Click on the button opens a menu. With the help of the menu you can save and print image on the 3D World, as well as export 3D view areas and coverage to DXF files.

 

 

Multiply resolution

 

You can get images with resolution (size in pixels) larger than the size of the 3D World window and even larger than the size of screen in Windows. The item opens a submenu where you can select a multiplication factor of image resolution when saving and printing relative to image resolution in the 3D World.

 

Save as

 

The item opens a submenu where you can select format of output file with image from the 3D World.

 

You can increase size in pixel of the output file.

 

Copy to clipboard

 

Copy image from the 3D World to Windows clipboard.  After that the image can be pasted to other program, for example MS Word.

 

You can increase size in pixel of the output file.

 

Export 3D view areas to dxf

 

Export displayed in the 3D World view areas to AutoCAD DXF file. View areas are exported with shadows, lens distortion, spatial resolution, in the same form as displayed.

View areas are exported as AutoCAD blocks. To attributes of the block the most important parameters of the camera are recorded: Name, Model, Lens focal length, Height of installation, Base height, Heights of view area lower and upper bounds, View angles, Number of pixels, Spatial resolution pattern.

Obtained DXF file can be imported into the most of general 3D design software, for example SketchUP.

 

This feature allows the convenient scheme of work with combination of 3D BIM Software (SketchUP) + VideoCAD.

1. Export layout as a 3D model-territory through SketchUP and loading it into VideoCAD.

2. Adding cameras with 3D view areas in VideoCAD.

3. Export 3D view areas in DXF format, loading them into 3D BIM Software and combining with the original layout in 3D.

Export coverage to dxf

 

Export displayed in the 3D World active camera coverage with 3D view area to AutoCAD DXF file. The coverage is exported with shadows, lens distortion, spatial resolution, in the same form as displayed.

Obtained DXF file can be imported into the most of general 3D design software, for example SketchUP.

The Coverage is exported in the form of 3D polygon mesh. Mesh resolution, and hence the number of polygons is determined by the Resolution of calculating coverage. If the resolution is set to Normal or High, it will produce a large number of polygons, the exported file will be huge and it takes a lot of processing time.

Printer setup

 

Open standard printer setup dialog.

 

Print

 

Print image from the 3D World on the current printer.

 

You can increase resolution of the printed file.
