can rebuild the model yourself.
To do this, turn off the collision with the imported 3D data. To do this, go to the VR menu and select Settings > Grid > CAD Object Collision: "Off". Now you can rebuild the geometry in the 3D data or place existing library elements in it.
After you have recreated the 3D data, you can set the collision again in the settings menu and delete the template. This is a good way to recreate existing 3D data and adjust it during the planning process.
Building layouts in Halocline is fast, but you don't always want to start from scratch. We provide you with a variety of standard elements that you can import and save in your library. You can then place them in Layout and customize them to your needs. You can find the standard elements as well as elements from our partners item Industrietechnik and Bosch Rexroth in our download area.
Help us to provide more standards!
You have created your own elements and want to share them with the Halocline community? Great, then send us your elements to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll add them to the community elements.
